Stefano Bemer celebrates its 40th Anniversary in the month of June 2023. Leading up to this big celebration, Stefano Bemer has been making a lot of moves in the menswear scene, namely acquiring two suit brands: Christopher Korey and Sartoria Vestrucci. There were some hiccups along the way, as there always are in business. The main one was that they were supposed to launch a new website. But those are not always as straightforward as we want them to be. There are always some technical issues. I know as face them daily! Hopefully, that will soon realize itself and be better than ever. I imagine part of the pause had to do with incorporating the two new companies into one site.
There is a lot of stuff going on in the background with all of these mergers and a lot of grand plans to be launched to the world. But when moving multiple chess pieces on the board, it comes with a strategy to not overplay your hand. A small step in the direction is the new Stefano Bemer shop on 27 W 55th St. This used to be the Christopher Korey shop that has now merged with SB and you can now find yourself walking in during working hours without having to make an appointment previously needed with the Stefano Bemer showroom in Soho. It is a quaint yet vibrant little shop. Vibrant in pizazz as the colors are dark, deep, and somewhat mysterious coupled with nice plants and cool photos.
There are a lot of plans in the works for the Stefano Bemer brand. I feel like their 40th Anniversary is the start of a new beginning and if they pull off all that they have planned, they will soon become a major power player not only in the footwear scene but also in the menswear scene. The new shop concepts are more than just about shoes and clothes. They will be an emporium of sorts. A chance to shop for all things in the finer side of men’s indulgences.
Stay tuned as they plan for new shops in major cities, a buyback program on old shoes, and the likes! In the meanwhile, if you find yourself in the midtown area of NYC, make sure to check out the new shop!
