Sartorial in Spain
Sartorial in Spain
“The barber arrives at four,” said the store clerk in the thick framed eyeglasses popular these days. A cut, a shave, and perhaps a trim: the barber’s chair is one of the many ways you will leave Tenkey with a much improved appearance. The men’s clothing store in Madrid mixes new traditional, classic prep, and rugged individualism into a melange of fitted perfection. Boots, wingtips, loafers, polka dotted socks, tweed jackets, fishermen sweaters, bow ties, slim cotton shirts in all the shades of blue: Tenkey catalogues fashion in a way which almost makes a sartorial bliss seem approachable. The shop is appointed in darker woods and granite, old metal razors are repurposed as coat racks, and a soft honeyed light shines from soft lamps to make the clothes look so appealing. When I asked to take a few photos of the store, the store clerk acquiesced glowingly. “This is the most beautiful store in Madrid,” she said. I dare say that she wasn’t being hyperbolic in her sentiment.
