What should I bring when having clothes fitted?
Always bring the correct undergarments, shoes and/or belt (specific to types of alterations and garments fitted). We can’t guarantee the correct fit if, for example, you choose to have the pant length marked wearing a pair of athletic shoes when actually you’ll be wearing a pair of heels, or you wear a bulky sweater when having a sport coat fitted when actually you’ll be wearing a dress shirt.
Do I need an appointment?
Since our business is drop in, appointments are only required for brides.
Do my clothes have to be cleaned first?
This question has a 2-part answer:
All previously worn items must be cleaned (laundered or dry cleaned, per manufacturers instructions) prior to being altered or repaired, including items covered with pet hair or odors such as cigarette smoke. This policy is to protect other customer’s merchandise, our staff and equipment.
Jeans or other pants (to be hemmed) are recommended to be cleaned prior to alterations if made from natural fabrics such as cotton, linen or wool to eliminate the shrinkage before hemming. We wouldn’t want you to be disappointed if your pants shrink after alterations, resulting in pants that are too short for you to wear.
