A word: simple stuff like buttons, do yourself. A working knowledge of hemming would be a good skill, too.
I work in Boystown in Chicago and there’s a dry cleaning place that also does tailoring at Broadway and Briar, the woman there hasn’t let me down yet.
“Fit N Stiches” is an excellent tailor on North + Paulina. J. Crew on North Ave uses them.
i trust tino’s tailor shop in pilsen. mixed reviews in yelp, but he has never disappointed me. i take him blazers all the time and he has worked his magic for an affordable price. cash only. helps if you speak spanish.
Tailor: Larissa’s Plaza Tailor Shop (KC) is great.
Via your post today and looking for a tailor in KC, look at Rydell’s in Brookside. (cc: @andrewLgoble)
Regarding the tailor, Riedel’s in Brookside (63rd and Brookside Blvd) has always been great for me and my family. I was gifted my dad’s Burberry trench from the 80s, which they shortened and took in around the waist with total perfection. They’re pricey, only take cash/check, and will often require a deposit for larger jobs, but definitely worth it.

Eric at Rydell’s is easily the best in town.
This is right around the corner from my fiance’s studio. Is this underneath the 12th Street bridge? Anyways, I go to Rydell Tailor Shop in Brookside for all my fitting needs. He hooks it up! Plus with straight up hardwood fixtures and leather couches, he’s a class act all the way.
I’ve been pretty satisfied with Slabotsky & Sons for tailoring in downtown KC on grand.
Campus Tailor in Madison is great – it is one woman and she is very helpful, prompt, and does excellent work. Pretty reasonable prices as well. - chloe http://www.blogger.com/profile/00342746418350346100
Can’t recommend this place any higher — incredible work. She’s taken so many thrifted items and made them perfect for me.
