    I bought a suit here once. A customized suit like they promote. I was told it should last me for 10 years. In actuality it lasted 6-7 years. That is in fact about how long other suits have lasted for me, but every suit I had bought before that one had cost me less than half the price. The more expensive suit is reasonably expected to last longer. They are also VERY highly priced compared to other custom suit makers, of which there are now quite a few more than there used to be. MGC has very much "gone Hollywood" in the last decade or so, providing suits for major movies, tv shows, and Broadway productions. It seems this has driven the hubris there sky high! Their one-time salt-of-the-earth ethos is totally gone. If you decide you do want to invest in a customized suit--and remember an off-the-rack suit tailored to personal specifications can be virtually as good for less money--I would urge you to go elsewhere. President Joe Biden forewent getting his inaugural suit from here, even though multiple previous presidents had. Way to go Joe! ADDENDUM: Over on Yelp a reviewer named Mark G. attacked me over my criticism of this place. Check it out: He shows every sign of having been born on 3rd base and acting like he hit a triple! It is actually apropos that someone like that would be a devoted customer of this business: the current proprietors of the place fit that description as well! Based on Mr. G's coarse, arrogant tone, I expect he works on Wall Street. If he does, then he indeed does have an excellent reason to purchase a customized suit, not just a tailored-to-spec suit. There are essentially two groups of people to whom this is an issue: the aforementioned "Streeters," and people who work in the men's garment industry. If you have a personal or professional interest in impressing people among these groups and being in their good favor, it is definitely worth your while to make the additional investment. Whether it is worth it to buy from MGC is another question. They are certainly among the most expensive clothiers, but whether they are still among the best is much less clear, several years into the founder's retirement. There are surely exceptions, but beyond people in those two professions, you are extremely unlikely to be scrutinized to determine if your suit is customized or not. People care exceedingly little about men's clothes in our society--It's a plain truth, which is why the customized men's suit is an expense that is best carefully considered before undertaking.

    It is definitely a luxury to have a custom made suit. The experience of picking the fabric and lining or deciding on custom stitching was totally fun. Martin, Jay and Todd guide you through the process of building your suit. They have made custom clothes for Presidents Eisenhower, Ford, Clinton and Obama. So if you need a suit for any occasion this is the place to go.

    I have had a decent share of tailoring and fittings, but have to say this place is a true gem in the rocks. After some digging and research (as I don’t choose lightly), I found the presidential suit makers themselves. In the real Brooklyn that’s just what I found. Authentic and old school, ain’t no doubt a rarity. Now this isn’t a walk in retail shop to pick up some suit of a rack and have it sized, this is a place for individuals with style and class. I couldn’t tell you what lifted it over the bar for me, but it began with the little things, like the fresh morning smell of bagels with hard wood floors. Everyone was so genuine and polite, it was a very friendly experience from the beginning. Now coming to the deal. I made an appointment earlier that month, and when I walked in, I knew what was what. Michelle Moenssen is a legend of her own caliber, and that was clear when I saw her incredible style first hand, I knew I was in the right place. For those of you looking, stop. I now know who’s in charge of my suits, and future generations. Well done, hats off to ya chaps. The Kiwi (New Zealander)

    This place is incredibly special. The experience to get a hand crafted tuxedo was awesome. They addressed every detail and feature with care and precision. Being able to chat with Martin while being measured was a one of a kind experience!

    Mr. Greenfield, I have never been to your establishment. I just wanted to say I saw you on PBS. As soon as I saw that smiling face and that 3 piece suit I knew who you were, from interviews I have seen with you. Just wanted to say great job and great documentary! You are an amazing man.
