Our Well Worn series hands the mic to friends and customers who’ve grown attached to a specific Billy Reid piece, and asks them to share their own Billy Reid story. Usually, it’s a design from a few seasons back, but has remained at the front of their closet, honest testaments to the timeless design, quality and spirit of the loved garment.
Today, good friend and customer to our New Orleans store Abhi Bhansali, co-founder of the multi-unit healthy fast casual brand, City Greens, tells us about growing up in two worlds oceans apart, and how his love for the Fox Tux has nearly severed the relationship with his Bombay tailor. “I haven’t given up on him completely,” Abhi says. “But I also haven't bought a suit from anywhere but BR since I put my first one on. Like a glove.”
