custom tailoring

Important Facts for Custom Tailoring Your Suit

When attending a formal, special event or occasion, whether a festive dinner, a wedding, or a cocktail dance, everybody wants to look polished, sharp and their absolute best. The typical first step to accomplishing this is to go out and purchase a new, stylish suit. Though many suits look near to perfect on the rack, more times than not when you try it on, it simply does not hang well on your body type. Whether the pant legs are way too long, the suit jacket sleeves may hang over your hands, or the entire fit of the suit is simply far too large, custom tailoring can make all the difference in your fit.

COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR TAILOR

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our team of dedicated specialists is committed to providing the highest quality services to all our valued clients. When it comes to custom tailoring our experts want to understand what your specific needs are in our efforts to meet with the individual needs of all our clients. With that said, when you talk with our tailors it is important that you share with us all your concerns and all your expectations.

If your suit sleeves do not hit just above the cuff of your shirt, then chances are the sleeves are too long and our tailors will then need to bring up the sleeve somewhat. Typically, a suit sleeve that needs shortening will involve bringing up the sleeve about ¼ to ½ of an inch. If your suit pants are too long then surely you want to have them altered since pant legs that are too long are simply not a neat and fashionable look. There are a number of ways that our tailors can shorten the legs of your pants by way of our custom tailoring. We can cuff the pants to make them shorter, we can uncuff them to make them a bit longer, or we can taper pant legs or untaper them with either no break or a quarter, half or full break, whichever meets with your personal needs.

If your new pants are overall too big and far too loose fitting, we will measure your waistline and bring in the waist of the pant so that we can customize its overall fit to meet with your individual size and needs. If your pants end up being overall too small, this may be a somewhat difficult adjustment to make, but is certainly doable. Again, our tailors will take your proper waist measurement in our efforts to once again customize the fit of your pants to provide an ideal fit. More times than not suit pants are tailored with extra fabric located within the pants, which will allow our specialists to let out the waist of your pants anywhere from a half size to even sometimes a full size if need be.

No matter what your tailoring needs may be, it is important to communicate directly with our specialists and tailors and be specific with your needs and perhaps even why you feel the alterations are necessary. Our highly skilled and experienced tailors are on hand to answer any questions you may have and discuss any concerns you may have about your newly purchased suit and the custom tailoring needs you may have.

Spot Clean Only

Beware of that ‘Spot Clean Only’ Label

We all take steps to properly care for and maintain our garments, fabrics and other attire. Sometimes knowing whether to dry clean an item or not can be a bit challenging. More times than not dry clean garments will be donned with the typical ‘dry clean only’ tag which outwardly tells you not to home wash or dry specific garments. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we want to take a moment to familiarize our clients with yet another garment label that can be more than confusing – the ‘spot clean only ‘label found typically on your very high-end designer garments and clothing.

PROBLEMS TO BE AWARE OF

When it’s time to address that spot clean only label on your garment, rest assured you are apt to be confronted with one problem or another. These high-end clothing items are often hand-made and contain all types of delicate trimmings. From delicate lace and beads to any number of other decorative clothing trims, fragile upscale garments can be a cleaning challenge for anyone.

When you see this label on any of your garments be aware that it typically implies that the garment cannot be safely immersed or washed in a commercial cleaning machine of any type. Nor can the garment be laundered or dry cleaned. Rather, the garment will need to be cleaned only by hand. In addition, as part of the hand washing technique, a local spotting agent accompanied by steam and air drying is the proper overall technique to use. However, in adhering to these protocols, there are a couple of problems that can occur. For one, you may notice residual watermarks that occur as a result of the cleaning solvents used. Secondly, the area that you have now cleaned is more than likely going to make its presence known and stand out well above the rest of the garment because that area is much cleaner than the remainder of the fabric. Surely, these are problems we would all like to avoid.

