Avoid avoid avoid – If I could give no stars, I would.

After reasonable reviews, I had one bad experience and though it must be a fluke. It wasn't.

Run don't walk away from this tailor! I've had my pants tailored for 20 years and have never had these troubles. The seams are messy with threads everywhere. There were gaps in the stitching in one hem and gathers in another! I actually had a seam completely unravel on me after 4 hours of wear -- the hem and 6 inches of the low inseam with it! In the middle of the work day! And she had the nerve to say that it was unrelated to her hem and that it was the sewing on the $200 dollar slack that I have purchased for years and never had troubles with!

Avoid at all costs – Avoid this place unless you want your clothes ruined. The chinese lady who is there the most does nto speeak english and will never understand what you want. After 2 tries --and 2 ruined pair of pants -- I do not go there any longer. I would avoid this place unless you like buying new clothes after the tailor screws them up

Nice people but awful tailoring – It's absurd that this made it to "BOC" - avoid this place at all costs - this guy sewed the wrong arms to my shirt - i.e., the left to the right and vice versa so the buttons on the sleeves were facing inwards instead of outwards. Shirts weren't ready on time, carelessly finished the shirt that they had left to do - threads were all over all my shirts and they used the wrong color thread on a blue shirt. The place itself is a dump - there's no place to hang the clothes you're taking off in the changing rooms!!!! High prices too. Avoid this place at all costs.
