The other posters seem to be correct that there are two Joe Hemrajani's. Anyway, the Bermini guy got some bad press by a member of Ask Andy About Clothes. Apparently, the customer/member was tired of being jerked around for several months so they just initiated a chargeback through their credit card company and got their money back that way. I do not know how much you paid for the shirts but this guy was able to get back $5000+ from his credit card company.

I am out of pocket almost $1,000 as a result of Bermini Tailors. I met with them last March and paid them a large deposit for them to make me a suit and some shirts. Six months of frustration later, i took them to the small claims court and won. DO any of you have contact details for Bermini Tailors? I want to try and recoup my money, but don't know where to contact Joe Hemrajani (not the Joe Hemrajani from MyTailorcom).

I have no experience with Bermini Tailors, but I do have experience with the Joe Henrajani from mytailor.com. I was referred to him from my dry cleaner and have been very happy with my experience. The shirts are of very good quality and they always arrive weeks before they were expected to arrive.

My only complaint is that I do feel a bit rushed when I am ordering shirts as there are frequently more than one customer in Mr Hemrajani's hotel room. But considering the prices he offers, I am willing to be patient.

The shirts are of execclent quality. The two that I have have laundered well and have held up nicely. They are frequently the recipients of compliments. Not to mention how well they fit. I have ordered 4 more shirts from Mr. Hemrajani and will continue to do business with him. I expect to order pants from him on his next visit to Chicago.

In my opinion he is an exceptional bargin.

I too am out some money from "Joe" Hemrajani of New York City. I have done some research on him and here is what I know (to the best of my knowledge.)

The "Joe" on the West Coast is a different person than the one on the East coast. The West coast "Joe" appears to be very good and honest and if you live on the West coast I see no reason why one would not use mytailor.com. The east coast "Joe" is quite different. The business model of Bermini Tailors then was to take payment for clothes, farm out the work to numerous different tailors/alterations/dry-cleaners and then use future down payments to pay to get the completed clothes back from the tailors they farmed out work to.

So with this model, the customer paid a down-payment (or a full payment if you were foolish like me) That money went to pay a tailor to obtain the clothes from a previous customer, then the customer who recieved the clothes liberated by your down-payment would pay the rest of their money and that money would go for the down-payment to get your clothes finished. The flaw in this plan is that clothes often have to be sent back and then debts are not paid, clothes are held, customers get angry and Bermini eventually goes out of business because their business model just does not work.

So what do you do when you have a tailoring business and an non-working business model that caused your business to fail? Well..you form another tailoring business based off the same business model if you are "Joe" (east side) and call it "Beyond Bespoke" and start over again and build up the same customer complaints as your last business.

But the different thing about Beyond Bespoke is that "Joe" is no longer "Joe" he is "JT". The business is supposedly owned by Nick Torres but really it is owned by "Joe" / "JT" Hemrajani (whose real name is Jitender Hemrajani). A while back in a City Search review Nick told people that he had "fired" Joe Hemrajani as a consultant for Beyond Bespoke and that was the moment that "JT" appeared.

In my dispute with "Joe" I e-mailed him requesting who I was to ask for a refund if it was Nick Torres, him, or the former owner of Bermini Tailors. He was insistant that he or Beyond Bespoke had nothing to do with Bermini. But when I showed him that I had phone number histories that tied Bermini to "Beyond Alterations", "Manhattan Express Tailors" and "Beyond Luggage" while tying whois and Domain registrar names to "Beyond Alterations" , "Beyond Luggage" and "Park Avenue Tailors" he wanted to quickly change the subject back to me getting my money back...which still never happened.

Anyway to answer the question of how to get in contact with Joe of Bermini in New York I would try his father's store in Queens. Everything about this operations seems to originate from there since they have no real permanent address.

That is called:

Little India Emporium
7501
37th Avenue
Jackson Heights
New York - 11372
Phone: (718) 565-6872

You can also call the phone number at Beyondbespoke.com for the Park Avenue location in New York and at the prompt of the answerign machine hit 00 or 04.

What I really recommend people doing is not calling and instead just go right to civil court because JT / Joe will lie and promise you everything and then ignore you and try to get you to retract negative statements toward his operation as a condition for a refund and then never give the refund anyway. So it is useless to call or bother them in any way.

FYI - My wife and I got totally worked over my this crook about 3 years ago. It gives me a headache to have to go through the details, but suffice it to say, we never went back after receiving a suit.

I did not fit quite right but we got it altered elsewhere to the point where it was wearable.

To All Those That Were Defrauded by Beyond Bespoke, Nick and/or Joe: Please contact me at ebfny2009@gmail.com. I am collecting information and forwarding it to the NY Attorney General's Office. I filed a complaint few months ago as a result of being cheated out of over $700 by Beyond Bespoke, Nick and Joe after they failed to finish my husband's suit for our wedding. According to the Attorney General's response to my complaint, formal law enforcement action can be taken when there is evidence of a business's pattern of repeated or persistent fraud or illegality. If you have been defrauded by Beyond Bespoke, Nick and Joe please contact me TODAY. They need to be stopped and we can do it! Thank you.

Thread necromancy, spam, and solicitation in one stroke. Kind of impressive if it weren't so annoying.
