First he complained that the sleeves needed to be different lengths so the buttons wouldn't be even. Said he would have to move them up. And this was apparently time consuming work, and he didn't have the machine to re-do the fake button holes. Could he shorten by the sleeves I ask? He laughs at me and says no, that's a serious job that he doesn't do because it's not worth it, too time consuming, places charge $500 for that kind of work. I'm fairly confident this is completely wrong because it is, but I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because I needed the work done. Ended up leaving to think it over while trying to find another place.
I googled to research prior to going to Flavio, and two names came up, Flavio, and Enzo(via velvel's post). Had to drive about 25 minutes to Enzo's place but wow what a difference. Friendly, knowledgeable, at first glance he could already tell Flavio's markings were off. Enzo gave me a cheaper price and quicker turnaround time than Flavio, and said that shortening the sleeves from the shoulder would have been about $100. Oh, and he was more than happy to replace the pant button loops with adjustable side tabs if there was enough fabric from the pants, which Flavio flat out said no to.
I'll try to post again when I pick up my stuff from Enzo, I'm confident it will turn out well.

Did it turn out well with Enzo?

Turned out great. Simple job, shortening the sleeves/pants, but the measurements and work came out perfectly. I'll be going back soon

Nice shop in a nice area: Carlos Coto at Summit Tailors.
Unfortunately he already blew one deadline that he set himself. Now it is suppose to happen this week. I will update this thread with my impressions. He is taking in thighs and seat on a pair of trousers and taking a jacket in a little on the sides. I have seen reviews of his shop , overwhelmingly positive, and have my hope so far.

Carlos was apologetic about timeline. He was attentive during my fitting and offered to fix fit of my jacket that was off due to my uneven shoulders.
The trousers were fitted perfectly , thighs and crotch were taken in so there is no extra fabric in those places.
I could not be happier with trousers fit.

On second try Carlos fixed my jacket fit somewhat . It is RTW jacket and he made it to look as best as possible . The issue was my uneven shoulders. He did not charge me for that second adjustment ,saying he wants to make it fit right , which I appreciated.
Overall very positive experience, nice work and very nice gentleman.
Highly recommend.
