Upscale menswear is undergoing a renaissance. And that is good news for Sam Fayed the co-founder and designer of NYC-based menswear brand Bespoken. Fayed recently purchased a Soho condo for $2.1 million, according to public records.

The 1,100-square-foot loft at 140 Sullivan Street features original wood and steel beams and wide plank cherry floors. The kitchen was renovated around a restored 1950’s Magic Chef stove, according to the listing.

Fayed and his older brother Liam founded the men’s clothing company in London, before moving the brand to NYC, where the operate a store on East 57th Street.

Fayed is the son of Savile Row Society owner Ali Al-Fayed, and grandson of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed — who owns 75 Rockefeller Plaza.

His cousin Dodi Fayed was killed alongside Princess Diana in a 1997 car accident in Paris.
