We’re positive that with their 30 years of experience, Magic Tailor already rings a bell whenever you hear its name. In fact, it’s considered one of the most renowned tailors in Toronto, offering full tailoring services to its patrons.

Let’s get to know the shop one-by-one first starting off with the services it offers. As mentioned, it’s a full tailoring shop so they can do basic alterations on various garments, particularly with suits and dresses.

To achieve a high level of craftsmanship, we found that the shop connects and communicates with clients well. According to the past customers we’ve surveyed, the store is quite particular with measurements as well as extra requests.

The good news is that this quality of work doesn’t compromise on speed and cost of service. In general, clients can expect a good suit done within a week and the costs are often favorable depending on the alterations.

There are a few instances though where the costs were pricier than expected with small inconsistencies in quality. Actually, they do struggle a bit with more complex alterations as a handful of past clients reported.

Knowing how popular this place is, there is a slight chance of delay (although we haven’t found any of the sorts). But overall, if it’s speed, experience, and affordability you’re looking for, we see them as a great choice.

Pros

  • 30 years of experience
  • Offers full tailoring services
  • Fast turnaround times
  • Favorable pricing
  • Specializes in suits and dresses

Cons

  • Issues with complicated alterations
  • Certain fixes are pricier

Customer Reviews

Quick and reasonably priced 

Amazing, friendly, quick service! I dropped off a dress that needed to be shortened on Tuesday and it was ready on Friday. Was perfect length and reasonably priced for the job, especially since it was rushed. 10/10 recommendation. – Lynn Jean

Exceptional service

I visited the shop during the summer for some suits, coats and trousers, leather jacket shoulder alterations, due to weight loss. The service was exceptional and the clothes had the perfect fit. I totally recommend it! – Sebestina Sabay

Tailoring is, of course, a very personal experience – much like producing a unique wearable art fitted to your needs. If you have the same perspective when it comes to custom designs, we think you’ll enjoy Silhouette Tailoring.

The shop is among our top choices when it comes to high-end tailoring with a solid experience of 10 years. This naturally means that the costs are higher, but in relation to the final product, it’s well within the reasonable range.

If you only need small alterations and sewing projects, they can also accommodate your request. The even better part, in our opinion, is that no appointments are necessary – just casually drop by in case you’re in urgent need.

In addition to these services, the shop also offers ready-to-wear clothes in their respectable collection. Clients can also have the measurements altered in case they’re interested in any piece they wish to buy.

As far as turnaround times are concerned, they’re not exceptionally fast but they’re not prone to delays either. They keep you updated with the process and you can naturally expect the product at the agreed date.

The only drawback we found was the minor mistakes they make in alterations (which isn’t a persisting problem, by the way). Fortunately, we found that these errors were remedied immediately and the customers went home happy. 

Pros

  • Specializes in high-end tailoring servings
  • No appointments necessary (for small projects)
  • One-on-one appointments available for fashion consultations
  • Ready-to-wear clothes available
  • Reasonable prices

Cons

  • Issues of minor alteration mistakes

Customer Reviews

Top-notch craftsmanship

I can’t say enough about the great work Nasir did, taking in the waist of my leather biker pants by 2 1/2″ and hemming the inseam. Absolutely top-notch craftsmanship, extremely knowledgeable and super-friendly to boot! Highly recommend you take your tailoring needs to Nasir! – Nelson Cross

Highly-skilled tailor

Great service from start to finish. Completely saved a dress I had custom made that was terribly tailored, just in time for a wedding! Friendly, professional and highly skilled. Definitely recommend. – Meg Lizabet

If you’re looking for a shop that does the best alterations in town, we highly recommend Studio Kim. Miss Kim herself, as per the reviews, is a delight to work with and is someone you can trust for the business.

Before anything else, the shop operates via appointment bookings only that is why it is important to make sure you call them to schedule your visit in the first place. This also includes all drop-offs and pick-ups.

When it comes to its service, the shop is a friendly environment one and you can surely trust them with your appointments. Whether it is for tailoring service or alterations, it’s safe to expect to get the best quality in a timely manner.

Just to give you a taste of their service, we found out that a client before experienced a slight dissatisfaction with their work and the shop readily and quickly rectified the situation. This is how we can say that the dedication the shop has to its clients is spot on.

