What’s old is new again!
Westfield Tailors, the North Avenue sewing and alterations shop, is relocating to Elm Street in Downtown Westfield, inside the former home Francolino Clothiers, a spot with a long history of master tailoring.
“Coincidentally, tailoring has existed in that location over 60 years, and the original tailor business was named Westfield Tailors,” noted Sherry Cronin, the head of the Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC).
Francolino had occupied the space at 129 Elm Street for 34 years until illness forced their recent retirement, according to the DWC.
Westfield Tailors is owned by Thomas Charles. He has more than thirty years of experience in the business. He offers a wide range of services and regularly alters bridal gowns, formal dresses, men’s and women’s suits, shirts, trousers, and jeans to guarantee a perfect fit.
Custom made suits, shirts, trousers, sports coats, and dresses, as well as pillows, drapes, roman shades, and cornices are also among the services that Westfield Tailors provides, according to their website.
