Shocking, shocking, shocking. They lost the retractable hood of my elderly mother's expensive winter coat, which she used her savings to buy so that she would not be cold. Shimon Kadosh, the owner, was brutally rude and verbally abusive to my mother when she went in to inform him of her missing hood. My mother is 70 years old, a cancer survivor, slight, and doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body, and this grown man berated her and escalated the interaction, accusing her of lying and refusing any credits. She was so upset and angry that she asked me and my husband to get involved. We found a warm hat for about $150 (the coat, a major purchase for her, was much more expensive, and she bought it specifically for the hood, as she gets cold and ill easily). Initially, after much haggling and abuse, Shimon agreed to pay. Then, Shimon disappeared. After I spent an hour arguing with his manager Tenzig (who accused us of fabricating the whole story and denied ever cleaning the coat and made my mother walk over again to show her ticket... and then said my mother wasn't a regular *enough* customer to merit good treatment... right, what a wonderful scam, trying to get a dry cleaner to pay for a hat... and spending weeks doing it), she offered $20. Can you imagine? $20? After a month of negotiations. My mother refused the insulting offer. Shimon even informed me that he had insurance for he loses goods, but since he denied losing this item, he refused to put in a claim. PLEASE, PLEASE, do not use this horrible dry cleaner. They put on a good front (and in fact, every time they were yelling into the phone or at my mother in person, they would stop when a client walked in) but Shimon Kadosh and Tenzig should be ashamed, not just for losing a hood, as mistakes do happen, but for so mistreating an elderly customer.
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.
BUYER BEWARE! Ban the tailor is a totally dishonest man & arrogant in his belief that his customers are stupid! He was to enlarge the waistband of a new pin-striped skirt, agreeing to use the fabric inside the waistband and then replacing it with a solid fabric. When I picked up the skirt I noticed that the waistband inside was untouched but that the fabric used to enlarge it was identical. Asked where he got the fabric, he replied "I had it". Puzzled, I asked again and got the same answer. Further, he charged me sales tax & when I protested, he insisted it was legal. When I got home I turned the skirt inside out to discover he had cut into the sides of an inverted pleat (leaving it hanging free of the waistband) leaving the fabric raw & likely to unravel. I checked & learned alterations are not taxed. I returned to the shop confronted him & all he said was "I'm sorry". When I said I would notify the NYC tax bureau he returned the tax. He ruined my skirt and cheats the city!!
