Sartorial Excellence Event – Alexander Kabbaz, Host

This weekend, Alexander Kabbaz was the gracious host of the second annual Sartorial Excellence event in Manhattan. Highlighting some of the smaller but no less fantastic modern keepers of the sartorial flame, the event was a chance for Sartorialists to get together and discuss the minutiae of pad stitching, stitches per inch, and who supplies the best double-welt, rainproof house slippers in America. The Q&A with industry experts was quite enjoyable and Bruce Boyer proved he was equally captivating with the spoken or written word.

In the photo above, Alex discusses the finer points of the working buttonhole.

    Am I confusing something here or isn’t he missing the dimple in his tie?

    Oh, I read about this. I should have realized, of coure, that The Sartorialist would be there. I wantd to go, as I am always interested in clothing as a craft. I am so glad there are people keeping that alive. Thanks for the pictures.

    Did Mr. Kabbaz mention where he gets his suits?
