Tailoring help - metro d.c. area

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a suit (Hield?) from Off 5th Avenue with unfinished jacket sleeves. I've had no luck finding a tailor who can/will do jacket sleeve buttonholes. Does anyone know of a tailor that can do this kind of work? Many thanks.

Try Field English Tailors on Wisconsin.

How did the tailoring go and if you dont mind, how much did they charge? I need to get a few suits tailored, and have been using the tailor at montgomery mall for between $80 per suit. So far so good, but then again I want to make sure to get the best job on my new ones. Scot

I second Field's. They do very good work in my experience. I also like the fact that they don't just say, OK that's what you want, we'll do it. If they think something would work better another way, or have a suggestion about fit, etc., they speak up. I like that. Another option though is Geoffrey Lewis, Ltd. on H btw. 14th and 15th. They do some of my easier alterations; however, they also did working buttons for me on three suits. IIRC, they charged me $80 per suit.

I went to Geoffrey's. I'm not sure what the exact cost breakdown was but for $345 this was the work done: - working buttonholes on 2 suits - sleeves lengthen on one jacket - Jacket taken in on the sides - waist taken in/pants cuffed on 2 suits I'm pretty satisfied with the work. Just wish sleeves were 1 1/4" longer. Ken
