Hi guys,
I've just bought a new Brioni suit, and I'll worried it is going to be just a tad tight around the chest when it comes. It will also need the waist taken out an inch or 1.5 inches. I bought it online, and I want to take it somewhere in NYC to have the alterations done. Given the choice, I'd like to take it to the Brioni store. Does anyone know if the Brioni store will accept Brioni suits purchased elsewhere for alterations? I have heard some say yes and some say no to this question, but haven't heard anything recently. Would it change things if I have purchased things from the Brioni store in the past?

If Brioni won't take it, who is the best alterations tailor in NYC? I do not really care how much the alterations cost, as long as the tailor is the most skilled person that can be found. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer me.

-Scott

Brioni will not take in a suit that you purchased online. You can take the suit to Bhambi, they did the tailoring for the old Borrelli boutique, among other stores. They will be pricey and the alterations could very well cost you as much as the suit. The other option is Wilfreds on 30 something street. They are good as long as you get measured by Wilfred (not even sure that is his name actually). Either way. for chest, waist etc except around $200 at least. I will say to you again what I said in the other thread, for what you are spending and settling for, look into getting something made.

Thanks for your advice. Would Bhambi cost more than $300? What about LS Mens' Clothing?
