Bespoke Suiting & Styling
Glenwood South Tailors & Alterations is the Triangle’s premier mobile alterations boutique. Our concierge clothing services, including bespoke suiting and personal styling, bring Savile Row to your front door. If you’ve ever had clothing altered for a wedding or special event and instantly felt more confident—more fabulous—you’ve experienced the million-dollar-power of blending style and substance. But why should you only feel this way once or twice a year?
At GSTA, we are on a mission to bring the European clothing experience to the Triangle. In Europe, style and substance go hand-in-hand. Bankers in London do not wear fussy ties, they wear elegant ties. Italian suits aren’t “tight,” they are well cut. And the French love to wear regal suits, not boring suits. Borrowing tried and true methods from some of the best clothiers in the world, we create one-of-a-kind garments for both men and women. So, our clients don’t simply wear their clothes, they own their looks.
With dedication to extraordinary customer service and exquisite craftsmanship, GSTA has perfected the art of style and convenience. And now with additional offerings of custom suiting and personal styling through Heng’s Suiting & Armoury, Glenwood South Tailors & Alterations is your end-to-end stylist, tailor, and clothier.
Brian Burnett founded Glenwood South Tailors & Alterations after realizing retail customers wanted more than off-the-rack suits. While working as a sales leader at Nordstrom’s, Brian had his “light-
-bulb” moment. Customers who were dissatisfied with the fittings done by the in-store “tailor” began turning to him for styling advice. What these buyers were hungry for was a tailor and stylist in one. So Brian set out to fill this gap in the market.
He visited London’s Savile Row and traveled throughout the U.K. Soaking up knowledge like a sponge, he swung through dazzling cities like Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam, Rome, and Antwerp. The result was an instant love affair with the personalized, yet subtle nature of tailoring in the timeless European and sartorial style.
Upon returning from his whirlwind trip, Brian entered the tech world where he studied the “backstage” elements of his craft. Refusing to succumb to the casual, non-dress atmosphere, however, Brian continued to hone his personal style and brand. His brief stint in the software industry also reinforced just how much Brian loathed going to the mall or run-of-the-mill seamstress shops to get his clothing altered. From these seeds, sprouted Glenwood South Tailors & Alterations.
