CityScope® magazine Southern Gentleman™ - Sartorial Statements from Local Clothiers
There’s nothing quite like a well-tailored suit. It makes a man seem taller, trimmer, and stronger. Whether you buy off-the-rack or made-to-measure, a tailor can transform a piece of cloth into a sartorial statement worth making.
Chris Lesar is sporting a beautiful houndstooth flannel suit with peak lapels, putting a refined spin on this old Welsh cloth. Paired with the more subtle-patterned shirt, complementary pocket square, and striped wool tie, the blending of textures and patterns creates a cohesive look.
