After I see the item you like to alterate I tell you first if I goin to do ( if I thing do not come better the new I not go to toch) than price wich dipend in what you look for.
E.g : A pant Waist e Seat in or out can be $ 15.00 charge - Same pant which need professional attention as, 2" waist in Seat OK .will be $ 100.00. That avoid what atletic figure ,in do take in waist front pocket open.

For those who look for a good Bespoke M.T.M suit I strongly reccomend Harry Rosen ,Toronto Bloor St.-- On Feb. 10 ,2011 I meet Harry Rosen , he proudly show me a bespoke jacket in the window was a peace of Art. Then he took me to see the tailor shop where was done, that was the best present I receved in that trip to Toronto. Was there more of five good tailors working on jacket in to look them my main back when jongher I worked in very good tailor shops in Milano.
In the nex room where those who work on pant . Thanks to Harry Rosen the art of tailoring no go to finish.

For those who can pay the price : On harry Rosen Store in Bloor St. Mr Jason Green show me a Tom Ford suit - SARTORIALE - That suit theserve the name SARTORIALE. I do reccomend to those who whant to be different , whom in the suit look for personality and style, not just cover your self. What I state come from my love to the tailoring work

What is the name of the tailor in Oakridge? It's like a 15min walk from where I live and a mall I don't mind because it's rarely so packed with annoying loitering teens like Metrotown.

People keep mentioning a good one, I'd like to know which one it is, just for reference, since I might be needing one very soon.

If you're referring to Oakridge Tailors, it's Bill and Joy, although I've never met Joy. They're not in the mall, but really close on Cambie.

I've been to Oakridge Tailors a few times over the past year, and recently went there to get some of my shirt sleeves shortened. They charged $25 a shirt to shorten the sleeves which includes moving the placket, and another $25 to slim the sleeves a bit. Not the cheapest in town (any suggestions on who would be?), but I got it done anyway. I find that Bill and Joy are both super nice, and their work is good, although you have to be firm in what you want, because sometimes they will disagree with your request. In my case, they thought my sleeves were of adequate length, but I wanted to take off a full inch, to which they thought it would be too short, but that's how I wanted them done. Keep in mind that judging from the racks of clothes, looks like they're very busy of late.

I bought these 2 nice polo shirts a while back (short sleeve polo's from Ralph Lauren to be precise) and have wanted to get them to tailored to fit better for a while (6yrs lol) so I might as well get that tailored by the Oakridge folks and see how much that runs me.

Hey styleforum,

 

I took a lot from the earlier posts and decided to pass on my newly purchased Hickey suit to Oakridge Tailors. I spoke to William and Joy there and they seem to be good people who know what they are doing. The finished result is yet to be seen.

 

While I have seen Hickey on GILT, I thought that it would be too great a risk to purchase it online. But when I went to the states, I found a Hickey 36S at Saks OFF 5TH store. It fit better than anything else they had there and overall is a slimmer cut for a size 36 (I usually fit size 34 suits quite well).

 

I took it to Oakridge Tailors today and they suggested to take in the back of the suit and to hem the pants. The quoted $60 for the work done on the back and $20 for the pant hem + tape.

 

 

They promised the suit back in 1.5 weeks. Fingers crossed!
