Tailors in NYC

Wow, this is like popcorn. OK then.

All youse New Yorkers: anybody recommend a decent tailor? This is for some detail work. My wife got this amazing Vivienne Tam skirt at a secondhand store in the East Village, which needs to be taken in a little, and the fabric is like neoprene. She doesn't feel right just bringing it in to the local drycleaner/tailor/laundry, and I can't say I blame her.

Check out Penguin Fashion [(212)227-6316]; it's a men's tailor, but the staff could refer you to someone who could work on your wife's outfit.

They're at 111 Nassau St., on the 'hat.

Ramón's at 306 Mott Street just north of Houston is where the John Varvatos store sent me for alterations on a suit and they were excellent.

Oh, and here's a New York Mag list of recommended tailors from a couple years back.

And Craig's list might have even more detailed info if you ask on there.
