Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Owner Alan David Horowitz’s long-standing industry contacts (he worked with his family’s menswear megastore, Moe Ginsburg, until it shuttered in 2002) allow him to purchase fabric at a lower cost and pass the savings down to his clients—a suit valued at $1,900 would cost you $1,250 here. Procrastinators, take note: Since no part of the suitmaking process is outsourced overseas, the turnaround is a lightning-speed two to three weeks. Pair your two-piece ($895–$1,795) with a custom shirt ($100–$250) and monogrammed tie ($125), each available in a panoply of nearly 500 fabrics. The shop also offers suits for boys ($450–$695), women’s custom shirts ($100–$250) and customizable accessories, including wallets ($325), leather messenger bags and briefcases ($795 each).
