Newbie needs help in L.A. - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Charles the Tailor is great, I'll concur. Not cheap by any means though. I paid $240 for major alterations on a Borrelli suit. I was skeptical that it needed so much work, as it seemed to fit pretty well. He insisted the shoulder needed to be altered - he was right. The suit fit absolutely perfect after he was done.

I bought a brown cord blazer that I need the sleeves shortened. The jacket has working button holes on the sleeves. Do you think Tony would be able to shorten the sleeves & make working button holes? Also, would you know how much he would charge just to shorten the sleeves on a jacket? Thanks!

just to shorten jacket sleeves costs $20. As for the functional buttons, I don't know what he can/can't do for your jacket since there are a few things that need to be seen, like the distance from first button to sleeve hem, whether or not there's enough room to shorten the sleeve without interfering with the existing buttonhole....most likely the sleeve would have to be shortened at the shoulder, which I've personally never had him do so I wouldnt know the cost

I think I've seen this place when going to Golden Deli.
