    Dolce and Gabbana - I've never even seen this brand in a store and I find in at a Goodwill, that's why I love doing this! Does this look real?

    Hey guys, do any of you know of a decent tailor in the Washington DC/ Northern Va area? I thrifted a few things that I need simple alterations done, sleeve shortned/waist surpression those sort of things. If I'm posting in the wrong section please let me know.

    http://www.styleforum.net/search.php?action=advanced&search= is your friend.

    If it's major work, go to Field's. If it's minor work, I've used the Montgomery Custom Tailor in Montgomery Mall and been very satisfied with the work they do.

    I use Stephen the Tailor in Foggy Bottom for my stuff. He's ok, mostly bring small stuff (hems, slimming shirts, etc.) to him - nice thing is if you don't like it he'll redo for free.

    Just kidding. You might do well in the Ann Arbor area, but the local look is decidedly more boho than tailored. There is this place in Ann Arbor that I keep meaning to visit one of these Saturdays.
