    Con Varnalos in Town Hall Arcade will do a great job for $50-$70 depending on the size of the alteration. A bit pricey, but he's very experienced and consistent.

    You hypocrite! You're using one of the most famous democratic related quotes after telling another user to get back in his box and not talk.

    Thanks mate. $50-$70 sounds like good price. One of my colleague paid $45 just to shorten sleeves. Is it normal pricing? Found a nice blazer on sale that is 2 size too big .Also shoulder is about ½ inch too big . So just thinking if its worth altering.
    (Sorry I never altered a jacket before. If its not good fit I always just walk away.)

    Sorry, you failed the EQ test.

    I was telling him to get back in his box because he was being unnecessarily nasty and snide, by his own later admission. The OP might be misguided in your opinion, but he seems nice enough, so why call him stupid etc.? My remarks were aimed at his attitude, not his right to speak up.

    If a young guy is openly belittled by the majority because he chose a pair of AEs instead of Meerkats or whatever it is you fellas shod yourselves with your bonus cheques these days, then free speech is clearly under threat. Personally, I think it's good to see different shoes posted now and then, even if I wouldn't rush out and buy them myself.

    You can disagree by all means, but don't be a nasty prick about it. Leave that for the seppos on the rest of the forum.

    Shoulders are the only part of a jacket that cannot be altered, so definitely would not get this altered (particularly if 2 sizes too big.) That sort of alteration will cost closer to $100-120 anyway.

    Note: wasn't belittling him because he was young. I'm also 20.

    See we're not all "nastry prick seppos" on this forum. Some of us are 20 year old nasty prick seppos.

    You were just belittling him because he has different tastes to yours, not because he was young? Well that's ok then.

    Strong defence. Can I call you if I ever get in a jam with the law?


    The quote is on the front of my RSL club. Unlike you I know what it means without having to Google it.
