2 Love It
Save it

Though the FIT grad cut his teeth toiling for Michael Kors and Kenneth Cole, Kamaal Kadri learned the most about his trade from his father, who was a tailor for the British Raj. Fittings take place in the Garment District at Mood Fabrics, where clients can select the fabric directly from a ream of cloth in the traditional manner. Kadri sketches the desired garment and sends it to a small team in India, where an estimated 10,000 stitches and 40 hours of work are poured into the handcrafted suit ($1,500–$2,500). Kadri is big on details, and it shows: Suits are lined with pure silk and horsehair canvas, and trimmed with smoked-horn, mother of pearl buttons and silk-thread buttonholes. Such fastidious care makes it worth the wait of up to eight weeks.
