Alan David Horowitz currently serves as the fourth generation clothier and owner of Alan David Custom, a business originally started by his great grandfather in 1926 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and later taken over by his grandfather Moe Ginsburg. His grandfather was a well-respected figure in the New York retail industry for decades, which was instilled in Alan at a young age. Having spent summers and winter breaks working at his grandfather’s store, Alan took a strong interest in the clothing business from the beginning. While he did attend college and worked as an accountant for Deloitte & Touche for two years, Alan knew that his passion was in the family business.

Alan’s success is backed by his company’s four generations of expertise in measuring, pattern making and tailoring.
