Are there any forum members that can recommend a decent tailor for some relatively complex alterations in the Montreal area? Eg. Completely redoing the cuffs on a jacket (velvet) that were too shortened previously (there is enough fabric- I unpicked them myself to check). Changing a 40 L to a 40 R (1 1/2" off the sleeves and 1" off the bottom). And less complex but still important:- Standard nips and tucks to reduce the waist (I have broad shoulders but a thin frame so most jackets in my size have to much space around the belly). Not to mention the ability to sew a damn button on correctly... ...it's no longer funny the amount of time I have had to return a blazer because the buttons were not attached in line or they were sewn on sideways or upside down. You would think that with seemingly a tailor on each corner in this city you would be able to find some one that could do a basic job with out screwing up; but I have exausted the recommedations of my (better dressed) collegues and don't want to use the trial and error method to find another tailor who is incapable of doing what is asked of him on the first shot. Thanks in advance.
