Good Tailor? Richmond VA?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any recommendations? I have tried Zimm and he seems capable of doing hems and repairs, but not true 'fit tailoring'. I have tried Vincent and he is quite pricey and again does not seem to have the patience to really get the fit right.

Yeah, Zim is sort of over rated. Haven't tried anyone since.

In asking the question, I should have defined my expectations. Obviously I am aware that a RTW suit will probably never be as well fit as a MTM. That being said, I don't think it too much to have a tailor interested in more than just the vertical and horizontal sizing (sleeves, pant legs, waist). As well, I am not that interested in someone who will tell me how "if I was doing a MTM then...". Is it unrealistic that one can locate a nice (Oxxford, Brioni, Canali, Borelli, upper end Hickey or such) and so long as it generally fits well, have it tailored so it looks good? The best guy I have ever found is the guy who owns Franco's...but I'd prefer not to pay retail to get a good tailor. If I am washed up or wrong in my expectations, pls whack me on the head.

Subscribing in case someone offers a good recommendation. I've just been using cheap tailors. They get the job done, but I'm in looking for someone better to go to.

Bumping this in hopes someone has a recommendation. In addition to some hemming, I also need a sportcoat taken in at the waist ...
