How to Get Started...
All you need to do to get started is drop off your clean garment at the Natty Dresser during regular business hours.
Our highly-trained alterations team will consult with you to discuss exactly what you need to have accomplished.
Alterations are performed in house, and most repairs and alterations can be completed in two weeks or less. For your convenience we serve customers in Albany, Oregon and the outlying areas of Salem, Lebanon, Corvallis, Eugene, and Springfield.

As soon as you know when your dress will arrive call and set your appointment 541-248-3561.
At your consultation the Seamstress or Tailor will give you a firm quote before any tailoring services are started.
You can expect at least 3 fitting appointments in order to get your dress fitting exactly the way you want it to.
Plan ahead, it is never too early to get your consultation appointment scheduled and on the calendar.
You've probably experienced that too-long shirt with so much material that tucking it in is nearly impossible. Or a shirts so short that lifting your arms exposes your midriff or causes your shirt to come untucked from you pants... You need the custom tailoring fit.
Off-the-rack shirts come in standard men's clothing lengths, but let’s face it — most people aren’t “standard.”
(Note: These shirts are made to measure, not bespoke, saving you time and money while providing a great fit for almost everyone.)
The Natty Dresser's shoe shine services harken back to the days when every gent would stop by the local shoe shine parlour and get his shoes cleaned and polished.
It is our desire to pay homage to the Deluxe Shoe Shine Parlour that Bessie and Rufus Hale had at the Venetian Theater building in Downtown Albany from 1939 until Bessie's death in 1993.
Our stand has an actual 1930s club chair, and authentic horse shaped cast iron foot rests. The old-growth flooring came out of a Lebanon area farm house and the carpeting on the stair treads came out of a house here in Albany. The stand itself was built from reclaimed beadboard that also came out of an Albany area home.
The purpose of shining your shoes is more than aesthetic, the wax used to create the shine is a waterproof barrier protecting the leather from the elements. You will find that you feel better about yourself and your overall appearance when your shoes are clean and polished
Whether you’ve inherited some vintage beauties or invested in fine headwear on your own, the Natty Dresser can help your care for, repair, and restore your hats to their former glory.
Many misfortunes can befall a hat. They can get crushed, folded, spindled, and mutilated from improper storage or handling.
They can experience ground-in dirt and dust from frequent use — particularly “working hats."
If you’ve inherited a hat, you might find that it’s a bit too small for your head, or it’s full of moth holes from years of storage. The lining can be soiled — or even missing.
No matter what your hat’s ailment is, the Natty Dresser is standing by with triage capabilities to get your hat back in tip-top shape.
And, while we don’t offer blocking, we do provide expert freehand hat shaping that can usually rejuvenate a misshapen and battered hat.
