Michael Bastian is upping his game and expanding beyond his designer collection and launching a class of suiting with dress shirts and neckwear exclusively at Barneys as soon as next week.
Pricing will be 20% less than his line currently sold at Barneys retailing for $1,495, blazers for $1,150, dress shirts for $265 and ties and bow ties for $165. The clothing is made in Portugal from Italian wool, Italian cotton or cotton-silk blends and have mother-of-pearl buttons and a modified point collar.
Styles include two-button solid navy, charcoal and pin-striped suits, while blazers are sporting plaid with three-buttons. The line is slightly less fitted than the tailored pieces in the Michael Bastian designer collection, making it more appealing to the midwestern man.
