Finding a good tailor

I recently moved back to Dallas and am not really familiar with the area's sartorial qualities. How do I go about finding a good, respectable tailor? I would just use Yellow Pages, but I don't want to end up with some fashionista dropout that thinks he's good with a pair of scissors and steady hands. Who do I even go about asking to locate a good tailor? Any thoughts?

I've had good success by going into local high-end stores and asking if they could recommend a tailor. Ask at a couple and a pattern will start to emerge.
