Step into Lord Willy’s, a Nolita haberdasher on Mott Street, and you’ll quickly see that Alex and Betty Wilcox, the husband-and-wife team who opened the shop six years ago as a custom shirting emporium, and who have more recently moved into other categories, not only run the place but practically live here. Lord Willy’s offers suits in ready-to-wear (from $2,700), made-to-measure (from $3,100), and fully bespoke (from $4,000). The standard Lord Willy’s suit, designed with a mind toward getting men to stand out while still feeling comfortable and confident, has a square shoulder and a relatively heavy canvas to give it structure. Taken together, the mix of color and English cut, homey atmosphere, and the downtown cool-kid address give the Lord Willy’s experience a kind of freshness and sense of humor that you don’t get with most top-notch New York tailors.
