About Us

Our History

Taglis Tailor (TT) was established in 1941 as a tailor shop in Downtown Buffalo, catering to the business professional, on a highly personal level. As a “mom & pop” establishment, customer service was their first priority.

In 1993, Taglis Tailor was passed on to Jimmylee, the current Designer/President of TT New York. As a graduate from Buffalo State College, with a degree in Business Administration, Jimmylee used his knowledge in business and his distinct eye for fashion, to bring about a company geared for the 21st century. Jimmylee turned Taglis Tailor into a custom design shop and began tailoring clothes for the “elite” of Buffalo with clients such as the former mayor, congressmen, bishops, professional sports players, entertainers, and more.

In 1998, Taglis opened in the Walden Galleria Mall, and became the first custom design tailor shop and dry cleaner to enter a mall.

In 2001, TT New York was opened in the Boulevard Mall, as an upscale dress boutique with a custom design and tailoring shop on site that values the same level of one on one customer satisfaction as started in 1941.

In 2007, Jimmylee created his own line of dresses, Jimmylee Designs. The Jimmylee Designs line was designed with a fashion forward edge kept simple and elegant. Jimmylee Designs is sold exclusively at TT New York.

In 2011, Motivator was created by Jimmylee and his partner Ashley to help make women fit and feel even better in there dresses. The Motivator line is a shapewear line that offers support and unparalleled comfort to all women.

“I’m Buffalo born, Buffalo raised, and here to make Buffalo proud!”

  • PROM IS NOT CANCELLED! In fact as we're speaking right now, there are already a number of parents in the community setting up private proms for a later date. We could really use your help as well in coordinating this private event for your children and their class.

    If each school can get 10 parents to start on their side I believe we can accomplish our goal of making sure everyone still has a prom this year. In order to keep costs low, it's time to try and bring the proms back to the school gyms as hosts. It may be difficult to convince the schools right now, but as this movement I'm going to call #PROMFOREVER gains traction, In the end it may break down into a few mini proms for a school instead of 1 big one as parents decide to host in their homes if they can't get the schools on board.

    This is going to take some work but we have the time to do it now. #PROMFOREVER. We need to get involved in the community! the limo companies, floral companies, live entertainment companies etc... Anyone who is normally involved in prom and would be affected if there was no prom.

    Many of you are thinking to yourself while reading this, yeah fat chance, you're a dreamer! But seriously THIS CAN HAPPEN. the question is are you going to be a part of it, or are you going to remain complacent and watch and see what others can do for you.

    One of the greatest joys I have in life and why I love this business so much is because I can have a thought transition into reality. I want you to enjoy this same feeling when this nonsense is all over. Not only are you going to save PROM but you are going to give so many young Americans the RIGHT THEY HAVE EARNED to experience this right of passage. This is an important step these young men and women need to take into the next stage of their lives.

    This is not a special time in human history. We have fought disease before and we will fight it again. It is through the resilience of our species that we overcome what is thought to be impossible.

    We are the Impossible
    We are Fighters
    We are Winners
