I did some hunting on-line for LNC. There's not much, but I found a few things that may be of interest. I'll be going there sometime this week to get the lay of the land. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rion/125845177/ http://flickr.com/photos/franklynch/124934563/ L.N.C. Custom Tailors Messrs. Lee & Chu have been making men's and women's clothes at 83 Baxter Street behind the Tombs for a long time. Best Bargain: An odd waistcoat ("weskit", please). This 19th century holdover from The Land of Tailored Tweeds has to fit right (no belts). It is made of the same material all around (not lining material in the back). Suggestion: Stop in at Modern Woolens or Beckenstein (Orchard St.) or Singer (Delancey St.) and take your choice of material to LNC. A couple weeks (and a couple fittings) later, tuck it under a tweed jacket or dressy suit (over shirt and tie or a light-weight sweater) and look better than a Paul Stuart model (at half the cost).http://cityguide.aol.com/newyork/sho...id=&_dirquery=
Quote:The City Look by universitydon posted November 17, 2004 \t\t Messrs. Lee & Chu, of Baxter Street in New York's Chinatown offer hand-made tailored clothing at reasonable prices. I have had several suits and jackets from them over the years, and I continue to think of them as the place to go. A couple special items: odd trousers and waistcoats. With odd trousers going for $85-$110 (plus tailoring charges...) in the discount stores, LNC is highly competive and the pants will fit better, last longer. Mr. Lee makes my waistcoats with the same material all the way around (not lining material in the back); the result is a functional garment (warm) as well as something stylish. The only caveat: You must be absolutely clear about what you want, and you need to take several fittings.
