New this season to MRket’s Vanguards Gallery is New York-based luxury tailored clothing brand Ralph Behk. Expertly sewn by Martin Greenfield, in Brooklyn, New York, the brand delivers classic suitings with bold details and fabrics. Made with Italian and English textiles, Behk’s suits, which retail from $2750 to $4000, evoke confidence in its construction and detail.
“My collection is very classic but it has an edge to it,” says Raphael Behk, president and CEO of his eponymous line. “When designing the collection I wanted it to me something guys haven’t seen before, something that isn’t readily available. The styling is really timeless and I want it to be something a customer can always go back to, no matter the time period. I wanted the collection to stand out: wider lapels, double breasted jackets, patch pockets, and bold patterns. All of my suits have some texture to them.”
While currently only available online, Behk is seeking to expand his footprint in the fine men’s specialty and department stores across the country. He notes that he also offers a made to measure service that can turn around suits to the customer in five to six weeks.
So what can you expect to see next week from Behk at MRket? “This season I’m infusing my signature style into the collection for a fun and elegant flair,” says Behk. “Expect to see linens, cottons and silks with great color and detail.”
