Best San Francisco (or Bay Area) Tailor?? - Page 2

post #16 of 37
Thread Starter 
Following up on this. About to take some nice stuff to get tailored and wanted to see if anybody had any recent experiences or new bright ideas?

Have been going to Franz now for about 5 years after trying many of the others listed on this thread. Expensive, but worth it...

Perfect timing on this thread - about to go get a bunch of jackets taken in. Franz sounds like the guy.

Another vote for Oxford. As noted, they are not cheap and they typically ask for two weeks to complete their work (although they may do it fast if necessity calls and if they can accomodate). I have tried others on account of their cost, but have since decided to stick with them after another well reputed local tailor ruined a couple of pairs of trousers.

I still vote for Oxford. See my earlier posts. But, the last two jobs I gave them were late. So allow plenty of time.

Franz is great. Has anyone worked w/ Escobar Brothers? They quoted me $350 for CMT, canvased.

Is he the Russian guy.

Bob is in the process of doing a suit for me which I bought for very little.
So far so good. I may have him remove some padding from the very soft
but extended shoulders. He's done this before successfully. He is behind
schedule with the pants which have too long a rise. He's also done this before
for me very well. But he's not the go to guy to have something done quickly-
unless it's simple and you make it clear that you need it by a date certain!

Somebody care to post a picture or two of the buttonholes done by any of the recommended tailors?

Reviving this thread.  I am looking for a tailor near palo alto i.e. on the SF Peninsula.  I have used Cassara Brothers a bit but also looking for other options.  I've read about Ricardo in sunnyvale and Bob in Menlo Park.  Are these two still the go to guys?  Looking for the whole gammut of tailoring.  Thank you so much.

What are you trying to have done? I've used Bob Stankovic before but I would not use him for certain things.

Fairly simple things for now.  Hem pants, shorten suit sleeves, add buttons for braces.  Later on will add working button holes for surgeons cuffs, tuxedo needs to tighten the suit waist to get a better fit.  Those kinds of things.  Thanks!

Stankovic can do all those but I'd be careful about letting him shorten sleeves by the shoulder.

I've had a bad job regarding that issue.

Thanks for the advice.  Shouldn't need to shorten from the shoulder since only 1 cm of shortening needed hopefully.  Anyone else you would recommend down on the peninsula?
