Step out in style this summer with a hand-made custom outfit from Signature Tailor of Tampa. Nothing will have you turning heads faster than your own unique wardrobe, specially designed and created just for you! Or, perhaps you have already found what you are looking for, but for some reason it just doesn’t fit you right – Signature Tailor can help with that too; as expert tailors, they can alter any clothing to perfectly fit your body.

For more than 30 years, Signature Tailor owners Sang and Mona Lee have been helping people look their best through fabulously tailored clothes and custom made creations. Mona’s impressive fashion design education includes Ewha Women’s University in Korea, Bunka College in Japan, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She studied textile, clothing, design, patterns, and pattern making throughout the world, before perfecting her tailoring skills in New York City’s fashion district. Last year, Sang and she brought their impressive talents to Tampa, opening up Signature Tailor of Tampa, located at 11901 Sheldon Road.

Custom-Made Clothing

Custom-tailored clothing provides a great deal of flexibility when it comes to your own unique style. Imagine having a suit or dress tailormade – the feeling is remarkable – knowing that what you are wearing was made just for you! Mona and Sang specialize in customized clothing for both men and women, and with their experience and knowledge, can expertly design clothing for every body type – creating garments that truly capture your individual personality and style. Whether you are coming with just an idea in your head, or have a picture of exactly what you want, they will help bring your vision to life; and, might I add, at a very reasonable price!


Ready-made clothes often create problems for many people, as they are constructed to fit the manufacturer's definition of an “average customer”; not taking into account the individuality of each body type. As the name implies, custom-made clothes, on the other hand, are made based on your specifications and measurements, thus ensuring a perfect fit every time. Mona even takes her clients’ posture into consideration when creating a garment for them. “We had many clients in New York City who wanted custom made suits and dresses,” says Mona. “Once you’ve experienced a custom fit garment, it is difficult to go back to an off-the-rack garment that rarely, if ever, fits you just right."


No matter what your size, readymade selection is always limited, and can never offer you the variety of fabrics and styles that you will find at Signature Tailor. With hundreds of fabric options available to choose from, in every weight, pattern and quality, the design options are endless; and, the best part is – they are all available to be made into your unique size. Whether you bring your own fabric, or want to peruse through their huge selection, Mona and Sang will happily assist you in turning your idea into a reality.

Dress to impress with a custom suit from Signature Tailor. When was the last time you were able to choose whether you wanted a peak or notch lapel? All this is possible, as you are in full control of what you want your suit to look like, and with your exact specifications, Mona will help design the outfit of your dream that will fit you like a dream. In addition to suits, and other clothing, Mona can also create custom wedding, prom, and special occasion dresses. There are many benefits to having suits or special occasion dress custom made – one of which is price. Why pay top dollar for expensive designer dresses and suits, when quite often enough tailor-made is much more affordable.


Mona is extremely talented at what she does, and the workmanship and handwork, as well as the materials and trimmings that go into custom made clothing at The Signature Tailor, are of exceptionally good quality. The value you will get for the price you will pay far exceeds what is available from a store.


Alterations can make all the difference in the world, taking an outfit that looks “ok” on you and transforming it into one that says “wow”! “They do perfect alterations,” writes one customer. “I highly recommend The Signature Tailor. They altered my size 6 suit to a size 4 perfectly. The best alterations I have ever had!”

Mona is an expert at altering all articles of clothing – from shirts, pants, dresses and skirts, to jackets, suits and even wedding gowns – you name it, she can do it! She also specializes in alterations of wedding dresses and prom dresses. From simple dresses, to detailed gowns with beads and lacing, she is able to handle any alteration needed.

Signature Tailor will help you look your best by providing quality alterations to any garment. Whether it’s a business suit to help you impress, a dress for a special occasion, or a great pair of jeans that are just too long, The Signature Tailor guarantees that you will be satisfied with your alternations. “Our clients satisfaction means everything to us,” says Sang.
