Anyone know any good tailors around the Soho/Greenwich Village area?

From what I'm reading about LNC perhaps I'll try them next.

Doesn't sound unreasonable.

Not fully custom.

Oops! I meant $200 per suit. That makes it half as reasonable, I guess.

Indeed not as reasonable as I previously thought, but seriously though, if you think he did very good work, it's money well spent.

I think he did. Sleeves should be showing a bit more shirt cuff but maybe the shirt I was wearing was off, I dont know. Probably my fault. Waist suppression, tapering of pants, all well done I would say.

If you have more money than you know what to do with, go to 84th st and York ave and walk towards 1st Ave. You'll walk by Adamidis Stilianos. He altered a suit for me that was about 2 sizes two big, 3 in some places, and made the suit not only wearable, but looked great. Then he took my favorite sport coat that no longer fit so will since I had lost some weight, and sealed up the vents and gave it an impossibly slim silhouette. He's expensive, $350 for the suit and sport coat and wants to charge me $300 to get an Oxxford CLothes blazer tailored.

 

On that note, does anyone have any recommendations for a tailor on the UES that isn't so expensive but whom you would trust with your favorite blazer? Thanks

At the risk of repeating myself, This chap......

.....did very nice alterations on a suit for $200. Not cheap, but considering he did waist suppression on the jacket, shortened the sleeves, took in the pants waist and hemmed them for that price, I dont see how it could be $350 for your jacket. He did a good job.

I am looking to have some restoration work done in midtown on a button and buttonhole on two different suit jackets. Good work is more important than cost. Are Bhambi and L&S my best options?

I went to L&S and had a very bad experience, they basically didn't do any of the alterations requested by my visiting tailor (I now have him do them).  For my other stuff I use and recommend Peppino (no bad experiences yet, very good work).

Did the waist suppression or sleeve work entail adjusting the shoulders?

Ban Tailor on First Avenue between 80 and 81.

My wife has used both Adamidis ( "Stanley") and Ban. Both are excellent. Ban is a little less expensive. She is mostly using Ban now.

Good luck.

Very helpful - much appreciated MS!

I am new to New York and need some alterations done to a few suits and a couple pairs of pants.

 

Can anyone recommend someone reasonable but who I can trust working on a few pricier items (ie not your neighborhood dry cleaners but I don't want to spend more on the alterations than the clothes themselves)?
