In my very limited experience with these kinds of outfits, they deliver sub-par items that...
Quote: Originally Posted by zbromer I visited mytailor today for the third time. I've been happy with the Thomas Mason fabrics and think they do a pretty good job with their shirts. I was told, however, that they won't be offering the thick mother of pearl buttons anymore, because they were getting too many complaints about them. Sounded odd to me, because I definitely preffered them. FYI, I ordered a slew of shirts from him over the weekend...
often, while things are kept off the floor, they're available to anyone who either knows what they're looking for, or who asks.. Prada in NYC has a room where all of the bags are kept.. if you look like halfway normal they'll take you there upon request.. Miu Miu will show you bags and shoes that aren't kept on the floor upon request..
Ramon, a tailor on the LES on Orchard, or nearby, will do MTM CMT for $300.. unsure of the house style, he's done a decent amount of basic tailoring for me at dirt cheap prices over the last six or eight months.. all work done in house, one week turnaround..
This is a somewhat common practice, especially at higher end cleaners here in New York City. The practice is literally hundreds of years old. While I understand the issues that the op has as he wished to give the shirts as a gift after laundering them (which I believe would make them no less returnable than having the laundry marks places upon them) I think the original poster and many of the responses over react to the cleaner's making the laundry marks.
a friend had a few shirts made up by them - awful and he wound up bringing them to another tailor to deal with the fit..
Quote: Tiffany's history with watches is unusual.  At various times in their history, up until the present, they've slapped their name on Pateks, VC's, and others, and retailed them out of their bigger stores.  A few years ago they had a lot of success with a stylish and inexpensive line of women's quartz watches, which they promptly discontinued to try to move further upmarket with their current offerings.  I have no idea how the current stuff is selling,...
two ways to do it without overdoing it- casually i'd wear the velvet jacket over jeans.. formally i'd wear a bit more tailored of a velvet jacket with a pair of tuxedo pants.. at most of the younger benefits this past winter, there were one or two people wearing this outfit.. nice look- a bit more casual than a full on tux, but a much more distinctive look..
Quote: If you do a search on the forum, you might hit on some testimonials/advice on hemming jeans; it's come up a lot lately. People have mentioned that you can keep the original hem. I have not done this - I dunno who's qualified, willing, or how much it costs. My tailor - who's nothing special - has done a fine job on mine, but I've never asked him to maintain a hem. there's a few dry cleaning shop tailors in soho and tribeca (probably everyone...
