    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anybody knew of a good alteration tailor in the montreal area. The ones I tried weren't good enough. Right now I'm considering these two Mike Alterations HPadar I don't really want to go trough the trial and error route again (or just error in my case), does...

    Hello fellas, I was wondering how much it would cost to cut a sleeve just before the buttons and make new sleeves with working buttonholes. The jacket is entirely hand made, and already has working buttonhole. The sleeves have enough material for this operation. Dont worry about the look, just...

    Hi everyone! I've been wondering how much I could shorten my suit jacket sleeves lenght? I picked up 6 suits and 2 jackets that are like-new, they are entirely hand made and they fit me pretty well. They were all coming from the same person. The thing is; I have a large body but i'm relatively...

    Saks had a Labor day sale on Samuelsohn's suits. After putting together the 30% discount with 10% new credit card account and 10% use of new card the same day, the price of a $1300 Samuelsohn suit could be had for $735 (although alterations were not free, about $120). This was too good to...

    I've read a lot of conflicting information, so forgive me for treading on an old subject. I've got my eye on a pair of trousers (eBay) that are labeled 32" in the waist. I normally wear 30" waist pants. I know that I can get the waistband altered so that it will be smaller. However, can you...

    Is there a cost-effective way to have regular dress shirts that have pleats on the back tailored without them looking ridiculous? I have some with a box pleat in the middle and some with pleats out at the shoulder.

    Hello all, I hope this isn't a stupid question. I tried searching the web and these forums for an answer but without success, so I ask: Can you have a pair of flat front pants altered to add pleats after they are already finished? If it is possible, how difficult would it be? Basically I'm...

    I thrifted a pair of Vineyard Vines pants(trousers) this afternoon. Size 40xU, in quite possibly the most obnoxious nautical print. The problem? I am a size 32.. Does anyone have any experience with drastic size alterations? Is this something an experienced tailor would be able to handle...

    What you're looking at here is a MYSuit.com product with Thomas Pink shirt and tie. The suit has been worn a couple of times and cleaned. I have 30 days to request a free alteration. I'd like some suggestions on what I can ask them to do to make this suit a little better.

    Just a question for all of you dandys at home. Has anyone experimented with doing your own alterations? Minor stuff like jacket sleeves, hem on your pants, taking in/letting out the waist? I have no background in sewing, but am sick of paying a tailor top dollar everytime I go thrifting...

    I'm in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which isn't a huge city. The area including surrounding 'burbs is 150k-200k in total, and there are a few shops listed in the area that do alterations and whatnot. I've been diving more and more into upping the ante in style when it comes to quality and fit, but the...

    I purchased the suit in 2005, it's a MTM Hart Schaffner Marx from Nordstroms. I picked the swatches, had the measurements taken and picked it up a few months later. I have recently been dreading ever wearing it to interviews because it is so boxy and long, plus a 3 button just doesn't seem...

    Hello Gentlemen, I am a recent law grad who is just starting my legal career, and I am looking for some advice on making the best out of my current wardrobe, as well as suggestions for moving forward. I understand that fit is paramount to dressing well, and while I cannot afford a new better...

    Old threads for reference: https://askandyaboutclothes.com/community/showthread.php?t=95461 https://askandyaboutclothes.com/community/showthread.php?t=93249 I just received a new suit and top coat from a Hong Kong tailor. The first suit from a new tailor can be hit or miss, but both items are...

    I have a 4x1 navy double-breasted suit that I've been bequeathed. Like all my suits (and other clothes) it's now too big following a couple of years of steady weight loss. Having them taken in by an alterations tailor has been pretty successful, and I won't wear this particular suit again while...

    Hi there, I have a gray fedora that I purchased in New York about nine or ten years ago, but have rarely worn since. I love the craftsmanship, but I think the brim is too wide for my face. Are there any shops in the San Jose-San Francisco area that the Ask Andy regulars can recommend to narrow...

    Hey all, I just wanted to post a quick greeting to the group. I'm officially a n00b, but I've been "lurking" for a couple of years, to my great benefit. There's a fair number of really knowledgeable people here, and I apologize in advance for not being one of them. Speaking of (and to) the...

    Hi all, I have recently purchased a suit for my wedding. The shop uses Leon for their alterations. Does anyone on the forum have any experience with them? I adore the suit and want to ensure that the person that alters the suit does a good job. Since alterations by Leon are included in the...

    I have recently discovered a fantastic tailor, and thought I'd share this with AAAC. Kent Loe opened Kent's Fashion House at 1596 Third Ave., between 89th -90th Sts. more or less a year ago. I recently purchased several suits and sportcoats at BB's "warehouse" sale and decided to give Kent a...
