I know I'm beginning to sound like a broken record talking about this guy, but Alexis at 242 East 77th did a good job for me. Not cheap, I dont think ($200 for taking in the waist on the jacket, shortening sleeves, fixing pants waist and cuffs) but good.

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

Where can I go for a very simple slimming down of shirts/ pants? Preferably under 34th st area (lower manhattan) and pretty cheap satisfied.gif

I was going to try him before NSM started making trips to NYC 2 years ago. The sleevehead blog is the only place I've heard of him, sleevehead reads/posts here (not sure of his SF name) so maybe he can give some more color as he has also tried NSM.

In terms of Raphael, I think there is only one and I don't think he is making suits anymore but I could be mistaken, a few people here are customers so maybe they'll chime in.

Has anybody ever heard of Carmine DelGuidice? He used to be on 57th for ages, but recently (a few years ago) moved next door to my parents in Jersey. He still cuts and tailors all himself at his house. I saw his workroom. Looks nice.

If Tom James owns Oxxford I might shoot myself. Tom James, as far as I know, is a joke.

the same company owns TJ, Oxxford, Individualized shirts, Holland and Sherry too I think. Anyway. you are asking for very different things when yuo are asking about Tom James, NSM/Neducci. You sound like you need to be edumacated on different house styles, difference between bespoke/custom/mtm and various costs. There is a lot of info on NSm on here and probably Tom James if you search. That will lead you to discusions on other tailors and styles.
