"Each man is unique" is the motto of Pierre Degand owner and founder of the Brussels based prestigious Maison Degand.
The chore of his mission, man's elegance, is to understand his client's personality fulfill his wishes and translate them into his aspirational lifestyle.
When I met him at his magnificent 1930'building overlooking private courtyard in the high end neighborhood of Ixelles ,Pierre Degand confided me that his service and advice have no limitations and like the expert team that assist James Bond (who only wears Brioni) before a mission, creativity professionalism and passion constantly reign supreme in this universe of elegance up to the tiniest details.
As I walked around attentively escorted by Mr Degand most trusted right hand I am introduced to the Maison several brands offered to its prestigious clientele :
Degand Tailleur ' The real craftsmanship is the rigeur"
The strength and the difference of this brand lies of a choice taken to the extreme that only a few International houses can offer as you can tell by my pictures in this post. Most of it is genuinely exclusive and especially ordered for his European clients who step in requesting for unrivaled tailoring. For the last 30 years an in-house Mater Taylor will still create with devoted enthusiasm old style suits Su misura.
Hafl measure will also be offered in case of specific cuts, morphology of fabric and brands like Brioni and Kiton in 4 to 5 weeks and an replenished inventory of 250 jackets and 600 ready -to -wear suits some of them in the softed cashmere , 15.000 us dollars vicuna and , finest woven fabrics and the rarest silks and cottons.
Interesting to visit a whole reserved smoking room and gifts, a jewelry department, sleepwear and elegant raincoats and the workshop where 40 hours can be spent by craftsman just for a custom tailored jacket..
