San Francisco Alterations tailor

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
Hello, I know this question has been asked in the past, but it's been a few years so I am curious if anyone knows of a first-rate alterations tailor in San Francisco, or even the general Bay Area. I have been using Seymours and would like to explore some other options.

Thanks for the help.

Franz Custom Tailors, 166 Geary, is the best in the area IMO. 415-986-2044.

Thank you Will. I'll look into Franz. Has anyone had experience with Oxford Tailors?

I've had experience with both and I'd go to Franz if I needed alterations.

What's the going rate for hemming pants in the city?

I should know but I haven't payed attention to the price my existing tailor charges per item, i just see the total amount. I'm guessing that it is around $15 for each adjustment done on average as I typically pay $25-30 per clothing article brought in and I have couple of adjustments done to each. For suits it is probably closer to $50-$100 total cost depending on how much work is done.

But for hemming pants, I think I am charged $12-15 per leg.

Tell him you will pay 15.00 if he will angle the hem making the back longer than the front. smile.gif

I have used Oxford dozens of times for alterations and I always had a great experience.

I use Ricardo's in Sunnyvale - living in San Jose it can be difficult to get up to the city. I've had good experiences with Ricardo. I had him narrow the shoulders on an Isaia and it came out fantastic. Be sure to wear in a suit that fits well to show him where you want the cuffs / hems though. I guess that is good practice for all tailors.

ah yes, thanks for the reminder, Chris.

Thanks for the Ricardo's recommendation. Closer to Silly Corn Valley, seems to be worth a look and timely. New Oxxford SC needs some expert thread work. Surgeon cuffs with contrasting thread color. Navy blazer, thinking of purple thread for one button hole..maybe burgundy.

Andrea Asciutto of Andrea's Fine Tailoring in Millbrae is very competent, friendly, and reasonably priced. But he can be a little slow, since he's really busy and so friendly. He's from Sicily and shares typical SF preferences.

Can cuffs be angled? My tailor says he can angle a hem, but not one with a cuff.
