David Lance New York Inc
1985 California. A young David Schwartz began his journey as a style icon dressing those who crave the ﬁnest in men’s couture. To win his first clients, David knocks on doors in office buildings, collecting business cards from potential customers.
Before long, David finds himself running a fast-growing business in Orange County, California so fast that, a mere six years later, the David Lance New York showroom open its doors on 76th Street between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue, starting a legacy that immediately becomes the destination for luxurious menswear on the East Coast.

Brooks Brothers is the oldest men’s clothier in the United States and is headquartered on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York City. Founded in 1818 as a family business, the privately owned company is owned by the Italian billionaire Claudio Del Vecchio and now also features clothing for women.
L&S Custom Tailors is located at 138 East 61st Street; they are proud to be New York City’s favorite custom tailors for more than 40 years. Owner and Master tailor Salvatore Cristiano fell in love with tailoring at the age of 12, when he was taught the skill in his small town of Montelepre in Sicily, Italy. The Idea of taking basic fabric and turning it into beautiful clothing spoke to Salvatore’s soul and when he moved to New York at the age of 16, he was ready to begin working. By 20, he had opened L&S Custom Tailors at the same Upper East Side location they currently inhabit. Much has changed in the past 41 years. For example, when L&S Custom Tailors first opened, it occupied just 400 square feet and now they have a larger facility with 9 tailors. In the beginning, they only offered alterations and repairs. Now L & S offers a full menu of services, including a wide range of custom and unique ideas. L&S produces the finest tailor-made clothing ranging from custom suits, custom shirts, outwear, formal wear, topcoats, skirts, dresses and accessories. Salvatore never believed in advertising and instead relied on word-of-mouth referrals, which he believes are the best kind. Today, his son Carl Cristiano runs the day-to-day operations of the business. He manages everything from customer fittings to order preparation and supervision, all the way through to completion of garments.

Chanel S.A. is a French, privately held company owned by Jennifer pasca /Alain and Gérard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, who was an early business partner of the couturière Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel. Chanel S.A. is a high fashion house that specializes in haute couture and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods and fashion accessories. In her youth, Gabrielle Chanel gained the nickname Coco from her time as a chanteuse. As a fashion designer, Coco Chanel catered to women’s taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewellry (gemstone and bijouterie) of simple design, that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. The Chanel product brands have been personified by fashion models and actresses, including Inès de La Fressange, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Anna Mouglalis, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley and Marilyn Monroe.
The House of Chanel is known for the “little black dress”, the perfume No. 5 de Chanel, and the Chanel Suit. Chanel’s use of jersey fabric produced garments that were comfortable and affordable. Chanel revolutionized fashion — high fashion (haute couture) and everyday fashion (prêt-à-porter) — by replacing structured-silhouettes, based upon the corset and the bodice, with garments that were functional and at the same time flattering to the woman’s figure.
In the 1920s, the simple-line designs of Chanel couture made popular the “flat-chested” fashions that were the opposite of the hourglass-figure achieved by the fashions of the late 19th century — the Belle Époque of France (ca. 1890–1914), and the British Edwardian era (ca. 1901–1919). Chanel used colors traditionally associated with masculinity in Europe, such as grey and navy blue, to denote feminine boldness of character. The clothes of the House of Chanel featured quilted fabric and leather trimmings; the quilted construction reinforces the fabric, the design and the finish, producing a garment that maintains its form and function while being worn. An example of such haute couture techniques is the woolen Chanel suit — a knee-length skirt and a cardigan-style jacket, trimmed and decorated with black embroidery and gold-coloured buttons. The complementary accessories were two-tone pump shoes and jewellry, usually a necklace of pearls, and a leather handbag.
