Best of New York Services 2004

Best Midtown Tailor

  • Guillermo Couture

    153 West 27th Street, Suite 301, 212-366-6965;

    Guillermo’s owner, William Molina, is that rare stitchmaster who is also a gifted pattern-maker and designer, and there’s almost nothing in tailoring or dressmaking that he won’t tackle (his interpretations of runway showstoppers are uncanny). But that’s not all this clothing doctor will do for you: Molina makes house calls (for a minimum of $50 in work). For simple repairs and alterations like trouser adjustments and skirt hems, he offers same-day service. Hems start at $20 for trousers and $35 for skirts. Relining a suit jacket might cost $150. Same-day service costs double.
