Emporio Offers First-Ever Fashion Makeover For The Man In Your Life

Interested in winning a new wardrobe for that “can’t tell him anything” husband of yours who’s still wearing baggy pleated trousers? Or your clothes-challenged brother who favors ties that stop just north of his navel? Or your stodgy boss who remains a little too fond of the three-button suits he’s been wearing since the first Bush administration?

Well, you have until Labor Day to compete in the Men’s Fashion Makeover Contest at Emporio, the fine men’s and boys’ store with five locations in the metro New York area (including Teaneck, Brooklyn, and Long Island). Emporio is promising to award three men (18 years of age and over) with much-needed fashion makeovers. Those selected, based on their submission and photo, will receive the advice of Emporio’s men’s fashion consultants and new wardrobes worth $1,000–with their choice of suits, shirts, ties, pants, sweaters, shoes, accessories, etc.–plus haircut and shave, if necessary.

“It’s no secret that a fashion makeover can make a big difference for a man in terms of both his personal and professional life,” said David Rappaport, co-owner of Emporio. “This can mean finding the right suit to compliment your frame with matching shirts, tie patterns and colors, and accessories like pocket squares and lapel flowers. The right look makes you feel great and gives off the right vibes, whether it’s for a job interview or a family celebration. This is something we always strive for with our customers, but in our fashion makeover contest the clothes are on us, in addition to the free advice.”

To enter the contest, visit or send an entry (with nominee’s photo) on why the individual being nominated really needs a new wardrobe to The deadline for entries is September 5, 2017. For more information, call 516-295-5006.
