NYC Bespoke Suits

NYC Bespoke Suits tailoring scene is structured differently to the old houses of Europe. Most are based around a designer (often with extensive bespoke experience) rather than a cutter. In a town that has spawned a slew of mTM brands, it is refreshing to find an independent, traditional-style tailor that does a good job at an accessible price point.

Alan David Custom is just such a place. Their storefront in Midtown is just big enough to house a couple desks, a conference table and a cabinet that holds the 100 or so suits hanging on it. The place is drab, the carpet old and muted colors. To the uninitiated – who only look at the bottom line – this place might not seem like it produces some of the best suits in NYC.

But to a client who knows what they want and can afford it, it is heaven. A seasoned Savile Row veteran takes you through the bespoke process in a relaxed and fun way. They will help you decide what fabrics to choose, whether to have double vents or one, notch lapels or peak lapels. Then they take the pattern that they have created from those measurements and hand cut it in a workshop on the other side of the world.

Then they return the suit to their storefront and make some further adjustments so that it fits the client perfectly. The finished product is an excellent, stylish and well made suit that will last a lifetime.
