A.K. Rikk’s X Ermenegildo Zegna

February 19, 2018

At A.K. Rikk’s, we are passionate about attention to detail, which is why we choose to partner with Ermenegildo Zegna. All of Zegna’s clothes can be made-to-measure, which means they can be built around YOU. A custom wardrobe is “the ultimate expression of your style” and is no longer just reserved for just suiting- your wardrobe can be custom whether its casual, formal, or business.

“Each element of a man’s personal style can be expressed through made to measure. From the button hole to the collar: the look is built around your wishes, your body and your way of dressing. This experience starts with a meeting: between you and your tailor. This is the beginning of a garment built around you.

The made-to-measure journey starts long before your first fitting, though…

“From the farms of Australia to the Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero, northern Italy, the birthplace of the brand. It’s here that each weave of wool is washed in water fresh from the alpine streams. It arrives as pristine fleeces, and leaves as beautifully woven rolls of fabric. Ermenegildo Zegna is a completely vertically integrated company, meaning we can oversee each stage of preparing the fabric: from sheep to shop. For the customer who wants something built around them, this is a dream.”


Want to be a part of this made-to-measure experience? Join us for A.K. Rikks X Ermenegildo Zegna on 2/23/18 and 2/24/18. Get fitted by experts from New York to choose from over 400 exclusive fabrics to find the best weight, style, and finishing for your needs. From outfitting for winter weekends to spring weddings to summer beachwear to your weekend wardrobe, you can customize just about anything! In addition to finding your perfect fit, you can enjoy custom drink and food pairings from Apertivo at your appointment.

Please, join us this Friday and Saturday for an experience built around YOU? Make an appointment with your Personal Stylist below!

Resort Wear Is Here: Part 2- Men’s

January 24, 2018

In case you missed it, last week we talked about women’s resort wear on the blog… don’t worry, guys! We didn’t forget about you. We know you, too, are ready to travel to warmer climates more than ever! A.K. Rikk’s has hundreds of new resort wear arrivals to help you feel and look your best as you escape the snow and gloomy weather. Jordan (Personal Shopper) has picked some potential resort wear looks that we know you will love (modeled on Visual Intern, Parker). Pay close attention to the details in material, texture, and coastal colors- a palate that is essential to the true resort wear man, no matter the location.

The first look pairs a Culturata cotton/silk flower print shirt with an ISAIA navy woven cardigan/blazer. The shirt is so lightweight, almost like a handkerchief- perfect for layering in a variety of climates. It is also quintessential for resort wear- a playful print, full of personality, but still a classic look. A.K. Rikk’s carries this shirt in a variety of patterns that go well with the Rag & Bone stone chino. Throw in the WANT Les Essentials De La Vie bag, and you are more than ready for some time away.

Ready for a lunch date on the coast? Consider this cool mix involving the linen Eleventy sport coat. Layering this over a white t-shirt keeps the vibe casual and fresh (as opposed to a traditional button up). Add an AG lux khaki chino and Common Projects pair of white tennis shoes to complete this stylish take on a classic look. Feeling even more nonchalant, but still want to look good? Consider pairing a navy woven Zegna polo with the Massimo Alba orange cashmere crewneck. This pop of color is fun and statement without trying hard. A pair of SNM jeans (or the khaki chino) would easily complete the look with little fuss.    

Finally, to complete your vacation packing list, grab an ATM lightweight henley. This mixes well with almost every pant, short, or swim trunk in your luggage. To amplify the style, add a J.W. Brine cobalt pant with drawstring. The pant pattern and cut adds luxury, while the drawstring and material keeps it feeling effortless. For extra coverage, add a Saturdays NYC wool/alpaca blend khaki crewneck sweater over your shoulders or around your waist. The Zegna oxford shoe finishes this resort wear look with a pop of blue on a traditional silhouette. 

From head to toe, your style can be not only weather and trip-appropriate, but unique, fashionable, and luxurious at the same time. Not seeing what you need or love? We have hundreds of more options in store! Contact your personal shopper to set up an appointment. He or she will start pulling looks that are customized to you and your trip. 

What to Wear for Labor Day Weekend

August 30, 2017


Here at A.K. Rikk’s we love any reason to find the perfect outfit for the weekend. Labor Day is almost here and is a reminder a break from work is important and so is being ready for “layering” season. To find out what to wear for the holiday weekend and into the fall season we sat down with two of our Personal Shoppers, Hannah Wilson and Alexander Mars, to ask about their Labor Day weekend plans, what they’ll be wearing, and how they will transition items from day-to-night as we leave summer and enter into fall.
