Yeah, I realize that's pretty specific... but any help would be appreciated. Recruiting season coming up soon, so I've gotta look good and after spending some time here I realize my stuff doesn't fit as well as I thought...
Anyone Know a good tailor in London, Ontario, Canada?
I went to "penny" at yonge and castlefield "Stychin Tyme". it's a small shop, typical Scottish woman working there, very friendly but busy (stay on her good side!). Seemed quite competent (she actually refused to work on something becuase she said it would never really look right), decent prices (although she won't discount for multiple stuff). eg, jacket pulled in around $40, shoulder changes $40+, etc. Picking up a suit and some things next week so we'll see how it goes.
Does anyone else have any experience with Delis, Fred Badr or Franco Paglione? I just picked up a Sterlingwear peacoat and want to have the sleeves brought in a little. My tailor back in Vancouver is jam-packed for the holidays and won't have time to fit me in before I come back to London. Thanks in advance!
Regarding the pea jacket and sleeve alteration, there is a great alteration spot called Kim Tailor in the Sherwood Forest Mall (dry cleaners as well.) They do NOT make suits from scratch but they will do any type of alterations on men's suits etc. and women's dresses etc. I have a very picky friend who used them to do a fairly complicated alteration on a multi-layered and flip/flouce type dress. She is capable of doing it herself but figured it would be time consuming. She was incredibly happy with the finished product and the price she was charged. Kim, the owner, is Asian and very pleasant and they always seem to be very busy.
