This Italian couture men’s designer has opened his first U.S. boutique in the landmark Edwardian Room of the Plaza Hotel. The elegant space reflects its former glory as an early-20th-century men-only café with its original, intricately painted wood ceilings and opulent chandeliers. The luxe menswear ($300–$65,000) is housed in lacquered wood, glass and velvet display cases. All the products in the shop are handmade in Italy and can be custom-made to your choice of cut, fabric, color and monogramming. Splurge on alligator and crocodile briefcases ($10,000), monogrammed leather loafers ($1,000–$2,000), and wool, silk or linen suits ($3,500–$7,000). Finish off your dapper new look with silk and cotton ties ($300–$500), or go casual in leather-and-metal-detailed jeans ($1,000).
