Pinpoint tailors on 33rd just west of 3rd Ave.

I pay less, maybe $15? IIRC, but my seamstress is a bit out of the way for me (FiDi), but he always gets the job done.

A lot of these people are transplants who haven't gotten used to the jacked-up NYC cost of living yet.

I'm born and bred New Yorker, just cheap.

Are you happy with the work? I just moved to FiDi, would be glad to know of a reliable alterations tailor nearby.

just stopped in to Pinpoint on 33rd. His baseline for a taper is $70. has to be a joke... Any other suggestions? Understand that $30-40 is probably reasonable but 70 is a bit egregious.

From the sides, in midtown, that's close to what others charge. Taper from the center sometimes is about $20 cheaper. I'm sure there are less expensive places downtown.

Thought I PMed you, but checking back doesn't look like I did. It's Wagner's Tailoring on Fulton Street. I've been happy with his work so far.

Hey all - seeking information for a friend. She has a beloved wool coat, mid-thigh length, with a lining that's now gone to tatters. She lives in Bushwick, works near both Union Square & Woodside Queens. Does anyone here have recommendations in those areas for a solid "Level 2" tailor able to replace that lining? Many thanks!

Don't know a "Level 2" tailor is but I recently tried Flatiron Tailors and they've done nice jobs on a number of alterations for me. It's about 10 blocks from Union Square so they're convenient.

Lining replacement should not be hard, no?

I would think not! And "Level 2" was just a reference to the opening post of this thread. Thanks for the suggestion

Ah! That explains it... maybe I should review that page!

Good luck and I hope the lining replacement works out

There's a very reasonably priced Dominican guy on Woodside Ave just east of 61st St.

Wasn't aware of the levels either. Just had a gander.

Anyone got some recent recommendations for great alterations work in Brooklyn? I live in clinton hill. Figured it would be cheaper if I can find a spot in BK, but Im wary of bad work. I need to find somewhere to take Attolini/kiton/brioni stuff and not have it ruined.
