Fine Tailoring comes home with Door to Door Tailors by Aghaz clothing- Review


Just imagine this: You go to a market, see some super beautiful fabric, imagine yourself in it with some stylish cuts and trimmings looking like a million bucks, get excited, buy it against your better judgement, take it to your tailor, give him a million reference pictures. He tells you it will be done in so and so days, never gives you back in time and when he does, you end up looking like wearing a potato sack.
Quite relatable, no?  Been there, done that and after many such disasters, I have stopped buying loose cloth and get it stitched just to end up disappointed and not liking the dress. BUT still while scrolling down my instagram feed, I loved those pretty lawn joras, peplum tops and those boot cut pants with organza details. So while I was on a search for a good tailor, I toppled over this online tailoring service and took a leap of faith. What happened next was a total delight. If you are from Lahore and are totally devastated by the disasters your tailor does this post is for you! Have a look yourself below:

My Experience:

I got in touch with Door to Door Tailors via instagram and the response was prompt. I talked to them about what I wanted and they instantly showed me the designs which they were doing. They are offering free pick and drop from your place which to be honest is such a relief for me. I took the plunge and told them to come over. I was a little uncomfortable by the idea of tailor coming in my home ad giving him measurements and all, but the lady Saman contacted me and told me that she will be picking the clothes  (another plus).
Now have  look at the stitching and be amazed by the neatness. It really depicts how professionally they are doing this. I asked for a paneled shirt with pearl details over neck line, hem and sleeves, double organza details over boot cut pants. 



And they came exactly the same on the exact time she told me it will be delivered!  Yes, yes I know sounds too good to be true but that actually happened. She brought it herself and asked me to try it out before the payment so if something isn't right I can return it (which I did because the organza detail turned out to be too revealing). In a few days, she brought it back with all the alterations.

Coming to the finishing , the stitching is very neat and fine. There are no loose threads every where. The hemming is pretty neat as well. The pearl detailing are hand stitched and don't come off after one wear ( like some really expensive pret wear). 

One thing you might have to keep in mind is the charges. They might be a little higher than the market prices (if you are used to pay 500-600/suit) but its super reasonable of your tailor charges PKR 1400/- for a single lawn suit. They are charging PKR 600/- for shirt,  PKR 1000/- for 2-piece suit. They charges tend to rise with the design and detailing.

All in all, I am very satisfied with the stitching, detailing, timely delivery and on the top of it all it comes properly pressed ( I am that lazy, yes). Totally recommended if you want to get your beautiful dresses stitched nicely and get them in time. Two thumbs up to Aghaaz Clothing for taking such an initiative. Linking them below so you can get in touch with them easily.

  1. Wow this is so amazing. I have so many unstitched lawn suits resting in my cupboard, but don't wanna ruin them in the hands of tailors. But this idea is so good. Wish someone could start here in Isloo as well. And by the way I am loving your dress and wanna see it's complete look.😃
