    I live in Richmond, VA, which is a decent sized city, but not like Chicago or anything. I am trying to understand what I reasonable price for the following alteration would be. I am not looking for bottom of the barrel, but a good price for good work. I would have it all done together, so I would expect some sort of discount because of the quantity.

    7 Button Down Shirts (Need the waist and sleeves taken in)
    3 Short sleeve button down shirts (need the waist and sleeves taken in)
    5 Knit sweaters (all with side seams, need waist and sleeves taken in)
    1 Polo shirt (need waist and sleeves taken in)
    1 Outerwear jacket (no strange lining or anything, need waist and sleeves taken in)
    1 Suit jacket and suit pants (not sure what alterations it needs, but fits pretty well)

    All of this is new and is either designer or high end that was purchases on sale. I always have to be stuff too large so it will fit my shoulders. I am a student, and this is the first time I've been able to afford to do this kind of thing, but I am curious about pricing.

    PS All of these also possibly need the arm holes raised if that is even possible

    Thanks!
