Both are good but they are pricy. I have sent my bespoke stuff there; my "regular" stuff I just used with an old gentleman (actually I think he used to be a bespoke tailor in the old days in Italy) on 65th between 1st and 2nd.
Phil-Madame Paulette any good from your experience?Cost me my left leg for a suit clean? (Hallak already took my right one! :-)
Oh, Hallak. I live near their plant in Jersey and used them once to clean a suit. $47 to clean a suit!!! They did a nice job, but really? That's crazy! Are there many places in the city in that ball park?
Madame Paulette have always been among the best in the city ( dating back to when there were many quality cleaners in town), while Hallak were run of the mill until the 80's when the son ( or grandson, I forget) took over and upped their game to compete with Madame Paulette.
