Providing impeccable service is par for the course with any respected New York tailor, but what really sets Imparali apart is the pricing: The midtown shop is one of the few tailors in town that doesn’t charge extra for larger suits (the custom-made creations are priced by type of material, not the amount used). Sure, the clothes don’t come cheap—suits start at $750—but with 10,000 fabrics from top names like Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry, Loro Piana and Zegna to choose from, girthy guys can feel comfortable in top-notch formal wear fine-tuned to fit their bodies. The shop also does alterations on both men’s and women’s garments ($20–$120). Word has spread about the store’s high-quality work: Owner Matt Harpalani estimates that now about 20 percent of his customers are plus-size.
