    Just bought two pair of Takumi jeans from a Loehmans here in Denver and I want them tapered a bit from the calf to the bottom. How much would a tailor charge for that? :)

    My fucking tailor charged me $25 and he did them poorly...needless to say, I haven't gone back.

    You should be able to find it for much cheaper, $15 I think is the most you should pay. Some dep't stores have in-house tailors.

    Mine did a pair for $10/leg and did a FLAWLESS job. Old hispanic ladies that have been in the same shop for 30 years ftw.
