THE TAILORY NEW YORK IS POPPING UP IN WASHINGTON D.C.
The Tailory New York is an appointment-only, women-owned, and operated bespoke clothing company that combines modern fashion design with the heritage art of custom-tailoring.
We believe that custom suits are genderless, and pride ourselves catering in equal measure to men, women, and non-binary individuals. Custom suits can convey a specific identity or image to the world around us. When designing a suit, we always ask ourselves: Who is the wearer, and where will they be wearing their suit? What are they trying to communicate to the world around them? And how can we create a suit tailored to their unique style, physique, and gender identity and/or expression? Our ability to wield the power of fashion to meet the singular needs of each of our clients sets us apart from other custom clothiers.
TAILOR FOR INNOVATIVE CUSTOM SUITS IN NEW YORK AND BEYOND
While custom suits are typically associated with uniformity, we like to get creative (when possible!) when designing suits. Whether that involves playing with color blocking or selecting a funky patterned lining to give a classic navy or charcoal suit a sense of playfulness, we are all about innovating and looking to the future. Our clients are bold, ambitious, and accomplished, our hope being that the one-of-a-kind clothing we create, tailored to their bodies, design preferences, and lifestyles, will serve as an instrument for success, self-affirmation, and self-empowerment. Our clients inspire us everyday, encouraging us to keep disrupting the norm of suiting.
TAILORED TO YOUR BODY, DESIGNED TO YOUR PREFERENCES
Giving our clients a silhouette that projects confidence, enhances their self image and overall affirms their identity and expression is what we strive to do everyday. Though people sometimes think of us exclusively as the makers of some of the most fashion-forward custom suits NYC has to offer, our offerings also include shirts, trousers, dresses, jumpsuits, and overcoats. That’s right: all custom, never boring! We have earned a reputation for our fine quality and a dedication to uncompromising style.
OUR CUSTOM CREATION PROCESS
Custom clothing can be a little daunting for first-timers,
but we try our very best to make the process as seamless *wink* as possible.

A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER
The idea for The Tailory New York began when I decided to direct my years of fashion design and men’s tailoring experience towards my own wardrobe. As a pantsuit aficionado and a lover of men’s fashion and tailoring, I was always drawn to tailored clothing and strived to create fashion that conveyed the same message of confidence that a perfectly custom-tailored suit did for men.
Style icons like Sean Connery and Cary Grant, as well as modern-day 007 Daniel Craig (shaken not stirred), were always my style inspirations. To me, they are the epitome of refinement and sophistication, true gentlemen in style. My passion for fashion and tailoring led me through the Fashion Design program at Parsons followed by stints in custom tailoring, fashion design, fashion styling, and brand development.
But the more I integrated myself in the industry, the more I realized that impeccable fit, for men and women, was almost impossible to find in ready to wear clothing. So in 2013, I launched The Tailory New York as a way for me to combine my two passions: Fashion Design and Custom Tailoring. Everyone wants to look their best and having a wardrobe curated to your body and lifestyle not only enables you to look your best but makes you feel your best.
Let us curate and design the wardrobe fit for you!
Shao Yang, Founder
The Tailory helped me design the long JACKET & CAPE of my dreams for my wedding! I never liked wearing dresses, and when I fell upon this company, looking for a femme/masculine/edgy style, I knew I had to pursue them to help me create the look I desired, from the custom jumpsuit and long jacket WITH SPIKES and bling! My wife was obsessed with it upon our first look and my outfit was the TALK of the night and MOST anticipated from our guests! Everyone LOVED my look and it truly reflected me and my style! Highly recommended!!!
The Tailory was the most delightful experience about my entire wedding planning! These ladies are all professionals making me feel completely at ease with what I was going to receive! I was in search of the prefect jumpsuit and they delivered the wedding jumpsuit of my dreams!! I searched every single website out there for jumpsuits and all I wanted was something elegant and simple. I was surprised nothing out there existed! I tried buying high end designer jumpsuits from department stores, for double the price of my custom jumpsuit, but nothing fit me. They were made to fit tall slender women and the proportions did not work for me. This custom jumpsuit they created for me fit like a glove and I was able to dance like a crazy person at my wedding with no issues! They also worked seamlessly with my mom who wanted to make my cape veil for me and they were so easy to collaborate with! I cannot rave enough about their work, this place is amazing 10 stars if could give them more!!!!
I had never had a custom garment made for me before, but I will certainly have another suit made by The Tailory NYC in the future. When my wife and I found this woman owned business on Instagram, we hoped it would be an affirming experience to work with them for the suit I would where on our wedding day, and it certainly was! Silke took the time to understand what we wanted and who we were in our first consultation and gave us so many great options for materials to make my suit perfect for me. They stuck to their word on timelines throughout the process and kept us informed each step of the way. Highly recommend!
CUSTOM WOMEN SUITS
How annoying is it that custom suiting has primarily catered to men, but off-the-rack isn’t accessible to all body types? This isn’t okay!
The only size you should be looking for is YOUR size, and The Tailory New York creates perfect garments tailored to the client’s individual body.
Everyone who comes to us has a chance to personalize and embellish their designs to best express their personality and trust that it will fit and flatter their silhouette.
CUSTOM WEDDING SUITS AND OUTFITS
From understated to extravagant! From classic to modern!
Absolutely NOTHING is off limits and everything is attainable to make your wedding garments extraordinary. The Tailory New York team has yet to be faced with a style or design that can’t be achieved, and we will be right there along the way to make sure the client is dressed to perfection for their big day!
*We advise starting the custom process at least 4-6 months prior.
The key to designing a winning suit is remembering the finest details!
Getting to know the wearer’s personality and what they are wanting to communicate to the world is the most certain way to deliver premium custom suits.
At The Tailory, we are committed to creating garments that best represent the client’s unique style and physique to encourage them to flaunt their truest and most authentic self!
CUSTOM FEMME SUITS
Our philosophy is that everyone deserves a wardrobe that is designed with the wearer’s personality and style in mind.
For custom femme suiting, we steer away from tradition as we play around with fit and design details to accentuate the natural curve of the client. A more elegant and softer silhouette forms as we strengthen the shoulders, cinch the waist, and taper the pant leg. Kicking expectations to the curb and achieving a look that is singularly YOU!
CUSTOM MASC SUITS
We believe the straight but fitted lines of traditional suiting should be accessible to all. The classic aesthetic is perfect for any and every formal or business occasion. A mid-rise pant and a sharp silhouette elevates the masc aesthetic associated with traditional suiting.
The Tailory New York is recognized for delivering custom tailoring that is singular and celebrated for its precision.
