Joe is amazing, and I wouldn't take my dresses to anyone for altering. He is wonderful. September 2016

Wonderful Man, Diminishing skills

Been going to Joe for the past 10 years and will not be going back unfortunately. Could not ask to deal with a nicer gentleman. That being said over the past few visits it is clear to me that the workmanship has fallen to way below acceptable. Even simple things like hems are looking shoddy and that shoddiness has been pointed out unasked by 3rd parties. I also had some simple detail work done on an expensive piece and that work was done so horribly it borderline ruined the piece with no chance of repair. I truly wish the diminishing workmanship were not the case but I feel the need to warn people.

Don't go anywhere else.

Joe the Tailor is awesome. My mother in law used him for years in the 70, 80's, 90's until she passed away, and she loved him. I know that the Manchester Police use him for their uniforms. He took care of my daughters most important day of her life, her wedding dress. He made it absolutely beautiful with not much advanced notice, and he took care of all the girls dresses and mine, the mother of the bride. He made our day very beautiful. The best there is. Thanks Joe

Joe the Tailor

Joe Grimaldi provides unbeatable service. He is a master of his trade and has practiced it since his boyhood in Sicily. Over 40 years in this same shop says all that need to be said! This man knows the art.
he has recently been on the front page of the Hartford Courant (CT Living Nov. 10) and his shop is plastered with reviews and references. If you want to see what the old school tailor/tailor shop looks like head down and visit Joe and the Manchester Tailor Shop!

Old World Excellence!

If you are looking for a true, expertly skilled tailor with old world excellence and an eye for detail - Manchester Tailor is the one for you! In a world with so many tailors, it's hard to find just the right one. I had some tailoring done by him when I lived in Manchester - 25 years ago and was so pleased to see that he was still in business when I moved back into the area. Still the same. If you want your pants hemmed correctly and done on time, come here. Not only that, this darling man is very personable, witty and charming. You will LOVE him, you'll see. BTW, I'm VERY picky, so you can trust he does an amazing job.
