I have used this tailor several times. The first time i was very pleased. I had my daughters pageant dress altered it was a little pricey. The second time, the price was great but I really couldn't tell it had been altered. I really don't think it was. I did not try it until days later so I said whats the use. This is my third try I have not got my garments back, but two days before it was to be picked up I stopped by and nothing had been done. They are a little rude and very over priced. I'm looking for a new tailor.

I recently went to Bowie Tailor to have a pair of pants tailored at the waist and the length hemmed. Coming from NYC I make it a point of having one garment tailored first to see what kind of work is done before I trust someone with more. The man behind the counter had me try on the pants, took the measurements and said to return in about a week to pick them up. I did so. I thought the charge was bit expensive but figured the work would be worth it. When I returned I was in a rush so I didn't try them on. About two days later when I was ready to wear the pants they were too tight. I wasn't able to return back to the shop until about 5 days later. When I did he refused to "fix" the pants unless I paid an additional $10! His reasoning was that I could have gained weight within that time and I should have returned the pants sooner. When I explained I couldn't he wouldn't hear it. He was rude and extremly unprofessional. I took my pants and will not be returning. My advice; avoid this place at all costs.

Bowie Tailors is a rip off! The primary tailor is rude, abusive, yells at customers, and does not provide any customer service. He held a bridesmaid's dress of mine that he did not alter and refused to release it until I paid a fee. He threw the dress at me and snatched five $1 bills (all the cash I had) after I refused to use my card to pay his "consult fee"...which is not mentioned anywhere in the shop. He pushed me, also. The Better Business Bureau should investigate him. Bowie PD should arrest this man for assault, also. Stay away from Bowie Tailors!! This is a BAD shop!

Though difficult to understand at times, they have done an outstanding job altering several men's and women's business suits, as well as formal wear for our family. The garments have been returned fitting perfectly and excellently done.

I came in to ask a question about getting a garmet tailored. The man in the store would not even look at me for a good 2 minutes. Once I finally began to walk towards him, he shot up and behind the counter, and imatiently asked what I needed.
I asked him how much it would be to hem a skirt and he told me to try it on and he would do it. I told him I didn't have it with me and that I just wanted to know how much it was. He said he couldn't tell me without the skirt. I tried to describe the skirt to him, but he dismissed me. Will not be going back there.

I had my daughter's private school skirts altered by the Bowie Tailors. The tailor was very professional in working with us. The work performed by the tailor was very detailed and perfect. The tailor had a keen focus on detail and customer service. We take our clothes (pants, dresses, coats...etc) for alterations to this tailor. The cost is reasonable for the high level of quality work. This company does an excellent job. I also refer my friends to his company.

They have a weird little dog in the shop that is so fat it looks like it's going to explode. No one that works there speaks even close to decent english. The two men always look angry and are very short-tempered. They barely make an effort not to poke you with the needles. Forget asking questions, they can't or won't answer. They make it sound like you have to pay upfront, but some people (the person behind me) don't have to. They don't have any posted pricing for their alterations. They are expensive and the quality is so-so.

I've taken several items to this tailor, and they do an ok job. I recently had to take another pair of pants to a different tailor and found I have been overpaying at Bowie Tailors, by a lot. The other tailor posts their pricing, while Bowie Tailors does not. Will not be going back, even though they did a good job, the other guy did ok too, for much less $.

I had a dress altered by this tailor and it was over $100 - more than the dress cost! They insisted I pay in full upfront. I had an issue with the hemline being crooked when I went to pick it up, and they wouldn't even acknowlege my questions. I was so frustrated I left.

The straps they adjusted were messy as well. Would have been willing to overlook the cost or even the minor errors in exchange for customer service or reasonable pricing.

Very reliable shop that does good work. This shop has altered several shirts and a couple of dresses for my family. The alterations were good quality and done on time. Reasonable prices in comparison to other tailors in the area. High recommended.

I've taken two dresses here in the past--one for hemming and one for extensive alterations. Both times, Bowie Tailors did an excellent job. They are a small shop in Bowie Town Center and it looks like they only have two or three employees on site, so it helps to get your clothing in several days before you need it. But they always complete the work on schedule, at least in my experience. The shop is nice. They have two dressing rooms and an area with a 3-angle mirror. They ask you exactly what you need, instead of assuming they know. One downside is they are closed on Sundays. Prices are reasonable ($50-$100), but probably not the cheapest.

PROS: Service
CONS:
