Did you just bring home the sweetest new slacks only to discover that it hangs a tad too low? Don’t relegate this find to the closet; just drop it in your Alex’s bag with a note about what you need. We’ll hem it so it sits on you just right.

We do everything from buttons to zippers, hemming to taking in, shortening and removing unwanted pockets.

House calls also available. Call (415) 457-8002 to request rate information or a pickup.

st. john

Blocking - St. Johns Knits

You found the perfect St. John piece. Unfortunately, all knits- no matter how expensive-distort with wearing and cleaning. We restore your knitted piece to its desired shape by pre-measuring and professionally blocking. Our blocking brings back the original size- the one that fits you just right.

wedding gowns

Wedding Gowns

You’ll never forget the day you strode down the aisle in your Vera Wang original. And why should you? Thanks to Alex’s unique way of preserving fragile textiles, your gown will stay as fresh as when you first slipped into it. (Before the Dom Pérignon bubbled over, that is. Don’t worry, when we’re done, you won’t see a drop.)

Using the same techniques as museum conservators, we wrap your cleaned wedding gown in muslin and place it in an archival chest. Throughout the years you can safely remove your gown and share its beauty with others. Or you can gaze at your preserved treasure on your own, twirling through time to that splendid day.

Table Linen

When it comes to entertaining, you have enough details to consider. Let us worry about removing that dash of Merlot and steaming the wrinkles out of your table linens.

Bed Linens

We press sheets the old fashioned way: by hand. Your expensive Frette linens will never be pulled and tugged through a rolling machine. With our gentle treatment, your finely embroidered linens will last much longer.

Our patented soap is just as gentle as your treatment. At Alex's Dry Cleaning Valet, tired of the industry’s typical harsh chemicals, we came up with our own product: Alex’s soap. Our gentle detergent is made of the highest grade materials available. This effective product is specially designed to prolong fabric life and maintain your clothes original color. Our detergent makes your clothes softer than ever.

This commercial grade, gentle touch detergent is also available for home use. Visit our Alex’s soap page for immediate delivery.
