    Amazing service

    Posted by Craig on 15th Oct 2022

    Needed a pair of 21oz Iron Heart denim tapered and hemmed and the work was impeccably done. I could not recommend Williamsburg Garment Co more highly for denim alterations! I have since brought them several more pairs of Japanese denim for alterations. If you live in the area, stop by the shop. Maurice is awesome, has great style and gave me good advice on the optimal length, taper and cuffing options. He also makes his own jeans and they look beautiful!

    Denim Tapering Service

    Posted by Bob Dyce on 4th Jun 2022

    This is the second time I’ve used Williamsburg to taper a pair of 25oz Iron Heart jeans. Both times they have done an outstanding job. This time is wanted them a little looser fitting than the first and they were spot on once again and I couldn’t be happier. I will only use them for my selvedge tapering going forward.
