    I just recently brought in some shirts and trousers to a local tailor in Los Angeles for alternations and was wondering what the average pricing is or what people who live in the area normally pay.

    - Shortening shirt sleeves: $25 per shirt
    - Trouser hem: $13 per trouser
    - Trouser width / taper adjustment from thigh to ankle: $40 per trouser

    Do those pricing seem about right? I don't really have much to compare against besides $6 hemming on jeans from another tailor in Los Angeles as well.
