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.

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.

Glad to have found this thread.
So what is the consensus - Madame Paulette or Hallak for a good suit pressing (by hand)?
Has anyone used Alpian's on 48th Street for this?

For a decent mid priced cleaners, Ms Buffy's on 55th & 8th is fine. Not high end, but they do a good job and didn't ruin any of my stuff.

I would take $2K+ jackets, $500+ pants, etc, to Madamme Paulette or similar. 20 extra bucks (or whatever it is) is worth it for the peace of mind / risk mitigation.

Out of the topic, any recommendation for a really good dry cleaner in Seattle and upper area? 

 

Not necessary to be super expensive but must be able to take care of designer' clothes
