About Us

Sonia Rivas, CEO:
Sonia is an entrepreneur that is consistently transforming the operations at Newbury Tailoring. She plays a critical role in the business and is determined to provide the Boston area with high-end luxury-style services at affordable rates.

Flavio Antonio Rivas, Master Tailor:
At the age of 7, Flavio’s father began teaching him the art of tailoring. For years now, Flavio has been putting his skills in the spotlight at Newbury Tailoring and as a result he has been named Boston’s Best Tailor by Boston Magazine — multiple times. Over the years, the shop earned local accolades for it’s exquisite needlework. Boston magazine wrote, “Only Rivas and company, given a fur-trimmed ’60s-era coat that was two sizes too big and six inches too long, came through like champs, producing a glorious brand-new garment.”

Carlos Rivas, Head Tailor:
As Flavio’s brother, Carlos also began learning the trade of tailoring from an early age as well. Always with great charm, Carlos makes it a priority to cater to his clients. There is no better combination than Flavio and Carlos.

The Rivas Family strives hard to make their clients happy. They are eager to meet you and embrace their dedication to the trade of sewing while exceeding your expectations. The talent at Newbury Tailoring is always up for challenges. They provide everything from everyday clothing repairs to high-end alterations and tailoring in flawless fashion.
