Just take your Boss suits to Oakridge Tailors, they've been doing the Harry Rosen + Hugo Boss alterations at Oakridge for a while and have always done a good job with my Boss suits.

If I can remember correctly it was between 30-50 depending on how much I needed done (from just having pants hemmed + taken in/out to having jacket taken in as well and pants slimmed down)

We all dress too casually. Where in this city can you find an establishment that requires a proper dress code at least for men, a sport jacket, dress pants and shoes? I went for a NYE dinner at Kettle of Fish and beside my table were a group of Yahooligans dressed as if they were in a rap video. WTF is that? But hey, it's okay because we're West Coast and we're chill here. Yeah. Okay. Go to Toronto, Los Angeles, or any major global city and try to pull that off. I think not.

Nobody here is educated enough to dress properly and knows how to dress right. I'm not going to brag here but I'm just going to say it how I see it. I bought an off-the-rack Paul Smith Byard 2-piece suit at Holt Renfrew in time for my cousin's wedding in Los Angeles. Showed up thinking, "Man, I'm going to look like a fool!" I was wrong. Turns out I stole all the glory from the groom himself and the rest of the wedding party. When you know how to dress properly or if you put enough time and effort into dressing up, all the little bit of detail and effort will not go unnoticed. Unfortunately, people here don't care enough hence why there aren't many good to mind-blowing tailors in this city. They've packed up shop and left or there were none to begin with.

Just my 2 cents.
Try living in Ottawa. Everyone dresses like hobos

At least Ottawa is a government town where people do dress up for work. Also, there is a bit of the Quebecois influence. When I worked there, people did tend to dress up a bit more, but then again, I worked in a government office.

how much was it actually? i went there today, and to redo the jacket (vents & a central line, as it was way too big) $55
for the trousers, to adjust the waist & seat (butt) + taper $45, so $100 all in

service thus far has been very good, i have a lot more confidence that it'll be done right, at this point, we'll see when i pick it up in 2 weeks (i won't be available until then)

My experience at Oakridge Tailors was pretty good. My uncle graciously donated to me two of his old quality blazers (a Prada and a Gucci) and though they fit okay, I decided to spend some money and get them altered. I got the sleeves shortened on both (to the point where a cuff link will show) and I had the sides taken in also. The Gucci one was a little more trouble as my shoulders are somewhat asymmetrical (they added a shoulder pad to one.) They of course couldn't replicate the original stitching (the guy even commented on the quality of the stitching as he was putting the pins in), but the finished product ended being pretty decent.

It took me two weeks to get two jackets altered. The total damage was a shade over $200 (sleeves and sides.)
