Footwear

Standard Clean & Polish
Our introductory polish and/or cleaning will make your footwear look like new. We refresh everything from exclusive trainers to high-end suede boots.
– Starting at $30
Specialized Cleaning
We clean the interior and exterior of footwear ranging from high-end sneakers to leather and suede boots and designer heels. We pride ourselves in bringing new life to your footwear favourites 
and increasing the longevity of your most beloved shoes.
– Starting at $60
Weatherproofing
Protect your favourite footwear from the elements with our signature water repellent products. Application is done in thin layers to eliminate any unintended spray marks.
– Starting at $25
Reheels and Toe Pieces
Fashionistas know that the end of a high heel and the toe piece wears down much quicker than the rest of a shoe. Let us replace your heel cap, heel block, and/or do a mini resole at the shoe’s tip, so your favourite heels look as new on the bottom as they do on the top.
– Starting at $35
Heel Refinishing & Recovery
From heels that have scratched or marked due to grass or gravel to those that have actually snapped, we can recover, and match shape, slope, and height of your original heel.
– Starting at $125
Resole
Full and partial resoles can restart your footwear’s life expectancy. This process also includes a re-heel. (Note: This process will remove any embossed branding on the 
original sole.)
– Starting at $80
Elastic Refresh
Tiny strips of elastic between ankle straps and buckles are easily broken on delicate shoes and sandals. We will source and then hand-stich to replace with the closest possible match in size, colour and material to the original.
– Starting at $90
Colour Restoration
From colour fade to scratches we can restore the original hues to your favourite shoes, while maintaining their beloved details.
– Starting at $120
New Life to Satin Shoes
Whether you are dyeing satin shoes for a wedding or event or giving them a second 
life, our dyeing services can match swatches to re-invent a new shoe or conceal an 
unclean-able stain.
– Starting at $125

Handbags

Restorative Cleaning
We refresh your bags’ interior and exterior 
using special techniques to remove most 
stains, while maintaining the integrity of your beloved handbag.
– Starting at $95
Remake Tabs or Loops
Little material loops hold straps, buckles and other components together. When they break, we simply make you a new one — matching everything as close as possible to the original or even sourcing the original material direct
– Starting at $60
Re-Edging
The paint along the edges of cut leather can 
dry and crack over time. We will smooth the 
old edge, and reapply colour-matched paint by hand for perfect results.
– Starting at $100
Recover Piping
We conceal any piping that has become visible from the corners of your favourite bag, while maintaining the external shape, using hand-moulded surface and colour 
restoration techniques.
– Starting at $160
Remake Top Binding
The binding on a bag is the narrow strip of leather or fabric folded over an edge to provide a finished, decorative effect. When it tears or wears down, we can replace it in whole or in part with as close as possible a match to the original.
– Starting at $175
Stitching
From loose stitching to complex breaks, we will choose an exact shade of thread to make it look as though the damage was never there.
– Starting at $70
Zipper Replacement
We can replace zippers of almost all sizes, from those for wallets and side pockets to top closures. We’ll source the closest possible match in size, colour, material and zip teeth. To do this, we must carefully remove the old zipper and restitch in a new one (often by hand), taking care to line up everything perfectly.
– Starting at $90
Remake Handles and Straps
When handles and straps break, we can remake them to their original splendor, matching as close as possible to the original style and colour.
– Starting at $275
Colour Restoration & Change
From colour fade to scratches, we infuse colour to restore the original hues to your favourite handbag while maintaining their beloved details. If you’re up for a change, we can recolour to a darker hue.
– Starting at $150

Clothing & Alterations

We specialize in high-end alterations and tailoring services. Decades of experience working with a range of fabrics gives us unique insight into how a fabric drapes across the body and also how it will wash and wear. We take these factors into consideration to ensure that each item is hand-crafted to fit you to perfection.

Please call 416-413-7900 to book an appointment at our 1560 Yonge Street location (Yonge and St. Clair) or ask about our options for in-home service.
