Best Custom / Bespoke Tailors in New York

Today I want to talk about my two favorite custom tailors in New York City. Ok, I must admit, this will be biased feedback since both Michael Andrews Bespoke (http://www.michaelandrewsbespoke.com/) and Imparali Custom Tailors (http://www.imparalicustomtailors.com/) carry Vittorio J neckties exclusively. However, I have visited and talked to quite a few of the NYC tailors and these two by far offer the best combination of products and service.

What makes these two places stand out the most is the passion the owners have for their business. Both Mike from MAB and Matt from Imparali love to dress men. They are both perfectionist and will not allow ANY of their customers to leave their studios without being happy. Imparali wants to be the "Brooks Brothers" of the custom business and mostly targets conservative men that aim for comfort over pure looks. MAB on the other hand is a designer tailor. Both offer thousands of fabrics for suits and shirts (ahem..and of course VJ ties to match). MAB offers more creativity and encourages their customers to choose items that are "outside the box". He offers really cool designer linings as well as different colored button holes and even stitching.

I personally have two MAB suits and I'm waiting to be fitted for my Imparali suit. I'm also going to purchase a Bespoke winter coat from MAB this coming season. I'm getting excited just thinking about it.
