In 1996, Lyudmila Sletkova, a professional tailor from St. Petersburg, Russia, decided to open her own tailoring shop. Her vision was to create a high-end shop on Boston’s most fashionable Newbury Street, where clients could bring their most valued and expensive clothing for the most complicated work. The shop’s name came naturally from the guarantee made to the clients – the Best Fit.
To achieve the goal of providing the highest quality tailoring services, Best Fit sought out the best professionals in the industry with training and experience from around the world. The current team of tailors came together more than ten years ago, and has remained the key to Best Fit’s success. Each of the Best Fit tailors has extensive formal training and many years of practical experience in all facets of the tailoring profession. Their creativity and knowledge allow Best Fit to flawlessly perform both simple and very complex alterations and custom tailoring projects, and to continually widen the range of services. Best Fit’s tailors take pride in working with all clients personally to ensure that the clients’ exact wishes are carried out.
In addition to the highest quality of work, Best Fit has always recognized the importance of ambiance. As its business continued to expand and its client list to grow, Best Fit moved to a larger space (still on Newbury Street) to offer more comfort to its customers and employees. Today, Best Fit boasts an open, welcoming space with large bay windows, an elegant décor, and spacious fitting rooms, to complete the clients’ ideal experience.
