Al Ozer was just named one of “The Four BEST Tailors in America” in the September Issue of Details Magazine. Although he’s performed surgery on a number of my garments, I had never had the pleasure of meeting the “man behind the thread.” That changed last Sunday (Oct. 9), when one of my favorite local boutiques (& the place that turned me onto him), had a congratulatory meet ‘n greet for him.
Al is a charming man from Turkey who had an unlikely early start to tailoring – he was answering an ad - looking for an apprentice gig in plastics but landed up in a tailor’s shop. Fast forward several decades – he has a shop in America, Lizon Tailors (located on 10905 Venice Blvd.) and is now famous! Go Figure or Go Sew!!
