He is definitely one of the best, along with Shattuck, Nicolosi, Corvato, Logsdail, Cheo, and Fioravanti. At that point, it is better to select based on silhouette and compatability.

510 Madison @ 53rd St. and adjacent buildings are boarded up to be demolished for redevelopment.

How about Jon Green? I know he isn't actually a tailor but at the end of the day you'll have a suit. This suit of his is sublime, particularly the trousers.

His work at the Collection looked very nicely made. I personally wouldn't work with him but I can see why someone would.

I didn't know you were at the convention.

I had a birthday party to attend and after or before I tried to enjoy the time.

Around 2:30-3. We later went to a yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant downtown called Gyu Kaku that has some outstanding sake.

When were you there?

Perhaps 5-10 selections of shochu but I have not tried any there.

I think that is a fair estimation. I wish there were more, rather than a dwindling handful of custom tailors.

Oooh, didn't we leave out Logsdail and Sanitate? Not that ive ever had the pleasure but I hear good things.
