Male Call: New Stores for Men Open at The Lab and South Coast Plaza
Klein Epstein & Parker and Brioni open in Orange County, providing options for dapper men everywhere.
Klein Epstein & Parker offers made-to-measure fashion for all! Believing that fashion should be by and for the people, rather than by a designer far removed from an individual’s wants and needs, the trio presents an environment, at alternative shopping destination The Lab, where personal creativity meets precision: You make the decisions for fit, style, details and overall look. Choose your Italian fabric, threading, embroidery, buttons and under-collar felt color—for starters. Whether it’s a classic tuxedo or edgy jacket, pant or suit, you walk away with an exceptionally well fitting garment of your own imagining. The team’s own imaginings pair a new-rebel consciousness with an elevated sense of dress. 2930 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, 714.668.9008. kleinepsteinparker.com
Brioni, renowned for its made-in-Italy craftsmanship and sartorial excellence, was founded in Rome in 1945 and has grown into a global luxury lifestyle brand. Specializing in handmade suits, Brioni has dressed countless Hollywood personalities, business leaders and heads of state—and James Bond in the films starring Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. Brioni’s master tailors—some 900 of them, all of whom complete a four-year apprenticeship—are committed to innovation as well as impeccable fit. The brand recently became part of the Kering Group, which includes Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga. Entry-level suits run about $5,000; custom suits start higher and can run up to $48,000.
