10 years ago, a movement behind the window of a men's tailor shop caught my attention on my way to work. through the glass I saw a moving silhouette that was so strong, so timeless, I instinctively walked in. That is when I met Matthew Davignon. His double breasted black suit was like no other and the ease in which he was supporting it was uncommon, to say the least. I remember saying to myself "he just might be the best dressed man in the city,( if not of the past three decades) ". When I later found that the sartorial "Tour de force" he was wearing was his creation, I knew then and now we had to work together. This collaboration led me to discover his exceptional craftsmanship, his profound knowledge of tailoring, but most of all, his bold and uncompromising vision of what style and elegance is, was and should be.

In a world saturated with the average and mundane, The art resides in the mastery of making things incredible and having the ability of surpassing them. Matthew is a true master at guiding you in the adventure of realizing your Sartorial image. In my case our relationship has begun 12 years ago when I was concluding my graduate degree and we immediately bounded over conversations on menswear and the etiquette that this sartorial world requires. even now, with my position this voyage with Matthew continues....

I've known Matthew since i was an editor at EnRoute magazine. He was initially my husband's sartorial advisor advancing his wardrobe and counseling him in made-to-measure. I was impressed immensely from the very beginning with Matthew's knowledge and passion of all things sartorial. He later became my collaborator when I wrote articles on men's suiting. He is still today my go-to when I have a question about men's luxury suiting and menswear style.

I cannot express enough what a difference he made in making this something extraordinary and very special to me. he opened my eyes to incredible design possibilities that i would not have even imagine possible. he was a sounding board for all thoughts and ideas and he provided thoughtful feedback and solutions to make the complex decisions easy. the inspiration and guidance he provided truly took the details to the next level. I am overwhelmed with joy at the end result. he's a true partner who's passion and dedication shines through everything he invests himself in as if it's his own. his vision and expertise are undeniably apparent and was an absolute dream to collaborate with.

I was fortunate enough to have met Matthew about 12 years ago. Needless to say - this will be confirmed by anyone who knows him - his style and personality made me feel like we had been friends for years. His fashion sense has not only helped me forge a distinguished image for myself, but has pushed my sartorial boundaries in ways I would have never considered otherwise. Despite him living in another city, I still seek his counsel when looking to make a new "clothing acquisition". I believe there is no greater testament to Matthew's ability than the fact I have introduced him to countless friends over the years and they have all come back with nothing but praise and positive feedback . His passion for his work has made him a success to this day and will continue to drive his success going forward.
