Could people chime in with rough cost for typical suit alterations at Wilfred's, Alexis, and Peppino's? For example: 8 buttons (handsewn or machinesewn) Taking a little in the waist of the coat Hemming pants and taking an inch or so out of the waist of the pant Last time I did this at a place called Hong Kong Tailor Jack (with to my untrained eye, pretty good results), ran me about $100 a suit. Â Just curious what it runs at these various places. Thanks
Picked up the "custom" suit from alexis last week. The fit on the jacket is very good. Cant tell if they cut a direct pattern for me or alterted a "set" pattern based on my measurements. 2 quick try ons. he put a holland and shrry super 120's label inside the jacket but i thought i selected a "clayton" or "mason" fabric...mmmmm Pants seem a bit "square" and not truly custom made but maybe cut from a standard shape. They just dont seem to fit great. I may take them back to be altered but having a bit of difficultly figuring out what exactly is wrong. they only look funny from the front. Sort of like a box on a skinny guy.. Overall quality is good, but im not an expert. The hallmarks on the interiors such a wondeful little stiches, too die for silk linings etc. are not there but at this price range you are looking for fit not kiton. Overall a very very nice fit but will not rush to do it again and may try trajudo or gilberto.....chan awaits as well...

My alterations at Peppino mentioned earlier were 8 handsewn sleeve button holes, and hemming the trousers and jacket sleeves. I believe the waist was alright, but there might have been a small alteration there too. No other coat alterations. Total cost: $66.
i dropped a suit off at Peppino's last week. was quoted $175 for the following alterations: pants recut jacket waist taken in jacket shortened sleeves shortened collar dropped this seemed reasonable given what i have been charged at Wilfred's. i just dropped in without an appointment. the older gentleman that did the fitting was very attentive. going in tomorrow for a fitting to see how the pants came out; i'll post about the results once everything is done..
after my recent terrible experience at Peppino's i was curious as to who you might reccomend for some alterations to a suit i just purchased. i need the following done and do not want to break the bank:
sleeves shortened w/ working button holes
pants waist taken out
and shortened (w/ cuffs)
thank you so much (location is not really an issue - just somewhere in manhattan)
and just for reference at Peppino i used to be quoted around $100-$125 for these alterations
