Someone was blowing smoke about their experience at BB, unless they were lucky. Most of the work for the tri-state BBs is done in a shop on Long Island, and IME is hackwork. If you asked for something quickly at 346 - and 346 only - it was sent to Paul Winston.

The English take their right to wear capris for granted - they know they're lucky to have good tailors.

Here's what I'm looking for: the names of the top tailors you've had the pleasure of visiting. They can make full bespoke suits. They can stop at alterations. But they have to be skilled craftsmen who really know what they're doing. And they have to come from all corners of the country.

I'm planning to consult several other sources: local shops, Yelp listings, etc. But I think that you, the members of Style Forum, could be the most important influence on this list, if you're willing to chip in. Eventually, I'll be speaking to each of these tailors individually and writing up 100 short reports that will be published in a high-profile, yet-to-be-launched web magazine--and that will hopefully bring these men and women some new business while serving as the go-to resource for guys like us.

So please, fire away. Thanks so much for your help.

Andrew

You should go back to your editor and tell him he's missed the basic theme of the story.

High-end men's tailoring is fading away. Tailoring as an art is disappearing.

When you conduct your interviews, note the average age.

That's the story.

Thanks, Coburn. I'm in complete agreement. I hope to make a point of it in my introduction to the list--and to write more about the dying art of tailoring in the future.
