Before hem and taper pant Alteration
- Charles PAn excellent tailor, not just a good tailor. Finally, after 25 years living and working in Albuquerque, I found a fantastic tailor. His work is superb, his prices are better than reasonable (telling you up front the cost), and his turnaround time is first-rate. He can do anything I ask. Of course, he can hem and mend. He can also put pockets in faculty-regalia gown. He can transform my regular-fit dress shirt into a Milano/slim-fit shirts, saving me about $100 for a shirt that actually fits me. Although I've never done this, he also makes custom pairs of jeans (either by taking your measurements or duplicating the fit of a jean you own and love). And he's friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. This one-person operation is a business we should all support to keep him here in town.
- Jabez LDom is an absolute sartorial treasure in this city that seemingly doesn't care much about men's style and fashion. Ever since I started living here, I have been in search of a tailor that could 1.) listen to what I want, 2.) give great advice and 3.) charge honest prices. Dom hits all the criteria for me. He has been in the game for a long time as he is a tailor's son and has worked for different clothiers in his career. Personally, I have had 6 pants from jeans, chinos to trousers worked on at Adal Yay. Dom is a good communicator and will help explain what he's seeing and what he's trying to do based on your preferences. When some of the pants we worked on didn't fit as well as I wanted, he was very quick to make adjustments on the same day. In the future, I will get more stuff done. Once you enter his unassuming studio, you'll hear the whir of the sewing machine as Dom is always working on a project. The overall vibe of the shop is warm and welcoming for those who love clothes...
- Andrew HGreat price, solid repair job.
