In the summer of 1998 James and Gwendolyn Jurney founded Seize sur Vingt on Elizabeth Street, in the NoLita (“North of Little Italy”) neighborhood of Manhattan. Following the tradition of the bespoke clothier, they began making finely tailored clothing for men and women, whose fabrics and fit are both youthful and elegant. Their identity is based first on quality in materials and construction, and finally on the particular combination of a slim silhouette, and the best-quality fabrics. The shirt fabrics used are woven in Italy, Switzerland, Portugal and Spain. These are Egyptian cottons, occasionally combined with silk, cashmere, and linen.
