    Sorry to be a pest guys, there's a lot to read here. I just need simple suit alterations done right the first time between 14th St and Chinatownish area. Any suggestions?

    edit: after going 3 pages deep, looks like I'm going to LNC.

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for a tailor to alter a new Kiton overcoat by slimming down the sleeves and taking in the waist. I'm willing to pay a decent amount for it since I don't want to mess up such an expensive coat and I have high expectations for how I want it to look. After doing some research, I've narrowed it down to Leonard Logsdail, Nino Corvato, Sam Wazin, and Ercole. If anyone has any advice for me on those tailors, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you!

    you have mentioned custom tailors. They make their own clothing.
    I doubt, they want to mess around with your Kiton overcoat

    I could be mistaken.

    If they are not busy and want to work on your coat, you will be seriously over charged.

    You've actually narrowed it down to only one as the only one there that will alter your coat is Sam Wazin. Maybe Ercole, but I don't know him so can't say.

    I've seen Ercole (Frank) take alterations work in Brooklyn (his Manhattan space is definitely not set up for that), but it might be only for existing clients.

    I've done many times and have not bought MTM or bespoke from him.

    I have done plenty of alterations at Ercole's brooklyn shop. No hard sell.

    Ercole pays more attention to his bespoke compared to alterations in my experience. I've done both bespoke and alterations.

    I cam across a new alteration Tailor in the NOMAD/Midtown area

    Peter Field
    http://www.peterfieldcustom.com/all-tailoring-alterations-locations/

    they started in Chicago, and now have a spot at 1239 Broadway, 3rd Floor 917.704.5383

    I had a topcoat that need sleeves shortened and a pair of pants that i blew out the crotch.

    they did an excellent job

    I have no idea how they compare price wise to other local tailors.

    I can recommend them.

    Anyone recommend a good tailor in NYC or NJ that can alter a couple shirts? Need the chest (and sides?) taken in - heard this was tough to do.

    Thanks

    it is only hard if it is a non iron shirt that is glued together.
