Going Rogues at Barneys | A Continuous Lean.

Going Rogues at Barneys

Nov 9th, 2008 | Categories: Men's wear, New York City, Style | by Michael Williams

Barneys had their Artisan Day this past Saturday at the Madison Avenue flagship. The event consisted of select designers hand crafting or customizing product throughout the store. The gentleman from Barbour were re-waxing coats live and in-person on the ground floor, which was cool to see. On the Co-Op level, the good people from Rogues Gallery were screen-printing custom tee shirts right in the middle of everything. The custom tee process was simple, grab a soft Rogues shirt in your size and color, then just select your favorite graphic from the menu of designs and place the order. Ever the patriot, I went with a navy blue tee with the blue printed flag. Check out Jay — the Rogues Gallery master craftsman — printing my order in the photos below.

The Finished product.

    NYC has the most tremendous events and stores. I wish Chicago would get their act together and start having some interactive events and fun concepts with their retail. BTW, Jay looks exactly like I picture everyone working at Rouges to look like…awesome.

    It’s a nice reminder that great clothes are often as much about craftsmanship as they are about design. It also reminds me why I miss New York…

    silkscreening, especially on t-shirts, is passe

    That is some very cool shit.

    @HerbyAlcosta – Saw the Bixby stuff when I was in Seattle. Not impressed at all, and the prices are mind-boggling.

    Any photos of the gents performing the Barbour rewaxing work? Did they actually wield doubleboilers and blow-dryers ala the homestyle rewaxing method?

    great concept in performance retail – but what if a splot of ink got onto a pair of $695 jeans? the end of the earth – another sign of the apocalypse!

    they always do a great job, in everythin they produce, and as far as the Burger Kin Guys, if they had cool stuff you may be able to say that, serious have you seen them! wow…
