Yelp Dallas Best in Business Award: Harry’s Tailor Shop

Harry’s Tailor Shop, October recipient of the Yelp Dallas Best in Busi ness award, is a cut above the rest. With over 30 years of business, the magic thread that makes up Harry’s Tailor shop extends multiple generations.

Business owner, Harry Papas, was born in Greece and grew up in a family of talented tailors. He moved to the U.S. at just 15 with limited knowledge of the English language. By age 22, Harry grabbed life by the cuffs and moved to Dallas to open his first shop.

Now, over 30 years later, Harry says the keys to good tailoring are passion and patience (his long list of loyal clients surely agree!). And growing his business was made easier thanks to the local Yelp community: “The unbelievable exposure that Yelp brings and the fact that users clearly trust its credibility is why I love Yelp.”  

Papas is known around Dallas for “expert tailoring services from extremely casual to formal wear and everything in between – working professionals, brides, students, etc.” His main objective? “Custom alterations with personal attention, because a well-tailored wardrobe is essential.” And his passion is apparent, as you’ll find him working most of the fittings himself (though he has a talented, handpicked team of 6 to exceed your needs!).

Harry’s love for Dallas runs deep, appreciating all the city has to offer and the people who live here: “Friendly, hard-working, fun-loving. Even though people have moved here from all over the world, the Texas and Big D attitude take hold and make this a great place to live and work.”

We’re proud to recognize Harry’s Tailor Shop as our October Best in Business spotlight. Next time you need to customize your closet or make that outfit a bit more flattering (or even craft a Halloween costume), we know just the place!
