David is known for his impeccable style, detailed tailoring and custom-fitted high end couture suit label, which is worn and coveted by an impressive mix of business, sports, and entertainment power players from coast to coast.

David has designed a few fresh looks to help you raise your game to a new level when pulling together your wardrobe for the upcoming Spring/Summer season.

The central theme for spring is color, and this is best achieved through a combination of soothing solids, bold plaids, crisp checks, great shoes & luxe accessories. Think alligator leather belts, beige Italian leather shoes, hip but eleganttennis shoes and ultra-lite summer weight cashmere fabrics and knits as well as great denim and chinos. Combine all of these elements to help give your wardrobe a well needed shot in the “fashion arm.”

This look puts a fresh spin on classic Hampton sophistication. Navy, cranberry & grey plaid super 150’s wool and silk blend Sport Coat, layered over a cranberry, pink & white striped sport shirt. Don’t forget the subtle effect of a colorful pocket-square when properly tucked into the breast pocket of any sport coat. Combine this with a tailored pair of charcoal grey or navy dress slack for an elegant day in the city or dress it down with a pair of blue or white jeans.

Don’t be afraid to try a more tailored silhouette, I promise you will never go back to the boxy alternative. A classic navy sport coat paired with a bold but elegant plaid shirt and a dark navy/plum tie

This is a great look which embraces a new version of a classic wardrobe staple…the “solid black suit”. This “must have” beauty is sleek black, super 180’s ultra-lite wool with 3% stretch for ultimate comfort, soft constructed and quarter lined. Combine it with a beautiful large plaid shirt, in lavender & white and slip on a narrow lavender satin basket weave tie and you’re more than good to go!

Steer away from the traditional choices of a belt in black, brown, or burgundy and swap it out for navy with a contrasting white saddle stitch instead. It’s a great change of pace and pairs well with a white stretch denim or linen pant.

Last but definitely not least…another great clothing item that you will want to include in your cache of spring looks, which has quickly become a must have in every man’s wardrobe is the “subtle check print” tailored Sport Coat. Not to be confused with your grandfathers Sport Coat! New weaving technology has really allowed these prints to be refined and have resulted in beautiful, sharp, elegant patterns. They look great with slacks or jeans for almost any informal occasion.

Time to think outside the “Box” for a more casual daytime or evening event. A slim fitting pant embellished with a hip print stands out among a sea of repetition. Combine these pants with a classic but tailored Blazer and a crisp white Shirt. Don’t be surprised by initial comments from impressed friends and onlookers…by the end of the night they’ll be begging you for the source of your outfit!
