Exemplary Work and Service – When I was younger, I relied on my talented mother and grandmother to make or, at the very least, alter everything I wore. As an adult, I've taken to wearing heels so I don't have to hem my pants. As I prepared to act as a bridesmaid for the first time, I knew my mom wouldn't have time to tackle a big project, and I decided I should find a good tailor.
Best Fit exceeded my expectations. The shop was easy to find, and the dressing room I used was very clean and spacious. More importantly, the women who worked with me were very kind, but also honest, and their work was excellent. They fitted a relatively sack-like rehearsal dinner dress into something more flattering and shapely, and when they were done with the bridesmaid dress, it looked as though it had been made just for me.
Now that I know about Best Fit, I may start wearing flats.
BEST TAILOR – I found Best Fit, Inc. tailoring on Internet.
I brought my snowmobile leather suit to them for repair.
This suit had a very bad rip I doubted it was fixable.
Best Fit not only repaired it fast, but I could barely see the repair.
The suit is from very heavy leather with many different colors in it.
The work done by Best Fit is far better than I could have expected.
The staff was nice and friendly. I will certainly come back again.
I recommend this place if you live in the Back Bay area. – I don't recommend Best Fit, Inc. They are really pricey and they do a sloppy job. asked them to alter a bridesmaid dress for me once and they did it in 3 days. My complaint was that even though I asked her to take it in some more because I felt that it was still too loose (it was strapless and kept falling too low), the seamstress disagreed with me. When I got to the wedding 4 days later, the bride insisted that it was too low and I had to have it pinned. And I checked the scale. I didn't loose any weight. If they would have taken the dress in more like I requested, I wouldn't of had that problem. I also asked them to hem jeans that had a tan stitching. They hemmed the pants with black stitching. I don't sew but I know that you try to match the stitching.
User review by apes – they fixed my bridesmaid dress in 3 days. they are pricy, but definitely worth every penny because they were prompt, there were no hidden costs and they did a great job -- the dress fit great!
Great Place! – I was very happy with Best Fit. I needed my wedding dress altered and they did a great job. At first, I was quoted 400$ of alterations and I decided it wasn't worth it. A day later I recieved a call from Best Fit, saying they would cut extra 100 $ if I decided to come back. I would recommend it to anyone. Very nice service!
Not Recommended – I brought a pair of designer jeans to be hemmed here, thinking this would be the best place to go. They hemmed them way too short and when I told them this, the woman actually said to me "Well, maybe you gained weight!" Rude, Rude, Rude.
Miracle Workers – I was in a wedding in October where the bride bought the bridesmaid dresses off the rack at a clearance department store. It was a great bargain but 2 sizes too small. The women at Best Fit were very straightforward with what could be done and what couldn't. These aren't women who will tell you what you want to hear--they want your clothes to look the best on you that they can. These women basically reconstructed this dress for me within a week and a half. It was kind of pricey, but exactly what they quoted me up front. I will definitely bring my business here again.
Excellent tailoring – The women at Best Fit did a terrific job altering my wedding gown--it fit perfectly when they were done, and they charged me a fraction of the price quoted by several area bridal salons.
A few tips. Best Fit is not a casual, just-drop-in-after-work kind of place--you'll need an appointment. If you're having pants or a formal dress altered, be sure to bring your OWN shoes with you so that they can hem it to the right length. And be willing to listen to their suggestions. These ladies want the clothing to flatter your figure while still allowing you to move, and they will try to talk you out of going too short or too tight.
Horrible experience, will never go back – I dropped off 4 items to this tailor. 2 items were altered just fine but the other 2 did not fit well at all. After complaining to the lady she was incredibly rude and unwilling to take the 2 items back to correct the problem. I went to another tailor down the street to fix the problem. I don't know how this store wins the best of boston award! Don't go to this store. The staff is rude and can not meet customers requests!!
