    Can someone recommend someone?

    I have a local tailor, but I dont know if she is good. Other than trial and error, can you suggest a way to determine if she is quality? Im still new to this and my clothes are relatively inexpensive and my look is not highly refined, so Im not in need of a high end tailor, just someone who is competent. Any guidance on this one?

    If alterations, D'Apolito & Son (in Far Hills) is better than a dry cleaner tailor. I still use them from time to time if NYC doesn't make sense for whatever reason.

    where in Central Jersey? Pino's Tailors on Rt 33 in Mercerville does a good job, but I hear he is retiring very soon and moving to florida.

    any good shops in central NJ that do hand-sewn button holes/working buttons for sleeve?
    Also other trouser/coat alterations?
