The day before I go, I go to pick up my two that I selected as the most urgent. Surprisingly, they finished everything (as in all the shirts/blazer/4 pairs of pants/sweater) and gave me a discount (I guess because I brought in so much lol).
You won't find this anywhere else in Vancouver. It's top notch and they understand what's in and what isn't. They aren't arrogant either which is a plus.
Harry Rosen Oakridge gives their stuff to them. Holt Renfrew/Harry Rosen DT (when they're swamped) give their stuff to them. Vice President of the Vancouver Canucks brings his stuff there (it doesn't really matter but just throwing it out there).
Essentially, give Oakridge Tailors a shot if you're not too far from there. Definitely worth it. They're not as cheaply priced as, let's say Albert's Tailors in downtown, but as the saying goes - you get what you pay for.
Also, they're always really busy so as long as you don't need it within a week, then it should be fine.
