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.

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.

VIP guests and fans alike were invited to celebrate with Carmelo the launch of Giorgio Armani’s Wall Street Suit collection – the new made-to-measure full canvas edition suits, available exclusively at Saks. Carmelo arrived looking incredibly stylish in a made-to-measure Armani suit for the festive occasion.

Overall the event played beautifully against the Giorgio Armani space on the men’s floor on 6th, but there was also a notable philanthropic note to the festivities. Both Armani and Saks will be donating 10% of the proceeds from sales of the new Wall Street Suit Collection to the Carmelo Anthony Foundation, a non-profit that empowers those living in under-privileged communities to triumph past their given circumstances through initiatives in education, recreation and community outreach.
