Edited with the groups reccomendations. Please make any suggestions to improve it. I propose that there are 3 levels of tailors for alterations and would love to know everone's favorite in all categories. Category 1) "Money is no object, I need my Anderson & Sheppard suit alterred and I don't fly to London commercially now that the Concorde is no more and my G-V is in the shop." Basically a tailor to whom you could trust anything. Doesn't have to be expensive, but most likely is. Raphael- recommended by several Logsdail 9 E 53rd St, New York, 10022 - (212) 752-5030 Corvato 510 Madison Ave, New York, 10022 - (212) 980-4980 Raphael (212) 888-6887 Category 2) Value for money. All-around tailor that provides good value for basic things i.e. can sew button holes, but you might not trust him recutting pants. Wilfred's 18 W 23rd St, New York, 10010 - (212) 242-3030 Bhambi 14 E 60th St, New York, 10022 - (212) 935-5379 Alexis 242 E 77th St, New York, 10021 - (212) 717-9412 Peppino 780 Lexington Ave, New York, 10021 - (212) 832-3844 Category 3) "I'm not gonna pay a lot for this muffler." Can handle hems, cuffs and the basic things, but the best thing about the alterations is the price. Central Cleaners on E. 81st St. 212-249-8649 $10 for cuffs or hemming trousers. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
