Opinions on Cardelino Tailor? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Pedro, the elderly tailor at Cardelino, does good work, but you have pay attention to details and be a bit persistent to ensure that he gives you exactly what you want. There was some sloppy loose fabric in a jacket that I had him shorten, and it took him several times to get my pants right. That being said, he's always willing to go through as many iterations as required. A good man, and I'd have no issue with going to him again.

Uh, so where is the Tailor and not the dry cleaner located? I got the address from a link someone had put up in an old thread here, but they had done the conflating.

BTW, is 4" from the tip of the thumb the well, uh, rule of thumb?

It's on broadway (east side) between 23rd and 22nd. You can't miss it.

should be at least 4 1/2" if you want to show some shirt cuff.

Why is there this rule of inches? Don't people have different size hands?

I just want the coat cuff to end in that little notch where arm joins hand. Shirt cuff, when buttoned, is half an inch longer.

I wonder the same thing about the 'rule'.

But it's funny, because I like my shirt to end at that joint, and my coat cuff shorter...

Thanks for the directions on Cardelino's--I'm heading there now.
