Alabama-based designer Billy Reid brought up all the gorgeous features of his New York store right from the South, reclaiming staircases, medicine cabinets, church peeves and lining the wall with his own family portraits. We paid a trip to the cozy new flagship NY store on Bond Street last week for a lesson in fine Southern tailoring (snake guards and spiffy sport coats!). We were also treated to a special run through the new heirloom collection: beautiful suiting that is individually tailored to fit the wearer quite perfectly. Billy Reid also happens to serve the best Van Winkle bourbon apple cider we have probably ever tasted.
