I decided that I would compile of a list of who to go to in Brisbane. Ashley & Schreder, Lennons Hotel. This guy is a trained tailor and has been in business for pretty much his whole working life. He's a little bit disorganised sometimes - he tends to right your details on a piece of scrap paper - but he gets things done on time and is extremely affordable. I've gone to him countless times for alterations including: Replacing sleeve linings, altering seat and waist bands, shortening and lengthening sleeves, taking in side seams of a jacket, shortening jackets, re stitching pick stitching. George, Joe Richards, City. I haven't had anything altered by George personally but he does some work for some friends of mine and has almost performed miracles when cleaning up a botched job from Doree. He does alot of work for Borrelli so its going to be good. Tess, NAB Building, City: She is used by almost everyone in the city, including Herringbone, David Jones, Rhodes & Beckett, Xile, Mitchel Ogilvie and alot of other small shops. Im not sure why people use her, it might be something to do with the fact that she has almost taken over a whole floor to her business. The work is competent but not necessarily better than Ashley Schreder. She usually charges a fair bit more than the above though. Brisbane Alterations, Rowes Arcade: I use these guys for my shirts. They do a good job at taking in the side seams. They will redo single needle stitching and french seams in your better shirts and will even sew the gussets on. I haven't been there for a while but I think they charging $35.00 per shirt. Regent Tailors, : I've only used these guys once for cutting some sleeve buttonholes on a Pal Zileri coat. They did a great job and it didn't cost too much, but they took along time to get the work done. The buttonholes weren't done by hand, but they had a good machine which looked factory standard. I dont know if they did the work themselves or outsourced it so I really can't give a recommendation. Doree, Queen St Mall: Avoid these like the plague. Their staff lack people skills and they can't take instructions, which means they end up f&*king the whole thing up. Anthony Cavallo, Stones Corner He does some of the work for Mitchel Ogilvie, in particular Brioni. He's also been in the tailoring business for a long time. The quality of the work is great, alot of it is fine handwork but because he's a one man operation and because he's retirement age he's probably a little reluctant to do major jobs and will also tend to take his time. Not the exhaustive list by any means but its definitely something to work with. Alterations are a dime-a-dozen but the quality is usually pretty hit and miss.