 

IT’S BEST TO LEAVE THE CLEANING TO THE PROFESSIONALS

The team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations is equipped to provide proper care and treatment of high-end garments and fabrics. With that said, items that can only be spot cleaned will require us to share possible results and techniques with our clients in advance of cleaning any garments. We want to be sure that clients are made aware of any not so common outcomes that could potentially occur when cleaning spot clean only garments and fabrics. Our team is only authorized to clean these types of items once we are assured the client has a full understanding and comprehension of what is involved. Further, we would need you to acknowledge the simple fact that we cannot guarantee the final outcome of your high-end garment, but are prepared and equipped to take steps necessary to provide adequate cleaning. Certainly, they are not the easiest garments to care for or maintain, but our team of specialists is here to assist.

 

PERHAPS YOU WILL WANT TO CHOOSE A DIFFERENT FABRIC

Before you choose to purchase a garment that has a spot clean only label you may want to do a bit of research or talk to someone with regard to proper cleaning techniques for the specific fabric. When purchasing such a garment you may want to ask the salesperson what the restrictions and the return policy is on the garment if it cannot be cleaned satisfactorily. Though it makes better

sense to simply not buy the garment, sometimes it is that one high-end garment that is sure to satisfy the perfect holiday wardrobe. Whatever the case may be, when wearing a garment with a spot clean only label, be sure to be extra careful to avoid getting the garment heavily soiled and avoid any spotting at all. It’s that time of year again and the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations wants to send along wishes from our family to yours for a joyous and safe holiday season!

Brentwood dry cleaning

Simple Dry-Cleaning Facts

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, our highly reputable presence in the marketplace is dependent upon our high-quality work performance and services. With that said, we thought we would share with our valued clients some very simple but practical facts about dry cleaning that we feel are useful for everyone to know. We hope you find this information both useful and informative for you and your family.

SIMPLE AND PRACTICAL FACTS

  • Not every type of stain can actually be removed – Being able to successfully remove a stain from garments or fabrics is highly dependent upon the nature and source of the actual stain as well as the fabric type and most importantly how colorfast the dye is. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners our team of professionals is highly skilled and trained to not only identify the stains themselves, but also in identifying fabrics and determining the best protocol and technique for removing the stains. With all that said, it is important to know that stains, such as dried paint or ink that has set into the fabric having been exposed to a home cleaning process first, are more than likely impossible to be removed from the fabric.
  • Most garments, including shirts can definitely shrink – If the material of a garment has not been properly preshrunk or even if a small section of a garment has not gone through a proper stabilizing process during its manufacture, then the chances are likely that the garment can shrink. It is estimated that anywhere between 2 to 3 percent shrinkage is not only possible but practical as well.
  • The care labels on clothing items don’t always tell the truth – Manufacturers of garments are required to apply labels that present with reasonable care instructions for the buyer. However, the Federal Trade Commission’s Care Label Rule does not require manufacturers to perform testing before they apply care labels to garments. Additionally, they are not required to provide any specific instructions for the overall care of fabrics. With that said, typically manufacturers do not test garments in advance of applying care labels to them.
  • Garments that are dry cleaned do not wear out faster than those that are not – The Dry Cleaning and Laundry Institute has never set forth any facts indicating that dry cleaning processes minimize the lifespan of fabrics or wear them out at all. However, it has been proven that for those garments that are marked “dry clean only” and are not professionally cleaned on a routine basis, then indeed the lifespan of the garment can be reduced.

Seasonal Garments

Tips for Storing Your Seasonal Garments

Well, summer has been over now for quite some time, fall has arrived in full bloom, and winter is right around the corner. With that said the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations wants to share with our valued clients some simple tips for storing away all those seasonal garments.

Having to pack up and store away your summer wardrobe can certainly be a challenge and is a task most people don’t typically welcome. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners we know full well that this very task, necessary as it is, can turn into a rather large project and, without proper attention, a rather unorganized and frustrating project at that.

With that said, we suggest you follow these simple but practical tips below that are sure to make storing away seasonal clothing and garments as well as unpacking them when the season presents itself again, quite easy for everyone who engages.

