Michael Andrews studied Industrial Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was a prestigious President’s Scholar. He then went on to receive his JD/MBA from Northwestern Law School and the Kellogg School of Management.
He studied in Georgia, Chicago, London and Amsterdam then started a successful career as a consultant and a lawyer where we worked on billions of dollars worth of deals.
After 8 years of donning a corporate business suit, of which he could never find the proper fit or details, he felt the tailoring business could use some new blood.
In 2006 he founded Michael Andrews Bespoke (MAB) with the vision of crafting high-end, but affordable, custom menswear that is both modern and sophisticated.
Six years later MAB has become NYC’s premiere custom clothier and there’s a waiting list to book an appointment in their epic “gentlemen’s club style” studio.
Michael still wears a suit and tie most days, only it fits much better, it’s made exactly how he wants it, and it has his name embroidered on the inside.
Here Michael shows us what he wears through a typical week as a clothier.
“Mondays are as close as I get to a day off. I’m usually still in the office but try not to schedule too many meetings as I use the day to catch up and get ready for the week.
Today I am dressed pretty casually so I can grab drinks with a friend right after work.”
“The tweed herringbone vest is part of a three-piece suit so it gets double duty for work and play.
One of the things we often preach in the shop, when a client is designing a garment, is to think about wearability and versatility.”
