Need a fairly good tailor that charges reasonable prices for some alterations I'm lookin at getting done on a suit. These include:

shortening the length of the arms on the blazer
taking in sides right above my waist to give me more of a silohuette

Prices and suggestions would be great.

Also, for anyone that has done this type of work on their own clothes, does it really matter who you get it done by? I mean, the ones at the dry cleaners seem to be in the profession for decades.

Thanks in advance.

I've been going to the Jos A Bank in Loehman's plaza. They work on outside suits not just the ones you buy from them. They have this older Russian woman and an asian guy that are pretty good.

Let see, if i remember correctly:
shortening sleeves: ~$20
taking out bulge of back of coat: ~25
hemming pants: $20

That's pretty much what I get done. Never taken in a coat for silhouttee but I'm sure they can do it. Pretty reasonable compared to dry cleaning places, who sometimes wouldn't know a quality men's suit from a sears suit.
