If you’re looking to buy a tailored suit in Los Angeles, much like most anything else, you can spend a lot or spend a little. If you’re attending, say, the Academy Awards, which is something entertainment folks actually do in this town, your best bet probably a tailor in Hollywood or Beverly Hills. You are, indeed, dressing to impress. On the other hand, if your little cousin is getting hitched and needs to dress his groomsmen on a budget, something more local might do the trick. It all depends on your needs (and also your dollars).

Los Angeles is the home to award shows, for better or worse, which means mean of these great suit makers can have their creations in front of thousands on TV screens everywhere. Therefore, you can find some of the very best right here in your own backyard.
