Altering polo shirts

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How competent does a tailor have to be to alter a polo shirt, and how much should I expect to pay? I'm mostly thinking things like taking in the waist/hips, as even my slimmer fitting polos seem to flare out at the hips after a couple of washes. I doubt it's the way I'm washing them... cold/cold, flat air dry, etc.

Most tailors refuse to work on knits like polos and tees. If they do, they will charge a ridiculous amount, like $10 per operation, e.g. $10 to take in the sides, another $10 to shorten the length, another $10 to shorten the sleeves. It's hopeless.

Reviving this thread for a related question... can polo shirts be darted in the back? And if so, would that look ridiculous? I'm not sure how darts would play with something with a straight hem.

I'm finding that even with "slim fit" polos I have the same problem I have with dress shirts, in that there's excess fabric in the waist and lower back which tends to make my midsection look rather billowy.

Darts would look silly. I've had polos taken in for a small amount of money. It depends on whether they have the machines, I think.
