    Do you need shirts or someone to fix a shirt you already have?

    Just about anyone can add darts. I wouldn't pay too much for it.

    Even if he can, he shouldn't - that would look weird.

    If it needs to be taken in at the sides (and possibly in the arms) that will be a lot more expensive - as in a decent % of the original cost of the shirt.

    Wongs in FiDi has always done well by me on simple tasks - pants hemmed, etc. Don't know if they're up to something like this but probably the best of few options.
