Announces Plans to Launch Bespoke-Inspired Collection This Fall

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Michael Andrews, New York’s premier bespoke clothier, today announced it
has appointed Charles Dean Creative Director, as part of its strategic
plans for expansion. In this newly created position, Mr. Dean will
oversee the design direction for the Company’s core bespoke business as
well as the launch of its first Collection, scheduled to debut in
September.

“I have known Charles for years and respect his talent for combining the
spirit and sensibility of past eras with bold design elements tailored
for today’s sophisticated, modern man,” said Michael Andrews, the
company’s founder and CEO. “As we prepare for a significant expansion of
the brand, I am confident he brings the right creative vision and design
aesthetic that builds upon our bespoke tradition.”

Born from bespoke and inspired by timeless elegance, the Collection will
feature the same hand-tailored, bench-made construction for which the
bespoke brand is known. Available exclusively through the company’s
website, the Collection will include suits, shirts, separates,
formalwear, overcoats and accessories for discerning customers who may
be unable to visit the brand’s New York showroom. Garments in the
Collection will be available on a made-to-order basis in over 100 sizes
utilizing proprietary patterns that have been developed through the
company’s years of bespoke expertise.

“I am thrilled to be working with Michael Andrews to expand the brand by
making its world-class handmade clothing accessible on a whole new
level,” said Mr. Dean. “The Collection, at its foundation, is an
expression of true luxury and elegance consistent with the company’s
bespoke heritage – a reflection of what we think men should be wearing
today.”

Mr. Dean began his career at Ralph Lauren before launching an eponymous
label, which was produced by Michael Andrews. He received his B.A. in
Economics from Dartmouth College.
