Concert Band and Concert Choir Formals - Alterations

All new tux pants and a number of our dresses will need to hemmed. We ask that dresses not drag on the floor. The best length for both the tux pants and dress would be for the pants or dress to hit the top of the instep.

If you would like to have formals hemmed professionally, we work with Bridge Cleaners, located in the LA Fitness Shopping Center at the corner of Newhall Ranch Road and Rye Canyon.
