You may not have realized it, but just north of Madison Square park we have possibly the longest running custom tailor still making clothing right here in New York City. Founded in 1913, St. Laurie Merchant Tailors (22 West 32nd; 212-643-1916) is now in its fourth generation of making custom suits and shirts. They buy their fabrics right from the mills and create one of a kind clothing (mostly by hand) that will fit perfectly (or they keep adjusting it until it does), unlike what you are going to get off the rack or from machine made clothing.

Because of their quality workmanship, St Laurie make suits for leading actors in film and theater, including Leonardo DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road, the Jersey Boys, and others such as Mathew Broderick, James Spader, and more recently, Al Pacino (photo left) for his upcoming role in the Merchant of Venice at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park starting June 12th.

Prices are quite reasonable considering you are getting a custom suit, and largely depend on the fabric you select. It’s definitely worth calling them to set up an appointment to learn more (212.643.1916). People will notice the fit of your suits and shirts. Pass it on to your boyfriends and husbands!
