How complicated an alteration is letting out the waist of a suit jacket by 0.5-1" from the sides? What should the NYC cost be to do this? Just dropped off a suit which I love at L&S Tailors (on E61, not LS!) and feel that they understood what I wanted but also kind of wanted me to just drop the jacket and leave rather than being receptive to specific instructions. Price also seemed high at $65 but I've never had this done so I don't know what the right price is. Would you trust them to do this alteration? The fabric on this is 11/12 oz Minnis Fresco. Will there be crease marks or holes from letting this out? I'm sure it's all fine but wanted to check as I don't want to screw up the suit. It's mainly SF-type OCD which compelled me to bring the jacket in for alteration in the first place. I would be upset if it came back worse than it went in. Thank you.
