Need clothing made, altered or hemmed? Los Gatos has a fabulous, long time resource right here in town, Designer’s Tailoring. Tucked away in a little building across the street from Safeway, it could be easy to miss. Thuan Ho Dang, the seamstress (or tailor), does superb work. She and her husband, Tho, have been in business here since 1985.
I was introduced to Designer’s Tailoring by a friend of mine in the early 90s, and have been a happy, loyal customer ever since. I spoke with Thuan about their business and she told me:
“We don’t advertise, everything is word of mouth.” Enthusiastic customers refer them consistently, and I believe it, because I’ve referred people to them too. They are pleasant, do good work and prices are more than fair.
Friendly, low key and welcoming, the owners are careful business people. A few years back they moved from one suite to another adjacent one in the same building – the current spot is more interior and a little less visible, for better pricing in the same building. Their planning helps to keep prices down, something all customers appreciate.
Designer’s Tailoring provides custom made drapes, clothing, alterations and more at very reasonable prices and with friendly, knowledgeable service. On a scale of 1 to 10, it gets a solid “10” in my book.
