When I went to pick up my suit jacket around closing time, he hemmed my pants in 20 minutes while we had a nice convo and charged me $14. Pretty good, if I may say so myself, for express service like that!
For suit jackets, I think his quotes were about $18-24 for sleeve shortening and about $28-45 for side take-in. Really good prices, especially for the quality of Mr. Chong's work. He's reserved, but very nice and will listen to whatever you request and really takes the time to measure everything.

No prob. Yea, I figured you lived in DC.
Looks like there's a good number of tailors in DC with good ratings, too. Maybe give some of these guys a call or go in and check out their shops:http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc...shington%2C+dc
