Astor & Black, a name synonymous with luxury custom menswear, is officially operational again after being purchased from chapter 7 bankruptcy. With almost 9 years of active business, the once thriving brand closed its doors last August, one year after its corporate relocation to Pembroke Pines, FL. Joe Chay, Founder and CEO of the up-and-coming custom men’s brand Bello Verde, purchased the company on January 29th, 2014 with hopes of reviving the brand as a sister label. A former employee of Astor & Black, Chay, sought his own custom suiting endeavors in October of 2012 with his new brand, Bello Verde.
After the increasing success of his startup, Chay made the strategic and timely move of buying Astor & Black in hopes of maintaining the momentum and dedicated followers of the freshly disassembled brand. “I haven’t officially decided the future role that Astor & Black will play in my company,” Chay states, “but until that concept materializes, I want former clients to realize that they can still get the A&B brand they have come to know and love.”
Bello Verde, along with Astor & Black, has always focused on delivering the perfect custom fit through its 30-Point Fit Profile. With hundreds of fabrics to choose from and multiple styling options, clients can create a look that is as individual as they are. “The bottom line is, we want all of our customers, new and old, to know that their satisfaction is our top priority. Because of the large role I played in the foundation of Astor & Black, I have no doubt that clients of both brands will continue to be pleased with their product,” says Chay.
About Bello Verde- With his deep passion for all the finer things, Joe Chay used his well-seasoned knowledge of the custom clothing industry to establish his own custom menswear line, Bello Verde, in October of 2012. Retail offerings include a wide array of custom clothing options as well as a selection of ready-to-wear and accessories. With big name clients and a long list of professional athletes on the roster, including many of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, Bello Verde hopes to continue its recognition and growth as a major luxury brand.
