I've looked online at reviews for local tailors but I wanted to get TexAg's opinion.

I would like to get a pair of jeans made out of a specific weight and weave of denim made from a specific quality of yarn in a specific fit because I'm convinced that all of these put together would be the perfect pair of jeans for me. The combination doesn't exist in any store I have found.

Has anyone asked a local tailor to make jeans for them? How did it go? How much did it cost?

I got no idea if he does jeans - but I'd wait till Bobby Garia makes one of his 2x yearly trips to BCS and get them from him if he does.

Had good success with this place down at the Fairfield outlet in Cypress. It's a little bit of a drive from BCS but they did a good job.

I hear there's this guy named Garak that's supposed to be a great tailor.

My first thought was this was some kind of joke I'm not getting, but he has a facebook that has a bunch of pictures of suits in between videos of what I'm assuming is the Thailand countryside.

If it is a joke, I've always been the gullible little brother so I'm probably just not going to get it.

Found the thread from two months ago. I'm kind of a slim guy so maybe it'll work out for me.

I had no idea. I've purchased three sport coats from him and jeans have never been mentioned as far as I can recall. Which isn't saying much.

I took one pair of jeans to ATM tailor on E 29th yesterday that I figured I could get back within a week tops. Left them with the guy and as I was about to pay he said it would be two weeks.

I told him I need them in 7 days so he charged me an extra $6 and the total came out to $26. Seemed outrageous considering the jeans only cost $24 at a resale shop and look like they've never even been worn.

I'd probably look for a different shop next time around.
