Mr. Chiu cited eye problems as the reason. Sad to hear, but he seems in good spirits.

Was just there Saturday as well, in fact was my first time there, sorry to hear that they may be closing. As my first experience at a true tailor shop (i.e. had only experience with simple alterations at local cleaners) I was happy that he made suggestions about the suit I brought in which were in keeping with what I was going to request. If he were to close, where might you go in the downtown/chinatown area next?post #621 of 79110/30/12 at 4:36pmpost #622 of 79111/1/12 at 12:05pmis the LNC you guys are referring to the one on 83 baxter? i've been looking for a tailor and was going to check out The Tailoring Room in the LES, but LNC is closer to me.
FYI chinatown and the rest of lower manhattan is closed. i was there yesterday and its been the first time i've seen it so desolate.post #623 of 79111/2/12 at 10:51amThat's the LNC. They do quality work and were, at least initially, inexpensive. Now not sure. Brought in three pants, one for hems, one for hems and tapering and one for repair of a torn seam. Price was $50. I think price is still pretty good but not as inexpensive as the first time I brought stuff in.post #624 of 79111/2/12 at 8:33pmpost #625 of 79111/14/12 at 6:42pmpost #626 of 79111/17/12 at 10:51pmpost #627 of 79111/18/12 at 8:34ampost #628 of 79111/18/12 at 10:59ampost #629 of 79111/20/12 at 7:36pmpost #630 of 79111/29/12 at 10:58am
After reading this entire thread front to back in search of a new alterations tailor, I've dropped off an Isaia suit at Cardelino. The one at 174 5th Avenue. I asked the gentleman there if he was Pedro and he said he was. He was kind, helpful, professional and listened to all of my feedback. Since my proportions are what they are, there usually isn't much fitting to do with better OTR Italian brands for me, so he's just adjusting one sleeve, hemming the trousers with cuffs and sewing on the sleeve buttons with non-functional holes. I decided to try him out before I get surgeon's cuffs, though I did feel pretty confident with him right away. The total bill is only $44. $18 for cuffs, $18 for lengthening the one sleeve and $8 for sewing on the buttons. These prices are lower than my last two places.
I'll report back once I pick up my order, but wanted to put it out there that both Pedro and his son (I went to the Bwy-22/23 shop first and he directed me to his "father" on 5th Ave) were really nice and professional.
