Local Asian tailors in NYC?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can anybody here recommend a suit and shirtmaker in NYC that does bespoke or MTM but the work is done in Asia to save on costs? I've tried Luxire and I'm impressed but I'd like to try other tailors and have some variety. I'm really interested in seeing if I can get better quality than Luxire in the $1500-2500 2 piece suit price range.

Ercole's pricing has skyrocketed in the past few years and I was unimpressed with Lee Baron. I have thought about going directly to martin Greenfield in Brooklyn but I haven't heard any comments on people's opinions who actually followed through with it. The bespoke and MTM labels doesn't mean much to me but I am looking for a soft tailored, full canvas suit quality (machine stitching is fine).

I've seen several of the dry cleaning/tailoring shops on the UES (Lex and Madison) offer "custom" suit and shirtmaking options where they do the measuring and pattern there and then send it to Asia to do the work. Typical turnaround was much slower than Luxire.

I know there are lots of threads on here on NYC tailors but most of the threads are either of the top $5k+ tailors, traveling tailors or low end (Mr Ned).

Thanks for your advice.
