In before someone tells you to check the reviews on Google instead of depending on people here.

But in all honesty if Ai Lee has been working well for you,stick with them! The learning curve with a new tailor is always the worst.

Thanks for the replies. I visited him and made 2 shirts at 80$ each. I've never spent so much on clothing before but he was quite attentive to the measurements compared to ai lee so I'm curious to see the end results.

Although the fabric he has for the $80 range seems to be somewhat similar to ai Lee's $55 range

PLEASE HELP ME

I bought 4 shirts from Benjamin barker and had them tapered... But I still think the wiast is slightly too big for me... Also, i think the tapering at the back of the shirt was too much that the shirt's structure is imbalanced.. the shirt does not rests nicely on my shoulders...

Is there any way I can get them altered from the seams at the waist a bit more and balance out the overboard tapering?

Please recommend me a top notch alterations tailors to salvage my shirts... Preferably central or the West.. i'm a little disheartened for having wasted $400 dollars...

i went to google and it appears that the owner has retired :(

It is still operating. Owner handed over the business. Workmanship still good but I will advice you to try on when you collect. I made a mistake where I didn't try on and realized they didn't alter my sleeves and I had to bring it back for them to redo

Wonder who's a better crisp white shirt maker;

D&S, Seamless or Yeossal

Good to hear some feedback from those who have made from them.

i have made shirts from Seamless (when still Lusso) and Yeossal before.

Personally, i find the cutting and structure of Yeossal slightly better. The end result wears better.
Ryan is more customer service-oriented though.

Not exactly a tailoring related question but what's a good option for budget jackets for skinny guys?

Looking for something like the below.

Uniqlo mainline leans more toward skinny and cropped like the image though.
Hmm. I thought the image looked like a rather oversized fit. The jacket almost fully covers the butt, shoulders look slightly oversized, sleeves look slightly too long.

Anyway, @Wishdom I guess you could go try on both mainline and +J ones. For the mainline maybe try some jackets 1 or 2 sizes up too.
