Surprising Excellence, Great Value! My wife bought me a Gift Certificate during a Sale they had on Custom Men's suits around Father's Day. Since I only wear Zegna suits, I figured the Gift certificate would not be good enough for more than 1 suit. I was pleasantly surprised! This Tailor definitely isn't what you typically think of other Custom Clothiers. He was reasonably priced and the quality was quite superior (those who have been buying custom suits from other Hong Kong Tailors know what I mean). The turn around time was just 3 weeks and I had a friend's wedding coming up. So I wore my new custom suit and got a ton of compliments. I'm not sure what their regular rates for a single suit are, but splitting the total among 3 suits, I got a great deal. I now recommend this Custom Tailor to everyone! I suppose the one con is depending on what time of the day you go in there (they were extremely busy when I went) you might not get enough attention by the staff, but it never bothered me. I would definitely shop here again.
I can't put into words how wonderful Maria Ambrosini is. I first called Maria looking for a seamstress to elongate the hem on a new dress. I stopped by and showed her what I was trying to do. She told me she wouldn't be able to do it because there wasn't enough material on the dress and if she did do it the result wouldn't be nice because of the lack of fabric. My first interaction with her proved that she is not looking to take any job and make money but that she works to make her clients happy. She was upfront and honest with me and I was so appreciative of that. A few weeks later I had some dresses I needed hemmed for my wedding and honeymoon. This is when I had my first experience to work with her. She is so kind, patient and caring. She puts her heart and soul into her work and makes sure that every little detail is perfect. She is a truly talented seamstress and dress maker...and a beautiful person inside and out! Maria has worked on many dresses for me and I have never been disappointed. Her work is outstanding!
Vijay and his staff walked me through the entire process of being fitted for a custom made suit--the encounter was unforgettable! -The meticulousness with which these suits have been custom made is nothing short of artistically superb! The jackets, the pants, the vests, the shirts--all fit as if they were specifically made for no one in the world except me! The quality of the fabric alone makes a statement unto itself. This is the signature stitch of a proper suit with all of the details finely woven into each layer. Quite simply, I am a thoroughly satisfied customer! It's going to be rather difficult for me to return to anyone other than Custom Men for my suit-making. What Vijay has to offer is, unquestionably, a cut above the rest. In fact, Custom Men is the Savile Row experience of New York. If you're serious about going custom made, Vijay knows exactly what he's doing who knows how to work with you, your lifestyle, your budget and your personal taste.
