Since I need to keep my post short and sweet this week due to a significant time commitment unrelated to my job, I decided I’d like to highlight another local business. So what happens when you start to lose weight and find yourself in need of new clothing? One recommendation I give my patients is to find a quality second hand store and purchase what I call “transitional clothing”, or clothing to cover the sizes between where you are currently and your goal weight. That way, you can have nice clothing that fits properly but without spending a fortune. It’s not worth it to buy an entirely new wardrobe until you reach your goal weight. But what do you do if one of your beloved items of clothing no longer fits correctly and you want to keep wearing it?
Answer: find a good tailor!
Locally here in Naples we are extremely fortunate to have an amazing tailoring shop. George and Dolly European Tailoring and Alterations is the place to go. Located at 4530 Tamiami Trail North, Suite 6, in Naples 34103, they are open M-F 10am-4pm, and even have Saturday hours from 10am-1pm. The husband and wife team (George and Dolly) and their son Ben are friendly and provide top notch customer service and unparalleled workmanship. I kid you not when I say that these tailors can work miracles. The best part is that if an alteration cannot be done easily or would be too cost prohibitive, they will tell you. Sometimes just replacing an item of clothing is the more economical decision.
I have been a customer here for quite some time and won’t go anywhere else for alterations. I have told many people that Ben is my Sartorial BFF, and indeed he is. So if you’re on your weight loss journey and want to keep some of your favorite pieces of clothing, why not stop by George & Dolly? They do such excellent work that you might find yourself quickly becoming a routine customer for all of your other tailoring needs.
