I have been to Decaro twice but in the two visits I have paid almost $600 to have two jackets shortened, a pair of trouser let out and shortened and a pair of trousers taken in and had the leg tapered. The work on the jacket was acceptable but the rest of the work was not very well done so I am looking for recommendations...

Hopefully it'll turn out ok, however, after reading your post, I'm somewhat more inclined to try out ModernTailor.com The biggest drawback of online tailors is the lack of access for alterations, etc. If you in SoCal, you can go to their location any time and be remeasured, arrange...

No, seriously. Noel Coward? Uh, Private Lives? Design for Living? Am I getting warmer? How about a clue? Three words... first word, two syllables ... sounds like moo. No, sounds like foo! Blithe Spirit? I don't know what that's about. Actually, I don't know any of these plays. I barely know Noel Coward -- I was an engineering major in college.
