Kickstarting a Dream One Speakeasy at a Time

Ignacio at Red Rooster in Harlem with Chef Marcus Samuelsson and Thelma Golden of The Studio Museum

Ever since we launched our kickstarter campaign for Sartorial Pairings Ignacio has been the man about town!

Last Wednesday he decided to hit his old stomping ground of Harlem. In case you didn’t know Harlem is not just the birthplace of the jazz age it’s also the birthplace of our own Ignacio Quiles. He’s strayed from the neighborhood over the years to Brooklyn and the Lower East Side, but Harlem remains number one in his heart.

So of course when he decided to take a speakeasy tour of the city to get the word out about Sartorial Pairings he had to hit Ginny’s downstairs from Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant. And to his delight the chef was there. They’ve met before at our pop up in Chelsea Market and at the Manhattan Vintage Show, but this evening was special.

It’s dark and sultry and full of great vibes, great food, and great drinks as you can see in this almost old school photo of Ignacio with Chef Samuelsson and Thelma Golden Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum.

So if you are in NY Ignacio encourages you to stop by Red Rooster – you are sure to have a great time. In the meantime please go to and search for Sartorial Pairings – we have 14 days left to raise about $24,000 – it’s time to kick this campaign into high gear.

Thanks for your help.!!
