Gregory's Fine Tailoring is by far the
absolute best tailoring service in Boston. Being the procrastinator I am, I went shopping for a dress Thursday during the day that I needed to wear for a formal event Friday night. I found a dress I loved, but of course it was the only one left of that style in the entire store. I tried it on and the fit was completely off, but I decided to buy it anyways. I desperately called every tailor in Boston trying to get someone who would let me drop it off Thursday night, do the alterations I needed, and have it ready to be picked up Friday evening before my event. NO ONE would do it for me!
I found Gregory's Fine Tailoring from other reviews and decided to give him a call. He picked up, I explained the situation and even though he was supposed to close at 7 pm and this phone call took place at 5:30 pm, he told me to bring the dress to his shop. I frantically brought the dress to his store, and of course there was a line of people when I got there. I was panicking but when Greg greeted me he was kind and calm. I told him my dilemma (it was now 6:30) and he kindly offered to do the alterations I needed on the spot! Let me just say, he completely transformed by dress. The dress went from being a last minute attempt to look presentable at a formal event, to a dress in which I spent the entire night getting showered with compliments. He is a truly a wonderful person and he knows his craftsmanship to the T, I will now be bringing every item I ever need altered to Gregory and you all should do the same!!
I brought a pair of pants in to be hemmed and he was able to hem the pants while I waited. Jos A Bank was told me the same service would take at least two weeks. I was really impressed with the quality and timeliness.
Work on my jacket, which I was told would be finished in two weeks, was not done over three months later, and in fact was never fully done. I was never called about the status of the work. I was lied to several times about when the work would be finished. I demanded the return of my jacket twice in person and was refused each time. In the end, I was able to get my jacket back only by threatening to sue for triple damages, at which point Gregory finally returned my jacket; to his credit, he refunded my deposit in full and actually did some of the requested work, albeit with mediocre quality.

Gregory's Tailoring in Boston.
Gregory is a unique tailor and a gift to the Boston community. I have not been able to get business shirts to fit comfortably because of my 19.5 inch neck and average build. Even 2 previous custom shirt makers could not get it right.
The third time is a charm. Gregory loves his trade and it shows as he met the challenge and i am comfortable wearing a tie for the first time.
