First opened in September of 1983, in a small shop in West Newton, Leon Kayserian launched Chez Leon Tailoring after spending the past few years living in Paris. Leon was no stranger to custom tailoring, as he had been perfecting his craft since his teenage years. His unique, international experience, combined with his warm and friendly demeanor quickly made him a local favorite in the West Newton community. He soon complimented his tailoring with dry cleaning services for added convenience to his customers.


In 1993 Leon expanded his once small tailoring shop, to a second location in Waltham, and most recently, in 2017, a third location was opened in Newtonville. In 2015, the North Andover facility (formerly Ace Cleaners) was added to the Chez Leon family and now provides cleaning services for all four locations.
