A few months ago I was directed to Golden Needle in Gold Coast/River North and they were great. However wouldn't mind something a little closer. Anyone have any Lincoln Park / Lakeview tailors to recommend? Nothing too complicated, just hemming pants, shortening jacket sleeves and installing working cuff buttons.

I go to Golden Needle, but always thought La Modista (Clybourne and Fullerton) was pretty good.

Thanks. Will give them a call tomorrow when they open. Do you know if they can do quick turn-arounds? Got a new suit I want to wear for a wedding this weekend. All that has to be done are shorten sleeves a tiny bit, hem trousers and do working buttonholes (I could even wait on these in theory). Later, I'll do more (replace loops with side tabs, add brace buttons, a few nips and tucks) but just need it to be wearable for the moment.
