    There is a little shop in the Haymarket Square/Mall (Burlington Coat Factory/Hobby Lobby) on Merle Hay Rd. I don't know the name but it is the only tailoring shop and they do great work and very reasonable. I believe it is just an Asian couple that run it and work there. Very nice.


    Keep doing what you're doing to build Strong Towns.

    Kim's (i think) in Valley West mall is good.

    i have heard good things about the tailor near 42nd street, on street north of Hubbell Elementary


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    It might help to know what you need tailored; are you just looking to have a few pieces altered, or are you wanting someone that can make you a whole suit?
