Mina was extremely helpful to me! She took the weight of the world off my shoulders! I bought my strapless dress from Priscilla of Boston and they recommended her. Beside the fact fact that the dress needed major alterations, I needed a bolero and veil. Amazingly enough, they covered them all. She had a large selections of fabrics and accessories and we were able to find a perfect match beaded lace for my bolero, and perfect veil to go with both my dress and the bolero. The appointment process seemed strange in the beginning, but once I got there, the peace and calm of the studio, as well as the fact that everything went so smoothly all the way to the end, made me wonder why others don't do the same thing! The alterations and custom-designed bolero came out so unbelievably that my mom could not recognized the dress and thought I went behind her back and bought another dress with the bolero!! Mina gave me a waist and I looked two sizes smaller!! For the selections and talents that she has, I must add that they are understated.

I'm reluctant to post my review for Nam's since it is my best-kept secret as a Westsider. I must admit that I only stumbled onto Nam's b/c I used to work downtown. Even though I don't work downtown anymore, I still trek here for the cheapest and fastest alterations. The proprietor is a solemn-looking and equally silent Korean man who is presumably Nam who presides over the place like the concierge at a high-end restaurant deciding who gets served first. I used to leave my alterations there and walk around the wonderful garment district or visit Santee Alley and then come back to pick up my alterations. Unfortunately, Nam does not strictly follow the first come-first served rule of thumb, giving preferential treatment to some of the rougher-looking customers there. Long story short: you have to stay and wait for your alterations - otherwise he'll handle someone else's alterations ahead of yours if you're not visibly there to remind him that you were there first. Overall, great alterations at an unbeatable price.
I love the fact that they are very organized and operate very modernly! No awkward phone calls in the middle of a meeting! I had only one trip to Los Angeles before my wedding; I requested an appointment online and shortly after I received their email. They not only considered my schedule, but they also scheduled me after hours for another fitting during my stay for after they started the alterations. Mina is really perfectionist and cares about your dress more than you do! When I went back, the dress looked perfect to me, but she pointed to a couple tweaks and insisted on them. When I went back to picked up, the dress looked as if it was custom-made for me. She is not cheap, but worth every penny! I am glad that by cutting only $14 from each table, I was able to stay within the budget and get the best alterations possible. I also got my tiara and veil from them, very unique and elegant, didn't see anything like them elsewhere.
You have to try Jenny's alteration. Her work is impeccable. I brought in my kids to get their school uniform fitted. She recommended that I just hem it up but not cut it off since the kids will grow in the next year. I didn't know you could do that and still have the pants look decent. She did a really great job with it. I also brought in a few dresses I bought from Nordstrom. She fitted the dresses for me in the waist perfectly. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. There is street parking right in front so it makes it easy to get in and out. I was pleasantly surprised by her prices. Nordstrom was going to charge me $110 for fitting my dress. Jenny was not even 1/2 that. And the kids uniforms were very affordable. I tried a few other places on Westwood blvd. and they are much pricier than Jenny and their work is not as good. You should definitely give her a try.
for nearly all of my suits (a lot), i've taken them to King Tailor Shop for altering, and i have not been disappointed. again, the keys are that service is top-notch, low-priced, and FAST! discovered KTP by accident nearly 10 years ago. just happened to need a quick clothing alterations and walked into the shop. the clerk said he could have my alterations done the same day - and he was right. most importantly, the alterations were done correctly, so i didnt have to go to another shop after the fact. on top of that, the price was really low relative to what other tailors charge for the same work. highly recommended.
This place is hidden treasure, I'm so fastidious about tailor made suit , because I'm asian and no suits from department store are fit my body. So I just visit this shop last weekend. the master tailor does everything by himself, cutting and fitting and all other jobs. so he could make suits for perfectly fit to my body.I was amazed becuase I know now there are not many people could do it. I am so glad that I found this small shop in K-town. They have best quailty suits!
Gary is the best tailor in town!! He is extremely nice and super friendly! He is a very professional experienced man who's been a tailor for a very long time! I've been going to Gary's for over ten years now, and he has always left me pleased with the work he's done on my clothes! I've never been disappointed. He is also very efficient and has my clothes ready within the same day! I highly recommend Gary to everyone!!
Goldfinger is by far the best skilled tailor in town. There may be cheaper alteration places, but the only place that I would trust with my suits is Goldfinger. And why wouldn't you? They will take care of your expensive suits the way they were meant to be treated. Ditch those 5 dollar alteration places and go to Goldfinger. They do their work right.
i have had a number of items worked on at this establishment....and they do top class work....and reasonably priced too.....they have even done a few little repairs for me...free of charge even though I offered to pay.....I highly recommend this place for any work done on clothes.......
The tailor is fabulous! Great work and wonderful customer service!!! Miguel was a life saver - my friend needed his garment for the next day and they were willing to wait on him to arrive before closing. Reasonably priced and quality work!!! Thanks New York Tailor Shop!
