    Best denim tailors in NYC that aren’t Williamsburg Garment Company or Denim Therapy

    Really want to taper my current roster of jeans this year but I want to make sure that it’s done correctly - with a Caballo chain stitch sewing machine and all that. I also want to try a service that isn’t as excruciatingly far from where I live in Nassau County as Williamsburg Garment or as...

    problems with shoulders and quarters of preowned jackets

    I recently purchased a preowned burberry blazer. The problem is that the shoulders have been altered before and have a creased appearance to them, and that the quarters of the jacket are very open, resulting in the bottom of my shirt peaking out. I am wondering whether a tailor can realter my...

    Is my tailor BSing and upselling me?

    Earlier today I was trying a new tailor closer to me. I had purchased a jacket pre-lockdown that needed to be taken in at the waist, and having lost a few extra kilos during lockdown the need to be taken was even greater. I usually wear a 40 drop 7 (sometimes 8) jacket, and this jacket is a 42...

    Artful (not invisible) Repairs for Tailoring?

    Hi folks! As someone who enjoy collecting vintage clothing both for its novelty and thrift, I often find myself facing a question about what repairs I’m willing to make/live with to save/refurbish a piece I love—especially in regard to tailoring. For instance, a fantastic suit find has a moth...

    Suit jacket alternation multiple times

    Hello, I got a suit jacket around 1 month ago, and got the waist taken in a bit. When I tried it on it feels good, but with one button closed it's just a little bit too tight. Would it be possible to let it out a bit? I know that's possible, but since it's already been taken in earlier. Thanks...

    On misbehaving side adjusters

    Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere. I did a pretty thorough search and couldn't quite find a solution. Side adjusters. While they seem to be the preference for most mens bespoke trousers, I've always found them rather finnicky and annoying. They slip, essentially. I wonder whether...

    RIP Thomas Pink's 'Freddie' Shirt

    Thomas Pink have discontined this shirt which was really a work of art with it's stretch fabric, short neat collars, darts and split seam at the back.
