Customer Testimonials

My seamstress, SunChee, truly tailored garments (7 of them) to my dimensions precisely. I am difficult to fit. To zip up a pair of pants and feel a garment precisely hewn to you is indescribable. More than that is worth a mention here. The dressing room and fit platform are generous with good air circulation. The professional elan SunChee demonstrated was so welcoming, it transformed “a fitting” to a celebratory occasion.
Truly Tailored
Sent my favorite hiking jacket in for dry cleaning & for them to replace a button. Upon return the jacket looked way better than when I purchased it new. They went as far as to replace all the buttons so they all would match. WOW, what service! Highly recommend Balfurd’s.
The alterations that Lisa made on the two tops I brought her are exactly what I was hoping for. I moved to State College over a year ago from Seattle, and have been shopping for a tailor ever since. She is the fourth one in town that I tried, and I've already made an appointment to go see her again. I highly recommend her.
Highly Recommend
Always take in shirts for washing, pressing with light starch and have them placed on hangers. Balfurd always does a superb job. Shirts are returned in excellent condition and in a timely manner. All in all, they do a fantastic job. We are always well pleased with their work!
Fantastic Job
