My tailor is actually like my doctor, when my clothes feel ill-fitting, I consult my tailor.. The fact is actually clothes off-the-rack are made to fit a mannequin, and every person's body is shaped differently..

I have altered practically every clothing article from t-shirts, polo-t's, short pants, jeans, khakis, dress shirts, and sportsjackets..

Only if absolutely necessary.

However, I never alter jeans, as the shop usually makes a mess of it.

How much does an alteration usually cost?
Like for example... I have a dress shirt that is too long and I want to make it shorter...

"dress shirt too long" as in the body length of the shirt? the issue in a dress shirt is not too much about the body length as they are meant to be tucked in.. but if they ARE too long, then im assuming that they are far off your correct size..

however if u are talking about the sleeves of the dress shirt being too long, then that would cost u about RM30 to shorten from an expert tailor..

I don't buy if it doesn't fit.

Which is why I don't shop at Zara and Massimo Dutti. The lengths are just too awkward.

CK, DKNY, Polo RL are brands that fit me exceptionally well.

If you're talking about shirts and trousers, I always get them made.

I'm very particular about jeans alterations. Preferably chain stitching at the end. But then again it's unlikely that you're buying raw selvedge denim so any tailor can do your alterations.
