Duncan Quinn’s Bespoke Bus Boutique
February 18, 2013 | by —LIANA LOZADA | Homepage
Duncan Quinn, the Brit who brought bespoke suiting stateside, is rolling his 1966 Bristol Lodekka double-decker bus into the Design district. Arriving today and parking through March 8, Quinn’s bus will double as a boutique, offering shoppers bespoke clothing customizations, expert fittings, and his eponymous brand's latest collection. Part of a coast-to-coast tour dubbed “Cask Chronicles,” the roadtrip will conclude in Los Angeles. However, the vintage bus keeps its roots in Miami: Quinn’s team found the Bristol Lodekka beauty at Miami's iconic Churchill's Pub and then towed it to New York City, where Quinn transformed the interior with new upholstery, wall-to-wall storage, and elegant finishings. Our favorite part? The mobile tailor shop's sexy second floor speakeasy. An exclusive group of lucky invitees will have the chance to head upstairs for after-hour libations courtesy of Zacapa Rum.
