Long Read For Friday P.M.: Martin Greenfield, From Auschwitz To The White HouseTweet
The famous Martin Greenfield is basically America’s tailor of record. It’s the cause which designers including Band of Outsiders’ Scott Sternberg, Rag & Bone’s David Neville plus Marcus Wainwright, plus Paul Marlow of Loden Dager turn to him (plus today, his sons plus company partners) whenever they require standard function for their labels. It’s furthermore the cause which menswear journalists plus editors begin calling—in my experience, at minimum, the guy doesn’t email—whenever a story about tailoring beckons. So numerous have which I felt reasonably certain which I might not want another Greenfield profile—until I read Ned Martel’s inside the Washington Post this week. It provides up certain fun fresh details, including which Greenfield plus his sons-turned-business-partners created a limited visits to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue throughout President Obama’s tenure. (Greenfield doesn’t name names whom don’t name him initially, nevertheless he has created matches for a number of previous presidents, Mayor Bloomberg, plus more.) But it furthermore goes deeper than any Greenfield homage I’ve read regarding his existence before WWII, his experience inside the focus camps, and just how he eventually became an open secret inside Washington amidst legions of ill-suited politicos. And about this matter, there appears to be which rarest thing of all: bipartisan agreement.
