Sometimes you buy an article of clothing because you love it and have to have it. Upon getting it home and trying it on in the privacy of your own bedroom, you realize the pants are a little long, or the suit jacket doesn’t fit as perfectly as you remembered it fitting in the dressing room. Other times zippers break, the holiday season isn’t as kind to your waistline as you had hoped or you discover a seemingly irreparable tear in your favorite jeans. During fashion emergencies such as these, it’s very important to have a trusted tailor for all of your clothing alteration and repair needs. The following list includes our favorite tailors across the Sacramento region.
