    Hi guys, new here. I've just bought a tom ford suit online - looking for recommendations for a tailor in Melbourne (either in the city or in the eastern suburbs) that would do an affordable/good job of attaching the buttonholes on the sleeve and with whatever else might potentially need adjusting? Was also curious as to how important is to have a "good" tailor hem suit pants - is it something that's fine to be done by one of the alteration franchises (Looksmart, etc.)? I've always gone through these types of franchises in the past and was wondering if the difference is worth looking for a better tailor.

    Thanks

    Pretty sure every page in this thread from the past few months will have recommendations on tailors and cobblers in Melb and Syd.

    We never recovered from the new forum software. Need @Coxsackie and his ilk back.

    On the point of trews being altered: extremely important! You want someone to spend some attention to your hips and gait. Those franchises - more often than not - hem one leg, with no interest in bio-mechanics.
    As for the broader question of those who alter; American Tailors still alter, I think, or pop around the corner to Charles Maimone.

    IMG_6757.JPG Any ideas on who might be able to alter a leather jacket to be able to attach a shearling collar (and make the collar ideally)? Picked up this leather jacket from christys on sale (thanks to the fella who posted about the sale a while ago) and I like everything except the collar.
