Alton Lane

After having some fun at the Lilly store I met up with JCW for his appointment at Alton Lane. He had a gift certificate for a custom shirt from last Christmas that he needed to use. We were buzzed in and greeted by Neil. I immediately noticed the location of Neil's monogram which was on the lower left side of his Alton Lane shirt.

The showroom was warm, inviting and all of the masculine
touches made us feel right at home.

We looked at different shirt options. I really liked the look of the contrasting cuffs.

Seeing the ties was a great way to visualize what different patterns might look like as shirts.

"Alton Lane is founded on three principles—Better Clothes, Better Value, Better Experience"

Then came the fun part...fabric swatches! There were lots of different options and in true JCW fashion he only picked out blues.

When it was time to choose a monogram, I let JCW decide on his own because I didn't want to overwhelm him with my expertise.

Alton Lane uses a state-of-the-art 3D body scanner to obtain precise measurements. JCW stepped behind the curtain and I waited to see his image appear on the computer.

Alton Lane offers custom suits, shirts, trousers, blazers, tuxedos and overcoats. They are even opening another location in DC this fall.

Special thanks to Neil for answering all of our questions and exposing JCW as the shopping buddy I never knew I had. xx

Umm wow, that is awesome that they scan your body to determine measurements.
