For when you need a trusted expert to take in or let out your formalwear without all the hemming and hawing.

Let’s face it, even the most resourceful of us — fully capable of fixing seams and reattaching buttons — balk at the prospect of major alterations, be it an invisible hem on a pant cuff or taking in a lined suit jacket.

When you need a trusted professional with a steady hand but you might not feel like your local dry cleaner is up for the task, here are our picks for where to get your suit, formalwear, and other garments tailored in and around Westchester.

 

John’s Custom Tailor

269 Columbus Ave, Tuckahoe
914.337.4501

With more than 35 years in the business, John Silva is a perennial go-to in lower Westchester. In addition to alterations for both men and women, John’s Custom also offers custom-made suits, ties, scarves, gloves, and other pieces, as well as leather accessories and jackets.

 

Jos. A. Bank

With locations in both Rye and Scarsdale, you might not realize that you can get alterations made by this national chain even if you don’t buy a suit from them. Now, with their custom shop you certainly can buy a bespoke suit, but you can also bring in your own suit and get the same level of attention to get it properly fitted, and at not-too-steep of a price.
