Bernard Lansky has passed away

Bernard Lansky, who along with his brother Guy founded the world famous clothier Lansky Brothers, has passed away. Samuel Lansky bought the now legendary shop for his two sons, Bernard and Guy, at 126 Beale Street in the late forties. Originally a store which sold leftover Army supplies from World War II, Bernard took advantage of the elevating Beale Street music scene and looked to provide clothing for the typical characters of Beale who wanted to dress dapper. After a few years of business, Lansky Bros. already had an impressive list of customers, including Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Duke Ellington, and B.B. King. Their most famous customer was Elvis Presley who became a loyal shopper when he was just a teenager. Lansky's still operates a store inside the Peabody Hotel. His family says Bernard Lansky died peacefully at his home early this morning. He was 85 years old. A public funeral service will be held at Baron Hirsch Synagogue at 11:00 a.m. on Friday.
