Item Description

For fashionistas and crafters, this is a unique opportunity to see one of Brooklyn's last remaining family-owned clothing factories up front and personal and see what MADE IN BROOKLYN is all about!

Martin Greenfield Clothier's is a Brooklyn manufacturer of hand tailored men's clothing. They hand craft the finest made-to-order as well as made-to-measure suits, tuxedos, sport jackets, slacks and overcoats 100% built by hand in their 1917 Brooklyn Factory. Besides the fact that Brooklyn-made clothes are rare, Martin's story is in itself pretty spectacular.  Martin is a Holocaust survivor who started working at the factory as a floor boy in 1947 worked his way up to VP and ultimately bought the factory from his former employer. Not to mention the fact that he makes suits for Martin Scorcese. 

Watch this video to learn more about Martin's story:

This is a unique opportunity to meet an amazing man and his work! Martin and his two sons have stories aplenty!


Item Special Note

You will coordinate with Todd Greenfield regarding the date and time on which to visit his East Williamsburg factory. The tour will last approximately one hour.
