Online PR News – 13-May-2013 – New York, N.Y. – " New York City custom suit and garment maker, Alan David Custom, announced today that their recently purchased factory in Long Island City, N.Y. is now fully operational and is producing all of their handmade suits. The LIC factory purchased by Alan David Custom is a fully equipped, 15,000 square foot facility that the custom garment maker has transformed into their own local workshop. The addition of the new production facility, along with their posh midtown Manhattan showroom, now makes it possible for Alan David Custom to provide an altogether unique level of attention to every client they serve and every garment that they produce.
Prior to purchasing the new factory workshop, Alan David Custom garments were made in a factory in Canada. While that arrangement worked well for the NYC clothier for many years, having a production facility in such close proximity to their home base in Midtown has a number of important advantages, especially in the process and techniques they use to manufacture their custom-made suits. Perhaps the biggest benefit to Alan David Custom of the new LIC factory is the exceptional capability they now have to do basted fittings on their handmade suits. A basted fitting, which is a custom fit that is temporarily sewn, allows Alan David Custom to change the fit as well as the style of the garment as necessary. This is a distinct advantage that most other manufacturers who lack a local workshop simply cannot offer their clients. Between the excessive amount of time and expense involved in shipping due to the need for repeated adjustments on these basted fittings, nothing but an arms-length workshop will do.
""No tailored clothing that we create at Alan David Custom is ever outsourced. Now, everything is made in our New York City facilities,"" said Alan Horowitz, owner of Alan David Custom. ""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 has always been known for making the finest hand-tailored clothing. They do not manufacture ready-to-wear or made-to-measure garments. Their custom made clothing process begins with a carefully drafted, individual pattern that is created for each individual client. ""Our new facility in Long Island City helps immeasurably in our primary goal of ensuring that every Alan David Custom garment is made to the highest possible standards,"" said Mr. Horowitz.
Mr. Horowitz is now the owner of this family business that dates back to 1926. His grandfather, Moe Ginsburg, was a be-loved icon in the New York City retail apparel industry for decades. Mr. Horowitz worked in his grandfather's stores during winter and summer breaks from school, learning the clothing industry from the ground up. After graduating college and working in the accounting business for a short time, Alan returned to his family roots in the clothing business for good in 1992. Over the years, Alan David Custom has developed a well-deserved reputation for hand-tailoring the highest quality men's garments. Their new production facility in LIC is further evidence of their dedication to their primary goal of exceptional value in custom made men's clothing.
