Anything the least bit complicated I take to Mario. I'm not a fan of going into the city and Chestnut Hill is as close as I'm willing to travel. For simple stuff like pants hems or shortening sleeves I use my local guy.
Best tailor in Boston area? any reccomendations? - Page 7
Not a problem.
Gary has been in the clothing business for over 30 years, spending a good portion of that @ Louis Boston which was one of the best high end department stores in the world during it's prime.
Louis Brought Rubanacci and a bunch of other high end boutique makers to the states.
Have been to Jerrys on Boylston and while he has done consistent work, he doesn't seem to want to do much, say "everything looks fine as is" - Not sure I would bring him anything that needed major work.
I have also checked out Newbury Street tailors but once again, dont think I would bring anything more than a minor alteration to them..
Begs the questions -
Favorite tailors inside of Boston proper?
Joe Rizzo in Harvard is also very good. Anything I purchase that isn't MTM I bring to him for alterations. I'm sure Drinkwater's could also do it just as well but logistically it's easier to get to Rizzo's from my place and I have a good rapport with him now for alterations.
Next step for me is finding a good place to get things pressed.
