The 100 Best Tailors in America - Page 9

post #121 of 139
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

This is Andrew, the OP, checking back in. I'm just completing my write-up of the 100 Best Tailors in America list--thanks to you guys. Really, your collective wisdom was the backbone of this project. I really appreciate your help.

One last request: I have about 10 slots left, and I'm wondering if anyone knows any good tailors, custom or alterations, in any of the following states:

Utah
South Carolina
New Hampshire
Maine
New Mexico
Nebraska
Montana
Wyoming
Idaho
Kansas

I know they're all longer shots than, say, New York. But none of these places are currently represented on the list, so I thought I'd cast my line one more time and see what (if anything) strikes.

Thanks again. I'll make sure to post a link as soon as the list goes live.

Best,
Andrew

Probably too late, But Frank Valenti is an excellent Tailor in Vegas, that does alterations and has made suits for meny Casino owners and exceutives including the late Frank Fertitta.

I'll add one as well

Mario Cassara in Los Altos, CA. A traditional Italian tailor that can make a very nice bespoke suit, or reconstruct something that started life RTW to fit you just right.

Anymore details? I am considering taking a suit in. Would it be possible to get a general idea of what he would alter first before committing?

Glad to hear it, I've wanted to try him for a long time but never really heard anything independent about his work.

I've worked with him on wide range of projects:
-Alter a to large tuxedo, with jacket and sleeve adjustment; substantially reduce the waist by adding pleats, etc
-Tailor the sides and add hand stitched button holes to a Borrelli blazer
-Change the taper on blue jeans
-Change sleeve length and taper on the sides of dress shirts
-Adjust some of my Chan suits for my slight (ahem!) growth over the years
-Adjust sleeve length and sides and back seem of leather jackets
-Fit top coats
-Redo the back seam of a different Borrelli blaze to lay flat across the shoulders

Address is 981 San Antonio Road in Los Altos. It's a father and son operation. Best to see if Mario (father and tailor) is in if you are looking for adjustments. I have been really happy with his work, and he always recognized when I bring in quality pieces. He has done bespoke suits for a number of Silicon Valley execs. Feel free to PM if you more specific questions.

I've got your next project... if you really want to make the info you've collected even more useful, please spend a few minutes and plug the data into our collective map for future reference... (yellow markers for tailors)

He has made a bespoke suit, 6 shirts, and countless alterations for me on everything from my wedding tuxedo to an overcoat. Most telling of his work was the bespoke suit which is by far the highest quality garment I own. I can't say enough positive things about his work. You won't be disappointed.

Let me know how it goes if you decide to give him a shot.

Re. South Carolina.

Best men's tailor I found was Kostas Poulos's shop in downtown Greenville.
