On The Street........Danny, Lower East Side

Danny is one of the tailors at Duncan Quinn. when I saw how great he looked in his suit I asked who measured him for the fit? he said "I did".

Can't you just imagine him measuring himself for his own suit.

I promise I will soon do another post with Danny to go over his view on how to get measured for a custom suit.

Forget Spider Man. Tape Measure Man has got to be the top superhero of the day!

Of course he gets a perfect suit !!!


Blogger Misterparticular said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Very nice self measuring indeed! I'm not a huge fan of the besom pocket on the diagonal but a chaque'un son goût as they say. The shirt certainly merits attention, the collar fits his little neck perfectly and it's neither too spread nor too pointed. Nice look overall, kind of makes me want to dress up again.


Blogger Stephanie said ... (10:08 AM) : 

I will be looking forward to the insight for custom suits -- could you also get his take on getting measured for a woman's custom suit as well? Thanks!


Blogger Anwei Wendy Wang said ... (10:10 AM) : 

molto Milano!


Blogger Pumpkin Man said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Great shot! What I like most is the graffitti background in contrast to his sharply-tailored suit.
Wish he had his arms down to see the whole silhouette...



Blogger Candid Cool said ... (10:58 AM) : 

He looks like a brilliant tailor! The slim fit is perfection, (as well as everything else about this photograph).


Blogger maestro said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Hello Danny,

I want to see your documentary. Love, your favorite third grade teacher.


Anonymous Suz said ... (11:11 AM) : 

Nice jacket. Trousers, not so much. I see bagged-out knees (time to get the suit pressed? would a better lining help with this? or is it a fit issue, and the knees are so tight that they only look right between when the pants are pressed and the first time he sits down?) and wrinkles that really should hang out of a decent quality wool but clearly haven't. Coming from someone who's supposed to be a custom tailor, that's not good.


Anonymous christopher said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Looking forward to that follow up as well. I have seen great values online but have been fearful due to the fact I'd much rather be physically measured, mainly due to different measurements the tailors I've tried have come up with.

So I'm curious on how one can successfully determine the right fit for a successful online purchase.


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (11:45 AM) : 

THIS man knows how to wear a suit! Superb!

he looks like harry potter


Blogger Butch said ... (12:31 PM) : 

Physician heal thyself? No, actually, this is nice, the extremely slim trousers and the somewhat "hiked-up" jacket--a result of his body position?--aside.

The real merit is in the photo, guy against background.

I have a zoot suit but I know that the thin leg suits are everything now. Shall we launch a national Wear Exactly What You Want week sometime this month? Where we get out of bed, stand up and think about the outfit for today and even if we're a little bit scared, put it on? We can keep each other posted on the progress, like 'mohair skirt and sequinned T shirt: apparently not popular in Manhattan'.

Hey, I'm a young man who makes his own shirts, why don't you take my photo!!!


Anonymous redsonja said ... (1:12 PM) : 

Very sexy lil' man... And I'm in NO WAY sarcastic here! He's got IT. I would follow him anywhere...

Je me rinse l'oeil (like we say in Quebec); Merci!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

that's my nephew! he's real cute... suit or no suit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:37 PM) : 

He pretty much crushed it(looks great) and he has the swagger to add to the look. the only thing that could have been added to the suit is a 1" cuff.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 PM) : 

Love it--and yes, instructions for the ladies would be welcome (pants as well as skirts).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:57 PM) : 

Superb...excellent photo and sharp tailoring

Hi, I've just found your blog today, after seeing your shoot in this month's issue of UK Elle, which I thought was really fresh. I loved the fact that you chose "real" people over models.

Love the site. I particularly like the fact that you shoot interesting people, not just those perceived to be "trendy". The majority of your subjects DON'T look like they are straight out of fashion school. They are genuinely normal people who don't look like they've tried too hard.

I live in Edinburgh, but my sister- in-law lives in Yonkers and we love visiting NY whenever we can. So this site encompasses 3 of my passions perfectly - photography, fashion and New York City.

One suggestion - how about a trip to London, or somewhere else in the UK?


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (3:25 PM) : 

thats quite...
a hard job as it seems to me..
but i can say he did a great job, he looks really handsome


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

Great juxtaposition between the crisp suit and the chaotic graffiti. Nice work on the photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:53 PM) : 

He looks tiny. How cute!


