taking in shoulders is a pretty big operation - not worth the hassle/expense imo.

Try London Fashion Workrooms, apparently a lot of stores send their stuff there for alterations. Haven't actually used them yet but have called them and will be going in soon.

From Styleforum:
If anyone is looking for a good place for alterations in the central London area, I can recommend one; they are called London Fashion Workrooms, and the are based in Covent Garden: No 26 Parker Street WC2B 5PH.
Amongst others, they have contracts with Paul Smith, Nicloe Farhi, Gieves and Hawkes, Crombie and Loro Piana. On that basis I entrusted them with my items; I was not disappointed.
I took two sports jackets to be altered. Both had the centre back taken in(£26), side seams in and drape(£29) and the shoulders narrowed(£45) : £100 each. The work was superb, unnoticeable.

Is it possible to get the neck opening on a knitted jumper made smaller? Got a Garbstore jumper and the neck opening is huge, not from stretching but just seems to be the fit.

Would appreciate info on above as well. £180 trousers so quite nervous about taking them to a Johnsons or similar. Was thinking of using Son of a Stag to hem them.
