Editorial review from Citysearch 9/7/2013

This is my first review here. I wrote it on Yelp, but wanted the Citysearch community to be aware too. Because I was treated so horrendously by ""oh-he-is-so-awesome"" Mr. Saad, I want fewer people to get into trouble.\r \r I will base my review on actual facts, and illustrate some of the wrongdoings by the attached photos.\r \r I had a shirt and a suit jacket that I wanted altered. I wanted shirt sleeves shortened, and the jacket taken in and sleeves narrowed. Sounds like a pretty simple vanilla type of task for any tailor, right? Well, not for Mr. Saad.\r \r When I brought the shirt and the jacket, Mr. Saad said that of course he can do the job the way I wanted, took the measurements, and told me to come back next week. I paid 25+tax for the shirt alterations, and 100+tax for the jacket. I come back next week and there is no shirt -- apparently somebody else had taken it by mistake. Okay, not a big deal. Let me try on the jacket.\r \r The jacket sleeves are narrowed, okay, and the waist taken in. But. Hold on. Can you take in a jacket and not make the side vents flare out? A decent tailor can. Mr. Saad can not. So I got the jacket that is taken in, but now the side vents (I've got double vents) are flaring out so much that it's embarrassing to wear the jacket in public. \r \r I complain about the side vents sticking out, and after a lot of haggling he agrees to fix it. (The haggling part is interesting, see below.) Okay, I left hoping he could fix it. He calls back in twenty minutes (!) saying that my jacket is ready. How can he fix the flaring out jacket in twenty minutes like that, you ask? By ironing, apparently! Without taking any precautions -- damaging the jacket. Don't believe? Take a look at the photos. Yes, the tailor called Mr. Saad ruined my suit by ironing it. Granted, it's a cheap suit, I paid $400, but hey, when was the last time you wasted $400? I did today.\r \r Now you know how Mr. Saad can take in a jacket.\r \r Back to the shirt.\r \r Once that somebody returned my shirt, I went in and what's the result? The two sleeves are of different length by at least half an inch. Unfortunately I cannot prove it with a photo, because he ended up shortening the longer sleeve to make the two of equal length, but there was another problem: the sleeves were shortened in a way that made them slanted and look weird worn with the jacket. On the photos, you can see the jacket and the shirt before any tailoring, and you can see that jacket sleeve and shirt sleeve endings are parallel. What do you see on the ""after"" photo? Apparently only the outside part of the shirt sleeves were shortened, making them slanted and look the way you see on the photo. His answer to this complaint? ""This is how you wanted it.""\r \r The most interesting part now. Haggling. I can't quote him word by word, because it contains profanity. He offended me multiple times. Yes, offended, you didn't misheard.\r \r I mean, what kind of business offends its customers? Those that are now out of business. Or should be.\r \r He said I was ""nitpicking."" Excuse me, but I need things done and altered in a reasonably precise manner. That is why I need a tailor. If I was sloppy and didn't care about details, why on earth would I need a tailor?\r \r After telling me that I was ""nitpicking,"" he said ""you messed up your shirt, but I will fix it, and then I'm not responsible."" So I messed up my own shirt? Can you give me a single reason why would I ever mess up my own shirt?\r \r And then all the offensive profanity.\r \r This is so outrageous, it's hard to believe. But this happened to me, a real person, a grad student, who wanted his cheap suit jacket taken in and shirt sleeves shortened.\r \r Verdict: if you need a sloppy tailor, sure, he can be great, lovely, fuzzy, blah-blah. If you care about details, do not go there. And if you still use his ""services"" and find something has gone wrong with your shirt, jacket, pants, whatever, complain at your peril. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/17/2013

I have never used their services, but I want to know how long takes to have a new suit made. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/5/2013

Excellent alterations! I was so impressed with the quality of work at Saad's. I brought in several suit coats that needed some major alterations and they did a seriously exceptional job. I have gone to many tailors and none of them could alter my suits like they did here. The suits now fit like they were custom made for me, it's amazing! I get so many compliments. Not to mention Mr. Saad is such a nice man, he really makes you feel welcome. I will never go anywhere else for tailoring! Try them, you will not be disappointed! more

I love this place! 8/24/2011

I always look for an excuse to go there and buy a new suite the prices are unbeatable for the highest grade quailty of custom Italian fabrics the Shaar family is one of the most careing and respected family owend bussiness's I have ever know of. I love going there and buying polo shirts that havent even hit the stores yet for the season. Pros: pretty much everything about this shop is 5 star service Cons: flawless more

Oh La La! 3/15/2010

My family and I have been going to Saad's for over 5 years now. Saad is amazing, one time I came in just to see how him and his family were doing and I saw him with another customer. Saad was chatting with the customer while training his daughter how to fit the lady, he was telling his daughter from memory about how the customer preferred her suits to fit. He builds a relationship with each customer, my only complaint is that I wish he had next day service on the alterations. On the contrary, I do love to see a successful family owned and operated company! Pros: Service and close to my work Cons: Parking lot is always full, I wish he did next day service more

Great quality. Great Service. 3/15/2010

Saad's tailors has never done me wrong in tailoring my clothes exactly the way I need then and exactly when I need them. He is incredibly competent and proficient at his job. His store also has a great selection of both formal and casual ware at very good prices. My favorite thing about the store is the atmosphere of the place. It seems as if he knows all his customers by name, and the fact they keep coming lets me know that he is consistent in doing a good job. more

Just the right Fit! 3/15/2010

I was referred to Saud's by a friend when I had started my new job that requires me to wear a suit everyday. I was looking for a one stop shop for my suits and my alterations. Saud's was definitely the place! The guy knows his stuff! I loved his great selection, but his knowledge of Men Fashion really was the topper. He helped find exactly what I needed, even thou that some of the things that i wanted he did not carry but he showed me where to get them and even how to wear them. I loved how he treats everyone as family. He recognized every single customer that walked in! It truly did make the deal for me. I got exactly what I wanted and with a smile! One time I had wanted a couple of alterations that I need ASAP (by the end of the week), he was to get most of them done except 2 pairs of pants. He opened up the next day an hour earlier to get them done for me and on top of that he knocked off 20%! Great Tailoring & Better Service! Pros: Great Selection & Excellent Service! more

Great place to get the job done right. 3/14/2010

I am very tall and therefore most of my suites don't fit me correctly. Saad's tailors has been able to accommodate all my tailoring needs and has done so with a smile. With such great customer service and workmanship I will never take my clothes anywhere else! Pros: I work in the galleria and this shop is so close to me Cons: located off westhimer more
