Profile

This unadorned, light-filled showroom sits high above the traffic on 35th Street. Michael Spitzer, who took over the store from Gluck in 1992, has taken the measurements of statesmen, movie stars, and household names—Larry King, Dan Rather, and Henry Kissinger among them—and Martin Scorsese has his own special-label shirts made here with his name sewn into the collars. Hand-made on site, the shirts offer the kind of luxury that comes from superior workmanship and high-quality fabric: The store uses only 2-ply cloth—meaning each thread is doubled over for exceptional durability—and where most shirtmakers settle for an 80 thread count, Arthur Gluck insists on 100 to 180. The result is a 100-percent cotton shirt that feels as smooth as silk. Spitzer will tell you that fit is most important, but there are style considerations as well, regarding collar, cuff, fabric, pocket, and monogram. For what you'll pay, you won’t want to send these shirts to any old cleaner; the store offers clients its own laundry service. And for those whose pockets aren’t quite deep enough to afford a private fitting, the company has a website on which customers can design a slightly less expensive shirt to his or her own specifications.
