People who buy off the rack suits, how much do you expect to pay for tailoring?

Nothing. Nordstrom includes it for free.


Ahhh, live and learn man, recommend hitting up Nordstrom during a sale to get some nice canali, boss or Ted baker suits


I've been had :( I went to a tailor in my area with good Yelp reviews. Asked him for my measurements so I can find a suit. He offers to sell me one of the suits in his store for $500 with tailoring included. I went with it and got an amazingly fitting suit. He did an amazing job. However, when I got home I realized I can easily find the suit for $150 on overstock.com. With tailoring I could've spent only $250 instead of $500.

Please don't think about buying a $150 suit I'm embarrassed for you, your making the firm look bad suggesting it, $500 should be your price floor for a suit. Usually $750-$1000 is a real man suit

Nordstrom only finishes pants for free, no actual alterations to the jacket or pants-unless you have their credit card

@C, ah I should've written this out more clearly. What I meant is that I could've bought the same exact suit and gotten it tailored for $250 instead of the $500 I paid.

Yup. Fortunately I'm a tech consultant so I hardly ever need to wear a suit at work. This suit will suffice for an event coming up

Most tailors have stores full of junk. The problem is you go in there and they are so damn pushy when it comes to selling you the junk they have had sitting on the racks for years..

No matter how good the suit fits off the rack you will most certainly have to get some tailoring done, and you should expect to pay between $60-$120. The devil is in the details so don't cheap out and make sure it fits like a glove because people do notice.

Uhh if your suit fits like a glove it's too tight
