Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

As if stints as an architect, T-shirt designer and co-owner of superhip eatery Freemans weren’t enough to secure his status as a renaissance man, Taavo Somer rolled out Freemans Sporting Club, a handsome line of men’s bespoke suits. Hand-sewn in a Brooklyn factory, each made-to-measure piece is tailored from vintage dead-stock cloth that Somer himself sources. While the Club will gladly produce a traditional suit, Somer leans toward an old-world fit, with shorter jackets, lower-waisted pants and bootcut legs. Customers peruse fabrics—among others, pinstripe wool and superfine cashmere—and have their measurements taken in the Club’s pool-table-equipped headquarters. Six weeks after their visit, dudes are presented with the finished work: sport coats ($1,780), two-piece suits ($1,980) or a three-piece version ($2,280) bearing such exquisite touches as English canvas pockets and sheer gossamer lining. The shop also offers a well-curated selection of apothecary goods and home accessories.
