    Tailor Prices

    I know your technically pay for time so It'll vary depending on exactly what needs doing but I was wondering what a ball park figure I should be looking to pay for the following.

    Suit Jacket, Sleeve Adjustment.
    Suit Jacket, Bringing it in at the waist.
    Suit Trouser, Length adjustment.

    Sorry if these terms aren't correct

    Many thanks

    Sleeves shortened: 15-20
    Jacket taken in: 15-20
    Trousers shortened: 10

    That's the going rate at my tailor in Nottingham anyway.

    Sounds similar to what I pay in Poole, but Brighton's a little more expensive, I think it depends how much rent your tailor's paying...

    Cheers I've used a tailor once and I was charged a little more than that, but only a couple of quid. Just wanted to check what a "normal" price was before I get a few things adjusted

    50 the lot would be a good price.

    While we're on the subject...

    I've lost quite a bit of weight recently - how much can trousers be taken in? Is there a point at which it's not worth bothering?

    No more than 2" as a rule. Any more than that and you should probably have the trousers re-cut, which is a more expensive job, and one you'll need a very good quality tailor for.

    It's a Suitsupply one, so I'd get their tailor to do it.

    Should have stayed a fat b*****d!
