Maybe you should stick to Hugo Boss. $600 is a steal for a PRL MII suit, and the alteration cost is average.

Like I said they are great suits. My complaint was that the RL store will overcharge you with alterations. When I went there they wanted something like $150-200 for alterations and I said if you cannot do them for a more reasonable price I will not buy the suit. Turns out I did not.

I'm curious as to what was suggested to you for alterations. The figure alone is meaningless without knowing that information.

Mind you we have no idea of how well or how poorly the suit was fitting you OTR. I've never had to do more than $75 in alterations to one and I usually go overboard tapering the pants, letting the waist for braces, tapering the jacket, bringing up the sleeves, ect.

You do realize that you could just buy the suit and bring it to your own tailor, right?

Yep, but it was the principle.

In fairness to the cheapskate, supra, Brooks Brothers just altered two suits for $50 for me: hemmed pants, let out trousers, brought in/let out jackets, shortened left sleeve on each. Pretty good deal, I think.

im in san diego


also lol at the guy for complaining about $200 for alterations.

I looked at the pricing sheet at the RL store and it wasnt expensive for alterations by any means.

Agreed. I've brought RL suits that I bought at department stores to the RL store for alterations since they were a better price than either the store I bought them at or my tailor. All I usually do is hem the pants and have working buttonholes added.

I was referring to the guy who originally posted about the DC area stores.
