When I patronized a shop in your area, the tailor would alter the shirts I purchased from them gratis. Alas, they are long since gone as well their excellent tailor.being in the NYC region i cringe a little each time i need to get my shirt taken in just a bit. usually relatively costly. curious what you typically/are comfortable paying for such basic alterations?
+1. In reading this thread, it occurs to me that for years I've perhaps been taking for granted that I have such an easy to fit torso, allowing me to buy shirts with the correct neck and sleeve size without having to make alterations to them. I didn't realize I was so blessed in that regard. Now I know.How about buying shirts that don't need to be taken in? Is that an option for you?
