Reviewing the Best Tailors in Winnipeg

To determine if a tailor should be added to our list, we reviewed each one based on the following elements:

Quality. In tailoring, craftsmanship is the name of the game, even if it’s just a simple zipper replacement. We set out to know if the tailor’s output keeps clients coming back for regular requests.
Customer Service. People relations are a big factor in this business, as tailors need to study and flawlessly execute individual preferences and requests. This is especially true when it comes to client retention.
Price. Although there are different pricing structures in this industry, we want to find out if customers find the rates fair or justifiable.
Overall Experience. Finally, and most importantly, the ultimate litmus test is client happiness. Do they walk out the door completely satisfied and ready to recommend the tailor?

Overall Experience★★★★★ (5/5)

Most, if not all customers, hail the expert-and-protégé tandem of Giovanni Lagioia and Nick Klein as one of the best tailoring teams in town. Passionate, seasoned, attentive, and personal are some of their most dominant descriptions of the duo.

We love it when the names behind a brand truly live up to their reputation. More than their obvious talent for tailoring, it is clear that there is strong teamwork at play here.

The beautiful mentoring relationship between master tailor Lagioia and Klein is an assurance to clients that the former’s legacy of craftsmanship will continue through the latter. The good thing about this is that their clientele will continue to come to their shop, even if only Klein was present.

We think that the Lagioia & Klein brand experience is one for the books. First off, we are truly impressed that everything is done in-house, from measurements and fabric-cutting to construction and fittings. 

What’s great about this is that the client can witness the entire process up close. This will allow them to appreciate the tailoring process and be an active part of that journey.

And this is exactly what this tailoring shop has set out to do – invite the client to collaborate with the tailors on their bespoke piece, steaming-hot espresso in hand (a great personal touch!).

We love that the craft of tailoring bespoke suits is well-preserved and shown off in this shop. Clients even get to look at and feel Lagioia & Klein’s curation of exquisite Italian fabrics and envision what the final piece will look like.

Most importantly, clients rave about the pristine quality of their work. Each masterpiece shows the incredible attention to detail given to it, as well as the heart and soul poured into the process of making it.

With this, many first-time clients who initially came in for an alteration or a custom piece made the decision to plan to get some bespoke items done in the future. To us, a tailoring shop can’t get a better testimonial than that.


  • Signature brand experience 
  • Full in-house production
  • Passionate and experienced tailors
  • Reasonably-priced alteration services
  • Personal and responsive customer service
  • Collaboration with the client
  • Quality Italian fabrics
  • Seamless online booking system and e-mailing of receipts


  • Custom and bespoke services can be too pricey for some people
  • Bespoke services are limited to menswear

Customer Reviews

“In today’s age, the Tailor is an Endangered Species.  This shop honours the tradition of fine, bespoke garments.  The entire experience is pure joy.

To test out the process, I started with a couple of alterations to pieces that were getting a bit loose.  Great results.

Next I moved into custom suit territory, and, my friends, you cannot beat this.  The entire experience was personal and responsive.  Nic Klein worked with me on fabric, cut, and a slew of customizations to meet my needs.  He even threw in a matching face mask.  The man is truly an artist.

It wasn’t cheap, but I’d gladly pay double to look this good.” –Chris

“Nick Klein is the definition of a professional. He is passionate about his work and everything he makes is of the highest quality. Very reasonable prices for alterations and his custom/handmade suits are worth the price. Would recommend to anyone!” –Braden Thompson

“Amazing bespoke tailor shop in Winnipeg.  Finest Italian fabric custom tailored to suit you.  Definitely not your “made to measure” men’s clothing.  An amazing experience.  Awesome espressos too!” –Roland Klein

Quality★★★★★ (5/5)
Customer Service★★★★★ (5/5)
Price★★★★☆ (4/5)
Overall Experience★★★★★ (5/5)

What stands out to us in getting to know Serafino Falvo Tailors are the length and breadth of the experience of its owners, master tailor Serafino and dressmaker Paola. 

This husband-and-wife team’s expertise and strong collaboration stand out when it comes to the brand, allowing the quality of their pieces to speak for themselves.

Not only is this duo a force to be reckoned with talent-wise, but clients commend them for being a joy to work with. We think that this makes them both credible and trustworthy, a potent combination that has kept the shop thriving for over three decades.

