What customers have said:
"Sylvian is the best tailor in Portland. The guy has skills
that few have; he elevates it to an art. Attention to
detail. High-quality materials. Pride in craftsmanship. And a
great guy, too."
"I just purchased a suit from Silvian. I was a little hesitant
but and I couldn't be happier. His work made it look like it
was a handmade "custom suit" that cost $1500. Silvian is a
great guy too -- friendly and easy going. Excellent
"Sylvian is THE MASTER tailor of Portland, Oregon. He is a
perfectionist and I would not have my clothes altered by
anyone else. He spends time and cares about each and every
article of clothing that comes into his shop. Not only is he a
Master Tailor...he is also a friend and caring
individual. Whomever steps into his shop immediately feels
"I had ordered some suits from Joseph Banks and they did a very
poor job. I took them to Sylvian to see what he could do. When I
arrived to pick up my suits, I was astonished. Night and Day
compared to when I first brought them in. A fantastic job!"
"After spending twenty minutes talking to Sylvian, I knew
before he even made a stitch, my suits were in good
hands. Sylvian completes his work on time (rare for most
tailors) and has a sartorial eye for how clothes should
fit. Drop by his shop anytime and you'll see him salvaging
garments that were previously slaughtered by other tailors. Go
see him, you won't be disappointed."
