A man’s journey in New York City can mean many things. If it’s fashion and style, then an appointment to the Michael Reslan Atelier is a must. For the world traveler, many men of leadership find their way to Reslan’s in New York City. This is not a just come when you like retail men’s store – this is a destination that requires an appointment. From the moment you enter Reslan’s space, your journey in style and culture unwinds.
Reslan, who was one of the key reasons Brioni America succeeded, has a deep understanding for what Men’s high fashion requires. Presidents from companies to countries make a pilgrimage to the space – a historic space in Fashion as it once was the personal residence of Elizabeth Arden. On the 15th floor above 5th Avenue, Reslan offers exquisite fabrics for all seasons. As he hands you a drink of your liking, he learns what fit’s your personality. As he likes to say, “It’s about the journey…enjoy the ride.” At his level, each seam has a reason like every proud detail of the space that hosts his shirts, ties, suits, leather goods and the formal touches that beckon style.
After the fitting, and if time, Michael might share insights from his balcony. As he explained to me, “this is the Grand Canyon of New York City.” Developers, including the likes of Donald Trump, have even pointed out that the historic buildings opposite the balcony ensure that nothing will ever be built to obstruct the view. It’s easy to see – look to the West and observe the Museum of Modern Art and to the North, just beyond the University Club, The Peninsula and St. Regis Hotels, rests the southern tip of Central Park. When you demand the best, you will surely treat yourself to the pairings found at the Michael Reslan Atelier.
