I'm looking for a good tailor to alter some jeans, take in the waist and hem the legs.

Bonus points if it's close to Park Rd & Woodlawn.

Also, if you refer someone, and you've had them do a similar job, let me know what it might cost.

Thanks!

I found a place today called Ann's Alterations, I went to the one on Pineville-Matthews, but they do have a Park Rd location. There were a lot of customers there, which was surprising to me, guess a lot of people have clothes altered:-). I took a pair of True Religion jeans in to get hemmed and tapered. Charge was $26 and they'll be ready Friday. Hope all goes well!

I 2nd Anna's alterations. I have used them in Pineville Matthews Rd (off Park Rd by Outback) and now use them up in University. I am not sure on the waist alteration but the turn up was about $8.00. they are always busy I highly recommend them

A little closer to Park & Woodlawn, Tina's Alterations @ the shopping center where Brixx and Outback Steakhouse is (can't remember the name) at East Blvd. and Scott Ave. did a great job for me on a pair of jeans. They were expensive jeans, so I was a little aprehensive, but I needed the inseam taken in about 2". They actually cut off the bottom stitched part, removed two inches from the leg, and then reattached the bottom part so that the worn/wrinkled pattern would still be on there. I got them back, and you could not even tell that they'd snipped the bottom part off - no visible stiches or anything. I really don't know how they did it, but the fact that it is indetectible shows that they did a good job. It was only like $8 or $10 if I recall correctly to get this done, and on a $200 pair of jeans (well, OK...I got them at Sak's Off 5th, so they were less than that), that is nothing. FWIW, they have also altered suits for me, and have always done an excellent job. Highly recommended.

Can you guys tell me with either of those locations, will they measure me and then make the adjustments, rather then me needing to bring the pants in already measured and marked?

Because I have no idea how to do that. I think somewhere I read to have the cuff's measured, marked, pinned and ironed where I'd like them to be hemmed, but I don't know exactly where would be best.

Anna's alterations will chalk your pants and measure you up - I would suggest bringing the shoes you intend to wear with them, they do have shoe samples but better guage if you bring your own

Christie's Alterations at South and Seneca Place is a great place as well to take clothes to be altered. I've had several pairs of pants hemmed here. You can bring them in marked, or, she will mark them for you on site.

Tina's alterations will make measurements. I have done that with them before to ensure that I got the right measurements.

I finally got around to taking a pair of jeans and a pair of kahkis in to be altered. I just picked them up today. I took them to Anna's on Park Rd after a few of you suggested them.

The lady I dealt was very very nice, though quiet, but said thank you and good bye and have a good day with a smile both times I was there.

Prices= $8 to hem the legs and $12 to take in the waste.

Both pairs of pants fit great. I feel like one is a little short on the hem, but I think that has more to do with being used to wearing my pants a little too long.

Thanks for the referrals I appreciate them.
