Been in business since 1960, makes bespoke suits, his father is a master tailor and has served as his teacher. Guy's real nice and knows his shit.

OP can you make "The 100 Worst Tailors in America" thread? Thanks.

I second this. They've both worked on my jackets and the thing I've been most impressed with thus far is their honesty. Great guys.

My mother has been my tailor for years, I don't think I trust anyone but her.

Ask her what shoes to wear with a navy suit.

Also, one way to find some recommendations is to call up stores and ask who they send their stuff to. I needed the sleeves shortened from the shoulder (because of functional buttonholes) on a John Varvatos jacket once so I called the SoHo store and asked where they send their stuff when they need tailoring. They sent me to Ramon's on Mulberry, I believe, just off Houston, who did a really great job.

To the OP: If you want alterations tailors this is one way to collect information. I would select the Esquire list of best men's stores in the country and ask them who does their alterations.

This is how I found a fantastic alterations tailor in Oklahoma City, by asking the best menswear store in the city (which also happens to be on one of the Esquire lists) who does their alterations. The tailor does meticulous work and even spots things that I miss, including pre-existing alterations done to a jacket I bought from the B&S forum here.

Hehe, Brown is the color of choice.
Especially on Suits that are Navy Pin Stripes.
Even she told me Black is formal with Navy but Brown looks better.

IMO, Brown is the best.

I wear the navy blazer he made for me all the time and my MTM Oxxford blazer stays in the closet. Member Full Canvas first recommended him to me. The original opinions of Full Canvas are in this post:

Because of Romeo, I no longer buy OTR and recently passed up a Brioni jacket on sale. I visit Romeo whenever I'm in San Diego and conversely I find excuses to visit San Diego so I can visit Romeo (excuses are easy to find since I have a brother in San Diego). It's been 2 years since I've ordered from him, but I'll be in San Diego 2-3 times next Spring, so I'm already planning my next order!

Andrew, you really should visit his shop and see his work close-up.

I'll second this recommendation. I've had lots of alterations done by Romeo. He's also made two jackets for me. Beautiful work, and very reasonable.

Actually, if this guy can make a morning coat, he's very notable. I don't think it's a common skill in the US.

I didn't read through the thread but I'd like to recommend my local tailor, Benny Spatola...charming guy, knows his stuff, and does great, GREAT work! He's been around for a while and his regular customers are definitely a sign of that. Spatola Tailoring 1631 W Sunflower Ave Santa Ana, CA 92704

A requirement to be on any "best men's stores in the country" should be to have their own tailorshop and tailor on premise.

I think my namesake was referring to the alteration tailors, not the stores.

Meaning that Brooks Brothers fails. Though Century 21 passes
