Tailoring and alteration services
with a 100-year legacy.

Joe Ziker first opened a tailoring shop in 1917 on Michigan Street in downtown South Bend. Three generations later, his grandson David Ziker is bringing tailoring services back to the family’s Ziker Cleaners locations with a new brand that reflects on the past and looks forward.

Experienced, committed tailors.

Joe Ziker emigrated from Russia to the United States, alone and as a teenager in the early 1900s. He soon opened his tailoring shop and began to build a life and family here.

Over the past several years, we have recruited a team of tailors who share his commitment and have the experience to get the job done right.

Do you like looking sharp for work, or dressing up for a night out on the town? You will feel your best when your clothes fit right.

Let Joe Z’s tailoring and alterations services lend a hand–you will feel your best when your clothes fit right. Bring your men’s, woman’s, or children’s garments in for a free consult to customize your fit. Our pricing is competitive and turnaround time on most jobs is very reasonable.

Tailors working Monday to Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM, and by appointment
