Custom shirtmaker Alexander West has set up shop inside the Midtown location of John Allan’s.

With Alexander West’s tailors now being on hand through the fall to fit gentlemen for shirting, it only adds to the experience that is John Allan’s. More info on location and hours below as well as a few shots of the space.
