An unlikely neighborhood is becoming New York’s new center of tailored clothing.
NEW YORK — There’s something incongruous about Michael Mantegna and his surroundings: he—in natty, peak-lapel, blue pinstripe suit with contrasting vest, pocket square and perfectly burnished shoes—and the area that surrounds his shop, New York’s Lower East Side, the tenement-lined “bargain district” that, despite its recent gentrification, is still a neighborhood in transition, and not at first blush a likely location for a high-end, custom tailor shop.
