We are closing our retail alterations department. Going forward, alteration services are only offered to clients of Top Shelf custom products. This is a change from the past. We are also no longer able to accept women’s alterations.
We can recommend three different tailoring shops for competent tailoring owned by women we have known for decades and do good work.
Irina’s Stitch in Time specialized in dressmaking and alterations.The owners name is Irina Boiar. She is a very experienced Russian trained seamstress, capable of doing almost anything that is humanly possible, and is also a sparking personality to deal with. She is located almost directly across the street from Top Shelf. Her address is: 3021 Lyndale Ave S., Mpls, MN 55408 /612-822-4744
Tailors on Blake is run by Sharon Terry, who is an alumni of Top Shelf, trained at one of the best tailoring schools in the state, and has owned Tailors on Blake for 30 years. Besides specializing in alterations, she also does monogramming.
Her address is: 5706 W. 36th St., St.Louis Park, MN 55406 /952-933-6585
Sew Biz is another good alternative for tailoring services that accepts women’s alterations. Owned by Laurine Lewis, another Top Shelf alum, she has been in business since 1983, does high quality work and has recently moved to a new location at 706 2nd Ave S, Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis 55402 / 612-332-6364
Top Shelf’s clientele has come to expect our help in coordinating and integrating high quality neckwear with the beautiful custom suits and shirts we create. Despite our small size, we have developed an almost cult-like following for our distinctive tie lines, which often fly in the face of mass-market department style offerings.
We are very proud of our representation of the limited edition concepts of the following:
Neckwear, Hosiery, Shoes, Belts, Cufflinks, Watches, Formal Wear Accessories, Magnetic Collar Stays, Suit and Pant Hangers
Zegna, Holland and Sherry, Dormeuil, Leonard of Paris
Sweaters by Lorenzoni and Piacenzo.
We carry a unique collection of cashmere and wool sweaters in varying plys, from 4 ply cashmere donegals, to resort color single-ply waterproof cashmeres. We have sweatshirt styled cashmeres, full length zip fronts, and a range of resort cotton sweaters by Piacenzo, as well as silk and cotton blends from Tulliani.
