Lost 10-15 pounds. Suit pants HUGE. Need reasonably priced NYC tailor?

Title pretty much says it all. All of my suit pants look completely absurd now. I hope they can be fixed.

just your pants? what about your jackets. Depending on your starting size, 10-15 pounds less should be an easy fix for the pants. I am assuming you need no more than 2 inches or so taken in at the waist. If you started at a 36 and are now a 34, no real problem. If you started at a 34 and are now a 30, don't waste your money, taking in pants more than 1-2 inches is asking for problems.

I don't think it will be more than 2 inches but the entire pant needs to be redone. The legs even seem way too big now. I might need a little done to the jackets as well. My weight is always fluctuating by about 10-15 pounds and because I'm short (5'5) a small fluctuation makes a HUGE difference. It always seems to come from my waist.

this is a tough situation. If your weight is always fluctuating, it's tough to go out and make things smaller and then possibly have hem be too small. Also, recutting things is typically a worse choice than going out and buying something new. The waist is one thing, but if you have to also do the legs and then the rise, it becomes an expensive proposition and the end result may not be to your liking.

If your weight is always fluctuating, keep what you have (for later), and purchase some new clothes for your current weight.

Well, I am making an effort to stay at this weight. Since I will be poor until October/November, only having clothes that fit when I'm slim will be excellent motivation

He will do any work you can think of, to a good-enough standard, for a good price. Don't take your Attolini there, but do take a suit that needs the sleeves off to reduce the shoulders and chest, the legs narrowed and the seat recut.
