LeGrand Leseur Is the Next Big Thing in Men’s Fashion

By producing a Tshirt line in college that sold well and getting the thrill of selling his own designs, he knew his gift was making clothing. By only 23, Le Grand decided to attempt a men’s tailoring business in Philadelphia and by contacting factories with his sketches he soon found one to beautifully produce his bespoke suits.
I found photos of Le Grand on Facebook and he intrigued me. I had to find out who was the man in the photo. He had done something I never before saw the bias colored buttonhole.
“When you design you really have to think what the client really wants. When a client comes to me for a suit we speak about what his life goals are I start sketching. It’s almost like therapy. A music producer will have different goals than an investment broker so why expect them to dress the same.”
This is much like couture for women, and LeGrand really touched me with this quote on “Therapy” as I’ve spent my 50 years in couture giving advise to women in underwear.
LeGrand says “The designs I make are for people to really stand out. I like color and I feel men’s clothes have a huge lack of it.” He also is against “urban street fashion” that has pants sagging lower and lower giving off the wrong impression especially to the younger generation of men.
Watch Out America.
