I spent a month in New York for work in September 2018. I had heard on NPR about a new men’s custom clothing shop called Alton Lane. The gimmick is that you go in, get measured, have a Scotch, and then strip down to your underwear to get 3D scanned. The promise is that you’ll get a really well fitting shirt, suit, etc. So I decided to give them a try to compare them to my current tailor.

When I got home, the shirt was already waiting for me. So I wore it for the first time today to work and am posting some quick thoughts on it here. Overall, the fit is really good and it’s a well made shirt. It was $139… so I think that’s a bit more than my current tailor. Would I use them again? Possibly when I return to New York again next week. What do you think?
