    Hi all,

    I just purchased some purple label at a great price. Anyone know a good tailor who can work on sleeves, waist, etc

    sam wazin, not cheap though, what exactly do you need, simple alteration can probably be done elsewhere for cheaper

    Well, I suppose things change and the thread doesn’t always update. In that spirit, I can unfortunately report that Cardelino has turned over staff and isn’t very good anymore.

    Hi all, Where is the best NYC place to get pants/jeans tailored?


    Idc for well known places or small sweat shops. I am looking for someone skilled at doing the hemming and tapering. I've been going to denim surgeon and everytime I go the fit is gawd awful. also its super expensive. Maybe it's the way i explain it to them, idk

    any recommendations? how do i ask for the jeans to be shorten, but also tapered skinny but not skin tight?
