Yeah, SZ has that, I'm planning on doing something similar eventually but theirs is pretty comprehensive for this community's interests.

And this place got 5 star rating. About to give my first Yelp review and "1 star." The dudes were super friendly and accommodating but I guess it was for the lack of skills. Partially my fault, but the overall job is really shotty. Kind of bummed. It was a really nice jacket. And being a member on SF and appreciating clothes, the details, construction, "how-to" etc. makes me more upset when looking at the sleeve. Ugh. I guess I'm just going to wear and beat the shit out of the jacket for all its worth..

Doesn't help you any, but I had a pair of suit trousers taken in at Magic Tailor in Toronto, which has universally positive reviews, and they did a really sloppy job with ugly stitching that doesn't even look as though it has any point and an obvious gap.

I would be more than furious if it weren't in the crotch of the trousers where attention hopefully will not be focused in a business setting, but I will never take anything to that place again, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the next thing I need altered.

I do everything myself. With the eBay store, I even pack it and ship it myself,” he said, before pausing and thinking about this for a second. “Actually, I don’t drive myself. I have a driver.

Good to know this about Magic Tailor. I've almost taken a few things there, but will probably avoid them for now. I knew you were in Canada, but I didn't realize you were in the Toronto area! If you can make it out to Vaughan/Woodbridge there's a few good old school Italian tailors still in the area. Figliano Tailors is where I used to go (cash only though, so come prepared). As a bonus I think Snowman is in that area so you could grab some Italian sandwiches with him too smile.gif

FYI that was my first alteration with them, so my one bad experience shouldn't eclipse all the good ones; but since I have no idea if "the new guy" did it, I do not intend to return.

There was a discussion of Alian Designs in MC some time ago, he's fairly near me on Yonge, so I may give him a shot next.
post #86202 of 109053
at this point i pin my own stuff when getting alterations. just drop it off and say 'do this'.
post #86203 of 109053
I only occasionally hem pants, anything else and I feel that I am affecting what the piece was supposed to be so I skip it and find something else

Very true. Same goes for cobblers.
