Business Tips: Four Great Tailors in Manhattan

Whether you’re preparing for an important job interview, client meeting, or even a wedding, looking sharp is a must for leaving a positive lasting impression. When you need your dress pants hemmed or suit jacket taken in, keep in mind these four great Manhattan tailors:

Alterations Master Tailor Shop

Find some of the best tailors around at Alterations Master Tailor Shop. Head to one of three different locations based on your needs—Men’s only tailoring on Fifth Ave, Women’s only on Madison and rush alterations on 34th Street. Alterations Master Tailor Shop specializes in upscale brands like Armani, Gucci, Prada, and Tom Ford but can accommodate all of your alteration needs. For 10% off your alteration (excluding rush), visit their website’s appointment page to view the coupon, contact their team for a price quote, schedule an appointment and more.

Men’s Only: 545 5th Avenue
Women’s Only: 590 Madison Avenue
Rush: 112 West 34th Street

Saint Laurie Merchant Tailors

Saint Laurie Merchant Tailors is another high-end option for your alterations. This midtown gem is a go-to for custom tuxedos and shirts. Their staff will ensure you have the best fit for any special occasion. If you’re unsure of what you’re looking for, they’re more than happy to point you in the right direction. Fun fact: Stephen Colbert wears Saint Laurie on “Late Night.”

Nelson Tailor Shop

Nelson Tailor Shop on the Lower East Side has you covered—literally. The shop can fix any holes, tears, ripped seams and so forth in a breeze. Customers rave about the quality of service, consistency and care displayed by the tailors. While you’re on Rivington Street, stop by Morgenstern’s that made our list of Best NYC Ice Cream. Hours are 9am-6pm, Monday through Saturday.

Silhouettes and Profiles
