I ordered three shirts and got them on-time as promised. The problem was one of the shirts was not the color I ordered (I ordered a beige-yellowish color but got a white one). Ove...

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/28/2013

My new suit from La Rukico is excellent and looks great. The fit is perfect, it is comfortable and yet the lines are quite smooth. They offer an exquisite choice of fabrics, many from top fabric companies. The service is friendly and attentive, and the prices are quite reasonable, especially when you compare the price of these tailored suits with excellent fabrics with the price off-the-rack suits at top stores. The turnaround from original measurements and fabric selection to the final suit was about 3-1/2 weeks -- very reasonable. Mr. Kelly is personable and a fount of good advice on details and fabrics. more

My wife and I have made to trips to New York to see Mr. Kelly. His shop is outstanding. We got four suits, an overcoat, four blazers and five shirts in three weeks time. All fit perfectly and the quality amazing. I highly recomment Mr. Kelly and his team. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/11/2013

My fiance has always had a difficult time fitting into nice shirts. He has a smaller frame and has always spent additional money to have shirts tailored after he purchased them from a store. They still never looked perfect on him. \r \r We found La Rukico Custom Tailors after purchasing a groupon deal. Mr. Kelly quickly identified why shirts do not fit properly and spent time taking his measurements and learning about his personality and style to make him the perfect custom made shirt. The shirt fits him perfectly and I love it! The detail and exquisite work that went into creating the shirt is amazing! \r \r We loved the shirt so much that we are having a custom made suit made for our upcoming wedding! We have already been back to the store to discuss options for a suit and will be returning for the first fitting at the end of the month. \r \r I look forward to working with Mr. Kelly and La Rukico Custom Tailors. I know they are going to make my fiance a perfect suit for our special day! \r more

Mr. Kelly and his team (Neil, Ben & Max) will take care of you starting with your fitting and the necessary adjustments after your suit/s arrive. My best tips-take your time. No, REALLY take your time :-)! Ask about the different fabrics, weight, pricing. Knowing what you want helps, but Mr. Kelly can help guide you. He can look @ your body type and keep you from making any crazy mistakes. If you're body type demands something special tell it up front-examples, long torso, pant rise, weird pecs, etc.. Best to bring a suit you like-and your dress shoes. Fashion pics. Whatever. On your measurements make sure you give yourself room for walking, bending, working, sitting. It even helps to bring the style shirt you wear. The shirt weight, size fabric, collar style all make a difference in building the look you like. Mr. Kelly has shirt styles there and I have bought shirts and they are just excellent. This is tailored clothing and I have found that standing like a model in your new suit doesn't quite get it-you need to stretch and move around to get the ""feel."" Be as precise as possible about every aspect of the style suit you want and you will be a happy return customer! Be prepared for the possibility that you will need some tweaking-it's inevitable. After all it's what makes custom custom :-).\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/11/2013

For considerable time I have struggled to find a tailor who I trust will not ruin my clothing and that I am comfortable setting free with expensive items. After a referral from an old friend and long time satisfied customer of Mr. Kelly, I had a pleasant experience with La Rukico Custom Tailors.\r \r Mr. Kelly spent considerable time and effort digging through fabrics and catalogs while offering valuable guidance and insight towards fulfilling my vision for this custom order. After a thorough and comprehensive fitting for 3 pairs of custom pants, the final product arrived earlier than expected, with each pair fitting perfectly, as measured and promised. Additionally, I worked with the tailor through a comprehensive fitting to transform a poorly tailored off the rack suit to a near custom fit for a very reasonable price.\r \r Fortunately, I was able to work with Mr. Kelly to settle on a mutually agreeable price. He was also happy to propose attractive offers for repeat and referral business based on reasonable incentives. I am very happy with Mr. Kelly, his staff and the service they provided. I look forward to working with Mr. Kelly and La Rukico Custom Tailors in the future. more

Great Experience 2/4/2013

Best Tailor in NYC. Forget the high end Department Stores, Mr. Kelly will suit you in a top quality suit for a more than fair price. He only uses the finest fabrics, and the fit is perfect. Also, for sport coats and overcoats, he is the one man to see. I have my friends and family suited by Mr. Kelly\r they are all impressed. Pros: All more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/9/2013

For nearly a decade, I?ve been looking for the best custom tailor in the city, and I?ve found him time and again in Kelly. He owes his splendid fabrics to the likes of Ermenegildo Zegna. He owes his sharp sense of fashion to the world. And he owes apologies to no one. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/18/2012

I just bought a suit and some shirts. Mr. Kelly delivered exactly what he promised, a perfectly fitted and high-quality suit. I'm surprised about the few negative reviews I've seen on the web; they don't jive with my experience at all. I paid less than I've paid for bespoke suits in the past, got better service and the suit truly looks like it was hand-made for me. Fits like a glove. more

Great Fabrics, Affordable, Delivered on Time 11/27/2012

I went to La Rukico custom tailors for a custom suit last week of October. They had a good selection of fabrics and Mr. Kelly guided me with on some style options as well. I opted for a custom suit and also selected 4 custom shirts which were promised to be delivered in 3 weeks time. I am happy to receive the products 2 days before time and the fit is really good. I'd give this place 5 star rating coz - its affordable, had world class fabrics and they have a no-nonsense professional attitude more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/27/2012

This establishment provides the finest and most genuine custom made suit and shirt fabrics for those who don't want to pay department store prices. The fabrics are genuine and do not provide all the fake ""Super 100s"" level materials which are actually made of polyester and are itchy which most other competitors out there provide. more

really bad custom made 2/15/2012

doesn't give you time to talk, doesn't listen to what you have to say, doesn't return your e-mails, doesn't provide alterations and lastly, extremely long two month turnaround time. more

the worst tailor in nyc 2/15/2012

Very entertaining & good food 12/13/2011

My previous Italian tailor retired so I was in the market for a new one. Mr Kelly was recommended to me by my attorney, so I ordered a custom suit and 2 shirts and was highly impressed with the quality, fit and style. It's refreshing to find another old school tailor who is reliable and skilled. Pros: null Cons: null more

Best Tailor in NYC 9/15/2010

On his website it reads ?Mr. Kelly is a timeless style coach who will mentor you through the process of making you a suit.? In my case that sentence fits perfectly, I purchase my first custom suit 11yrs ago for my first real job right out of college. I visited several retail stores prior to my meeting with Mr. Kelly, they showed me no particular attention and some literally ignored me. Out of frustration I yahooed ?tailors in nyc? (google wasn?t yet available back then). Hong Kong tailors/La Rukico pop up, so I made a visit. more
