I have checked out the other two tailors in town and found them to be overly expensive. Mannikins has proven to be conhsistantly reasonable for a wide range of tailoring. You can't judge on price alone however. And here is where

The alterations made to a sports jacket I brought in made it tantamount to a custom made jacket. I have had clothes tailored in New York and Los Angeles over the past 50 plus years and have found the work done here to be equal to or better

Red Flag on the play. Mannikins looks to be "stacking the Deck" with more "friends" writing the reviews. I first stumbled on to their site on Google and found the same "stacking". This sort of thing really chafes me so I came looking at

While visiting from out of town I ripped my favorite Hudson Jeans. I walked by Mannekins to see if they could repair the jeans that day. The gal was happy to accomodate me and did a terrific job. I can hardly see where the repair was made.

This business is very clean and organized. The owner seems very knowledgeable with both style and fit. She was friendly and I was very satisfied with the work. I have been there several times and will continue to use them in the future.

I brought my first alteration to Mannikins after my usual tailor was reluctant to alter an evening gown for me due to its complicated construction. i.e. it would cost too much, take too long, and exceed the value of the dress. I went to

If there was one thing I learned today it was ALWAYS ask the price before agreeing to let someone alter my clothes. After hearing that Manikins was the place in SLO for alterations, I was very disappointed when I picked my bridesmaids

Catherine is absolutely fantastic! I have always been hesitant to bring my things into a tailor, however, my roommate introduced me to this amazing shop two years ago and I have been coming back with a handful of clothes every month. She works wonders with the items I have brought in! I went through my closet and had Catherine alter pants to shorts; dresses to tanks and my old clothes have become my new favorites again. They look absolutely wonderful!

She has even worked with me on specific items by adding certain fabrics to the clothing to make bold pockets, and certain stitching for the hemline. She really works with you and feeds of your creative vibes!

Catherine is very experienced and knows exactly what she is doing! She can fix the unfixable, rework old treasures to look new again, and simply make a shirt or pant fit perfectly again. Many clothes used to sit in my closet untouched because I wasn't able to wear them. They simply didn't fit right or they were snagged or damaged along the way have been revamped back into the exact style I could have ever wanted! She has helped me create old clothing into new styles that are more trendy!

This place is great! I wouldn't trust anyone else to hem or sew my clothes! Mannikins is very trusting and dependable. I've never been let down before and I've been going here for almost 4 years now. There are always solutions to any problems I've had, whether it be shortening a unique bridesmaide dress, or making a jacket more fitting so I can wear it everyday. When I first moved here I visited a few other places in slo, but I immediately became attached to Mannikins because of the great customer service and friendly, welcoming attitude. Not to mention how professional and efficient they are, most of my clothes were done early! Thank you & keep up the good work!!

If you're looking for the "right' tailor, look no more. That was pretty cheesy I know, but I mean it. When it comes to tailoring, there are so many things that come it to play: Precision, fit, style and a bunch of others that I probably have no idea about :) There are great tailors with bad style, which means they will probably end up giving you "their" version of what you want. This is not the case with Cathrine. She knows what shes doing and she knows what YOU want...Probably better than you. If you have ever seen her work on suits, you would know what I mean.

Great rates, great service, and a smile that wont quite deserves 5 Big Stars!
