LS Men’s seeks to distinguish itself from the surplus of men’s business-clothing stores in midtown with its zeal for tailoring and narrow focus on the suit (you can pick up a shirt, tie, or overcoat here but no other menswear). After taking an elevator up from a nondescript side-street lobby, customers find themselves in a spare space with a few long racks of suits and a small staff of tailors and salesmen ready with measuring tape. The off-the-rack suits come in most sizes 38S and up, but those who follow the persistent recommendation for a made-to-measure suit can choose pinstripe, gray, or navy in silk, wool, or cotton from brands like Hickey Freeman, Burberry, Southwick, and Copley. A custom-fitted suit starts from the mid three figures and takes two to three days to complete.
