The Jacket

The feel of English ancestry with a touch of Italian blood. The result? A clean and defined look.

Each David Lance jacket that we create is hand cut. All jackets can feature either a full canvas front construction or our ultra lightweight, semi-constructed garment. All jackets offer luxury details such as hand-sewn buttonholes, mother of pearl or horn buttons, hand picking at every seam, and an unlimited choice of linings. We can include customized interior pockets for cell phones, PDAs, passports, and eyeglasses—each cut to the precise sizes necessary. After the body of the coat, shoulder line and sleeves are basted together, we then start to really fine tune the jacket for the ultimate fit.

The Shirt

Slip on one of our French-cuff, British spread-collar numbers and not only will you feel like a international man about town, you'll vow to never again opt for off the rack.

Imagine the finest shirt fabrics available from across the globe. Think, a Swiss cotton, an English gingham check, an Italian end-on-end, or a French voile. It is from these fabrics, and so many more, that we create the world’s most exceptional dress and sport shirts. Each shoulder line, collar and cuff is individually cut and created to suit your needs. They will feature hand stitching, and we use only the finest mother of pearl or natural horn buttons...always hand sewn. The options for a truly customized shirt are limitless. We then can finish off each shirt with your handcrafted monogram. That is correct, all of our personalized monograms are hand sewn and all our fabrics are preshrunk to assure a precise fit.


A key component to a man’s personal style is often the accessories he chooses.

We have procured a wide range of silks and cashmeres from all over the world that we utilize daily to make our fine neckwear. It’s just the beginning of how David Lance accessories start to tie your personal look together. Our fine handmade neckwear is cut and made according to each client’s face, shape and size. These details, along with your own natural style, are what ultimately bring it all together. As well, we offer beautifully cut and hand-rolled fine cotton and silk pocket squares….they’re always a fabulous touch.

A bespoke or custom handmade belt doesn’t just suddenly appear. You choose whatever it is that you want – whether it’s a fine calfskin or textured buffalo, or a more exotic skin such as hornback alligator or ostrich. We then finish it with a silver or brass buckle of your choice and, once again, assure the perfect fit. We make it just for you, from scratch. That’s why it’s called bespoke.

Classic or Private, either way it is time to get started.
