Best of Boston

2017 Best Tailor

Newbury Tailoring Company

We approached the crew at Newbury Tailoring Company with a horizontal-striped dress and an innocent question: “Will hemming it mess up the pattern?” Turns out, we had no need to worry. Flavio Rivas and his team have tackled far greater challenges, inspiring customers to follow first as they moved down Newbury Street in 2009, then over to Boylston four years ago. We can see why: Exactly a week after dropping it off, we were reunited with our beloved frock—every last stripe intact.
