Cheap Tailor for a Broken Zipper?

This morning my husband’s zipper “jumped the track” on one side of his dress trousers. While this is normally something I would fix myself, I’m not sure I have enough black thread to finish the job properly by hand and am considering paying to have a tailor do this simple fix instead. Are there any cheap local tailors people have had good experiences with who will do this for a small fee, and approximately how much would it cost? If it’s going to be expensive I’d rather just replace the pants and donate them as they’re old anyway. Thank you!

Many, if not most (if not all…), cleaners also do stuff like this. Pop into your local dry cleaner and ask.

I recently had some things done at Georgetown Valet, 1100 13th St NW. They did good work and the prices were reasonable. For example, ten bucks to repair a small hole in a velvet jacket, and they did it on the spot.

For some minor things, I take them to the lady of the Dry Cleaning on 14th and Fairmont.
