Best Tailoring Shops in New York City
Instantly, that droopy silk caftan you picked up on a whim is approved for wearing to happy hour. Those long tweed pants you’ve been stuffing under your sweaters become fit for a weekend getaway. This fit can be drastically altered by releasing hems, shorting sleeves, or even adding darts. Function can be changed as well. Layers are removed, pockets tacked on, and lining added. Trusting a tailor with your new second-hand steal or beloved hand-me-downs doesn’t have to be intimidating. New York has no shortage of affordable, reliable tailors who are masters of their craft. Vintage clothing can be reborn in the hands of a tailor. Even ready-to-wear items can become more wearable with a few modifications. From going uptown to off the beaten path, Passerbuys has your tailoring needs covered.
