I've been going to Alfred's for years and he consistently does excellent work. I have had some expensive pieces ruined by tailors at top boutiques, and so now, even when I could have gotten free alterations, I take everything to Alfred. I trust my clothing with him. Alfred has a great eye for what needs to be done to a piece of clothing to make it fit properly and his old-world training is evident in the finished product. He usually nails it perfectly the first time; however, there have also been several times that I have had him re-adjust a piece, and in cases where I feel that I was not clear enough about my preferences, I have paid for the changes. If you work with Alfred, he will work with you. The final result is stellar.
After my tailor retired, I needed a new one and found Nuri's in our Ravenswood neighborhood. They've been in business for decades and they know what they're doing. For almost 15 years, I have had dozens of pants and suits tailored there and have never needed a redo. They've done it right each and every time. And the prices are great too. The free 15 minute parking out front allows for a quick and convenient in and out. Great place.
I've been going to Oscar for a couple of years now. I love for my clothes to fit like a glove especially my blouses and Oscar does excellent work. He is very professional and best of all; he knows what he's doing. I've had so many bad experiences going to these so call Chinese Cleaners. I was certainly blessed to find him. Also his prices are great. So give Oscar a try, you will not be sorry.
