I also have experience dealing with Kim; she is great and will do whatever it takes to make her customers happy.
I also agree that Sydney seems to farm out most of his alteration work to Studio Kim.
I've seen Shipley & Halmos shirts and suits there waiting to be altered, which presumably came from his shop, and in my experience when I used to take things to sydney to be altered, they would come back with the same tags that Kim uses...
Kim is great anyway though, so I just go to her now!
