Bespoke Arrogance.

They are very arrogant here and sell shirts (made in Asia) that sell in Asia for $50~$70. Don't be duped by their pretension. Go to a quality shirtmaker that like Seize Sur Vingt.

This place is amazing, my wife first found the place and managed to coax me down to the store recently. The owners are a lot of fun, but also very knowledgeable. We had a great time and I bought more clothes than I have ever done in my life. I'm hooked.

Initially I was impressed at Lord WillyÂ’s. When I picked up my shirts, they didnÂ’t fit me properly, I was quickly dismissed. After wearing a shirt, several of my colleagues agreed, it fit wrong. I brought the shirts back and was told they need additional tailoring only to receive a phone call telling me that the shirts were going to be remade. I was thrilled that I was going to be fitted with new shirts. My new shirts had arrived and I still wasnÂ’t thrilled with the fit. I questioned the loose collar and the blousing at the bottom of the shirt only to be quickly dismissed again. Also I was inquiring about a grey military coat but they were busy so I was rushed out the door, they lost a sale on a coat that I was ready to buy. The new shirts they look OK but not like the bespoke I had made from Turnbull and Asser, these always need a ton of starch a sign of cheap fabric. Beware of the condescending yet patronizing attitude at Lord WillyÂ’s. Maybe itÂ’s because IÂ’m not the typical cocky yuppy customer?

I have shopped at Lord Willys since they have been open and have purchased custom shirts and a bespoke suit. The service has always been friendly and fun. I would be surprised to visualize the scene decribed by nycgq happen in any store let alone this one. Use your own judgement a check out this store, even if you dont buy anything you will at least fall for the adorable dogs....

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
