There’s nothing that beats clothing that looks like it was made for you. Because not many of us in this society can afford a personal tailor, we opt for the next best thing: alterations. Alterations are the best way to ensure that your clothing is the best fit for your figure. Here at Ashby’s we are always available to alter the suits and sportswear you purchase from us. But you may not know that we do outside alterations work as well–including alterations for women. The reason we can offer this service is because we literally have the best in the business in our Alterations Department, Ashby’s Menswear team member, Sunet Gilbert. Affectionately known around the store as Mrs. Gilbert, she has been with us since we opened, and has been working with Ms. Debbie Hanks our owner for over 20 years.
Mrs. Gilbert has been in Fayetteville for more than 30 years. She’s been married to her husband James for 43 years, who is retired from the Army. Known for being able to look at a dress or slacks and knowing how to replicate the style and make it, Mrs. Gilbert is the one of the best seamstresses in the area. But as much as she has a talent she has some advice: “If something needs a lot of alterations, you probably have the wrong size, ” she said. This means that you should try on a size lower or higher or try a different cut before you assume that something should just be altered to fit you. This will save you and the seamstress from unnecessary stress! Here are some of the newest items and deals we have in our store this July:
