Everyone knows that suits and sport coats will virtually always need tailoring OTR, but what do you guys do with your streetwear? I've got this utterly amazing Korean lady down the block who does a dry cleaning & alterations business. Now I think I'm addicted to alterations. Her prices range from $8 to hem trousers to $45 to taper the torso on my Burberry trench (a huge, complex, and annoying coat...from a tailor's perspective). Today I had received 2 linen safari shirts by Rugby Ralph Lauren. I got them on the last call sale for $30 from MSRP $90. When I got them, it fit well enough in the shoulders and slightly too loose through the torso untucked. When it's tucked though....it's a nightmare. I brought them to her and she pinched them a bit and got a MUCH better fit. I can't wait to see them done on Saturday. It used to be that as long as my clothes didn't look a size too small or large, I tolerated it. As a combination of an Irish heritage and lots of weight loss (220-165), I'm a "weird" medium. My shoulders have some breadth, but my chest is narrowish but deep (somewhat barrel chested). This means that most shirts hang over rather than contour with my torso. And it's ugly (ie...I think...did I go to 190 lbs and a 37 waist?!). When I finally got a shirt cut right, I was wowed. And $15 per shirt alterations are too tempting to pass up. It used to be suits, but now I'm looking at it differently. Now everything short of underwear, shorts, and T-shirts is fair game. Also, (as my mother always says, and I suspect is true) a tailored wardrobe is the final polish that makes a person really stand out from the crowd.
