I'll never forget the first time I saw Marcus in the shop. Not just because he was tall, cool, handsome, and had great style; no, it was probably more due to the fact that the guy standing next to him happened to be 6'7" and my favorite pitcher for the New York Yankees, CC Sabathia. And that's how it began...
Over the past couple years, I've had the pleasure of getting to know Marcus a bit, and slowly but surely, the more he hangs out at the shop and the more we get a chance to see him and his clients, the more I realize that he's become one of the family. Marcus is here often, and on any given day, usually more than once a week, he'll stop by to order a couple jeans for LeBron James or Tristan Thompson or Wale (to name a few of his famous clients). Every day I see him standing in the back or sitting on one of our chairs working with Josefina, he always makes me smile. A wonderful guy with great style, a big heart (and glasses), and an even bigger smile. Thanks for all the love, Marcus! -Scott Morrison
What's your style philosophy?
Not to sound cliche but it's all in the details. It's more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail-then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see the whole thing, what is there to imagine?
What's your favorite 3x1 jean and why?
My favorite 3x1 jean is the M5 because it is a slim fit, with a bit of stretch and tapered. The perfect jean for wearing brogues and pretty much any footwear.
What's your favorite place in the world?
I'm not sure if I would limit myself to one specific place. I've traveled the world and every place is a favorite for a different reason but the place that has had the biggest impact in my life is NYC. I was born and raised in NYC and it's energizing spirit and realness is tattooed in my personality.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Ha! I plead the 5th...I don't think whatever it is would be appropriate for the internet. Besides, I have a whole life ahead of me so I'm sure the craziest is yet to come.
What are your words to live by?
"Perfection is our goal, excellence will be tolerated." Words by J. Yahl.
