Great Place for Made to Measure Suits Blazers – Ordered a made-to-measure Southwick blazer from L.S. Men's Clothing and had a great experience for two reasons.
1. Cost--They got me this jacket for SIGNIFICANTLY less than what other shops quoted me for Southwick made-to-measure. They even added working buttonholes on the sleeves for a fraction of what I have seen other places ask for.
2. Customer Service/Experience--Izzy has apparently been in this business a LONG time. Was a little unsure on a couple details/aspects of fit. Took Izzy's advice and the blazer came out perfect--couldn't be happier.
great place for well priced fashionable suits – I recently got hired for a new job after having lost mine about a year ago. I decided to upgrade my look and after hearing about LS Mens Clothing from many of my old co-workers I figured why not give it a shot. I must say I was pleased with the service and promptness of delivery. Not only was I able to get measured and fit from the owner of the store, someone who has many years experience in the industry, he sat with me and helped me decide which patterns best fit my build. I was impressed that Izzy reccomended I start with 1 suit a few shirt and 1 sport jacket, to see how I liked the fit before ordering more (most owners would be pushy and just want to sell the most they can).
When the suits came in I was very pleased and to say the least order a whole bunch more. I will definitely be going back and will be recommending it to my friends and family.
The Best Clothing Value in NYC – LS Mens Clothes has the best clothing values in New York City. Its humble premises, on the third floor of a nondescript office building, belie the clothing riches inside.
I have been a customer for about 20 years. I have bought both ready to wear and custom. Its made to measure offerings are strong in that four manufacturers are offered: H. Freeman of Philadelphia, Southwick, Coppley, and a local workshop.
H. Freeman and the local workshop make a suit which is superior to Hickey Freeman. I have received more compliments on my LS suits than some of my other suits (including those made on the fabled Savile Row) which have cost two to four times as much.
LS is a a significant customer of H. Freeman. It has been able to get H. Freeman to offer a new model based on LS's suggestions.
You can personalize the styling and detailing of your suit, such as working sleeve buttonholes, linings, ticket pockets, and pick stitching.
On the made to measure side the cloth selection is huge. You can order from the manufacturers' swatch collections or from the sample books of Holland & Sherry, Loro Piana, Barberis, and Gladson.
LS also has a wonderful pantsmaker who can copy your favorite pants. He makes a handmade trouser with handsewing and pick stitching. In fact, he makes my suit trousers. I have also had LS's in-house tailor make the vest, and he has done an excellent job.
It also has good things in ready to wear. You have to do a little searching among the overstocks from H. Freeman, Hickey Freeman, and Burberry. I started as a ready to wear customer. I still buy an occasional raincoat and overcoat.
LS has the lowest prices in town on made to measure shirts from Individualized Shirts which makes both a standard shirt and more handmade shirt under the y'Pres label.
Finally, Izzy is a lovely, honest, and reputable person. It is a family business which his mother-in-law started. She is the LS in the name.
Exceptional Quality at Exceptional Value – I was introduced to LS in 1994 when I was a second-year law student at NYU. Having been lured in the past by "discount designer" clothing sales and "designer warehouses" only to discover poor quality garments priced as they should have been, I was skeptical when I made my first trip to LS. LS, however, is the real deal. The same Hickey Freeman suits one finds at Nordstrom and other retailers are offered here for half the price and, sometimes, less. Hickey Freeman only makes two or three suit models, year in, year out. There is really no such thing as last year's leftovers in this upscale brand. And as if the selection of Hickey Freeman weren't enough, LS also accumulates thousands of yards of the finest suit fabrics and makes them available for the most reasonably priced custom suits in the country. The outside tailors who make the custom suits are the very same ones used by some of the most expensive men's shops in the City. What this means is that one can buy the exact same 100% custom suit from LS for around $1,000 that can be found elsewhere for $3,000-$4,500....same fabric, same tailor shop...exactly the same suit. So, whether you want an off-the-rack Hickey Freeman suit for half price or a custom suit for an even smaller fraction of its ususal price, LS is a must visit. The number of high powered executives and profesionals who know the LS secret is staggering. I visit LS a couple of times a year and almost never fail to see at least one senior partner from a top five Am Law 100 law firm being fitted for a suit. The smartest New York money shops at LS -- shouldn't you? The selection is terrific, the service is second to none and the prices can't be beaten. If LS were a public company, I'd be a stockholder.
excellent selection; knowledgable people; courteous and patient; honest to a faault. – knowledgeable, patient, courteous, honest, fine selection; very good prices; convenient, up-to date,
Editorial Review – LS Men's Clothing offers classic suits, sports jackets,slacks, rainwear, overcoats and tuxedos from trendy designers. Also offering custom made clothing.
