About the Business

Our Story

Award-winning A Plus Tailor was founded in Calgary, Alberta in 1979. Sam Gobran moved to Calgary from Ontario with dreams of following the footsteps of his uncle in starting his own tailor shop. He achieved that, and more. From tailoring the suits of the 2012 & 2013 Coaching Staffs of the Canadian World Junior Hockey Team to becoming the go-to repairman of professional motorcycle racers such as Tim Johnson, Sam has certainly seen it all. 

Sam's talent caught the eye of the Calgary Herald. Check out the article they wrote on him for more info on his story and work.

"I took my riding gear into Sam and it had some pretty nasty holes and rips in it from a crash. Sam looked it over carefully and said he could fix it. I picked it up and wow, amazing work. The material and craftsmanship are top-notch. My gear is actually better now than it was originally. Sam really is a craftsman at his work... I found Sam very easy to deal with and a very honest man. I highly recommend him and give him five stars. Thank you Sam!!"

"I would like to extend my thanks to Sam at A-Plus Tailor. When I first met Sam, I was so distraught at the tear to my leather jacket... I thought there would be no way to fix the jacket until I took it to Sam. He was able to fix the tear, and after he did, the original tear was no longer noticeable. I was extremely happy with the work. As a result, I have been going to Sam for two and a half years. I have recommended him to my mother and husband who also appreciate his work. Sam is not the cheapest in town, but in my opinion, he is worth it."

"I brought in a coat I found at a thrift store and Sam completely rebuilt it, tailored to me. He has the eye of a designer. I was blown away. His prices are a bit higher than other tailors, but your paying for quality and care. If you have clothes you really care about or need more intricate work done (not just hemming jeans) this place is where you want your alterations completed."
