    I have a few suits that I got at exceptionally low prices ($10, $20) that I would like to have altered considerably. I'm talking redoing a jacket to match a sloped shoulder, changing the rise of trousers, and other similarly involved work.

    Because I got these suits so cheap (they were at least $3000 new), even spending several hundred dollars would be worth it to have the job done right. So I ask: do you gentlemen know of a tailor in Manhattan (or Brooklyn, I guess) who would take on this sort of work?

    Don't bother, it they been intended to be thus, they would have been made so. Such surgery just turns them into rags.

    Another suggestion is Wazin on 57th. I just commented elsewhere that I've had a few suits that had relatively extensive work done, though not as much as you're talking, and they turned out very nicely.
