Tommy's Tailoring Charlotte, NC - History


At just nine years old, Tommy Rigas apprenticed in tailoring and earned the status as a Master Tailor at the unbelievable young age of 16 years old. In 1969, Tommy left Greece to live in the United States, where Tommy worked alongside other Master Tailors in Maryland. Tommy met Antonia and married in 1972. Tommy and Antonia soon moved to Charlotte in 1980 and opened Tommy’s Tailoring together in the Southpark area, where it still remains today. They worked side by side for 28 years until Tommy’s passing.

Tommy’s Tailoring has built a solid reputation in the Charlotte community and is known for their precision, quality, and dedication to customers and their clothing.

Family has always been an important value to both Tommy and Antonia. This is apparent anytime you walk into the shop and find multiple members of the Rigas family working together inside.

Antonia continues today what she and Tommy had started together in 1980 with the same integrity and work ethic that has always been Tommy's Tailoring.
