+1 to reveal the Menlo Park tailor. I've been looking for a good tailor in the Palo Alto area.

Given there isn't a dry cleaner of any competence in PA area (and finding one in SF took yrs of experimentation after many useless recomms from alleged clothes-oriented people, like transgender sales?people at local stores), don't expect any tailors of competence anywhere in SF region

Many inefficiencies of markets for one's mundane sartorial maintenance needs in one of world's two wealthiest regions (along w/similarly mockable Manhattan and Greenwich)

I've had good luck with Jon over the years. He is slow, though.

John the fashion tailor in Oakland is pretty good for alterations. I've been impressed with his work and he's very affordable. Apparently he won't do working button holes on jackets, but for basic alternations, I've found him extremely competent.

How about for altering a new blazer (i.e. waist suppression, sleeves, etc)?

Since this is the most recent thread I could find on East Bay tailors, I figured I'd bump it in hopes of getting the latest information. I'm in Berkeley and hoping to find a tailor to do some work on a new suit... Just the basic stuff a new suit needs (a bit of waist suppression, tweaks around the armholes, pants hemmed, etc).

Is there anyone who comes to mind? I'd like someone I can trust to guide me, since I'm not an expert in these matters, and who does good work consistently. I'll make the trip to the city if its necessary, but I'd prefer to avoid the $15 in Bart fare.

Thanks!

Gus,

 

Did you ever find a decent EB tailor? I'm in Orinda and need one as well. Berkeley would be easiest - SF is not impossible. Looking for quality work on slimming pants and decreasing size of ankle opening. My pants are all MTM products I bought in Japan and I'm wary of having them botched.

 

Thanks
