Came across this site yesterday http://www.darnanddusted.com/ Think I saw some knitwear on there.

I've never used them before, but yesterday I emailed to see about them fixing a pair of jeans. Knee blowouts.

thx for this - will def get in touch, looks like cool work

Does anyone know anyone / where in London I could get some bespoke pieces made, or tailoring patterns created or similar?

I've got a pair of Uniqlo trousers that I love. The fit and the details are really nice, but they were £9 in the sale and I've worn them to death. Uniqlo have stopped making them so I want to get some made based off of the ones I already own.

Any ideas?

I bet a few of you know some good seamstresses.

Does anyone know of a good place in East London for stuff like taking trousers in? London Fashion Workrooms is annoying to get to within their opening times.

I have seen this place anyone used them? http://www.studio62workroom.co.uk/

What's the next best London go-to for denim repairs at the moment?
Atelier & Repairs seem to have turned their hand more to production, rather than repairs lately.

My Rick leather is knackered - needs new cuffs, new zip and pockets repaired. Is there anywhere that specialises in this kind of thing or is anyone worth his salt going to be able to do that?

Any half-decent seamstress should be able to do it.

Got a few pairs of jeans to shorten - anyone recommend somewhere to get 'em done in bulk that won't cost £20 a pair?

Almost everywhere should be under £20 for simple hemming. So I’m guessing you want chainstitched? in which case that’s the norm.

Got some bargain trews for a summer wedding but they're at least an inch or too big in the waist and seat.

Anyone have any luck getting a pair altered in this way?

Easy to do if they've got a standard seam.


If they're like this they'll just undo them and resew, they can normally make them 1-2 inches smaller without fucking up the shape.
