Customer Satisfaction is our Goal

Salah definitely knows what he is doing. Went to him for pants length adjustment and it only took him 15 mins to get it done, super quick turn around time. Very impressed, best tailor in Lancaster Pa. See for yourself!

Mr. Khilo relined a vintage jacket for me. I was a bit particular and wanted the same lining (Bemberg) that was used when the jacket was made. He didn’t have it in the shop, so he took the time to find it online, got my approval, and ordered it just for my project. The jacket is amazing, it looks brand new. Will definitely be giving him my business in the future.
