Tailor. Swift.

Alterations from the back room at Edo Popken


Clothes make the man, but only if they don't swallow him up first.

Because a dude's duds should fit properly.

Whether it's a business suit from the now
Zimmer-less Men's Wearhouse or a pair of clearance jeans from a mall store, proper tailoring can elevate loose-fitting budget duds to tight-looking bespoke fashion.

The Tailor Shop Dallas is about to make those alterations all the more actionable.

Sure, there are other tailors in town, but Orlando Morales has tailoring pedigree. In the biz for 28 years, most recently at the now-closed Barneys New York at NorthPark Center, he's now doing alterations from a fully set up shop at the back of menswear boutique
Edo Popken.

Pant hems can be done while you wait for only $12. Shirt sleeve shortening, $20. (And alterations are free on anything purchased from the store.) Better still, for a little extra, he can come directly to you for fittings and deliveries of finished apparel.

It's the kind of nip/tuck that won't cost you thousands.

And in this post-Zimmer world, we, ahem, guarantee it.
