Alan David Custom, makers of custom suits in New York City, shares news on a recently purchased factory in Long Island City, N.Y., which is now open for operations and is handling all the company's handmade suits.
Online PR News – 08-April-2013 – New York, NY – New York City custom suit manufacturer, Alan David Custom, has announced the purchase of a new factory in Long Island City, N.Y., now completely operational and able to create each handmade suit. The 15,000 square foot factory allows for all of their custom made suits to be made in a local workshop. With the addition of this enhanced production capability, Alan David Custom is in a unique position to offer a unique level of attention to each client served and each suit created.
Before the purchase of the workshop, Alan David Custom utilized a factory that was located in Canada. The setup worked well for many years, but having a local factory so close to the NYC clothier's home office in Manhattan offers significant advantages and manufacturing options for their mens custom suits. One of the biggest of these is in being able to use basted fittings during the creation of each custom suit. A basted fitting is one that uses a temporary seam that will allow for changes and further refinements to be made as the suit is being tailored.
"No tailored clothing that we create at Alan David Custom is ever outsourced. Now, everything is made in our New York City facilities," Alan Horowitz, owner of Alan David Custom, recently said. "Owning our factory makes it possible for us to better control costs, maintain our competitive prices and to use the finest custom tailoring techniques to ensure the best fit and highest quality suit of clothing for every client we serve."
Alan David Custom never creates ready-to-wear or made-to-measure suits. The process for creating custom made clothing always starts with careful attention to a unique pattern that is created solely for that client. "Our new facility in Long Island City assists greatly in helping make sure that each suit that comes from Alan David Custom is crafted to the highest quality and standards," Mr. Horowitz said.
As owner of a family business that dates back to 1926, Mr. Horowitz follows in the footsteps of his grandfather, Moe Ginsburg, who was an icon in the retail apparel industry of New York City for several years. After working in his grandfather's stores for many years during school vacations and summers, Alan was able to learn every facet of the clothing industry. In 1992, Alan joined his family's business fulltime and has helped to cultivate a strong reputation in the region for high quality tailoring of men's clothing and suits. The immense factory in LIC is a strong example of the family's dedication for offering only the best values in custom tailored men's clothing.
