Michael Andrews Bespoke has acquired Kozinn+Sons Merchant Tailors.
The New York-based custom tailor will re-brand Kozinn+Sons, which has been around for over a century, and operate it under the Michael Andrews Bespoke label that was founded a decade ago.
This is MAB’s first acquisition in the U.S. and largest to date. The company has tried to expand into custom women’s clothing and men’s made-to-measure.
“Kozinn+Sons is a New York institution,” said Michael Andrews, founder and chief executive officer of Michael Andrews Bespoke. “In addition to the family’s multigenerational experience and century-old pattern archives, we’re particularly looking forward to delving further into the theatrical component of their business for which they have become so well known.”
Kozinn+Sons was previously named Saint Laurie but changed its name in 2017 after years of litigation with Yves Saint Laurent.
“Our heritage dovetails perfectly with Michael Andrews’ innovative approach and reinforces our role as ‘keepers of the flame’ for handmade custom clothing,” said Andy Kozinn, Kozinn+Sons’ third-generation ceo. “My family’s legacy lives on through our shared commitment to quality, craftsmanship and service. I am looking forward to welcoming Kozinn clients to MAB’s world-class operation.”
