If you’ve been buying garments off-the-rack, it’s time to treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind suit made just for you. Welcome to the world of Made-to-Measure, where you have the opportunity to create a suit that will fit you like a glove and reflect your personality and sense of style to a T.
Here’s how it works: At Woodbury Mens Shop, you’ll choose a base style from one of many fine Made-to-Measure lines like Belvest, Pal Zileri and Coppley. Next, your measurements, posture and even lifestyle (Do you sit at a desk all day?) will be recorded. Then the fun begins—you choose colors, patterns, materials and details like buttonholes and side tabs/belt loops. The options are seemingly endless!
Donald O’Connor, Made-to-Measure specialist at WMS, says: “Once you’ve tried Made-to-Measure, you may find it hard to go back to off-the-rack.”
There’s certainly no shortage of shops on Long Island that will rent you a tuxedo. So why should you buy one? We can think of four convincing reasons:
Perfect fit: When a tuxedo fits properly, you feel more comfortable and look your best. Even if your weight changes over the years, Woodbury Mens Shop will alter the tuxedo to keep it fitting perfectly.
Dollars and sense: It takes just a few tux-worthy occasions in a decade for this garment to pay for itself. Owning is more convenient too—you’re not at the mercy of a store’s hours for returns.
Top quality: Rentals are made of the most durable synthetic fabrics. When you buy from Woodbury Mens Shop, you can select from the finest Italian fabrics.
Show your style: Make a personal statement by choosing from a variety of lapel styles, button arrangements and contrasting fabrics, among other details.
Stop by the Woodbury Mens Shop and let us show you the myriad ways you can customize a tuxedo for the special occasions coming up in spring and summer.

In the late 1960s acclaimed photographer Ugo Mulas captured Luciano Barbera wearing a Saxony windowpane suit he had created for himself using fine fabrics from his family’s textile mill just outside Milan. The stunning black-and-white image appeared in L’Uomo Vogue, and Barbera’s fate as a designer was sealed.
Today, just as in 1971, when the brand was born, the Luciano Barbera name stands for quality, made-entirely-in-Italy craftsmanship and that uniquely Italian quality of sprezzatura—described by Barbera as “knotting your tie or wearing your jacket in a natural way, leaving behind an effortless impression. The most forceful statement is understatement.”
Indeed Luciano Barbera designs are a study in unobtrusive elegance—a direct reflection of the man himself. Try out the brand at the Woodbury Mens Shop.
