Things are certainly heating up in Boston's menswear space, right? Further fueling this move toward stylish guys is Suitsupply, the Amsterdam-based outfitter with only a handful of locations in the US. Boston Business Journal reports that the brand is considering a Back Bay location at the former Ciao Bella restaurant space, 240 Newbury. With Boston considered a generally European metropolis in the spectrum of American cities, the sensibility of crafted panache defining Suitsupply's clothing would fit right into our shopping sphere.
Universal Hub points out that the company may be interested in also opening a cafe at the location to help customers relax while snapping up suits. Until word of a confirmed expansion comes along, local men will have to continue perusing the brand's e-store over a cup of home-brewed joe.
