With Atelier Scotch its about intrinsic value and quality to take modern tailoring to the next level, while fit is leading. Every single item of our collection is studied as a separate unique piece. We believe that the modern gentlemen will appreciate this and that we offer something that is not yet available.

The love that Scotch & Soda has for details is refined within Atelier Scotch, but recognizable throughout the collection. Fabrics and prints were all developed in-house.

Accessories are an easy tool for spicing up an everyday suited look. We offer a wide range of luxury accessories for the modern gentleman. Think of silk jacquard ties or pocket squares, classic alpaca blend scarves or an elegant flower pin as great options.

Spruce up your closet with a touch of Dutch couture by way of Atelier Scotch.


Saks and SNL Fête Key to the Cure at Gramercy Park Hotel

See who stopped by to celebrate the coming-together of these New York institutions.

The saying “laughter is the best medicine” hasn’t felt so true to the Saks Fifth Avenue family as it has this year when we teamed up with our Rockefeller Center neighbors Saturday Night Live for 2014′s Key to the Cure initiative. They’ve proven to be stellar partners, with some of the cast, new and old, appearing in the campaign sporting Rag & Bone’s KTTC tee.

This year, we went one step further and asked the show’s Costume Designer, Tom Broecker, to team up with New York’s best designers to recreate some of the show’s fan favorite character’s outfits for our racks. It all culminated in the party of the season in New York’s Gramercy Park Hotel.  See who stopped by to celebrate the occasion.

“It’s really amazing to be a part of the campaign and its really a cool thing that they included us,” said Vanessa Bayer of SNL. “In ten years for our 50th anniversary I would love to see a nice well tailored Bar Mitzvah suit inspired by my Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy character, topped off with a cool Rag & Bone yarmulke.”

Normally men are loyal to brands because of the fit of the suit. I think we are moving into a new phase in the life cycle of the suit. Most recently the suit has been worn together (jacket and pant) or paired with tonal denim, but as sportswear becomes more prevalent, the opportunity to style suits with unexpected items, such as sweatpants, opens up the need to purchase a completely different style of jacket.

Where Old World Class Meets Modern World Cool

Hybrids (with sweatshirt or nylon sleeves) are breaking down the boundaries of not only how a suit can be worn, but also where it can be worn.

Accessorizing your suit is paramount in the colder months when we gravitate to dark tones. Pocket squares, lapel pins and unapologetic ties can create immediate and distinctive style to any suit.  The smaller the accessory is, the bolder you should go.

I actually don’t wear full suits that often, however, when I do, I normally wear louder patterns than most men might consider. That said, I think it’s about layering the unexpected underneath your traditional suit. The most important thing is to have fun, be bold; it’s good to stand out.

Look like a new-world ideal gent when you shop the Modern Tailored Event.