We love that they offer a good range of custom clothing options, from formals and businesswear to leisure pieces. We also appreciate that they provide similar services for women, particularly for business apparel.

Offering different types of custom clothing allows them to widen their client base, as they can tap into both the men’s and women’s segments.  

We also like that they have a great selection of top-quality accessories ready for men. This is a thoughtful gesture on their part to create an end-to-end experience with clients, helping them bring home a complete look.

Another fantastic way they put their expertise into good use is by offering wardrobe consulting services. In doing so, they extend their services by tapping into the client’s lifestyle rather than just a specific occasion in their life.

We think that this is a win for both the clients, as investing in an entire wardrobe actually comes out cheaper for clients than having one item made at a time. 

Despite the relatively expensive service category they fall under, clients think that they offer fair prices. This tells us that their level of expertise and craftsmanship is clearly recognized in their work.


  • Excellent selection of fabrics and materials
  • Fair prices on custom pieces
  • Expert, personable, honest, and trustworthy tailoring team
  • Quality workmanship
  • Over three decades of expertise and over a half a century of combined experience


  • Custom and bespoke services can be too pricey for some people
  • No alteration services

Customer Reviews

“Mr Falvo is a wonderful man. His tailoring and the material he chooses for his suits is absolutely beyond compare. If you want a really good custom made suit and have patience and a good budget, get a suit here.” –Darryl Bowman

“Serafino is a treasure.  There are not many master italian tailor’s left.  If you want to wear a piece of art go see him!” –Hima Dong

“Wonderful man with an old-world charm.  He has been my go-to tailor for years, and always will be.  You won’t find a more pleasant man who also does great work and at fair prices.” –S James

Customer Service★★★★★ (5/5)
Price★★★★☆ (4/5)
Overall Experience★★★★☆ (4/5)

First things first – we love how many different services Made by Yana offers! On top of the usual tailoring and alteration services, we think that it’s thoughtful of owner Yana to also offer adaptive clothing for people with special or specific needs.

She even does uniform-making and jersey resizing, which tells us that this is a shop that is eager to cater to all kinds of people. 

Clients love her professionalism and energy, as well as the depth of her experience (she’s been doing this for over 40 years!). We think that this creates confidence not just in her, but in her team. 

A great selling point of Made by Yana is its ability to take walk-ins and offer emergency while-you-wait services. We think that there is a huge market for this category, as people do encounter urgent alteration or tailoring needs that most shops won’t be able to accommodate.

Meanwhile, customers who prefer to schedule their appointments in advance will also be pleased to know that they have an online appointment booking system.

Despite the number of clients they continue to attract, the team continues to maintain a good turnaround time, which we find remarkable. 

Most clients provide positive feedback on their alteration services, which are consistently of the finest quality. While there are a couple of negative reviews on specific services, Made by Yana has promptly addressed these and clearly communicated their process to the clients.

It’s inevitable for a shop to receive some less-than-stellar feedback, and what we find admirable about Made by Yana is their willingness to immediately address these.

All in all, we think that this shop is a great option for everyday needs and special occasions.


  • Over 40 years of experience
  • Extensive range of services
  • Open to walk-ins
  • Emergency while-you-wait services available
  • Online appointment system
  • Friendly, knowledgeable, and energetic owner
  • Top-notch alterations and repairs
  • Different types of custom services available
  • Quick turnaround time


  • Slightly more expensive than counterparts

Customer Reviews

The way my clothes looks is a big deal for me, so I was worried that being abroad I won’t be able to find a place where I can get the level of the service I’m used to. Thanks god I googled this place, all personal was fantastic, Yana is energetic and positive, she altered my jeans exactly as I’ve seen how it in my head!  It was nice to chat with her as well. Overall great experience!” –Max Nemtsov

“I can say with confidence that Yana has been THE ONLY seamstress in Winnipeg I can trust with my alterations and fitting of suits and dress shirts. Not once have I been disappointed with the quality of work here. After Yana fixed the butchered hemming job I got done at another place I knew I found the one! 🙂 highly highly recommended!!” –Stack Marketing

“Yana is a highly skilled designer and tailor in Winnipeg. All her work is carefully done with skill and precision at affordable prices. I’ve been bringing my clothing to her for repairs and alterations since she first opened her shop and I’ve always been extremely happy with her work and the effort she puts into every single garment.” –Violet Rusu

Overall Experience★★★★☆ (4/5)

The top three features mentioned by clients about Tam Custom Tailor’s brand of service are fine workmanship, quick turnaround time, and reasonable rates.

