Martin Greenfield (born Maxmilian Grünfeld; August 9, 1928 – March 20, 2024) was an American master tailor, based in Brooklyn, New York, specializing in men's suits. He was described as the best men's tailor in the United States.[1] His list of clients included six U.S. Presidents, as well as other notable politicians and celebrities. His company, Martin Greenfield Clothiers, also has a white-label business, fashioning men's suits for clothing lines DKNY and Rag & Bone, and the television show Boardwalk Empire.[2]
