    I pay $7 for the full treatment on a shirt. Dude does a really good
    job.

    You are better off getting into custom shirts though - your are paying more but you're not paying twice for the assembly.

    Definitely agree. It's far less hassle and offers way more choice and possibilties in fabrics and shirt design.

    On the same page, do you guys get your shirts laundered before taking them in for tailoring?

    I am bring in some shirts for tailoring later this week, I am just too lazy to run by the dry cleaner first.

    I would at least run them through the wash, definitely not a press or iron. They usually give it a press when they're done. It would seem rude to give someone dirty clothes to work with.

    Well I picked up my first "test case" yesterday. Was a PRL classic fit long sleeve.

    I have to say that for $6.75 this is solid. He tapered the sides AND sleeve which surprised me since I didn't even mention the sleeve.

    The fit is now identical to a BB slim fit. I asked him to take in the next couple of shirts even more, but he said it would not work..

    I'm not sure why that is true, but for this quality at this price... I'm going to trust him.

    Furo, where are you located?

    I live in the NYC/Northern NJ area and would LOVE to find a tailor that would taper shirts for such a price... I'd bring in every single shirt I own

    I'm in SW Texas sort of near El Paso area...

    Here's a pic I got yesterday while in his shop (his $6.75 for shirts isn't listed here so I got a bargain):