Moreover, in Studio Kim, one thing is for sure, and that is its respectable turnaround. The clients can expect to have their altered dress or suits in the next 2 to 3 business days (that is if the business is in smooth scheduling). And if anything happens, the staff will update the customer to settle the situation.

Surely, the greatest attribute this kind of business is expected to have is a consistent service, and so far, that is what Studio Kim is known for. The only thing we worry about is the people not being aware of this low-key tailor in town.

Pros

  • Expert in alterations for any type of clothing
  • Friendly and accommodating environment
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Fast turnaround times
  • Remedies errors fast

Cons

  • Operates via appointment booking only (no walk-ins)

Customer Reviews

Best alterations in downtown

One of the best spots in downtown for alterations! Kim and her team are super helpful, attentive and always offer suggestions or solutions. I’ve been going to her for years, from everything to getting a complete suit tailored, to tightening up a retro jersey, to fixing tears. You won’t be disappointed! – Graeme Mathieson

High-level quality of work

This wonderful woman altered a dress for me that was too big and sleeveless. She made it into the most perfectly fitting dress with long sleeves. She has also helped me update a vintage winter jacket so it looks contemporary. It is one of my favourite pieces now. It very reasonably priced for the high level of quality and care she puts into her work. – Shannon Armishaw

Royal Custom Tailor is another outstanding option when it comes to alterations and tailoring services in general. Let’s get through some of the highlights of their services to see if they’re worth your time and money.

For starters, they specialize in made-to-measure garments, particularly in men’s ready-to-wear suits. In fact, this is one, if not, the most sought-after service in the shop, earning many loyal patrons over the years.

The fitting and consultation were also a hassle-free process according to the past customers we’ve surveyed. So far, there aren’t any complaints of ill-fitting suits which we take as a good sign of consistency in service.

In addition, the shop is also adequately experienced in alterations for sweaters, down jackets, and outerwear. They can also alter other types of garments but these three are among their top specialties at the moment.

When it comes to price, their rates do fall within the city’s average so we have no qualms with that. To top it all up, their turnaround times are pretty fast too as you can expect a suit in a week or even less.

The only issue that we have is that they do tend to miss a bit when it comes to other types of clothing, jerseys, for example. But for suits and other garments they specialize in, we think they do a spectacular job.

Pros

  • Specializes in made-to-measure garments
  • Hassle-free fitting and consultation
  • Great customer service
  • Experts in alterations for sweaters, down jackets, and outerwear
  • Reasonable prices
  • Turnaround time of within a week

Cons

  • Issues with other types of garments

Customer Reviews

An impressive tailor

For many years, I have been using Mr. Soltani’s services,  from simple to major alterations and shirt making.  For a number of decades prior to finding Royal Custom Tailors, I had tried various others for similar services, but no one has had the talents of Mr Soltani.  A very impressive tailor! – Brian Friedman

Efficient and professional

I highly recommend Soltani to anyone looking for their new tailor. He fixed my suit after my former tailor ruined it, in a very efficient time, and at a fair and frankly low price based on his years of experience. He is professional, kind, and conscientious. You will be grateful to have found him. – Elan Shemtov

If you need tailor services for a once-in-a-lifetime occasion (say, your wedding), we think 3rd Floor Tailors is an exciting choice. Specializing in wedding gowns and evening dresses, you might find some top-quality services here.

The fitting and consultation process itself is just as good as anyone can imagine. The place does scream very posh, giving a more exclusive feeling to the client and the overall journey to making the dress.

If your concerns are only for standard clothes alterations, then they can also accommodate your needs. According to its past clients, they’ve done remodeling of vintage pieces as well as avant-garde alterations among others.

The only downside though is that this level of service and craftsmanship comes at a price -and kind of a high one at that. To make up for this, their services are relatively fast, always beating the deadlines for the final output.

We’d also like to note how much we love the customer service in this place. Everyone is welcoming and it’s easy to set appointments at one’s most convenient times without breaking a sweat.

Overall, we think it’s a wonderful choice for clothes made for special occasions (for both men and women too!). Customer service is exceptional and it’s easy to get along with everyone if that’s a concern for you.

Pros

  • Specializes in wedding gowns and evening dresses
  • Offers basic to complex alteration services
  • Able to remodel vintage clothing pieces
  • Has experience with costumes and avant-garde alterations
  • Fast turnaround times
  • Great customer service

Cons

  • Service can be expensive
