Holocaust survivor tailors an American success story

Like many men, Martin Greenfield ordered a new suit when his life was about to change: He placed his order just after he was liberated from a concentration camp. In 1945, he left Buchenwald and arrived at a German warehouse, where Allied soldiers let Greenfield pilfer four cuts of English wool. The freed captive carried the fabric to a Prague tailor, who made a suit for Greenfield from two of the cuts, with the other two as payment.

The New York-based tailor has had a hell of a ride since spending primary school years in the Czech Republic and high school years in concentration camps. Now, Greenfield makes suits for everyone from famous athletes to U.S. Presidents.
