After seven and a half years in business, picking up the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award along the way, The Elder Statesman has finally opened its first brick and mortar store in its hometown of Los Angeles. Founder Greg Chait—recognizable by his full beard and regular rotating stylish eyewear—calls himself an “accidental” designer with roots in the music and entertainment business. It’s this non-traditional background and his very hands-on approach that has catapulted The Elder Statesman into an understated luxury brand that guarantees the finest craftsmanship for all things custom and cashmere.
