It is rare that I speak extremely positively about something here on FYGblog. But like most things in life there are those exceptions. And perhaps MyTailor should be classed as one of said exceptions. Why? You may ask.
Quite simply, my suit fits well; really well. It looks good, really good. And it feels good, really good. And the service provided by Joe Hemrajani was spot on, I had no requests go unmet. But I suppose this is all something you should expect if you were to pay $1,099 for a suit. Sadly, I know so many gentlemen pay much more for much less.
In the first MyTailor post I spoke on the initial fitting and fabric/detail selection. Roughly 8 weeks after the initial fitting I received my suit in the mail. Once Mr. Hemrajani returned to New York (he comes every quarter and will be here next September 28 & 29 and October 1-5. I have met with readers before for appointments with MyTailor and acted, hopefully successfully, as a free style consult of sorts. If you are interested in this feel free to contact me) we met again and settled on some necessary alterations. Of which there were only a few minor ones; we let out the thighs, nipped the waist and lengthened the pants. MyTailor takes care of all alterations free of charge. However, the downside of having MyTailor handle the alterations is that it will take a few weeks to get your suit back; this would be my biggest criticism for MyTailor. However, on future suits the alterations are taken into account during production and they should be unnecessary. Also for future suits, given that your measurements and profile are on file with MyTailor you can order from their website or via email. Making appointments a luxury instead of a necessity and allowing you more freedom to order when you want.
The balance of price, fit, service and fabric selection is stellar. However, be aware that suits start at $699 and that it will take at least eight weeks to have your first suit, but likely more with alterations. But also know that the patience pays off. For one needs to go into a venture like this with a long term, not short term view. It is not about getting just one suit made it is about developing a relationship with your tailor. In conclusion, I give a strong recommendation for MyTailor. If you have any questions or comments, sound off below.
