Custom Suits by Alan David Custom, New York
Pioneers in Pattern-Making
and Measuring Techniques
Since 1926, our old-world custom tailors have created what is quite arguably the finest hand-made custom clothing available anywhere. Our measuring techniques and patternmaking skills are time tested over the course of four generations. At Alan David we manufacture only custom suits, not “made-to-measure” suits. All garments are proudly made in the United States.
The Custom Suit Process at Alan David
The experience begins with a visit to our Midtown Manhattan showroom. A comprehensive measuring process takes place and an individual pattern is created.
Once your initial measurements have been taken, we will help you select the fabrics for your custom made suits. Alan David carries fabrics from mills with long-standing histories of quality and value, including Loro Piana, Scabal, Dormeuil, and Ermenegildo Zegna.
After you’ve made your fabric selection, your measurements and fabrics are delivered to our workshop where our tailors begin to assemble your custom garment. All custom suits are hand-made with a full canvas construction. No glue or other synthetic is ever used to create our custom garments.
Once assembled, the garment is returned to our showroom and is ready for a fitting. At this point our in-house tailors will ensure that your custom suit not only fits you correctly, but also flatters your body. If needed, our tailors will alter the suit and make adjustments to your personal pattern for future orders.
What Matters Most in a Custom Suit
Details that Make a Difference
All of our garments are proudly made in the USA, which allows us to oversee every detail of construction. Our canvas is meticulously sewn into the garment ensuring that the garment will never pucker or bubble. Our shoulder pads blend strength with softness assuring you a nice, clean shoulder line without that heavy padded feel. Our jacket collars are hand-sewn to help assure that the collar fits cleanly at the back of the neck without creasing or bunching.
We will be in communication with you every step of the process. There will be no surprises, we do as we say. We are appreciative of your business and will never take it for granted.
The majority of our first-time clients rarely require a second fitting. Should you require more than two fittings, we will re-cut or refund your garment.
