With pants, what can be tailored and what is the cost?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

By reading SF I tried out one of the suggestions of buying cheap shirts at Nordstrom Rack and having them tailored. This worked very well for me. I just made sure the collar and shoulders fit well. To add darts and slim up the shirt it cost $30. I'm assuming if I would need to adjust the sleeve length it would be an additional $10 or so.

 

Anyway with pants, what do I need to look out for? I'm guessing waist size must be a good match. What is the cost to slim up the pant legs, hemming, etc.

 

I'm trying to fill out a business casual wardrobe. Currently I have one MTM pair of wool pants from Thick As Thieves. They fit nicely and cost $150 per pair. But I'm wondering if there might be a better alternative. Maybe a Brooks Brothers outlet would have higher quality fabrics and I can just pay for the tailoring to get them under $150? Any tips would be appreciated.

Also I just wanted to note that I am a slim guy (5'9", 150 lbs but athletic-looking if that makes sense). Extra Slim Fit shirts from BB are still slightly too baggy on me. I'm not sure if there are any RTW brands that would fit well straight off the rack, but if there are some brands in my price range, I'm all ears.

A bit off topic, but if you need to have the sleeves shortened significantly (> ~1" or so) they'll probably have to move the placket, which will cost more ($20-$30)
