If we are altering garments that are not new, to please wash/dry-clean (please refer to the recommendations on the specific garment's care tags) the items before bringing them in to get altered. This is a courtesy to our Tailors. If a garment is soiled, we may request that you have it cleaned before we alter it for you.
If you can, it is always best to have a pair of shoes with you, which you intend to wear with your suit/pants. Normally this is not a necessity, but with the current fashion trend of wearing narrow pants that require minimal break, wearing appropriate footwear helps to determine where you would like to see your hemline.
