    I was pleased with the work done by the tailor under Narau house. I forget the boss's name but his 2IC Olga is a stout Russian woman with that no-fuss touch that makes you feel confident that she knows what she's doing. Wait was one week for cuff lengthened and sides of jacket tapered. I expect they would do it quicker if time's an issue.

    Katrina's is great. i just had half a dozen shirts taken in at the waist (side seams, darts), and expect to do another half dozen there.

    May I ask how much did it cost you (or anyone, in this matter) to have those shirts taken in? I'm also looking to do the same for a couple of my shirts. Thanks in advance! Been looking for a reasonably good tailor in melbourne from sometime now..

    Stumbled upon this thread in my research for a good tailor around Melbourne from Google. Great thread, indeed! It's cool that Melbournians are keeping it real down here at SF.

    About a fortnight ago I got some darts put in a shirt for $14 from memory. I am sure if you take in a few you'd get a fair discount.

    Much appreciated. Will definitely be checking the place out and see how I go. Any experience on the altering of jackets and coats? Recently thrifted a plaid flannel coat that would definitely need to be taken in on its arm hole and side seams.

    I have nothing but good things to say, same with other Melbourne based members. Flick through the Australian Members thread for more endorsements.

    Just checking for any recent recommendations for Katrina's before I call and book in a jacket alteration.

    Same here. Any recent impressions of Katrina's? I have a suit jacket needing slight alterations and the pants need hemming, taking in and tapering.

    i've used them for a couple of things this year. they've been pretty good. not cheap though. couple of things I've had them adjust but the workmanship has been fine.
