Note: This is NOT Joe Hemrajani of www.mytailor.com
I wanted to alert any customers of Bermini or Mr. Joe Hemrajani to our experiences from this past year:
We ordered 4 custom-tailored shirts on February 17, 2008 from Mr. Joe Hemrajani, through Bermini Tailors on Lexington Avenue in NYC. We paid up front through credit card and through a gift certificate. We were told the shirts would be ready within 6 - 8 weeks. We failed on several attempts to retrieve the shirts. It is now July, we still have not received the shirts. We spoke with Mr. Hemrajani and other representatives of Bermini several times during this period. We received few, if any, apologies. We did, however, receive myriad excuses. We made one final attempt to pick up the shirts this week and left empty-handed. At this point, we obviously do not want the shirts.
We attempted to obtain a full refund this week but were, again, mislead by Mr. Hemrajani. At the time we were to meet him in the Bermmini office, he was not there. In fact, we were informed by the building & office management, that Mr. Hemrajani and Bermini Tailors have been kicked out of the building for nonpayment of rent.
We have filed a suit with the NY Civil Court and are awaiting our court date. We have also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I'd be curious to see if anyone else has had similar problems with Mr. Hemrajani or Bermini. I also urge anyone who was doing business with him to use caution!
