Maybe try Berdj's tailoring on Manhattan Beach boulevard. I had some success with him a few years ago.

Thanks. Where do you go for tailoring?

A very hit or miss place in Culver City on Pico near work. Can't think of the name right now. Would love to find someone better/closer, although my tailoring needs aren't great right now.

@StanleyVanBuren recommended George's in a couple threads, so I checked it out.  Not sure if SVB is still going, but I've been using George the past couple years and he's done a lot of work for me - from pants being hemmed, to the seat taken out, darts put in shirts, sleeves shortened etc - for the most, think it is solid work, I'd give him a B+/A- overall.

Pico goes through Culver City? puzzled.gif

If we're expanding our recommendations outside the South Bay (nothing to suggest there, I'm afraid - grew up there but haven't had any tailoring done there since the prom), I'll note I'm still a fan of Enzo Caruso in Santa Monica. Excellent work, super-nice guy. Just don't take anything to him that you need back quickly, because he works very slowly and has a very relaxed way with estimated completion dates.

We were swanning around on the 100 block of South La Brea Avenue yesterday, where stores seems to be coming and going at a quicker rate than they usually do.  We went into Kelly Cole at 175 South La Brea (a store that we hadn't been in before) and I found a bronze statue of me in a past life. (It wasn't for sale. It was a display item.)


We always meet interesting people when we are on the 100 block of South La Brea.  Here are some people who we met yesterday.


Since this is the Los Angeles Shopping + Dining thread, we ate at Cafe Midi in American Rag again yesterday.  Although there are several places to eat in the area, we always go there because we both like it there.

The wife and I went to Gjelina in Venice last week for breakfast. We absolutely loved it. Will definitely be going back.

Yeah I love that place.  Try Gjusta as well (same owners, although there's no where to really sit down).

That's by design. My understanding is that they have a permit that allows for a carry-away counter but not seating. They sort of fudge it with the milk crates and such in the courtyard.
