Handmade Custom Tuxedos

Events that require formal clothing easily number among the most significant in our lives. At Alan David we believe that your formal event is too important to allow just anybody to handle your attire. A formal occasion requires that look your best. You need to be assured that your garment will fit perfectly and be ready to wear in a timely manner.

Your custom formalwear experience begins with a visit to our Midtown Manhattan showroom and a meeting with one of our formal wear specialists. Once your needs and preferences have been established, a comprehensive measuring process takes place and an individual pattern for your custom tuxedo,morning suit or dinner jacket is created.

At this stage, we offer the client perhaps the single most distinguishing aspect of a true custom garment – the basted fitting. At this point the fabric has been hand-cut and temporarily stitched together with white thread. Trying on your tuxedo at this point allows both the tailor and customer to perfect the fit and the style of the garment. The fact that your custom made tuxedo is simply 'basted' makes it possible for us to change the style as much or as little as necessary. For example, the client may elect to narrow or widen the shoulders or lapels, make the garment tighter or looser in the armhole, the sleeves or even the thighs. This guarantees the client complete satisfaction with the final fit and appearance of his custom tailored tuxedo.

After the basted-fitting, changes are noted and your formal suit is returned to our factory where it is completed. The fact that we own our own local workshop makes it possible for us to provide an all together unique level of attention to each garment we produce. No tailored clothing we create is ever outsourced. Everything is made in our New York facility. You can be assured that our old-world tailors will create what is very arguably the finest, hand-made custom tuxedos New York has to offer.
