    I think I will try Arthur Korderas for my Z Zegna suit. As for M&E, they alter Prada clothing, shoes and accessories fix. But im looking for someone who only specializes in suit to avoid disappointment. :(

    What about Adriano Carbone? Is he good as well?

    Elite on Church Street in Richmond do the alterations for P Johnson.

    Very dodgy looking place, but the workmanship is excellent there. The shortened the sleeves on my P Johnson coat, and did a very good job. Not sure how well they can assist with "fit" though. They also do excellent work for my girlfriend on her dresses.

    I had a couple of pairs of pants done by him, one was bringing the waist in about 2 inches (!) and shaping them accordingly, and the other was altering around the seat, I thought he did a VERY good job.

    If not mistaken, it is Anna on 126 Russel Street Level 3?

    I have a bunch of suits that needs to be altered. I think I will try

    Adriano Carbone, Arthur Korderas, and Anna for suits and Katrina for shirts, pants, polos and the basic stuff as I heard her pricing is quite reasonable?

    I have an a.b.art watch that needs a new black leather strap I am not keen on another replacement from them as this is the second one which has only lasted 11months any suggestions for brands?

    Arthur is a bespoke tailor. He also used to run a large manufacturing company making samples for Country Road etc.

    For something to suit that style of watch, try Hirsch watch straps. They make an unpadded no visible stitches model you may like

    I'm gonna get myself an Official Aussie SF R&B burgundy knit tie. If anyone see's a young guy in a shabby suit but with a burgundy knit tie walking down the Terrace it may be me.

    No worries man. They have one which also has a rounded edge as opposed to a pointy one, if you're a stickler for details. My girlfriend has the Georg Jensen Henning Koppel watch and the straps on those don't last either, so I got her a replacement one from Hirsch and no-one knows the difference. Except for everyone here now, I guess..

    So you've been chasing after those betel nut girls have you? If you haven't you're not doing a good job at impersonating me.
