Marc Allen Fine Clothiers will host a holiday shopping event to benefit local non-profit, Child & Family. The shop, which opened its doors for business in April, has quickly become the top shop for exclusive luxury brands and custom-made men’s clothes in Newport.


From November 17th-21st, 25 percent from every sale will be donated to Child & Family as part of the shop’s ongoing commitment to the community. “Child & Family is very near and dear to my heart,” said Marc Streisand, Owner, Marc Allen Fine Clothiers. “As the father of two children, I have a keen interest in trying to make a difference in the lives of local kids, especially those who are underserved.”


Streisand was also co-chair of Au Courant this summer, an annual fashion event to benefit Child & Family. The event promotes the creative talents of the finest designers in the Northeast through a runway show, cocktail party and designer shopping event.


The Marc Allen Newport store will be open Tuesday – Friday from 10:00 am – 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. During the Child & Family Shopping event, the shop will serve specialty drinks and snacks to put shoppers in the holiday spirit.


Marc Allen offers clients a full-range of custom clothing, including hand-made bespoke, made-to-measure formal wear, suits, sport coats, trousers, and shirts. Appointments are offered in-store, in office, or in-home depending on a client’s needs.  Marc Allen also offers tailoring for outside purchases and transportation to the showroom if necessary.
