Classic style and bespoke services mixed with a bit of quirk is what sets P. Johnson apart. From linings and lapels to buttons and monogramming, adding a personal touch to your new suit is encouraged here. As for the workmanship in structure, stitch, fit and finish, trust that you're in good hands with some of the best in the business.

With Brent Wilson, style is guaranteed.
Everything at Assin exudes cool and contemporary in an effortless, understated kind of way. Their suiting options from the world's top designer brands are no different.
