Huntsman officially opened an expansive, 2,030 square-foot Pied-a-Terre to meet the needs of their New York-based clients that have been expeditiously growing in number. Huntsman has long-stood as an unprecedented bespoke tailor for the the discerning gentleman and lady as well as a personal favorite for various members of royalty and those among noble lineages since it was founded in 1849. With over a century in bespoke tailoring, Huntsman naturally gained the reputation of being traditional yet extraordinarily innovative in creating sportswear and finely-tailored apparel throughout the years. The recently opened New York City location, which at one point was legendary crooner Tony Bennett’s apartment, has been remodeled to perfectly demonstrate a modern meets classic design style.
The new House of Huntsman, situated at 130 W. 57th Street on the 9th floor, is an appointment-only space that is large enough to serve as a “club” that is rather similar to Huntsman’s acclaimed Savile Row location. The Pied-a-Terre includes a zealous cutting room, a private fitting room, and a double-height lounge for client reception, which also functions as the fabric library.
The expanded square-footage was essentially due to Huntsman’s extensive effort on hiring expert staff and many skilled couturiers. The new location even included veteran menswear executive, Ed Turco (formerly of Loro Piana), as their US Director of Operations and Huntsman’s in-house cutter, Ralph Fitzgerald, was also relocated to New York City to accept full-time cutting duties.
The interior design of the Pied-a-Terre, which features aesthetic allure throughout each room, comprises of a 24-foot bookshelf from an 18th century British castle, two 1930’s mahogany steamer trunk wardrobes made on Berkeley Street in London, a 1933 Betty Joel walnut Art Deco desk (referred as her chef d’oeuvre), and vintage Ado Chale tables. The space includes Huntsman’s very own original bespoke measurement parchment from prominent clients such as Hubert de Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, Ronald Reagan, and Audrey Hepburn. In addition, the space also introduces an original Andy Warhol portrait of Dick Banks and an Anthony McCall drawing.
Located in midtown Manhattan, the new Pied-a-Terre represents Huntsman’s many years of growth in producing bespoke tailoring, as well as yet another place for their increasingly enlarging client base to further grow. Huntsman was made the go-to destination for clients looking for custom-tailored clothing, which perfectly beseemed each individual’s own personal measurements. With no miscalculations or errors in the design, the custom-tailored clothes from Huntsman can’t feel more comfortable or more natural to wear once it has been fitted to your exact dimension.
The new Huntsman’s New York pied-a-terre on 130 West 57th Street, allows NYC residents to schedule their appointments by email at email@example.com or by phone at 646-590-2595.
