Anyone know a good tailor downtown/uptown? I've had mixed experiences with Townline (on Howe), would like to try someplace new if they come recommended. I need a jacket worked on..

and possibly some good venues for concerts?

I don't know what you're into but it's pretty slow right now. Show listing blog here: http://itcameoutmagical.blogspot.com/

Eat at Grub (Main & 27th): http://grubonmain.ca/

Good people, I'll be getting my peacoat tailored there.

Good tip. I'd never heard of them but I found a lot of good reviews online. I didn't want to venture too far but they're really only a 15 minute bike ride south of my place.

Kurt Vile/Soft Pack on the 5th but I don't know about anything happening on the 6th/7th.

Repped. Finally got my jacket back (they're quite busy it seems).. everything's cool. I'm definitely going there next time I need some work done.

Just for my own enrichment... Did they slim the arms down at all? I've always wondered how a tailor might go about doing that...

they can definitely taper arms.

slimming the whole arm could be difficult because they would have to take apart the seams at the shoulders and re-cut the arm hole opening.

do they re-stock each day?

They were restocking throughout the day last year. Don't expect much if you go on the last day, though.

Gotta' get me some men's blankets.

Too bad they discontinued the sneakers, I really liked the first model with the side zip.

Damn, it's tomorrow? I thought it was later for some reason. Makes sense though. Could use the rep, I suppose.
