Custom Shirting with the Hop this Weekend!
Come and visit us Friday September 15th and Saturday September 16th. We're so excited to host Vincent Nasserbakht of the Hop NYC here in the shop. If you've been to Vestis in the past, you've probably come across some of their wares - they always bring incredible fabrics, great fits, and an understated elegance to the table. Their grey Bleecker and navy Rosebud shirts are among our favorite offerings and we've returned to them year after year. We're truly lucky to be among their tiny handful of stockists that sell their clothing.
What you may not know is that custom shirting is the Hop's bread and butter - it's how they rose to prominence and what they do best. They currently outfit John Oliver and have counted Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, Glenn O'Brien, and Duane Allman as previous clients. They've been tailoring in their family for 4 generations - with the trade being passed down from father to son. Vincent and Ted learned the trade from their father and they'll be bringing that accumulated knowledge to Vestis this weekend.
They have an incredible archive of rare and exotic fabrics from around the world - from dress to casual to everything in between. Pricing will start at $300, depending on the level of customization - it's all up to you. Once they take your measurements, choose collar style, cuff, pocketing - anything you'd like they can do. And the best part? If they have your measurements on file, just call them up or visit them in their beautiful Nolita storefront, pick out a fabric and have them make you another. No better guarantee of a great fit.
The event will run Friday from 9 AM - 8 PM (or longer depending on demand) and Saturday from 9 AM - 6 PM. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment - we're pretty booked already but will do whatever we can to accommodate you. While you wait, sip on complimentary wine from Barsotti Wines and enjoy a selection of olives and charcuterie.
