Mr. Start

    Mr. Start may be just one part of the Start fashion monopoly that dominates Rivington Street (there are menswear and womenswear stores close by), but it is the only shop to have launched its own brand. The store’s eponymous label was born back in 2008 at a time when all “Ludlow” meant was a street in Manhattan. (Yes, that was a J.Crew reference). Catering to a burgeoning menswear market, owner Phillip Start created made-to-measure and off-the-peg suits and shirts that mixed Savile Row tradition with the creativity of the store’s Shoreditch location. Like the balance between classic and contemporary in the tailoring, the store itself is a mix between Mayfair members’ club and hip menswear boutique. Spread across two floors you will find footwear, ties, handkerchiefs, shirts, leather goods and, of course, suits. Cut from a variety of English and Italian fabrics, the slim silhouette of the Mr. Start Rivington comes in a range of colours and textures. The popularity of the suits can be measured by its stockists, which include Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. However, for the full Mr. Start members’ club experience, head straight to the Rivington Street source.Show lessRead more
