    Hello, all. I have numbr of shirts that I like, but which just dont fit well enough. I have bought a few custom shirts and generally tried to wear clothes that fit well, and these shirts are just too "blousey."

    I am thinking of bringing them to a tailor to see if he can clean them up and make them mre like a slim fit shirt. I tihnk there will be a good amount of work involved and thus i ont tihnk the lady at the corner dry cleaners can do it. I tihnk its worth paying up for this, as even if I spend $50 I will get a shirt I can wear rather that throwing these things.

    Any advice on tailors who might be able to do this?

    simple alterations should not be more then $20-30. any more and you bought the wrong sized shirt or the tailor is a thief.
