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.

Must 2nd the above - done a great job for me on a few items (nearest tube Highbury and Islington or Cale Road)

^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

Can most tailors shorten nylon stuff ok? Straightforward hem shortening on a pr of shorts.

I always use oran tailors in shoreditch, just off old street, they're expensive but amazing.
