Anyone have good things to say about Ramon Tailoring
on Savile Row? Seems one of the few alterations tailors with a website and a price list.
I took a summer blazer there for some adjustment and they basically took the jacket completely apart and put it back according to the measurements they took. It looks fantastic (like the jacket was made to measure) and the quality of the work is outstanding. I paid 80 pounds for all the work done (front and back taken in, tapered to the body...) and I have been using them ever since. Warmly recommend!
That's good to know as they are competitively priced too.
I have a Sartorio suit that that needs working cuffs, pants hemming and taking in seat, crotch and waist.
I use a local alterations tailor who is fantastic at taking up/cuffing trousers, which is usually all I need, and his work is absolutely top notch - I recently bought a suit in Corneliani Bond St. I don't know who they use for their alterations but the hemming of the pants was far inferior work - he also only charges £7.50 for normal and £10.00 for cuff.
However, I would not entrust major work like above.
I will use either Pinnas & Needles or Ramon.
