Q: How can I get in touch with arthur and Lucca?

A: The best way to reach us is through our general contact form, which can be found here.

Q: Why do you require appointments?

A: Appointments are important for us to ensure that you are not waiting in line to be fit or to move through the pickup/try-on process, this is one of the key ways we are different from most tailor/alteration shops. You’ll meet with a professional fitter to walk through everything and answer any questions you have, without appointments we would likely see 45 minute waits during peak times on certain days.

Q: What if none of the times available on a day I want to come in work for me? 

A: Unfortunately, once a time is fully booked in our calendar, we’re typically unable to accept additional appointments. Our scheduling system is updated constantly and always reflects the accurate current availability, you can always check back later, but unfortunately if you do not see a time you are looking for then it is currently unavailable. 

Q: Can I walk in or are you by appointment only?

A: We do accommodate walk in’s when we can based on our availability but we highly prefer and recommend that you book appointments in advance to ensure a member of our fitting team is available and that we’re able to accommodate your garments..

Q: How do I confirm my appointment was scheduled? 

A: When you first schedule your appointment, you will need to enter an email address, A confirmation email will be sent to this address that reiterates the time and day you selected and also includes information on how many garments you will be bringing in. if you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder and then react out to us via our contact page.

Q: How do I schedule a pickup appointment or a 2nd fitting if my garments needs additional alterations?

A: An email will be sent to you from our team with a link that can be used to schedule both a pickup and a 2nd fitting. If you haven’t received a pickup appointment or 2nd fitting email from our team but you believe your items should be complete, please reach out to us via our contact page.

Q: What If I want to schedule an appointment time that I don’t see on your website?

A: We offer as many options for appointments as possible, however if you don’t see a time as available on our website then it is not an option. We ask that you respect the availability shown and do not walk-in to see if we can squeze you in, we may simply just be closed at that time as well and would never want you to waste your time. Offenders of our scheduling and appointment process may be denied appointments in the future.

Q: Are there alterations you cannot do or things you won’t work on?

A: While we wish we could accept all garment types, we’re currently not able to work on the following: costumes, fur, suede, leather, underwear, bathing suits, household items, drapery/upholstery, jerseys or patching/mending items.

Q: Do you offer dry-cleaning/pressing services?

A: No.
