You need a permenante location in NY
A couple times a year I meet up with my wardrobe consultant from Michael's Custom Clothes and purchase my dress shirts, slacks and blazers. I wish they had a location in NY. I have a few friends that have been trying to get to see him but have been tied up for the trips.
I bought a dress for my daughter in L.A.(garment district) for a debutante ball and it needed to have sleeves added. I bought the fabric from a side store on oxnard blvd(like organza material)and linda's tailoring added the sleeves, and hemmed the dress, for $50 bucks. She did a great job!!!!! I was so shocked, it took her only a couple of days. She made the dress look like it came with sleeves. She did a great JOB!!! She a great lady and super friendly!!! I recommened her any day.
Finest European tailor in town!!
If you need it repaired, tailored, or even built from scratch, you won't find a better tailor anywhere. Trained 'old school' European, I've had several items altered- to perfection. Friends have had complicated costumes built from scratch, and the workmanship was amazing. Note- you get what you pay for- they aren't the cheapest, but that is not why you patronize this business- you go there for the BEST in workmanship.
No problems with these folks. Easy to see why they are popular. Recommend. They measure well, follow up quickly and offer to mend even after you take it home.
I'm on the short side so I usually have to get all my jeans altered, and Tony the Tailor does a great job. It's not the cheapest place to get clothes ...
