John Allan's has long been Wall Street's one-stop shop for a shave, a shoeshine and a stiff drink. Starting August 15, the clubby barbershop's Midtown LOCATION will be providing its elite clientele with another service: Alexander West bespoke shirt fittings. "Every shirt is made from scratch and customized for the individual," says Alexander West designer Alexander Yoo. The fittings take 15 to 45 minutes for first-time customers. Measurements take about 10 minutes, but fabric browsing and style choices can take longer. "If the client doesn't know what fits best, we can always guide them in the right direction," Yoo says. Estimated shirt delivery time is between three and five weeks. Appointments are suggested but not required. Shirts from $125. 46 E. 46th St.; 212-922-0361; johnallans.com.
