  • Tailors to alter clothes!

    Hello gals!

    I need your help! I have some jeans that are too long (I have short legs....) and some sleeveless tops that have armholes that are too big ( yes and I am flat-chested too!)

    Do you gals know any good tailors that do alternation? Please tell me and state the price also! TIA!

    There's this shop in Far East, small shop, very near Han's, sorry i forgot the name but i went there once to alter the length of my jeans, $5, they did it in half an hr

    remembered when i was there, a foreign tourist also went to alter her clothes, she was gonna fly off a few days later, so i assume they're pretty good...

          So glad that kab started this thread!

          I need to find a good tailor that can tailor-made pants for me. Pants from most good brands don't fit me. I know that there are a few tailor shops at Chinatown but I need to know specifically if their specialty is tailor-made pants

          Any suggestions will be deeply, deeply appreciated!

                alteration

                not sure whether should be posted in this topic... but wanna ask whether anyone knows of places that can do length alteration and yet still maintain the end....

                i bought a levis 593 with the washed finish...with slight frays....
                but wanna to alter the length and still maintain the frays.... went to queensway to ask around but the people say they will just cut the length and fold it up....

                i've got a friend who had hers jeans altered in hongkong.... couldn't really see that she had it altered.... wonder whether Singapore tailors has this technique....

                  i think there's this shop in peninsula that could do that. they are able to alter engineered jeans while still retaining the curved hem. i think my colleague mentioned that they could also alter jeans retaining the frayed hem. check with your local levis store for the tailor's contact (just ask for the number/place to alter engineered jeans)
