The latest addition to the city's booming digital-bespoke-menswear scene—yep, that's a thing—is Acustom Apparel, now open at 330 West Broadway. What sets Acustom apart is their body scanning technology, which takes 200,000 data points across the male form, creating a hyperdetailed 3D model used for creating customized clothing.
Casual wear—like chinos, jeans, and plaid shirts—are available in addition to suiting. A host of color, fabric, and style options are available depending on the garment, including a choice of sleeve and collar styles. Once the custom order is complete, it can be shipped directly to the customer's doorstep, or sent into the shop for a second fitting. When the garment—and its pattern—are perfect, future orders will be subject to a discount as part of the company's Cut Club.
