You've worked hard to achieve the body you desire. Now your clothing should show off that smaller waist line from that new plant based diet or your H.I.T. fitness regimen. Lets now taper those slacks, take in the waist and tailor those dress shirts, shall we?
First of all, Brian is the man. I walked in last week not expecting much of an experience or little interaction at all. My past tailors have been ESL or just too damn old to relate to - which made for an awkward exchange much like visiting distant relatives. With Brian, you can skip the no talk/small talk and carry on an actual, worthwhile conversation (over a drink if you’re so inclined) which made the whole tailoring experience more like dropping into a gentleman’s store. Besides the super service…quality is top notch from shape to stitch. I have a particularly difficult stringbean-type frame to fit but Brian has a keen eye (also a stylist). My pants were trimmed to a T…snug + slim with a perfect half break and the stitch work is superb. I’m stoked with the results and will be back for a full stringbean-slim euro suit 😉
I live and work on W. Johnson Street and Glenwood South Tailors is an excellent addition to the neighborhood. I needed an expensive dress to be hemmed within 4 days to meet a wedding celebration deadline. Brian, the owner, understood the fashion emergency and said he would have it ready before the weekend at a very reasonable price. The very next day he hand delivered my dress to my office, much to my surprise. Now that is exceptional customer service! This tailor shop will be receiving all of my tailoring business.
I've had two really good experiences here within a month. Suit jacket sleeves shortened, two pairs of pants shortened - all looked so much better after the alterations. Brian worked with me and took the time to get things right - lots of attention to detail - sleeve linings sewed back meticulously, buttons moved undetectably. I got patient answers to questions about how things were going to be done and items were ready when promised. Glenwood South costs a little more than some others I've used, but it's worth it to me for a job well done.
