Hemming?

I know that there is another thread for alternations, but that one is dead and its for Surrey.
Where are some good places for hemming in Vancouver, Burnaby, or Richmond and the price if you know it?
I had a bad experience with this place last time :S

I have 3 dress pants that need hem + taper. Anyone know of a good place? I know Stitches is good, but only for jeans? Anyone know anywhere that's good for dress pants where I can also get measured up as well?

Got my Naked and Famous ones done by him too. I had my wallet hole fixed as well.
Knows quite a bit, and it was only gone for a day.

I think it has been recommended on RS before but Oakridge Tailors does a great job and is less than $10 for hemming. It is a block and a half west (I think) of 41st along Cambie.

If you're in Richmond, go to Pak Lane Tailor Co, 1128-8700 McKim Way.
It's a small place, but the guy does a good job at a fair price. I don't remember the prices off the top of my head, I just got a suit done there.

Try and avoid Stitches in Metrotown. They're very inconsistent if you ask for a certain size hem and just looks sloppy. Uneven 1/4inch hem on both the jeans I left them. Asked if they could colour match the threads and they said "sure". Both pairs came out black..

Anybody know a place with good reputation or had experience with not hemming jeans but altering tops? like blazers, long sleeves or shirts? and how much?

Thanks
