I used to live in Manhattan and had always heard great things about John and Paulette's.
While visiting NYC with my husband last month, we realized he needed some tailoring done to a business suit -- stat. I trekked on over to the shop and saw that management had changed.
I never knew the original tailors, but in this case, the new guard is EXCELLENT. The place is run by two Turkish/Armenian sisters. One of them is married to an Italian, hence the name SORELLE, which is Italian for ""Sisters.""
They were fast, accurate and very reasonably priced. (Fifteen bucks for letting out a pair of dress slacks.) They are also warm and lovely people.
I've seen the negative reviews below, but they've worked out the ""new business"" kinks. I would bring my clothes to them again in a flash.
Pros: VERY quick turnaround
Cons: None from my experience
