Today’s Saturday Stumper

Today’s Newsday Saturday Stumper, by Brad Wilber, is difficult. At first I thought it’d be a breeze. 1-Down, six letters: ”Supervisor of deck hands”? Kid stuff! But then I moved on.

The clue that broke the puzzle open for me: 38-Down, seven letters: “Made just for you in London.” Most fiendish clue of all: 16-Across, four letters: “Cap conclusion.” ITAL? TAIN? No. As always, no spoilers: the answers are in the comments.

DEALER. BESPOKE. APIE. That is, cap-a-pie or cap-à-pie, “from head to foot.”
