post #43306 of 51418

Suggestions for a tailor/cobbler/drycleaner/barber in (east) Atlanta? Looking for both a good tailor for more difficult alterations and a quick, cheap one for easy jobs like hemming pants.

Hong Kong Tailors (think they just changed their names to HKT Custom Clothing or something) has done a good job for tailoring for me, they are at the NE corner of the perimeter. Pricey though, $55 to take the waist of a jacket in, $30 to shorten sleeves and $15 to hem pants. I'm trying to look for alternatives at the moment.

I live 15 minutes NE of the perimeter so the dry cleaner and shoe guy would probably be a little far for someone closer to the city.

That's almost right around the corner from me, I'll have to check them out. Those prices aren't too terrible either, I was paying $20-25 for sleeves and $10-12 for pants with my old tailor.

There' are two main tailors who have pretty different styles. Neil is a bigger guy who likes things more on the "fashion" side, trimmer, shorter, less break while George is more traditional. You kind of have to be vocal about what you want or they'll just do their thing without really asking your preference. If you're close to Buckhead I'd give Bennies shoes a look. Haven't gotten anything done there personally but they've been at it for a while and have heard good things. I go to a place called Old Alabama Shoe Repair which has been good so far but may be a hike from where you are

Some very nice hermes on thread lately

Not really thrift related but I know some of you are furniture gurus and the thread is Sunday slow so whatever.
We are looking into some new living room furniture (sofa, in particular.) and we like a lot of the MCM stuff from West Elm but I know nothing about furniture besides what I like aesthetically. Anyone know if their construction is decent and if not, have a maker they would recommend in the same price range (trying to stay under 3K) Feel free to PM with opinions, rants or otherwise. Thanks!

Join HKT Custom Clothiers as we launch our new brand and celebrate the completion of our store renovation.  

This exciting day out will feature free style assessments, bourbon tastings, a cigar-smoking workshop, and a Tesla experience.  

The event is free to attend.

Someone posted a link recently on how to determine the size of a shoe when the size was worn off. Does anyone remember what the website was?
