My Internet presence isn't the slickest but I just think putting something up like that shows a lack of pride and aesthetic. Most of my stuff is shot on iPhone these days and it's always all my own pieces, I think in this day and age he's hurting himself by using google images of a rough looking blazer to advertise. Unless of course he really doesn't care which is probably not a good thing for him either.

 

Pierre is an analog tailor in a digital world and maybe one day he can update his website.

What are you uncomfortable about? Other than the smell of mothballs and his webpage, I don't recall anything to cause concern.

He's a bonafide tailor that takes time to explain the work, not only perform it. Inspeak from extensive experience with him. But I am also able to call a spade a spade.

is it worthwhile to get a top NYC tailor to work on a suitsupply suit? ~$500 suit

You look legit. The other commenters who are praising him feel like Pierre et al. is recommending himself.

We can take the conversation to PM, but I am sure it's not Peter on here writing about himself. He is a really good tailor and person, I think his daughter and son in law are too consumed with their own lives to be promoting him, plus much of his business comes from the film industry and relationships he created in that world. He knows his shit.

Just a little piece of background, my wife's boss' father has been using him for over 20 years and when I started learning how to dress better, I began using him. I have been going to him over three years now and he has done a lot of work for me and re-worked some stuff from other tailors. He is honest, in every sense of the word in my experiences with him.

Pierre is a gentlemen and I have been using him the past year on most of my suits and sportcoats. I'm not sure he has enough grasp on the English language (he's a Greek immigrant) and the Internet to be pulling a stunt as you mentioned. I feel somewhat guilty that I'm slowly transitioning my wardrobe to MTM.

Hello everyone, i'm looking for a tailor near mid-town/LIC that's good to do some pants alterations. I'm looking to lower my waist line, take off some width on the legs, and do the hem. It's a $100 pants so I'm not lookig for someone very expensive but need to get the jobs done. Any recommendation?

Another happy customer of Pierre of Paris.  His attention to detail and craftsmanship a superb.  When friends and acquaintances compliment me on my clothes, I always credit Pierre of Paris for making me look great.

You joined just to tell us this?

And I am sure it's nothing but this is the pattern that was making me suspicious. A guy is a tailor for years, nobody uses him (or at least talks of it), and then the universe magically outs him and everyone joins styleforum just to praise him.

Hi all,

 

I have like 16 or so brook brothers shirts, half are slim fit and half are extra slim flit. I'm about 5'11 and 155lbs, so pretty skinny. Both sizes billow way too much around the waist, and the slim fit shirts' sleeves are also too wide. 

 

I want to get them all tailored without breaking bank or ruining the shirt. The whole tailor that I can find on Yelp that doesn't seem to have a noticeable amount of negative reviews that say stuff like "this guy ruined my ____ piece of clothing" is Alterations Master tailor shop. However, they charge $15 per seam per dress shirt, given that I'd need to get both the sleeves and the shirt to be taken in for the slim flit shirts that works out to $60 per shirt, and $30 per shirt for the extra slim fit. I've read in other threads that in other cities it should be around $25 to get both the sleeves and shirt taken in (although I am aware that NY will be the most expensive). Does anyone know of any cheaper/ but still high quality tailors? Preferably in Gramercy area, or if not there, Murray Hill, Kips Bay, Union Square, Midtown East. 

 

Thanks

Would be interested as well. I like patterns and am obsessive about lining up patterns at seams (which is why I love H&K, but their slim fit still billows at my waist).
