North Americans as a whole need to embrace having clothes altered to their body. I hear it all the time: why do the Europeans always look so good? They have a relationship with their tailor and spend the time to make their clothes look their best.

It's a well-kept secret of stylists everywhere: a customized off-the-rack piece of clothing always looks better than an expensive designer outfit that fits poorly. Additionally, custom tailoring is also a great way for those who fall on either end of standard sizes to access more brands, styles, and cuts of clothing.

If you’re looking for a men’s “tailor” in Salt Lake City but want the convenience of our locations, hours, and delivery services, look no further than Red Hanger. Besides expert dry cleaning, pressing, and laundry services, we also offer alterations--and for a good reason! When looking your sharpest counts, ensuring proper fit can make an enormous difference.​

so, is custom tailoring really worth it?

Custom Suits to Look Good SLC

Getting custom alterations for your suit or other garment can make a surprisingly large difference in the look and feel of your clothing. Getting slight alterations can flatter your body, re-style investment pieces that may look a little old-fashioned, or make off-the-rack purchases look more elegant. This last point is especially important if it's your first big job interview or other important event and you're not able to shell out for an expensive suit.

One final point: if your body has changed over the years, getting help from a tailor can also allow you to continue wearing expensive pieces that you might otherwise put in the donation pile. Speaking of saving money, have you ever passed by a piece that you love, is on sale, and “almost fits” but not quite? Don’t give up, get it altered!

The take-away:  A few well-placed alterations are surprisingly affordable and can make you look “like a million bucks” even if you had to buy it off the sale rack. Curious what we can do for you?
