Jack is fantastic. He was a tailor by trade, meaning he did more than just alterations back in the day, though I don't know if he has plans ever to do this again. Jack's work is magical.

Never heard of Frank's. May have to try, though Cambridge is easier for me.

It may just be me, then, who doesn't like Rizzo.
Another to try is Benny Ho. He was Louis's in-house tailor for years and now has his own shop out in green line territory. He is between Jack and Joe in terms of price, but is a honest, nice man and does great work.