Nicest Tailored Suits at the Best Value and Best Customer Service – I'm not one to write reviews, but where ever I go I get complimented on my suits and people ask where I get my suits, so I figured I'll just let everyone know.
My father in law recommended that I go to LS Mens once for a custom made suit, and I was a bit sceptical of going up to get suits the 3rd floor of some building when I have always gone to Saks and Bergdorf for Zegna, Brioni, etc... However, all my doubts were quickly put to rest. I was greeted by Izzy who gave me all the time in the world to look through his fabrics. (There was such a fantastic selection, it took a while.) There was a wide selection of Loro Piana, Zegna, Hicky Freeman, and more. He helped me choose one that would fit its purpose and after I was measured I told him the specification (double vent, functional buttons, etc..) and I even got to pick out my own lining - which is always a conversation starter. I actually wanted to get 2 suits but he told me first see how I like this one and then come back - the exact opposit from having a commisioned sales person shove everything on you! I was also shocked to see that the prices were much better than any place else I've been to.
I came back to pick up the suit and wore the suit the next day to work, and then it started. The questions kept on coming. Where did you get your suit? What, you got that Zegna Super 150 for how much? You look great! I now sit before you and tell you that you also can look as good as I do.
Extraordinary – A few years back I had lost weight. My suits which had fit me till then were all to big. Being that I had to wear a suit to work every day, I was quite desperate. A friend suggested that I go to Izzy at LS, saying that he had a positive experience. I pushed him off by saying that I would instead go try to get something at saks,neiman,bergdoff, rothmans, and brooks brothers. I did just that, and what occured was very dissapointing. Every place the salespeople were obnoxious and "up your back". At the department stores after I had said that i only planned to spend a little bit over 1000, i was ignored. the prices and quality were terrible. you were paying for the name of the designer and for nothing else. Their custom departement didn't really have anything under 1600. At rothmans and brooks brothers the service was okay, but I felt that I was being pushed by the salespeople and that it was a overpriced for such quality. Finally I went to Izzy at Ls. Right away I felt the family feel of the place. There wasn't the marble... everywhere like they had in the department stores. But it was better like that. Izzy gave me personal attention and helped me get a ready made Hickey which was priced at 500+ cheaper than it wold have been at any of the departement store.He was not pushy at all but actually very pleasant. His in house tailors also did an amazing job to alter the suit to my needs. I have contined going to Izzy but now I have gone to his custom lines. Again amazing prices on that too. He also has a large amount of Loro Piana,Zegna, and Holland and Sherry fabrics to choose from.
All in all highly highly recomended. You'll seee you'll become part of the LS FAMILY.
Great suits at reasonable prices; Don't end up paying for a department store's overhead at the expense of your suit! – This is the first review I have written for CitySearch, but I really wanted to make sure that LS gets the proper recognition it deserves. I went there on the recommendation of a friend and I think it might be my best find thus far in New York. I have been living in the city for about two years now and I haven't really found a decent place to get a suit. In my line of business, I have to wear a suit every day and it has been frustrating going to so many of the so-called fancy New York department stores that purport to offer excellent service and tailoring but ultimitely produce a shoddy product. I keep wanting to tell them -- I don't care about how nice your store looks, just give me a nice suit at a decent price...
I was reluctant at first to visit LS because it was on the third floor in some midtown building and I figured that at the prices my friend told me they charged there was no way they weren't cutting corners on the suit, but after seeing my suit and spending time talking to Izzy (the owner) I was convinced -- this place is gold! Izzy has been in the business for probably more than 20 years, and he personally walks you through every aspect of buying a custom made suit. He made sure I came back to try the suit on a number of times to make sure that everything I wanted was there and that I was happy with the suit. The fabrics he uses are really great (he must have a really great deal on the fabrics because he was selling the entire suit for the same price that it would cost me to order the fabrics on their own).
In sum, great place, I really recommend it highly. One thing though, if you are looking for a department style store, where you end up spending half your money to help pay for the overhead and for the people to greet you at the door, this is not the place for you... Izzy is great, and his tailors are amazing, but he cuts costs on the lower floot rent to help you save money on the suit.
