Some random thoughts came and crossed my mind, do tailors actually alter trench coats?

I have a dress pants which is a regular fit and would like to make it a slim fit, the price for the pants is pretty expensive therefore i would not want to go to an alteration shop. Does anyone know how much would it cost?

Thanks biggrin.gif

What's the turn around time to get a suit made? Is two weeks sufficient?

That is to short bro..

But it really depends on how busy your tailor is..

What happens is that you make an appointment with your tailor..

Maybe in 2 weeks you make another appointment for fittings..

If you are satisfied with the fit you will ask the tailor to go ahead with your suit.. (Aprox 4 weeks)

If you're not satisfied tell him/her what changes need to be made and the process goes on till you are satisfied biggrin.gif

Regret going to Lords. Not a good experience so far. Let's see how the suit turns out and I'll share my experience further.

Hey buddy, what happened?

Don't forget you are the customer, you could go for re fits until you are fully satisfied with the final product biggrin.gif

I gave Page tailor a try as their price is really value for money...i spend RM1400 for a 3 piece suit and their workmanship is actually not bad. Cayman was way over price for me..... i think about RM2K plus for a 3 piece suit....

To me service is important and to get a tailor that actually listens to wat u need..... thats super important!

Page also gave me some freebies like a bow tie and did some free alteration for my work pants.....

So, give Page (Sri Petaling branch) a try lar..... look for Mr Raymond.

P/s: I'm not recommending Page Tailor becoz of the freebies but i really do liked their service and workmanship yah! They can give me double the freebies but if their service sucks i will also mentioned that....
