Hmm. You're right, Palo Alto is a high income area! I'm applying to Stanford GSB so I know the cost of living there is

Unfortunately, I live in LA and $75 is the lowest I've been quoted. But I'm going to pay it b/c it's the least expensive place and the tailors work for RL

When still buying RTW, I had reverse pleats removed from a Paul Stuart suit by their inhouse tailor (NY store) and forward pleats from a Polo Ralph Lauren Tuxedo by their inhouse tailor (ATL store). The results were excellent, but it cost me around $100 in each case.

Sure it is preferable to buy flat fronts right from the beginning, but sometimes you find a suit you really like which happens to come with pleated pants only. So why not invest a bit extra, to get rid of the pleats in such a case?
