Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the showroom of Imparali Custom Tailors on 5th Avenue in New York City. It was a pleasure to sit down with head tailor, Matt Harpalani to pick his brain about the history, service and new features of the custom clothing brand.
- Imparali Custom Tailors has brick and mortar locations in NYC and in Houston Texas, as well as, their ecommerce site www.Imparali.com. Be sure to follow them via @Imparali on Twitter and Imparali Custom Tailors via Facebook.
- Custom Suits, tuxedos, sport coats, shirts and trousers. They also carry Vittorio J ties in store.
- The price will vary depending on the fabric choice and extras added to orders. Prices will range from $500 to $2000 for custom suits.
Men’s Style Pro’s Review
So, there are many things that really make Imparali one of helluva custom clothing brand. Their showroom experience is top-notch (the recently added bar might add to that feeling too). Matt, the head tailor at Imparali, isn’t just knowledge about custom menswear, he’s just a great guy to have a conversation with about anything. The fabric selection in terms of custom suiting options is really out of this world. Imparali offers fabric from many of the top of the line mills like Scabal and Loro Piana, but, always support the smaller mom & pop fabric shops. When thinking of the bells and whistles for your suits, the sky is the limit in terms of options (think quarter line blazers, 2 inch cuffs on trousers, functional sleeve buttons). I was fortunate enough to have a three-piece, glen plaid, wool suit made by Imparali and I have to say it is one of my favorites hands down (feature coming soon).
For the person just getting into the custom menswear game, it is great to know that Imparali offer free alternations for life as well as a 20 year warranty on your suits. All suits jackets are fully canvas (no fusing) and my favorite detail is that the buttons are anchored on your jackets (which is a feature I am to see in any other custom clothing brand). With the addition of their eCommerce site, anyone is able to purchase their products online and can consult with their style advisors live via the web (E-tailor service). Overall, Imparali gets an A for service, product and general experience.
Special thanks to Matt Harpalani and the Imparali crew for letting me drop buy and get all measured up.
