Tailor vs. Alterationist

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I do know a good tailor here in Boston, but I'm wondering if it's necessary to bring everything to him. He's usually quite busy. There's a dry-cleaners right in my neighborhood that advertises alterations, so I've been thinking about taking some minor work there. Repairing buttons, letting out jacket sleeves, hemming pants maybe. Is there a threshold of work that requires a real tailor?

Thanks.

Depends on the level of the place.

I have an alterations business near me that actually takes in work from tailors, because the standard of work is very good.

Plenty of not so good places around as well though...

If you are happy with the work your tailor does, and they do not mind doing it (albeit you are waiting longer for it), why not stay the course.

If you need simple alterations made (in a quicker timeline), ask your tailor to suggest someone they trusts...
