I have been coming to Brentwood Alterations for years, since I moved back from NYC and I could not be more pleased with their work. Their alterations are expert, exquisite needlework, and the costs are really reasonable. If the work will cost more than the result is worth, they are honest about it and don't chase the business. The family running it is very friendly and nice, and will bump up the timetable if you have an emergency. One caveat -- be prepared to wait if you come during high volume periods, e.g. Saturdays or late afternoon with the post-work traffic. Also the parking isn't great and they don't take credit cards. But these are small bothers compared to what you get. There's a reason they've won local awards such as that from RFT. If you want it done right the first time, come to Brentwood. Especially in times like this when fixing something is cheaper than buying new...
