Imagine this scenario: It’s Tuesday night. You have an interview the next day. You pull out your best suit for the interview. When you try on the pants. They do not seem to fit quite right. Maybe it is the holiday weight. Maybe it was a few too many cheese sticks at happy hour over the past year. It does not matter what caused it, but those pants that fit this time last year just will not snap closed. You try and try. You almost get it, and SNAP! The button goes flying across the room. You think about buying new pants in the morning. What a waste of money, you realize. You have to sit down and think about what you are going to do. The thought occurs to you: same day alternations.
Same day alternations may sound like an answer that is too good to be true. But if there is a market for it, it will most likely exist! Same day alternations used to be something we did at home, actually. It was not uncommon for someone in the family to do alterations whenever necessary. Even when people bought new clothes, they were altered at home so that they fit perfectly. It is not imagined that people use to wear clothes that fit better back in the day. They were customized!
Today, many people do not know how to even sew a button back onto a shirt. Instead, they throw the whole shirt away. That is a waste. Perhaps they could look up how to sew a button on a shirt. Or, if they do not have the time for that, they could just as easily take it to a dry cleaner that offers same day alternations.
In the scenario we imagined earlier, taking the pants for same day alterations may just be the ticket. You show up early, tell the tailor that the pants are an inch or so too small. Hopefully you remember to bring the button that fell off. The tailor may be able to use the same one so that the pants look as good as new. You head home to put on the suit, head off to the interview in style, and land the job. That is the power of thinking of your feet!
Same day alterations have helped many people out in a pinch. Imagine a wedding dress that rips on the day of a wedding. Same day alterations could be what is needed to save the day. For other people, the same day aspect is just a matter of convenience. If you drop off your dry cleaning in the morning, and it has been altered and cleaned by time you get off work, you lose less time waiting on it.
One Miami-area location that offers same day alternations is Alan Dry Cleaners. If you need alterations for your pants, no need to panic! We are here to help.
