I've had these alterations done on about 15 shirts at Ignacio's on East 60th between Park and Lex. I think it costs about $15-20 per shirt. They are quite competent, just be clear about what you want. I believe they do alterations for many stores on the East Side (Barneys, Burberry, Jay Kos, and many others).
Note: I don't think they do single-needle stitching, so if that matters to you you want to look elsewhere (although I think the side seams on T & A are not single needle anyway!).
There is another tailor, Allmeier, who is downtown and specializes in shirts. But there've been mixed things said about their customer service. Ignacio's can probably turn the shirts around in a few days if you ask nicely.
