What is your favorite aspect of the suit closet you made for Limatus Bespoke, X-Managed?
My favorite aspect of The Limatus Makers Closet is the overall look of it, and all of the thoughtful features that we put into the design process together. What makes this a unique piece is that it has integrated lights, smoked acrylic, velvet lining and a wireless charger; but my favorite part is why this closet has all of that. Every feature that we added was part of a conversation between Limatus Bespoke and X-Managed about what would be most functional, essential, cool and most importantly…what would make it Limatus Bespoke.
What was your favorite part about the experience you had with Limatus Bespoke?
My favorite part about the Makers & Creators experience was everyone I got to work with as part of it. The Limatus Bespoke team has been so much fun to collaborate with on the closet build, and with making my custom suit.
The extremely talented Makers & Creators that I had the chance to meet and interact with were passionate about what they do; having the opportunity to see what everyone crafted and what they’ve all done with their businesses encouraged and motivated me in mine. I’ve only been in business for myself for a little over one year, so to be included with this group is humbling and a huge honor.
