Custom Made Suits Made in New York

Our Mission Statement: To provide the highest quality men's suits that fit perfectly the very first time.

Since 1926, our old-world tailors have created what is quite arguably the finest hand-made custom clothing available anywhere. We aspire to be the best suit store in New York. At Alan David, four generations of experience are behind every measurement we take and every pattern we create. Our attention to detail ensures a perfect fit for every custom tailored suit we make.

The experience begins with a visit to our Midtown Manhattan showroom. A comprehensive measuring process takes place and an individual pattern is created for each client. No two patterns are the same.

Once your initial measurements have been taken, we’ll help you select the fabrics for your tailor made suits. We are pleased to present a wide assortment of the finest cloths available from the world's best luxury mills, including Loro Piana, Scabal, Holland & Sherry, Dormeuil, and Ermeneglido Zegna.

After you’ve made your fabric selection, your measurements and fabrics are delivered to our workshop where our tailors begin to craft your individual paper pattern. All custom tailored suits are hand-made with a full canvas construction. No glue or other synthetic is ever used to create our fine men's suits.

At this stage, we offer perhaps the single-most important aspect of a true custom garment – the basted fitting. This is the step that dramatically sets us apart from all others. White thread is used to temporarily stitch together the hand-cut fabric. The tailor will then have the customer try on the garment in order to assess its fit and style; the fact that the suit is simply "basted" makes it possible for us to change the fit as much or as little as necessary. For example, the client may elect to make the garment slimmer or fuller, or to narrow or widen the shoulders. He may also choose to adjust the fit of the trousers by raising or lowering the rise or tapering the thigh or knee areas.

After the basted-fitting, adjustments are noted and your garment is returned to our factory where your bespoke suit is completed. The fact that we own our local workshop makes it possible for us to provide an altogether unique level of attention to each garment we produce. No tailored clothing we create is ever outsourced. Everything is made in our New York City facility.
