"If its elegant understatement you're looking for then this oasis on the upper east side off Park Avenue is where you’ll find it. The prevailing aesthetic here is Hollywood Matinee Idol meets Modern Gentleman. Mixing a respect for tradition with a modern sensibility, Manolo Costa is THE place for tailored clothing for gentlemen who like to look sharp without over-doing it."
"My introduction to Manolo was from the backseat of a black car stopped at a light outside of his shop. From the displays in the window, I could easily see that this was a man of taste, restraint and elegance, all the qualities I need in a tailor. After receiving a few garments from Manolo now, it's not just the fit (which is superb), style and quality of the garments that are outstanding, but what really distinguishes the Manolo Costa experience apart is the advice. He's an adviser that can execute any vision you bring to him, or even take you in directions you didn't imagine."
"Manolo Costa delivers a signature and sensibility that whisper elegance, and sartorial excellence without looking like every other brand out there. You can always tell if a gentleman is wearing Manolo, from 20 paces. It is a lifestyle that you step into off of 65th Street and Manolo is the gatekeeper of that. The showroom is beautifully appointed and one has the feeling of stopping by your favorite private club. While from the street, and for those unfamiliar with the bespoke process it may appear intimidating, the opposite is true. Manolo and his staff are friendly and welcoming and are more than willing to accommodate, or educate every client depending on their unique needs and desires."
"Mr. Costa really gets to know his clients and really works to help you “build” a wardrobe based on your own lifestyle and needs, it’s more like chatting mens’ clothing with a well-informed friend, than a trip to the sartorial dentist office for a painful experience. The fabric selection is extensive, the house cut is sophisticated, elegant and flattering to a multitude of body types and Manolo is a master at manipulating the silhouette to address your specific body type. If you expect the best, and want to look your best beat a path to Manolo Costa."
