    So kind of just realised the importance of tailors and decided i'd make my first visit, however I have one question. I'm a student and really don't have that much money to spend on tailoring, but still I would like to visit a tailor who will not ruin my clothes. So for my first visit I decided to try M & R Tailors in Sydney and brought in a tweed coat I got at christmas which has since become to big for me. I was charged 80 for bringing the coat in around my chest and 40 for shortening the sleeves at my hands not my shoulders. So what i'm wondering, is this a good cheap price for a tailor in Sydney who won't ruin my clothes. I came here to ask because know one that I know really goes to tailors and I really don't know many decent tailors to compare with.

    Try posting in the Australian Members thread for some more answers, but the prices you mentioned seem pretty reasonable for Aus. If you want to ensure all of the work is being done well, save the extra cash and take it to a bespoke tailor. You can find a list of bespoke tailors in Sydney here.
