Just dropped off a topcoat and 3 pants at LNC. I had the sleeves and body shortened in the topcoat, 2 pants were hemmed, and 1 pant was hemmed and tapered.

 

Came out to $133 total. I believe the breakdown was $70 for the sleeves, $30 for the shortening, and $33 for the pants. I'm Asian but I don't think I got the Asian discount, although only $11 for tapering and hemming a pant is quite a nice deal (usually runs me around $25).

 

I also want to add Wo's Custom Tailoring on 71st and 2nd. He's expensive but he does great work. I recently brought a BB suit that had some issues with rippling in the back and he was able to clean it up and reset the pitch of the shoulder as well.

Looking for a full service tailor in/around midtown. Have two MTO suits that I need tailored/tweaked on a somewhat urgent basis. So need to get it right the first time. It's stuff I would've taken to PoP two years ago, and would like someone of comparable skill/quality.

Is there a consensus view on who that might be?

I have used Sam Wazin and highly recommend him. I've had a suit, 2 jackets, and several pairs of trousers altered by him.

I have a pair of deadstock 1950's J. P. Stevens & Co. army twills that are too long and need to be hemmed and I need a solid reliable tailor with same-day turnaround. These are the only casuals that I packed so I'm in a bind. I've been wearing them rolled which looks stupid. Anyone have any good recommendations; ideally between Upper East/Midtown and SoHo? Also open weekends and preferably Sunday (ie. not Winston) ... I really just need someone competent enough to cut and cleanly copy the original hem stitch, so a good alterations spot is fine as long as they know what they're doing. Thanks!

I suppose this is kind of a broad inquiry... Midtown and open on Sundays (with same-day turnaround) would really work best. Thanks.

I have a pair of AG jeans that I received as a Christmas present.  I've lost weight since then, so they are now far too large in the waist, at least 1".  Is it worth it to have them taken in at the waist, or should I put that money toward a new pair from Gustin?  They have several pairs for $77; rather than spend $25 altering jeans, would that be a better use of my money?

Just realized Dynasty Tailors closed down. Joseph was always a pleasure to work with. Anyone know by chance if he closed for good or moved to a different location?
