Jeeves of Belgravia
39 E. 65th St., nr. Madison Ave.; 212-570-9130
Services: Dry cleaner, ecofriendly, tailor, leather/fur cleaner.
“Thank God they pick up and deliver—I call them to dry-clean my most precious clothing. For example, a museum piece that had serious stains, including rust from the metal and red wine from a birthday celebration. Jeeves came to my door and assessed the damage, then returned the dress in pristine condition.” —Michelle Violy Harper, brand consultant

Madame Paulette
1255 Second Ave., nr. 66th St.; 212-838-6827
Services: Dry cleaner, ecofriendly, tailor.
“You can schedule online pickups and drop-offs for anywhere in the city, so I used them for specialty cleanings even when I lived downtown. Recently, a client’s spray-tan bled onto one of my grenadine-pink dress designs—on the collar, in the lining, everywhere—and it was returned to us in impeccable condition. They remove stains you’d ­never dream were removable.” —Juliette Longuet, designer


East Village:

Chris French Cleaners
57 Fourth Ave., at 9th St.; 212-475-5444
Services: Dry cleaner, ecofriendly, tailor, leather/fur cleaner.
“This place is reliable for cleaning everyday shirts and pants and has a phenomenal old-world tailor as a bonus. She recently repaired a Chanel jacket for us—which had fallen off the mannequin and torn on the way down—and the stitching is virtually undetectable.” —Kreg, co-owner, Cadillac’s Castle

Mike’s Cleaners
62 Ave. A, nr. 4th St.; 212-674-1957
Services: Dry cleaner, ecofriendly, wash-and-fold service, tailor, leather/fur cleaner.
“I’m obsessed with dry cleaning, and these guys haven’t let me down in the three years I’ve used them. The vibe is also mellow; no antsy customers or waiting in line.” —Maryam Nassir Zadeh, boutique owner

Village Shoe Repair
52 University Pl., nr. 10th St.; 212-473-7802
Services: Shoe repair.
“These guys have revived some of my most precious shoes—including a pair of hot-pink satin Rupert Sanderson pumps that I had a little too much fun in during Fashion Week, partying on an apparently very dirty floor. Thanks to Village, the pumps no longer look like pink-and-black zebra print.” —Jennifer Collins, founder, pinkclouds.com


Lower East Side:

Lau’s Wash & Dry Laundromat
123 Rivington St., nr. Essex St.; 212-388-9229
Services: Dry cleaner, ecofriendly, wash-and-fold service, self service, leather/fur cleaner.
“Their wash-and-fold service is prompt and reliable; the machines are old-fashioned but work just fine. What’s special about this spot is the people-watching, since the Lower East Side is such a melting pot, and laundry-day outfits are hilarious, no matter where you are.” —Maryam Nassir Zadeh, boutique owner

Recently, we custom-made a raw-denim blazer for a client, and it bled onto his white shirt; G&G put it through two cleaning rounds and finished the job by hand to remove the stain.” —James Jurney, co-owner and designer, Seize sur Vingt
