Worst tailoring I have ever experienced! – I recently lost 30 lbs. and brought my custom made suits to Well Suited with the idea of selling them on consignment. The tailor there said that he could take in my suits to make them fit me. Not only do they not fit me, the quality of the workmanship is so poor that I would be embarrased to wear them. They are now ruined. He hemmed the sleeves by simply turning them under and stitching them so that now the fabric is 4 layers thick and you can even see some of the stitching through the sleeve. Not only that but the lining is so long that it hangs down below the sleeve. One of the pair of pants wasn't even sewn up in the crotch when picked up. Just a gaping hole there. No explanation or apology. The suits were not pressed either. How did he get voted "best tailor"? This is beyond me!!!
Great for Women Seeking Men's Suits – I'm a woman who feels more comfortable in men's formalwear, but the process of buying men's formalwear has always been very uncomfortable. The sales guys at department stores just direct me to the women's section and won't help me find things that fit.
Problem solved! The guys at Well Suited are the most helpful, professional, friendly salespeople I have ever met. They made shopping for my suit downright fun, and had lots of great tips, even suggesting tie-shirt combos to go with my new suit. (I've certainly never gotten that level of acceptance at the mall!) They had suits in my size, too -- I'm small for menswear. They clearly have experience fitting men's suits for women, too, and tailored mine perfectly to fit my body without producing the curvier look of most women's suits.
Bottom line: If you're a female bodied person looking for a men's suit, this is THE place to go.

This place is awesome! – I always find great deals here, and they're the same designers I would probably have bought new. Correction, I probably wouldn't have bought them new because of the price. This store actually puts those things in my price range. If only for that I like to come check out the shop a few times a season because you never know what someones going to bring in.
Great Place – This was my very first time buying a suit and i couldn't be happier with my experience. These guys are pros! I had no idea what I needed, but they helped my find a really sharp suit that fit really well. The shop looks great and the prices are pretty amazing.
Amazing!!! – As a woman it is very hard to find a nice men's suit. I realize not a lot of women are looking for such formal wear, but I was looking all over Portland to no avail. Everywhere I went I was either completely ignored or sneered at upon walking in. When I walked into Well Suited I was immediately helped and treated with respect. I now have a beautiful pin-striped suit that is being tailored to my measurements. Thank you Well Suited! I couldn't be happier.
Great clothes, hit-or-miss tailoring – I'm always impressed by the selection of clothes here, but I just took in some clothes for tailoring and found the quality of the work varied greatly. I had the sleeves of one of my husband's jackets shortened, and that was done very well and for a reasonable price. However, I was getting a pair of pants hemmed up, and it was clearly done as a rush job--there were gaps in the stitching. I'll grant them that the fabric is difficult to work with--it's beyond my skill set with a machine--but that's why I took it to a professional.
dress beyond your budget – If you are fashion savvy, yet budget conscious, you should definately check out Well Suited. Eclectic, funky and professional; you can dress well beyond your budget. If you find something you like but the fit is not quite right, you can have it fit like it was made for you right there, by the same person every time.
Larry and Henry will take care of you. The inventory is ever-revolving and always like new and very high end. I really can't say enough about it. Go see for yourself...
Not Just For Men! – Ladies, don't pass by just because you see only men's suits in the window!
I adore these guys! I am a woman and have been taking my clothes to Larry for tailoring for years. He has transformed both my casual and my business wardrobe into something worthy of praise, and I am so grateful to have found this place. Henry and Larry have a lovely shop and are always so sweet to me. Larry does such beautiful work and I pray that he never leaves Portland.
You know how the TV fashion gurus always say "Find a good tailor"? This is my secret - THANKS, WELL SUITED!
Best staff anywhere – My husband is resistant to most anything to do with clothes. So, the thought of taking him suit hunting was excruciating! What a treasure to find Well Suited and the amazing staff there. I dropped him off and went across the street for a glass of wine. 30 minutes later I came back to a very happy scene - my husband in the most beautiful Italian suit actually laughing and surrounded by a wonderfully pleasant tailor. It's now his new favorite place and he's looking pretty darn good with a wardrobe of new pants,dress shirts, Tommy Bahamas, a pair of shoes, even a great jacket. I've started going with him to pick up clothes for our newly employed son. The selection is incredible. I've never gone in and not found something terrific!
Impressive selection of sylish mens clothing, extremely knowledgeable staff, cool shopping experience – I can't believe the prices you pay these days for quality mens clothing! I also hate the generic "we don't really care about our customers" attitude you sometimes encounter when shopping in some stores. Also, don''t get me started on how a guy can be treated by some store clerks when he's trying to find something that he looks good in, and would like to wear. But, there are some places who really do care how a guy dresses, and tries to help him find what he's looking for. Well Suited has one of the most impressive selections of "very individual" geared clothing I've ever encountered. The selection is really "hand picked", meaning you would never have to worry about bumping into two other guys on the street wearing the same shirt! Example: I found a pair (in my size) of Faconnable jeans at an unbelievable price that I almost didn't want to mention (in case another pair comes in) so when it was time to get some nice dress clothes, I came back for a suit. We're talking a very nice suit that is SO comfortable. These guys know their suits (and yes, the prices are some of the best I've found) and are really helpful. Also, the tailoring was perfect, and on time. In short: a great (and still kind of a secret) shopping experience!
