Don't start out with anything of value. Go out and find some really cheap crappy shirts (thrifting should find a lot) and work on them.

Can anyone recommend a place to get (RRL) jeans hemmed on the UWS?

This isn't directly related to the shirts but for future reference: I used G&G for some denim also but noticed after I got home that one of the threads was already starting to slightly come undone. I dropped a couple things off at 26 Elizabeth in Chinatown and they seemed more knowledgeable and actually less expensive. Going to pick up the stuff later tonight so I'll let you know if they're any good.

Why not head to BiG?

Normally the tailor will not cut off the extra fabric (to cover their own bases) and sew it into the shirt. I had a tailor mess up on the chest and the sleeves making both too tight. I went back and told her and she fixed it free of charge.
