Quality Garments

The garments are made with the utmost quality. Care and time is taken so that every measurement, and pattern is individually designed and perfected. Not only can the garment be expected to meet customer’s needs, but also far surpass their expectations.

Personal Touch

Only exceptional and personalized detail is given to each design and garment. Each stitch is stitched with care, precision and perfection. The garments are then finished for the customer’s specific requirements.


Finding the perfect fit for an individual can no longer be accomplished with simple numbers. Through years of experience, not only can we measure correctly, but also seamlessly fit a garment to uniqueness of each clients shape. This is accomplished by taking into account the individual’s posture, shoulder incline, and numerous other aspects of the person’s form.

Lawrence David (known to everyone as Butch) has always had a passion for luxurious fashion, which was fostered by a career as an accomplished apparel manufacturer shortly after college. Butch ventured off the apparel track for a few years to pursue a career in finance, only to return to the fashion industry once realizing that his interests were truly seeded in the Men's Luxury arena.

In 2004 Butch acquired a 15-year old Custom Tailoring operation from Martin Lewis, whose reputation at that time was considered among the finest in custom men's apparel. Butch renamed the company LD Custom Apparel, and has continued the same tradition of offering products that meet impeccable standards while emphasizing personal attention, meticulous detailing, and quality craftsmanship. Butch David is a distinguished Board Member of the Custom Tailors and Designers Association (CTDA) and the only designated Master Custom Designer (MCD) in New York City.

Butch's clientele includes an interesting mix of individuals from the finance industry, the field of law, senior business management, as well as from other professions where impeccable and elegant wardrobing is essential. They rely on Butch because he offers highly skilled custom tailoring, and his expertise and impeccable sense of style makes the selection process quite easy to navigate.

LAWRENCE DAVID CUSTOM APPAREL is one of the best resources for the discriminating gentleman who is looking for impeccable wardrobing.
