Zohreh Uomo on 54th Street
JM Weston/Paraboot shoes next to Baroni suits, which are priced like at over $1,000. Lots of Etro. Lots of Altea ties (about $75). Staff/owner all female, not too pushy. Unknown italian sounding shirts and pants, along with some mid tier known brands. They also do some sort of MTM service, have no idea who the manufacturer is. Typical client is young (25-35), and likes flashy stuff.
The owner came to my office with the swatches in a looseleaf. I bought an extra shirt. The shirts probably were made by one of the Gambert factories in New Jersey. The shirts were OK; nothing extraordinary.
I picked-up the shirts at its former store on Third Avenue between 57th & 58th. The owner showed me a basted sportscoat. He said that he did bespoke tailoring and that he was very proud of his tailor's work. It looked like the real McCoy.
The owner gave me good service, and I am still on the mailing list.
The clothes are Italian influenced and a bit flashy for my taste. The clothes are not on the same level as Borrelli and Vacca. At that time I was a Brooks MTM and Flusser Custom customer. Therefore, I did not return.
I pass by the store on my semi-annual visits to my doctor down the street. It seems that the clothes are the same, and nothing displayed gets me terribly excited.
The owner must have a solid and loyal following, and that speaks well of the establishment.
I have shopped at Zohreh many times and I've had a great experience every time. I don't recall meeting the owner, Sean, but I have met with and been helped by, at one time or another, every employee of his: the sales associates Goska, Jenny, Laura, and the tailor Marco. In fact, if the store is not too busy, two or even three of these associates can be assisting you at the very same time, which is a pampered feeling indeed. All of them are very knowledgeable; they are also cheerful and pleasant. Marco is the same and likewise excels at his work. The selection of clothes here is amazing: beautiful clothing, very reasonably priced (the price even includes routine tailoring).
