    I need shirt sleeves and bodies taken in. This will be my first time taking anything to a tailor, is this a pretty simple thing to do, and can anybody give me a ballpark price figure?

    I haven't lived in Lexington recently enough to give you an answer, but Go Big Blue!

    Call Graves, Cox and/or Logan's of Lexington and ask them if they can recommend an alterations tailor.

    I have an excellent tailor who does great work, makes mtm and custom shirts and suits, and provides alteration services. He does work for Coach Cal, and other UK coaching and academic staff, along with many others in the central KY area. Logan's of Lexington also recommends and use him when they are busy.
    It's KC tailoring by Malone's steak house on Tates creek rd. His contact info is 859-268-3190

    he has done major work on 4 suits of mine and makes great shirts starting at 125!

    When I lived in Lexington, my father went to a place called The Buttonhole. There was a lady there who did excellent work, but I don't know if she's still around.
