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.
Very, very cool stuff.

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.
Average guy goes to arrogant bespoke shop

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....
