My wife and I first got in touch with The Tailory for a very specific request, which was to see if it was possible to include a qi pao (a traditional Chinese dress) in a suit. To our delight, the answer was yes! We worked with them to create this suit for our wedding, and the process was so smooth and easy! The staff was friendly, communicative, and incredibly helpful in narrowing down all of the options to choose from (there's a lot). When I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, they were patient and asked questions to help me figure out my vision.In the process of creating my suit, my wife needed to have alterations done to their dress, and The Tailory offered to take that on as well! The attention and time they gave us for both the dress and suit is something to behold. My wife and I are so grateful to have chosen to work with them. We absolutely love the finished products, and the both of us received endless compliments for our outfits on our wedding day. We highly recommend them! Top notch quality and service!

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!!!

Went to their DC pop-up and expected just to see if they were a good fit for an accent piece. Two and a half hours later, we left having finished a custom sketch design for both of us. They guided us through the design process, offered feedback when we went a little too crazy, and made sure that we got exactly what we needed (even though we didn't know we needed it!). Highly recommend.

I can't speak highly enough about my entire experience working with the Tailory. I wanted to get a custom suit for my wedding and really wanted to go somewhere that valued androgyny and the queer community. I had no idea what I was doing, but I knew I wanted something unique and sharp and the Tailory seemed to really stand out.In my consultation, led by the manager Silke (who is absolutely amazing), I gained a new appreciation for the true artistry that goes into making a custom suit. Silke took me through every detail and helped me make fashionable choices as I put the pieces together. I was grateful to have Silke's guidance because I can be kind of square and she pushed me to think bigger about my big day.After we put together the suit, the rest of the process was seamless. I had a few fittings where the Tailor really took care to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. The attention to detail, active listening and collaboration was really special.In the end I came away with a suit better than I had ever imagined. It was everything I wanted and (don't tell my wife) it really stole the show. I got so many compliments and more importantly I felt confident in how I looked. I spent the night dancing and having a blast and it held up strong. The best part is, I can definitely wear it again. The worst part is, now I can't stop thinking about what my next suit will be - its a dangerous habit to pick up! But I'm totally obsessed and would absolutely recommend the Tailory for any special occasion - or just a nice new suit! In fact, I already sent a friend who got their wedding suit there and she is another very happy customer.I can't thank the team at the Tailory enough for making me feel so special throughout the entire journey. 20/10 would highly recommend!

I loved my experience working with The Tailory! I ordered a 100% vegan custom bamboo suit in November 2020 and I get compliments every time I wear it. As a plus-size queer non-binary person, it was super important that I felt comfortable and supported during this process. I felt at ease the entire time and absolutely love my suit! I recently ordered a custom white shirt (a year after I ordered my suit) and the process was so simple. I put a rush on the shirt order and it arrived in plenty of time for a wedding I had to attend. Thank you so much, Silke and Shao!! Looking forward to working with you again in the future!

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!

Shao and Silke, the women behind “The Tailory”, has transformed the way I choose forever pieces for my closet. I am a business woman local in Manhattan and have searched for years for a custom shop I can trust to make my wardrobe dreams come to a reality. The below pictures represent my first suit created with the help of The Tailory team and the result of a masterpiece like this is, as a woman, never feeling overdressed by any man in any business room. Thank you to the Tailory team for your contribution to woman, suits and love! 💕💕P. S. I loved my first suit so much, I bought 2 more, multiple pants, shorts, a dress and leather pants.. More photos to come…

When it was time to plan my wedding, I wanted an outfit that was as festive and unique as me! My vision was something Elton John might be happy to wear, and I presented the Tailory team with my idea of "glitter raining down from the sky." As a nonbinary person, I wanted to find an outfit that was formal, but not boring, and that expressed my zest for life without relying too heavily on either feminine or masculine design elements. The team did a great job hearing my wants and needs, and coming up with a timeline. With covid, my date was delayed twice and they did a great job being flexible. I love my suit and loved the process. I'd recommend The Tailory to anyone looking for a sick outfit for a special day, including fellow nonbinary and trans folks looking for something outside the box. Here are a few photos to show off the suit!

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! Photos included taken by photographer Emily April Allen

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

My name is Shao Yang, and I am the Creative Director and Founder of The Tailory New York. I immigrated from Taiwan to the United States at the age of five, as early as I can remember, I dreamt of becoming a fashion designer.

After graduating in 2002 from Parsons School of Design with a degree in (what else) Fashion Design, I furthered my studies, working with several master tailors and other designers. 

While the concept of bespoke tailoring is ancient, The Tailory New York provides a fresh approach to a sometimes overwhelming and stuffy process. 

Why Bespoke?

While attending Parsons, many of my classmates focused on trends and streetwear, but I was taken by the precision and profound global history of bespoke tailoring. For thousands of years, the world’s most discerning and wealthiest people have insisted on custom design. Lucky for us all, these services are now available to everyone regardless of gender, race, geography, and economics. Over the past ten years, The Tailory New York has become one of the world’s most sought after ateliers from New York to Dubai, across Europe and Asia, in providing bespoke services to the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our clients are part of the design process, from selecting the fabrics to discussing points they would like to minimize and/or celebrate, color selection, and much more.

The superiority of our fabrics, to the keen design details provides a newfound confidence for each unique client. The pieces are forever heritage pieces, whether it is a custom jacket for work, or an evening out, to wedding gowns, suitings, tuxedos and more.
