Not that we encourage any hoarder-like behavior, but there's one creative option for those desperately seeking a way to hold onto those beloved closet castoffs. Bringing a tech-savvy touch to the tried-and-true tailoring concept is Stitch, a luxe boutique-like alterations shop that debuted on Melrose Avenue last weekend.
Located a few blocks east from essential vintage shop Wasteland, the luxe tailor shop boasts a team of seamstresses both on-site and traveling, should you require the fixings come to you. In addition to its menu of cut-and-sew services—which includes suit tailoring, trouser and skirt hemming, dress alterations, and more ($22 to $75 and up)—Stitch offers a 48-hour turnaround and an automated system that notifies customers when garments are ready for pickup.
Need your fashion fixed? The shop's also offering 35% off to new customers; you can hit up Stitch at 7306 Melrose Ave.
Stitch is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 7pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
