    Recommended, or in-store tailoring services generally a bad idea? BB said they send Black Fleece alterations to be done in NY. Does that make it any better?

    The key is to have your alterations measured by the tailor -- not a sales person. If you are measured locally and the work is done in NYC, there could be some disconnect. I doubt BB Black Fleece has any unique construction that any competent local tailor could not handle.

    I have purchased suits, sport coats, trousers, etc. from my local BB, Nordstroms, NM, Dillards, etc. that have needed alterations. I never have their house tailors do my alterations as I found a local tailor shop run by two great Chinese women who do amazing work, at reasonable prices and on time. I have been taking all my alterations to them for many years. They know me and how my clothes fit. If you can, find a local independent tailor and work with them. Results will be consistent no matter where you bought your clothes.
