Repairs to Knitwear

It is widely known that we repair suits, trousers, jackets, coats and skirts but some peopleare not aware that we can also effect near perfect repairs on knitted garments, regularly repairing moth damage in favourite cashmere sweaters, etc. The damages are carefully re-knitted by hand making the previous blemish virtually undetectable.

 

 

 

 

 

Clothing Alterations by Experts

Minor and complex repairs and alterations to your clothing carried out by experts.

We offer a complete alteration service from shortening and lengthening, right  through to slimming down items.There is not much when it comes to clothing alterations that we cannot or will not do.

 

Within our premises at Thayer Street, we have a dedicated fitting room where customers may try items of clothing and have them pinned and professionally fitted prior to alteration.  This facility is not one that is commonly found in most dry cleaners and is incredibly popular with our clientele, many of whom are regular visitors not wishing to entrust the alteration of their clothes to any other.

A more recent addition to our portfolio of services is the re-introduction of our gents made to measure service. It could be described as going back to our roots and is proving to be most popular with some of our clients who prefer to pick their own cloth and get suits and jackets made to their exact specification and fit.

 

Our team of experienced staff are always on hand to provide expert advice and help and we look forward to being of service into the next century.
