Looking for above as well. Re tailoring near Barbican is decent vut seems to be £50 for jacket sleeve from shoulder and he is currently on holiday. Anywhere else in East or City worth a go?

Can't recommend Perfect Stitch enough, these guys are great.

^bit far for me.

Should note that London fashion workrooms seems to be listed as closed, they were very good. Perhaps trade only now?

Just got of the phone to Acne about reapiring some jeans and the SA said they send all of their stuff to Design & Alter Battersea. Looks pricey but they seem to have a good reputation. Looks like they do Chain Stitching as well.

Anyone got a price list or any kind of indication of prices for perfect stitch? I've got a whole bag of clothes that need various things and I was going to take it all there, I've emailed them and they haven't replied, and I don't want to just turn up with no idea.

Has anyone ever had sleeves of a sweatshirt shortened? And is it possible?

Bought a sweatshirt from America so can’t send back but sleeves are about 5 inches too long Laughing out loud

Anywhere that isn’t son of stag to do a denim crotch repair in London? Or mail order? Used son of stag in the past and very happy, but now £47.

I've recently had my crotch blow out on my Blackhorse lane jeans repaired in their factory and it is by far the best blow out repair i've had done. faultless

anyone used the clothes doctor for repairs at all? https://clothes-doctor.com
Need a popper/button put back on a top but want as close to factory finish as possible.

Any recommendations for good online tailors? Want simple alterations to casual/streetwear, not suiting, and I want it to be reasonably priced. Previous experience with walk-in local places has nearly always been poor.

Field Denim? they’re London based but couldn’t say where exactly. The guy who runs it is sound and has done a great job every time I’ve used him.

Edit-Have just checked address details from last time I used him-West Kilburn area so not South.

Yeah, I just got some work done by Field Denim and he's great and cheap as chips.
You can post them to him if it's too far.

Thought that would've been someone related to Alpha Shadows, but that's gone now.
