    The tailors I trust (Rizzo's, Jack's, Frank's) will not taper my jeans at the knee. They all recommend dry cleaners, and I won't trust my RRLs with random dry cleaner services. They say it all has to do with having the right kind of machine.

    Can anyone recommend a reputable tailor in the Boston area who will taper my jeans at the knee?

    You might try Newbury Tailoring Co.

    I've had good luck with Rudolfo's. I've taken things to both Rizzo and Frank's with mixed results. Rudolfo tapered a few pairs of khakis for me and did a great job. He's on the spendy side (so is Rizzo), but he hasn't let me down yet.
