One of our customers mentioned that he had an expensive dress shirt that was not fitting the same as when he bought it. He asked if dress shirts can be altered.
The answer is yes! Our tailors alter dress shirts to look like they were custom designed. Alterations save time and money, and keep you looking your best. Keep in mind that even though you wear a specific size, every body is unique and garment manufacturers design and produce clothing differently. As a result, new shirts don’t always fit perfectly. Altering a dress shirt gives you custom fit that is comfortable and stylish.

Here are a few of the alterations our tailors can make for you:
