    How much do you guys pay to have your sleeves shortened from the shoulder?

    Do you have a good person in NYC to do this?

    I was quoted $70 (Ercole's), $75 (Stanton Tailor), $120 (Mario Bosco - ATL)

    Any opinion on pricing, etc?

    Thanks!

    All the above seem within reason. You do want this done well particularly if it is a well built garment.

    I have my Caruso sourced Barney's private label jackets shortened from the shoulder as the body of the 54L fits me perfectly but the sleeves than are 4 inches too long. They charge me $60 with the purchase (generally during sale times) for this extra work. And these jackets have a wonderful gathered sleevehead and so far the LV tailor has done a very good job on the 2 he has done for me.
