    Tailoring a kilt jacket

    I scored a vintage Argyle from etsy and overall it fits well, but a few adjustments will make a proper fit. Given the unique cuts of these jackets, can a regular tailor do this or should I look for a tailor experienced with kilt jackets? If so, does anyone know of one in L.A. or Orange county?

    Yes I've had work done on various jackets (Highland and non-Highland) by a tailor in Orange.

    It's called Dino's Tailoring.

    Just be aware that there are modifications that are simple, and ones which would require re-making the suit from scratch more or less, that I don't think he would do.
