(09/21/10) BUSHWICK - A Brooklyn tailor has dressed some rather famous men during the course of his career.

Martin Greenfield, 83, never shows up to work wearing less than his best. He has the same attitude when he dresses his famous customers, which have included Michael Jackson and Patrick Ewing. Greenfield also tailored former President Bill Clinton's suits in his bedroom at the White House.

Martin Greenfield Clothiers' old-fashioned style was a plus when HBO came calling. It made 250 suits for characters on "Boardwalk Empire," HBO?s new series set in the 1920s.

Greenfield says he may also be welcoming President Barack Obama as a new customer.
