4 shopping and style events this week
Brioni master tailor event Those custom suit websites are great and all, but the best fitting suits are the result of being measured by a tailor. Gianni Serpentini, a master tailor for Brioni, stops by the Gold Coast boutique to help you get the best fitting suit of your life. And you don't have to make a purchase right away: Your measurements will be kept on file for future Brioni orders. Just call the store to make an appointment. Brioni. Sept 26 at 10am.
