it depends what it is. obviously if its a suit that cost a grand go to a proper tailors, but for most stuff (and by far the cheapest method) is to go and see some of the grannys at a dry cleaners who really know their shit. serious

Yeah, it's a suit– just need the trousers finishing. Should really have got Harvey Nichols to do it at the time of purchase, but forgot. Guess a tailor is the best way forward to avoid any screw ups Smiling
