Martin Greenfield Interview For Robb Report Australia

Before I departed on my trip to see the silk mills in May I was given a green light to write two feature articles for Robb Report in Australia by its editor, Michael Stahl. The two articles, one which follows an Australian bale of wool from the time it reaches Italy until it becomes fabric for a suit; will be followed by the second which covers Martin Greenfield, the celebrated New York tailor.

Greenfield, a holocaust survivor, was there in their Williamsburg factory when I went to visit. At 88 years of age he had the good looks and charisma of an Old World movie star and he seemed to be the personification of Viktor Frankl's 'logotherapy' - that Greenfield had found purpose and meaning in his life by creating suits with intrinsic value which had kept tailors, retailers, bespoke customers and costume designers coming back again and again for their services and attention to detail.

The article will appear later this year.
