It's always going to depend on the particular tailors that work at any given store.
I've not actually bought anything tailored at a BB in a while, but have shopped at the Chestnut Hill store here in the Boston area; I was not overly impressed with their sales staff. Also, the store is pretty small and thus their suit selection is limited. VERY few Golden Fleece, no 3/2 rolls, etc. I ended up buying a couple of suits at Bloomingdales in that mall and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the tailoring done in-house there.
On the other hand, I had a great shopping experience (for shirts) at the BB on W. Adams in Chicago.
