About Harry Sheff

Web Editor Harry Sheff also covers the furnishings and men’s grooming markets for MR Magazine. He is a native of St. Paul, Minnesota and although he has lived in Brooklyn, New York for five years, he still hasn’t lost his quaint Midwestern patois. His first memories of the menswear business come from the long defunct Sims Ltd. in downtown Minneapolis, where his father bought suits in the 1980’s. He is an avid home bartender and collector of men’s colognes, two subjects he blogs about in his spare time.
