    I was wondering if any people on here can recommend a good tailor in Houston? I have used Prestige Tailors by Mario before (across from Willowbrook Mall), and a place called Taos Tailors in Willowbrook Mall. Both did good job I guess but wanted other recommendations. I live in NW Houston. I have a Costume National Suit to get altered and a Dolce and Gabbana dress shirt that needs the sleeves shortened.

    So I have some polo oxfords, that are a large classic fit and I need them altered to fit as close as possible to a medium custom fit. the arms are fine its the body of the shirt that is HUGE. I bought the shirts a while back (6 months) and was not thinking when I did so. I bought 7 of them and need them fixed. I also have 10 dress shirts that I would like to have altered as well, they are my size but as most shirts OTR are made to fit a individual of a much larger waist size.

    Any updated reccomendations on a place that will alter my shirts and not mess them up? I know that a 100 dollar shirt is not much for most of yall, but for me as a college student its a lot.

    Thanks in advace for the help guys.

    Go see the beautiful Diane at Angel Tailors next door to blockbuster Video at Chimney Rock and Woodway. Tell her Ian recommended you to go. She has done sleeves and sides of several shirts for me and always does top quality work and keeps her promise to have them ready on the day stated. Usually a three day turnaround.

    Hmm...Let me think! No sorry I can't think of any. But my grandma does the job for me just fine. And no she is not in Houston. But yes she can get the job done, contrary to what most of you must be thinking right now.

    You mean that there are people who live outside the loop that dress well enough to need a tailor?! I'm skeptical, sir. [​IMG]

    Saigon Tailor is ok for basic alterations and such. I used to live very close to them and used them for hems and a few repairs. The older lady there also does excellent reweaving!

    If you need a real, heavy duty tailor then go see Mr. Santos. His shop is on Westheimer, just barely west of Shepherd. He will make a good suit look like a great suit.

    Cheeky bugger! I'm only just outside the loop. As close as I could get and be an owner, used to rent inside the loop. And the very excellent Nick Lopez is (just) outside the loop too - it's the place to be!

    I can't believe I forgot about Nick Lopez. Excellent point. Still around the Richmond/Sage area?

    I get nose bleeds outside the sanctuary of the inner loop.

    I get nervous when i go outside the loop, but depends which direction I go. If I head to one of the local universities (the big public one) outside the loop, where I go quite frequently to study, I get nervous. Last time I was filling up gas and I was wearing shorts, loafers and a polo and I got these really bad look for the "homies". I was thinking to myself "shit I am not wanted here."

    Whether you want a suit made or alterations I'd recommend Jimmy at Ahmed's Custom Clothiers www.ahmedscustomclothiers.com. He's on Richmond at Chimney Rock.

    I consider UH to be outside the look, it may not been on the map but in my world it is. lol

    Okay so I have these polo oxfords (8 of them) and they need alterations to the waist, length and maybe sleeves (mostl likely just waist (body of the shirt) and length. Obviously I want to get them altered because they are too baggy, I bought them when I was still into the baggy look, they are a size large, and I want them altered to fit a bit narrower than their, RL, medium custom fitted shirts.

    Questions:

    Have any of you had this done and by who?
    How much would you say would be a reasonable price for one shirt?
    Reasonable price for 8 shirts, I am hoping to get a discount for 8 of them.
    Should I worry about them messing up my shirts, I dont want them to fit the same way.

    I want to get this done this week, I am getting tired of the current shirts I am wearing.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Any possibility of the mods combining this thread with the other Houston tailors?