Blogger citizen said ... (4:52 PM) : 

About how tall was he? The slim cut of his suit paired with the darkness of his delicate features makes him look rather imposing. Must be the pose, too. Or maybe it's just the angle of the shot. :) Lovely.


Blogger JChrist said ... (4:54 PM) : 

Soooo...that rules.

I love the fit especially around his ankles


Blogger herringbonekid said ... (5:17 PM) : 

excellent suit.

he has to be irish.


Anonymous pa said ... (5:22 PM) : 

Incredibly sharp. This is the Look, plain and simple. Influenced by mod style, but also timeless.


Blogger Orchid & Wasp said ... (7:21 PM) : 

Yes, please follow up. I'd love to hear more about his background in tailoring, what exactly he does at dq, etc.

Thanks for this!

In the early 1950s when the Italian economy was still depressed my grandmother who was a tailor (which was and is unusual for a woman) made a suit to measure for her nephew who was getting married. My grandmother was in Illinois; her nephew near Florence in Italy. The measurements were sent to Illinois and the finished suit was mailed to Italy. She was very happy to be able to do it and we were all proud of her. I remember wedding photos of a very handsome and well dressed groom.

Man, that setting looks so much like Melbourne, Australia.

Hey Sart, have you seen Quadrophenia? This guy is totally like something out of that movie. You've got to check it out.

Blogger Danielle said ... (9:40 PM) : 

it's not often that a picture will make my heart skip a beat, but this gentleman certainly does.

the background definitely makes the picture; excellent find.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 PM) : 

He looks like a hot/sexy Peter Pan. I agree; Tape Measure Man is the new Superhero. I want him to come to my town and save the day. Or at least my wardrobe.


Anonymous Charles le brusseler said ... (1:21 AM) : 

Toujours top ici !!!
Bonne journée


Blogger Lucy said ... (5:25 AM) : 

I think the quadrophenia reference is on the money - this looks very mod to me. Love it.

Show us the female eqvivalent of Duncan ! Please !
Or have you done that already?
In that case : show her again.
In any case : More of this mood !

i love this picture. i love the suit, danny and the photography. i am so glad i found this blog because it consistently keeps me inspired. thank you so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

Firstly,I think its rediculous to label this man a "tailor". It seems that being able to measure and fill out an CMT order form now magically turns any young Salesman into a "Tailor". I bet he doesnt sew a stitch...
Secondly, Its ubsurd to think that he really measured himself for his Suit. Sartorialist, how does one measure his own "Trouser Front to Floor, Back to floor, Inseam/ Outseam and Rise" without bending over...damaging the integrity of accuracy and posture! Lets call a spade a spade..shall we?

I love Danny.

I was walking in Nolita and saw this guy beautifully dressed of course he was in front of the Duncan Quinn store so im guessing he works there or hes the owner...amazing dressed! beautiful colors...really good taste...!


Blogger Genoveva said ... (7:08 PM) : 

Hot. He looks great, tres chic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:17 PM) : 

Wow, the suit looks beautiful and perfectly fitted on him. Everyone needs a great tailor... how do you find the perfect one?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 PM) : 

It's fetching. The only thing is that the very slim cut of the trousers makes his hips look wide. ANd the angled pocket isn't my thing either, but otherwise, very handsome.


Anonymous high school student said ... (11:00 PM) : 

this might sound incredibly naive, or not, but how does one become a tailor? i've been thinking about this a while, and had no idea whom/where to ask.

he is just plain HOTT!!!! sexy smoldering! more, please.

a VERY edgy Shot

This is one of the all-time best male sartorialist-pictures. The contrast between the grafitti in the background and the beautiful suit and classic style.

duncan quinn makes amazing suits and he wears it very well.. just like how young men should be dressing.

Absolutely fantastic! Danny is very handsome.The suit and shirt are great and fit perfectly. Very good photography--Love it all!

I could learn to love suits if they always looked like this.

We knew you way back when! Who would have known you'd be so famous. The suit is looking good and that background is amazing. If they only knew what a great photographer you are as well!!

He looks absolutely great. Perfectly fitted and very individual at the same time. He carries this off to perfection.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:51 AM) : 

this guy is so blessed tobe able to be knowledgeable about tailoring. I love that his suit fit is perfect and serious in a good way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 AM) : 

This is my favorite shot from your collection, sir.

The formality of his suit contrasts perfectly with the graffiti on the walls behind him.
