Even the highest quality apparel may require adjustments to provide the perfect appearance, and perfectly fitting garments are not always available off the rack. Cleveland has numerous tailors to fill individual alteration needs. For women, services can include hemming pants, jeans, skirts or dresses to the desired length. Men’s suit jackets may sometimes require adjustments in the sleeves, and fine clothing can be taken in for an appropriate fit after weight loss for men and women.

While some tailors do specialize in menswear, many are available for any type of alterations or custom garment making. Tailors may be associated with dry cleaning businesses or solo operations where dress or shirt making services may also be provided. Many finer department stores do offer alteration services as well, which may be performed in the store or sent to a separate tailoring center. Here are some of the best local tailors Cleveland has to offer.
