Michael Cogan – Syd Jerome Article

Michael Cogan of Cogan & Power P.C. discusses his long relationship with the men’s clothing store, Syd Jerome and how dressing like a professional is an important aspect of being successful.

In the mid-30s, my law office was literally two doors down from where Syd Jerome used to be. I walked by there every day and was enamored of the window displays. When I finally decided to stop in, I felt at home right away. I was introduced to the entire Shapiro family as well as Mario and Patrick. I got the sense that Syd Jerome was a store of extraordinary quality. I’ve been shopping there 30 years, and that feeling hasn’t changed.

What truly extraordinary about Syd Jerome is that it’s the sole surviving high-end store of its kind. I think that speaks volumes about the quality of Syd Jerome’s merchandise. I still wear clothes I bought there 20 years ago! Their brands are timeless—Armani, Brioni, Ermenegildo Zegna.

As lawyers, we are involved in a beauty contest. Potential clients take our appearance into consideration when making their “purchase.” I want to win that contest, and Syd Jerome gives me the tools I need to win.
