Best dry cleaners in NYC? - Page 3

post #31 of 58
I assume either will work for a stained DB? Both in the cleaning and pressing dept.

i was unpleasantly surprised by the odd press from madame paulette on my 2 button suit jacket

hallak had no such problems and removed stains well - though ended up delivering a day late (though actually, so did madame paulette)

thus my vote would be for hallak

i am now trying meurice, which is downtown - other than the unnecessarily rude person at the desk, from word of mouth and based on information here, it seems to be of good repute - will update on the outcome

I decided to go with Hallak, hopefully will work out. Let me know how meurice works out, downtown option is more convenient for us south of 14th crowd

Meurice did fine and delivered on time

So, other than the unnecessarily rude guy at the counter, certainly no major negative issues.

However, since Hallak picks up and drops off, unless I'd like to point something out in particular that would be better done in-person, I would more gladly use Hallak given the lack of rudeness.

@jesPak or anyone who has used Meurice, do you recall the cost of dry cleaning a suit or sportcoat? I have a SC that another dry cleaner stained, inexplicably, and needs taken to someone great. I'm thinking Meurice is the best South of 14 St option.

 

The SC is, unfortunately, cotton-linen, which I understand is extremely difficult to remove stains from. Still, Meurice has a reputation as a stain specialist.

^also, may I have some current thoughts on Hallak as well as if anyone has used the sponge and press service at Jeeves (http://jeevesny.com/services/gentlemans-garments/sponge-press)? TIA.

I use Hallak for my bespoke coats because they will correctly repress the lapel roll.

^does Hallak offer sponge and press, or other type of hand/spot cleaning?

Don't know. Never asked.

My experience with Hallak was horrible, they refunded, but still horrible. They essentially removed the buttons off a DB jacket without asking yet they charged me for this. The main issue was that they didn't sew them back on in the right place, and also forgot to sew the interior buttons back on, so basically I couldn't close the jacket. The main stain was removed though I had to send the jacket back to the tailor to "recalibrate"

Hallak has always done a great job for me; I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Which cleaners are you referring to when you write "they?"

I've used Hallak twice, most recent visit was about 2 weeks ago. As mentioned earlier they removed the MOP buttons from one of my suits but told me beforehand but I'm suspect about how they re-attached, just looks not as well sewed as the original and not even sure it was necessary.
Regardless of it being a good job with pressing great lapel rolls the $225 for x3 suits all with x2 pants each was a shocker.
Need and want to find an alternative, lucky I don't clean often/try to avoid.
