Best of Boston

2012 Best Tailor

Newbury Tailoring Company

When the tower of too-big thrift-store finds and too-long jeans in our closet threatens to topple, we head straight to Flavio Antonio Rivas and his affable team, who nip and tuck our pants and pencil skirts to perfection, taking the time to answer our questions about fit and fabrics. Add to that the host of modern conveniences offered (They’re open past 5 o’clock and on Saturday! They take credit cards!), and Newbury Tailoring Company has this category all stitched up.
