The World's Finest Furnishings
Some of the world's finest custom shirts come from a well-known
but rather obscurely-sited master shirtmaker, Kabbaz-Kelly &
"I have a different philosophy than most. A truly bespoke - or 'custom' - shirt is exactly what my client wants it to be. It isn't a 'house style' or a disparate assemblage of shirt pattern pieces. Instead, it is the client's own individual pattern draughted completely from scratch ... and fitted until absolutely correct", says Alexander Kabbaz.
Some thirty years and a number of awards later Kabbaz, whose shirts range upwards of $1000, has shuttered the Madison Avenue atelier and moved his studios home to Artists' Woods, his family estate in East Hampton.
Alexander Kabbaz and Joelle Kelly are also the top online
retailers of the world's finest luxury furnishings and outerwear
featuring top brands like the incomparable Zimmerli of Switzerland, Italy's famous Marcoliani socks, and Scotland's luxurious Begg of Ayr cashmere scarves.
To round out their offerings, the couple are now encouraging the work of a few small, top calibre European artisans hand-making neckties, silk pocket squares, lush pure cashmere sweaters, lambskin gloves, and beautiful scarves.

"I still visit with clients every Wednesday at the Regency on Park Avenue", he comments,
"but I find my 'creative juices' flow more readily around white sand
beaches and groves of cedar trees than amongst honking horns and smog.
"We've always considered our work to be a mix of art and science. Being ensconced here in the environs of our art school seems rather fitting ... no pun intended!"
"We've been stocking Zimmerli, Begg, luxury socks, ties, and
many other of the finest European furnishings for our shirt
clients for more than a quarter century. The transition to online
retailing - while maintaining the customer service for which we
are known - has been an interesting challenge, but a welcome
one", observes Alexander. "I find that if we can just get the
online clients to phone us up or e-mail when they have
questions, providing excellent service is easy when one is
intimately knowledgeable about the products. "And after decades of offering furnishings & accessories advice, we
darn well better know our stuff!"
