When asked why he chose Washington as the ideal place to open Alton Lane’s second custom tailoring showroom, co-owner Peyton Jenkins admits the decision was made for him. “With the significant overlap between business in New York and Washington, we already had a sizable customer base down here before we opened,” Jenkins explains. Alton Lane, which originally started with a New York showroom before adding an online tailoring business, is attempting to revolutionize the men’s clothing market, making custom clothes with a refined, modern sensibility. “Ultimately, our goal is to get our customers in perfectly fitted garments in as short a time as possible,” Jenkins says. Fusing old-world customer service (if you don’t have time to come in, just send in a jacket you like, and they will make it for you in any swatch) and modern technology, including a 3-D body scan, Alton Lane may just have Modern Bespoke down to a science. 1506 19th St. NW, 646-896-1212