 

SIMPLE BUT PRACTICAL TIPS

  • Choose the right location to store your clothing – Moisture and bugs can truly be your number one enemy when it comes time to store away your garments. We strongly advise you to store away your seasonal garments in a cool, dry and dark location to protect your cherished clothing items over the seasonal span of time.
  • Be sure to label accordingly – For those of us who are extremely organized, we know full well how important it is to label items. Nothing is more frustrating than having to sift through a barrage of bags, boxes, or the likes when trying to locate a specific item, and that includes locating your stored garments. With this thought in mind, our team recommends you make your time and efforts a whole lot easier by labelling all clothing or garment bags or boxes.
  • Choose your organizational tactics carefully – For many people, it may be a simple task to simply gather up all your summer outfits, garments and accessories and simply toss them all into one big bag or box. Trust us, if you choose this option, you will be sure to regret your actions come next year. It is wise to organize all your garments by style of clothing or even organize them by where in your everyday life they would exist during a typical summer season. Whichever option you choose, you are sure to find whatever you are looking for next summer quickly and easily because you chose to take the time to be organized.
  • Don’t be a hoarder – Donate items you no longer need or will no longer wear – When one season comes to an end and during your storage process, take time out to look at all your garments and determine which, if any, you no longer need, no longer want, or will no longer wear. I’m sure, like everybody else, you have a variety of garments that have just been lying around or hanging in your closet for years that you always seem to bypass when getting prepped for work or a night out with friends. When prepping your seasonal garments for storage, take advantage of this ideal time to donate all those items you no longer want or need to a charity of choice. Surely, there are many people out there who will find your unwanted items to be a real treasure to them.
  • Don’t forget the dry cleaning – As you start sifting and sorting all your garments that need to be stored away until next year, be sure to give focus to those items that require dry cleaning. We highly recommend you dry clean those items in advance of storage so that next year you simply have to unpack your favorite articles of clothing and just choose those you want to wear. This also goes for any clothing items that may be in need of tailoring or sewing repair. Be sure to take care of each and every necessity before storing the garments away. This will make it a breeze for you to unpack, enjoy and dress to impress when the summer months are here once again.

Winter Preparations

Winter Preparations for your Home

Well, the wonderful fall season is in full bloom with many more scenic weeks ahead and picture-perfect moments to share, including the falling leaves, comfy temperatures, lots of sunshine and above all lots and lots of fall foliage. With that said, the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to remind all our valued clients that this is also the time of year to begin making winter preparations for your home. The cold and snowy season can make unexpected demands on us and present with challenges, so you want to ensure that your home is prepared and ready to handle whatever comes your way.

SERVICES WE OFFER HERE AT JIMMY’S CLEANERS

Among the variety of cleaning services we offer here at Jimmy’s Cleaners is that of fire, smoke and water restoration to damaged clothing, linens, curtains, rugs and other household items. Often times we see the need for these services because homeowners fail to properly winterize their homes, which is why we want to take this time to offer a simple checklist of winter preparations for your home.

PREPARE YOU HOME FOR THE WINTER SEASON AHEAD

  • Inspect your fireplace and chimney – One of the most common, fun-filled activities during the winter months is that of sitting by the fireplace with family and friends and sharing in pleasant conversations, snacks and perhaps even a cocktail. This is also one of the most obvious hazards in your home as well. For this reason, it is imperative that you have your fireplace, flue, and your chimney inspected at minimum once per year to ensure the overall safety of each. Contact a chimney sweep company to assess your system looking for clogged dampers, creosote buildup or any other issues that could ultimately impede your system’s airflow or any other simple function of your fireplace.
  • Inspect and perform routine maintenance of your heating system – In advance of the severe cold weather you want to be sure that your furnace is in peak operating condition. Ensuring the overall functionality of your heating system, which also includes your hot water heater, is important to the safety and well-being of your family. A malfunctioning heating system can cause high levels of carbon monoxide to be present in your home. This is one of the primary reasons why you want to schedule an annual inspection as well as routine maintenance of your system.
  • Swap out smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries – Before the cold weather sets in, it is a good ideal to install fresh batteries in all your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in your home to ensure that they are functioning properly. Be sure you have a sufficient number of detectors in your home, depending upon the size of your living space. We suggest you be certain that you have detectors on each floor of your home and in each and every bedroom as well. Carbon monoxide detectors are better served when placed in the hallways that border each of the bedrooms in your home.
  • Check for insulation issues – Cold weather outdoors can certainly bring the cold temperatures indoor if your home has insufficient insulation. Be sure to check windows

    and doors to ensure that they are properly insulated so as to keep the cold air outside and not allow for it to make its way into the interior of your home. Be sure pipes are properly insulated as well to ensure that they do not burst during the cold weather months.

At Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, we take tremendous pride in providing only the highest quality services to all our valued clients. Our team wants to remind you that it is important to be proactive when assessing your home’s condition.

We hope you found this blog helpful, but want to remind you that if the unthinkable ever happens to your home and family, whether suffering damages from fire, water, or freezing temperatures the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners is here to restore your clothing and other valuable items to their pre-loss condition. It’s time to enjoy the fall season, but don’t be remiss in performing winter preparations for your home well in advance of the cold weather temperatures ahead!

Pants Hem

How to Perform Your Own Pants Hem

One of the most important components of style and fashion, is overall proper fit. Often times you can find that perfect pair of pants that fits your waistline to the tee, but lo and behold, more often than not, the length is way too long. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we want to take a few moments to share with our valued clients the simple steps involved in performing your own pants hem. Hemming your pants is really quite easy to do so there is no reason why you cannot enjoy wearing your newly purchased pants with just the right look and fit.

WHAT YOU NEED TO HEM YOUR OWN PANTS

Truly, hemming your own pants is an easy task. The tools you will need to perform this simple task include a seam ripper, chalk, scissors, a measuring tape, a sewing kit, an ironing board and an iron. The first step in performing your pants hem is to remove all the stitching that is currently there. Use your seam ripper to carefully remove the existing stitches and be sure in doing so that you do not put a hole or a tear in the pants fabric. The zig zag stitching that you will notice along the very edge of the hem itself, you will want to keep intact.

Next, you will need to determine the proper length you want and need. Be sure to put on the typical shoes you will be wearing with your new pants and then fold the pants to reflect the length you want. Pin the hem at the very top and the bottom of the fold and then be sure to look in a mirror to confirm that you have chosen the proper length.

Once you are satisfied with the pin up you have performed, take the pants off and turn them inside out. Using your measuring tape, measure from the top to the bottom of the fold you put in place and then fold and pin the remainder of the pants hem. You can also use the chalk at this point to make sure that the hem is even all around. Once you finish the first leg, follow the same protocol with the other pant leg.

The next simple step, before our final step, is to now iron your pants all along the bottom edge and remove the pins as you go. The final step is to choose the proper color thread that matches your pants color. Thread your needle and start stitching about an eighth of an inch from the top of your ironed hem and continue to stitch all around. Once you have completed this stitching, your hem is all set and your new pants are the proper length you need them to be.

Brentwood Down Comforter Dry Cleaning Services

All year long, whether winter, spring, summer or fall, we all use our blankets and down comforters. With that said, summer is coming to a close and cooler fall weather is right around the corner. In the fall, there is nothing quite as relaxing at the end of a busy day than sitting and watching a movie in bed, nestled under your comfy down comforter.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO CLEAN YOUR COMFORTERS REGULARLY

When we sleep at night, our sheets, blankets and down comforters accumulate a whole lot of sweat and oils from our bodies as well as various types of dust and other particles that are freely floating about your bedroom. If you go for extended periods of time without cleaning your blankets, duvets, and comforters you can easily increase your risk of suffering from a number of conditions. From allergies and skin irritations to respiratory congestion, dirty blankets and down comforters can contribute to a number of health issues.

With that said, there is a very convenient, as well as easy and affordable solution to these potential problems – duvet, blanket and down comforter dry cleaning services. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, our team of specialists takes tremendous pride in providing our clients with only the highest quality services and that includes specialized dry cleaning of your favorite duvets, blankets and down comforters.

 

THE BENEFITS OF DRY CLEANING ALL YOUR BEDDING

The benefits of dry cleaning your bedding are many and that includes medical benefits as well. When you regularly dry clean your duvets, blankets and down comforters you ensure that they remain clean and safe causing you no health issues. Your bedding, when cleaned, has a whole new look, smell and feel to it. Surely, there is no better feeling than nestling yourself in the cool fall temperatures beneath a freshly dry-cleaned duvet, blanket or comforter. Doing so more than likely will help you have a wonderful night’s sleep and prepare you for a busy day ahead.
