Vista 1976 is a game-changer. Founded over 40 years ago by Paolo Vista, the menswear emporium boasts an extensive array of impeccably designed Italian-made designer wool suits and menswear. For years, Vista 1976 has served our community with distinction, suiting a multi-generational client base of discerning shoppers. At the forefront of men’s fashion, the company is a leading manufacturer for retail stores throughout the nation. Setting standards of excellence for quality and design, Vista 1976 selects its fabrics from the top mills of Biella, Italy. Vista carries over 5,000 suits, sports jackets, cashmere and wool overcoats, shirts, ties, and more. Simply stated, Vista 1976 is the definitive source for the man of great style.

And what great style you’ll find! Paolo Vista was truly a legend; a master clothier who took immense pride in the exquisite craftsmanship of his signature suits. Today, his sons Andrew and Paolo are the proud bearers of their father’s honored legacy, maintaining the highest standards of integrity, quality, and unsurpassed service that has been the company’s hallmark since its founding.

Located at 55 Plaza Road in Lawrence, Vista 1976 features a stellar selection of stunning suits in a vast array of patterns and colors, in the most wanted styles. In the tradition of his father, Andrew Vista views his business as a labor of love and values every client. Providing premium quality and service, Mr. Vista is an integral part of the fabric of our community and an absolute pleasure to do business with. With meticulous attention to every detail, Yaakov Dollman helps customers select the proper pattern and fit of suit to make them look their best. Little wonder Vista 1976 has been called “New York’s Best Kept Secret”—but such secrets are best when shared with others.

Nothing says “Let’s do business” more seriously than a well-executed Italian suit. The way you dress in a business setting says more about you than words ever will. For business or social events, showing up in a finely tailored suit is precisely what you need to command the room at conferences, meetings, and social events. Italian suits are classic, effortless, and typically provide a much cleaner, neater fit than their American counterparts. They are trendy and form-flattering.

We asked several of Vista 1976’s customers to share their thoughts regarding their shopping experiences. Below are their responses:

“Gorgeous suits and great customer service!”—MG

“If you’re looking for a perfect fit, different styles, and the finest Italian fabric, Vista 1976 literally has it all! I picked up a few jackets and two suits and couldn’t believe the total price. I had expected to pay almost double for this high level of quality. Vista 1976 is a win-win situation!”—JS

“Amazing place. So much to choose from, all with a unique style. The detail, colors, and patterns all stand out. The feel and cut of each garment are flawless and well worth the price. Highly recommended!”—EP

“I bought a three-piece suit and four blazers and I get compliments wherever I go. The personalized service and knowledge I received from the owner himself was outstanding. He suggested styles that fit me best, and between the vast selection of styles and material to select from, the experience far exceeded my expectations. It’s rare to find this handcraftsmanship these days.”—VC

“Shopping at Vista 1976 is an amazing experience. I walked in, explained what I was looking for in my wedding tux, and walked out with a fit-like-a-glove measured tuxedo. They carry all sizes of every style on the rack and if it is not in stock, they will order it. I have definitely found my go-to spot for formalwear in New York. To pay $250 for a full suit from Italy is New York’s best kept secret!”—YM

“We’ve been very pleased with the merchandise, quality, and service, as well as the prices at Vista 1976. We keep coming back and go nowhere else for men’s suits.”—AG
