A self proclaimed “recovering corporate attorney,” Michael donned a suit and tie to a law firm every day for nearly eight years. When he could not find off-the-rack suits cut to his liking, he began having his clothes custom made. After trying over a dozen tailors without finding exactly what he wanted, he decided to open his own tailor shop.
Since doing his homework had become second nature – Michael received his undergraduate degree from Georgia Tech, where he was a prestigious President’s Scholar, and his JD/MBA from Northwestern Law School and the Kellogg School of Management – he began taking tailoring classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology to understand professional tailoring techniques first-hand.
In 2006, Michael Andrews Bespoke was launched with the vision of crafting high-end yet approachable menswear with a modern flare. Since then, Michael Andrews has become New York’s premier custom clothier and has been named to “Best of” lists by New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Bloomberg Markets, AM New York and JW Marriott Magazine.
Andrew helped with the inception and launch of Michael Andrews Bespoke in 2006, and has remained an integral part of the continued development of the organization. Today, he acts as a senior advisor to Michael and the team.
When Andrew is not in NYC, he runs the Atlanta office of Daugherty Business Solutions with P&L responsibilities for a team of over 120 consultants. Andrew received his B.B.A. in Management Information Science and Finance from the University of Georgia and shoots a mean game of pool.
Cory is a proud graduate of Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL where he majored in “playing baseball.” After graduating in 2008 with degrees in Communications and Athletic Administration, it was a passion for theater that led him to Chicago, where he spent the next few years working and training as an actor at the legendary Second City Theater. After realizing he wasn’t going to find fame and fortune in the Midwest, Cory left Chicago for New York City, where he found MAB instead. Cory enjoys red meat, red wine, black coffee, and the style of Serge Gainsbourg.
Casey attended West Point and was a member of the academy’s hockey team before serving five years in the military. Casey spent as much time as possible (without going AWOL) during college hanging out in downtown Manhattan – and was very happy to return after his tour of duty. After serving as one of MAB’s best dressed, he joined the team full-time. He brings with him an interesting perspective on fashion, the world, and taxidermy.
