Tucked away on 48th Street is one of my favorite stops in Manhattan, Alan Flusser Custom. Flusser was resident that day, dressed in the highly personal fashion that's been his signature the past few years. His look combined worn jeans, a checked shirt, tartan necktie and an Austrian loden style jacket.
The highlight of the collection for me was a raincoat. Held in the photo by the store's Mark Rykken, the Mackintosh is the original waterproof, named after its Scottish inventor Charles Macintosh. First sold in 1824 and made out of rubberized fabric, the Flusser version is available in three colors including a very stylish banana yellow. It can be made to order, with a choice of corduroy collars and tartan wool linings for $1,395.
Oddly, the company and the coat are spelled with a k, but the inventor's name does not have one. Nonetheless, it's a very stylish Mac.
