No matter your level of sartorial knowledge Alton Lane
is the place to go not just for your suiting needs but also for shirts, ties and even pocket squares. I had the chance to visit their New York City location and see for myself the location and all that it has to offer. One of it's crown jewels is the 3D body scanner. I had them scan me, you know, to get the full experience. The scan is quick and reminded me of the fountains at the Bellagio (you'll have to try it out to find out why) which provides all the measurements needed to make the best fitting suit/shirt. Once your measurements are recorded you can go on to choose the fabrics from some of the best mills in Europe. There are a variety of samples of the styles on hand to choose for your future suit and shirt so you know exactly what you're getting and might see something new to try out.
Their mission at Alton Lane is to create a space where men can feel comfortable to hangout and shop. With a flat screen TV, bar and even a not-so-secret poker room (at the NYC location) you'll have a great time while getting an awesome suit. Don't worry, they have locations all over the US and are planning on opening a few more in the very near future.
