    Tailoring Prices?

    Hey guys,
    Went into my local tailors (I'm based in Norwich) earlier in the week to ask about prices for slimming down some suit trousers. I got quoted 16 to have them slimmed from the knee down and 21 to have them slimmed from higher up. Do these prices seem reasonable?

    I would say they are reasonable. I use London Fashion Workrooms in Covent Garden and they charge 22 pound for full length taper before discount

    On the pricey side. I pay 15 to get them taken in at the waist, slimmed down, and hemmed. But my guy is cheap. Some old cypriot guy working out the back of a clothes shop, who probably hasn't put his prices up since '82. Still, 21 quid to slim the leg seems excessive.

    May I just add prices may be slightly higher in Norwich if there's a lack of alteration studios / tailors around - search around to see if there's any others and just give them a call to get a quote then you'll be able to know yourself if it's expensive or not!

    Yeah he is. I've been happy with everything he's done so far.
