a rich history
Since hanging out his custom shingle over thirty years ago, author and designer Alan Flusser has been widely acclaimed as one of the world’s preeminent authorities on classic men’s style. His bestselling books continue to illuminate generations of men seeking the promise of “permanent fashion.”
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.” Random House publishes Flusser’s second book Clothes and the Man.
1987: “Wall Street” 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.
2002 to 2010: Return to private retail at 3 East 48th, more salon than store. 2002, Harper Collins publishes the industry’s definitive treatise on men’s style: Flusser’s fourth book Dressing the Man. 2008, the new silhouette - a high-strung, trimmer touch-fit without tightness version of the Flusser house style.
2010 to Current: Alan Flusser returns as central figure. Continuing the assurance of combining the finest taste level with the highest quality tailoring. The introduction of the new Made-to-Measure collection, offering superb fit and the same level of service at half the cost of custom. Besting the Promise - teaching which suit cut and colors, collar scale and tie knot, best each man’s unique physique and complexion - and why.
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 in the Savile Row tradition. Moreover, we like to think that our expertise extends to helping our clients apply educated taste in navigating fashion’s style-challenged landscape.
Our essentially hand-tailored, made-to-measure clothing looks and feels much like our bespoke product. Each garment has a final fitting, and then is finished, hand-buttonholed, and pressed in our bespoke workshop. At half the cost of our custom clothes, our MTM garments represent a legitimate value as well as a long-term investment.

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.
