What are your quality standards?
The quality of our suits is unparalleled, and we have searched for years to perfect workmanship and craftsmanship. All of our suits are half canvas (with a full-canvas option), and can be fully customized. We have a wide array of fabrics/materials available for customization. Our tailors have decades of experience, and we are proud of their commitment to excellence.
Do you offer ladies' apparel?
We offer apparel for all people, regardless of gender. It is our hope to create a customized look that will help you feel like your best self!
Can I just walk into the shop anytime, or do I need to schedule an appointment?
Our business is mobile, meaning we come to your home or place of business.* Mr. Vandiver works by appointment only. This ensures that each client gets the attention and time that they deserve. You may schedule an appointment by sending an email to email@example.com.
*Our area of local travel coverage covers the states of MA, NY, NJ, CT, and PA. We travel further as well, but there is a suit minimum. For more information about travel outside of these states, please contact Mr. Vandiver by clicking here.
What Is Your Price Range?
Our prices range from $600-$2500 for suits and $125-$425 for shirts.* We have a “half now,” “half-later” system: At the time of the consultation (or later, if the client doesn’t want to order right away), a 50% deposit is required. The balance is due at delivery.
Suit and shirt price ranges vary with fabric types/selection/weight/brand, etc., but all have the same quality of workmanship.
What Is Your Turnaround Time?
Our garments usually arrive in 4-6 weeks.
How Do You Ensure a Perfect Fit?
First off, we measure very meticulously: The measurements are the foundation of any tailor-made garment! It’s not enough to measure you and then mail your tailored garment to you when it’s ready. We have a final fitting system in place: When your garment arrives, it is pressed and prepped for you to try it on. Any minor tweaks that you want to make (minor because we try really hard to get it right), we will make at the shop and get it back to you ASAP.
Do You Offer Custom Tailored Formal Wear?
We do custom tailor tuxedos.
What Payment Methods Are Accepted?
We accept cash, checks, money orders, all major credit cards, and PayPal.
How Do I Cancel An Order?
We are unfortunately not able to cancel your order because fabrics are ordered immediately from our fabric suppliers as soon as an order has been placed. Since the garments are exclusively tailored to your body type and measurements, they are very difficult to give to anyone else.
