Posted by Craig Schroeder on

We do things differently here at CMMP.  We don't just shove a bunch of fabric books in your face.  No.  We curate every single fabric that's in our showrooms imported from the best woolen mills in the world. We wanted to highlight some of our fabric partners and showcase some of our curated picks from their collections.

Our newest lining collaboration is with contemporary artist, Thomas Raggio, who we worked on a series of colorful and geometric linings that can now be added to any CMMP suit or jacket.    Thomas on his art: I contemplate every color, mark, and placement of the line to formulate what I call rhythmic velocities: relationships of color and motion that...

Posted by Craig Schroeder on

The great awakening of 2008 saw men caring about how they looked in clothes. Perhaps it was the advent and growth of social media or the fact that the economy was in the tank and men needed to dress well to get noticed for a new job. Whatever the real cause, it happened - men started to care. And with that caring about appearance menswear peaked with a crescendo of gingham, pocket squares and tailored suiting.
