    I've a couple shirts that need to have the sleeves shortened about 2 inches. Can anyone recommend a tailor in the Boston are that will do this correctly--ie, moving the sleeve placket, rathern than shortening the placket, and leaving the sleeve unbalanced? How much can I expect to pay for this?

    Jack's Tailoring in Cambridge (Porter Square).

    About $40 last time he did a shirt for me (about a year ago). I was very happy with his work. He moved the placket up and recreated the unique stitching as well.
