Cost Of Hemming A Shirt?

I just recieved a bunch of 1mx shirts from express (christmas gifts, no reciepts), and I figured I'd get some use out of them as clubbing shirts. The problem is I'm a short guy, around 5'8", and I'd like to wear them untucked. How much should I pay to have each shirt shortened, and what should I ask for, a square hem on the bottom or just removing a bit off of the tails, or something else? Thanks in advance!

dont know what the current prices are.

Square bottom with side slits, excellent. Have you ever had a shirt hemmed? If so, what was the price at that time? I'm just looking for something to go on, I really have no idea on what they would charge me, and if it's just too much I'd wear them tucked into jeans I guess.

Wow, if that is the average cost, then nevermind!

I pay $10.50, basically this question isn't very productive. How about calling around and getting real prices at tailors in your area.

Well I have absolutely no idea what it would cost, I am going to ask tomorrow however I want to have a ballpark idea so they don't charge me whatever they want.