When speed, quality, and affordability are your strongest suits (no pun intended) as a tailor, you are bound to have a good roster of repeat clientele. And this is exactly what owner and tailor Tam has, which we are not surprised by.

Apart from this magic trifecta, customers return to the shop because of Tam himself. They describe this shop owner and tailor as understanding, flexible, friendly, and professional.

We love that when we ask customers about their experience, they usually have a story to tell about how Tam accommodated their unique circumstances. Whether it was a budget issue or a personal emergency, it is clear to us that they appreciate Tam for his kindness.

The most important aspects of doing business are personal character and integrity, which Tam seems to possess in spades. We think that this is what has gotten him this far in this industry, and will keep him here.

But even the nicest tailors aren’t perfect. Tam Custom Tailor has received some negative feedback regarding its customer service and responsiveness.

While these happened some years ago, we’re not certain about how they were resolved. We can only hope that Tam was able to reach out to these clients and make amends.

Overall, we think that the team has likely learned from these experiences, as their most recent reviews have been extremely positive.


  • Great quality and turnaround time
  • Caring, friendly, and knowledgeable tailor
  • Reasonable rates


  • Some customer service complaints
  • Can be unresponsive to emails

Customer Reviews

“A trusted craftsman. Tam did an amazing job on altering my $2K Italian Canali wool suit.  He does quality work at a fair price. Friendly and a exceptional person. He’s the best. Thank you Tam!” –Michael Koch-Schulte

“Can’t say enough good things about Tam. I’ve taken casual clothes to him, as well as dress clothes, and he always knocks it out of the park. He even made me a custom 3-piece suit from scratch a couple years ago, and it is the best one I own, hands down. I’ll include a photo. Even more important than his tailoring skills, he’s just a good person. Very caring, professional and pleasant to deal with. He does a lot of charity work as well which says a lot. Thanks for everything, Tam!” – Can’t say enough good things about Tam. I’ve taken casual clothes to him, as well as dress clothes, and he always knocks it out of the park.

“Tam is a very kind, friendly, approachable and genuine individual. He is very flexible and did a very good quality job letting out two out of three of the skirts I brought to him. The third one I couldn’t afford to pay for and he gave it back to me without charging me with a smile and a hug even though he had already done some work on it. I felt really bad but he told me to just be happy and not to worry. I recommend this tailor shop above all others. Nothing but professional, understanding and kind service here. I have never met any individual as optimistic and understanding as Tam. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Tam!” –Secular Sista

Overall Experience★★★★★ (5/5)

At the helm of Benny’s Custom Formal Wear is expert tailor Martino Vergata, who has earned the loyalty and respect of his clientele with his wealth of experience and immense thoughtfulness.

Most brides, grooms, and wedding entourages speak highly of Benny’s Custom Formal Wear, citing the excellent craftsmanship of their bespoke clothing or the pristine alteration or repair work done on an item.

They also praise the incredible attention to detail, which we think is remarkable given their quick turnaround time. This shows that they are truly experts, as they can execute flawless work in a short amount of time.

Also impressive is Vergata’s commitment to be accessible to more men, despite the higher price tag of bespoke tailoring. He will work with the clients’ budgets to come up with the best quality item that’s reflective of their personal style sense.

We love this brand credo, which we think offers a rare gift to today’s men: the accessibility of finely-tailored suits. Whereas most shops would price this at a premium, Benny’s Custom Formal Wear will meet the clients where they are.

One thing that stands out in countless client stories is Vergata and his team’s natural inclination to go the extra mile. Whether it’s adding extra flair to packaging or doing repair work that had gone unnoticed, we think that it’s this spirit of generosity that elevates the brand experience.

We love it when a service speaks for itself, and this is certainly true of this shop. The team’s professionalism under the leadership of its knowledgeable owner shines through in their output, which we find absolutely noteworthy.
