North Miami- Aventura:18000 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura, FL‎ - (305) 935-2746‎

Technically its a dry cleaners, Spotmasters, BUT they have a great tailor. He is the only one that works there and is AMAZING.

I never thought about going to a tailor until I came across the AN blog, and now he is my go-to guy. He's done my pants, my my shirts, and some dresses.

I have never had anything tailored but my pants hemmed!

Does anyone have a recommendation for the West Toronto or Mississauga areas?

I no longer live in the area, but still go to this tailor when in town visiting family (he's just **that** good, and his fees are reasonable):
Kings Custom Tailor
12345 Georgia Ave
Silver Spring, MD
(301) 949-8400


In NY (Manhattan, not Brooklyn):
Ramon Diaz
306 Mott Street
NY, NY
(212) 226-0747

I'm hoping to get a couple of my dresses shortened/pinned back. Like BumbleBEA, I've only ever had my pants hemmed... Any recommendations for either northern Toronto/Markham, or the Waterloo region?
