Is anyone able to recommend some tailors or stores for alterations (waist suppression) in the Sydney CBD? 

A search of this thread yields around 50 pages of matches for alterations/tailors. Unfortunately, I do have a slight time constraint as a friend of mine can bring the suits to Lee Baron to alter for me (who put together a great fitting suit a month ago).

I would definitely appreciate any advice, given the wealth of experience on here. The crux of the dilemma is that I need to have three suit jackets brought in, as the jacket sides are far too wide. Evidently, I didn't have much foresight as I only purchased the suits six months ago overseas - before deciding to be slightly less unhealthy.

So based on my browsing, some options for the alterations are:
- M&R Tailors
- Lucy's Tailor (which I've used previously, but only to shorten the sleeves for OTR), quoted over the phone between $50-150.
- Sewspecial

I could always take the option of trying out all three places, but I'd much rather go to once place have them bring in one jacket and let them do the rest if I am comfortable.

Basically, any suggestions or recommendations for someone not too well versed with it all would be much appreciated. Any pointers on how I should request the jackets to be brought in would be great too (e.g. I've read that having it brought in via the centre back seam is not advised).

Just go to Hayel and Son Lvl 3, Suite 301/ 250 Pitt St. They handle all the alterations for the high end stores and have a 30 year rep.

love the suit. Is it just me or could you do with wider lapels?

Thanks, think it's just you though. They aren't skinny by any means, at least the width of my tie.

Agreed. Looks good CW. A Boglioli POW unstructed coat I am looking at is very tempting and this shot of your check flannel is not helping.

I just popped into Harrolds on the way back to the office and saw some of their Marsell shoes. Who wears shoes like these?????

 

Keep in mind that what you see below are new shoes:

Homeless guys !!

^ That. Is. Hilarious.

The kids who wear these are usually born at Cabrini Private Hospital, raised in Camberwell or Hawthorn, attend Grammar School from early learning centre through to VCE, and then, after joining University, decide it's imperative to eschew all semblance of wealth and begin to buy overpriced goods that look like battered hand-me-downs using their trust funds and AMEX cards.

Oh, and they also fancy sitting on milk crates. In Fitzroy. Or Brunswick.

Saw a guy on Collins St in a navy suit with all four buttons on the cuff undone. Also wore black tassel loafers and very short pants. Which one of you was it, and what were you thinking this morning?

Contrary to popular belief, you can polish a turd:

He's auditioning for the part of the newest doctor on Grey's Anatomy - McSteezy ...

^^ I say don't pass judgement until you tried them on. They usually look better when you fill them with your foot. That and they can be very comfortable. They're casual shoes anyway so you wouldn't expect any sane person turning up to formal events in those. The leather they use is probably the type of leather used for gloves.
