Greetings everyone, this is my first post here on these forums. I have been watching quite alot of videos on youtube about men's style and have been improving my wardrobe ever since. So I know I needed a tailor and I live in the middle of nowhere on the east coast. I wanted to find a tailor that was local and cheap but did a good job. Well I found the cheap part (She has a tailoring business that isn't a part of a dry cleaners and charges like $5 for taking in a shirt and $5 for slimming arms and $10 for hemming pants) So anyway, I brought her one shirt like videos suggest and I guess I didn't see anything wrong so I brought her 5 shirts. These are just my Jos A Bank shirts and thrift store finds but...I want to ask if these are acceptable sewing jobs or should I go find another tailor? I had her slim the sides and arms of most of these. I am no expert on needlework, but even I can see the lines aren't straight and there are weird overlaps she made on the arms and sometimes the thread doesn't match like on that blue shirt. Is this normal? Also she leaves pins in the shirts sometimes when I get them back. The alterations fit alright, so no problem there. I'll let the pictures do the talking. I don't have hundreds of dollars to throw at alterations but I would gladly pay double if it's needed. There are menswear tailors in a city an hour away. So is the quality acceptable or move on? Thanks for any advice!
