We pride ourselves on looking beyond fashion to guide our clients in the fashioning of their own bespoken taste and style
We deliver the “real deal”... modern hand-made clothes designed and tailored start-to-finish in New York City for over thirty years. Moreover, our expertise extends to helping our clients apply educated taste in developing their personal style.
Our hand-tailored, made-to-measure clothing looks and feels much like our custom product. Each garment has at least two fittings, and then is finished, hand-buttonholed, and pressed in our NYC workshop. Starting at $1,600 for a blazer, our MTM garments represent an incredible value.
We can help complete any outfit with our selection of neckties, scarves, hosiery, and pocket squares. All accessories are exclusively made for us in Italy and England.
Our women’s garments represent a trajectory to timeless, high-class personal fashion. The hand-tailored shell molds to your body, becoming not only more feminine with time, but ultimately your go-to friend, the first one you pull out of the closet in the morning and the last one you take off at night.

1986: The Alan Flusser Custom Shop debuts. Club elegance, custom clothes, haberdashery galore. The Promise – crafting one-of-a-kind clothing with ten-plus years of fashion longevity. House Style – Savile Row-inspired drape cut with athletic torso and elongating leg line. Town & Country calls it the Best Little Men’s Shop in the World. “Wall Street” movie opens and the world comes looking for Gordon Gekko – pin stripes, peaked lapels, pleats, braces, cuffs and horizontal-striped dress shirts.
The Saks Years
1993 to 2001: Overlooking Rockefeller Center, Christmas tree lighting parties, the bench-made shoe collection, bucking up against the Saks bureaucracy. 1996 Harper Collins publishes Flusser’s third book, Style and The Man.
The 2000’s: Return to private retail at 3 East 48th, more salon than store. Flusser releases his fourth book and the industry’s definitive treatise on men’s style: Dressing the Man. We introduce the new silhouette – “updated drape” with a trimmer torso and leg-line while retaining the easy elegance of soft construction and slightly fuller chest and blades. The introduction of Made-to-Measure and women’s bespoke line Flusser Femme.
2020: Long-time associate Jonathan Sigmon takes over the business as Alan retires. Our focus continues to be on combining the finest taste level with the highest quality tailoring. Beyond making great clothes, we teach which garment cut and colors best complement each individual's unique physique and complexion – and why.
