?BUYER BEWARE! Ban the tailor is a totally dishonest man - and arrogant in his belief that his customers are stupid! I asked him to enlarge the waistband of a new pin-striped skirt ........... we agreed that he would use the fabric inside the waistband and then replace it with a solid fabric. The fee was $75.00. When I picked up the skirt I noticed that the waistband inside was untouched but that the fabric used to enlarge it was identical. I asked him where he got the fabric and he replied "I had it". Puzzled, I asked him a second time and he gave me the same answer. Further, he charged me a sales tax and when I protested, he insisted it was legal. When I got home I turned the skirt inside out and discovered that he had cut into the sides of an inverted pleat (leaving it hanging free of the waistband) leaving the fabric raw and likely to unravel. I also checked and learned that alterations are not taxed. I returned to the shop and confronted him and all he said was "I'm sorry". When I said I would notify the NYC tax bureau he returned the tax. He ruined my skirt and cheats the city while collecting taxes ................ be warned...............he lies!
