Part of what sets Alan David NYC apart from other custom tailors is that at Alan David, they still use a basted fitting to ensure that you get the best possible fit for your custom-made suit or shirt.

A basted fitting occurs after all of the pieces of a suit have been sewn together loosely by hand. This allows you to try it on, and small adjustments can be made for a truly custom fit. Whether your suit needs to be taken in or let out at the shoulders or pants, or if you just want to change the lapels, it can be taken care of during the basted fitting. Once your suit fits perfectly, the whole thing will be sewn together by expert tailors in Alan David NYC’s own New York workshop.

All Alan David custom garments have been made locally in New York and are fitted to your exact measurements. At Alan David NYC, they don’t take premade suits and cut them down to fit. Your suit will be made from a pattern that was constructed out of your measurements and fits only you.
