Profile

On the second floor of a multiuse office building, fourth generation tailor Alan David Horowitz runs this small enterprise devoted to men’s quality custom suits. The modest, living-room-sized showroom has a dark wood table set with fabric swatches and cloth catalogues. Though shirts, ties, and boys’ suits are available, Horowitz’s primary business is handmade custom suits. Styles range from business mainstays of navy, gray, and black solids and pinstripes to slightly more adventurous tan and brown woolen plaids. The suits come in English or Italian wools (from mills like Loro Piana and Ermenegildo Zegna) and Horowitz zealously guards against seam bunching, shininess, and other flaws. Accordingly, these suits are quite an investment, but Horowitz offers lifetime alterations, and keeps measurements on file so great fits can be recreated.
