Over the life of a suit, normal wear and tear create the need for refurbishment. Many customers will also need to have the sizes adjusted competently. Top Shelf’s workroom has an established reputation as the best quality tailor shop in the Twin Cities. This is one of the ways we differentiate ourselves from the growing legions of “direct sellers” in the custom clothing business, who sell primarily in office settings. At the core, we are still tailors. In addition to our own suits, we work with other great suits of the world, including Brioni, Kiton, Oxxford, Canali, Hickey Freeman and others.
To come prepared for a good alteration experience, we ask that you wear appropriate clothing to be fitted, like a typical dress shirt, preferably long sleeves. It is very important to be bring shoes very close to what you want to wear with the garment. And it is also much appreciated that the articles you bring in to be worked on be cleaned, especially pants having more than just the hem done. Your alterations will take much longer, and a lot more work is created for us if we have to fit you and then send your clothing to be cleaned before we can put it in the workroom. If there is concern about the cost of a job, please ask for an estimate before we get going.
Remember-Please bring clothing clean for alteration, and bring the shoes you will be wearing to eliminate guesswork and costly mistakes.
