From this, I take it Mr and Mrs Tran have shut down? They were legendary.

I should mention also one point of difference is that tguyen (prob not spelt right) always remembers my name also, I hadn’t been in there for about a year I reckon and he still remembers everytime.

There’s a small shop in the Gungahlin Marketplace near the video store run by an Asian couple. Not sure about their prices, never actually had any alterations done by them, did get a quote once from them of $20 to replace a zip.

I use TT also, have done on and off for about 10 years. They are cheap, if you are getting shirts slimmed though be careful he doesn’t put darts in the back of the shirt instead of taking it in through the seems, the cleaner but more time consuming way. Otherwise great though, I have a suit there getting done at present.

The one in the Canberra centre next to JB used to be good, but the guy who owns it, Rabi took a job at the franchises head office helping to open other shops and moved back to Sydney and it went downhill quick smart, the Asian lady in charge now is hopeless so I won’t go back anytime soon.

i think the vietnamese place on moore st (around the corner from the pide house) is about $15 for pants being altered – their price list is on the door though, you won’t even have to go inside to ask!

Another vote for TT Fashions at Baileys.

You wont get it for less than $10-, TT Fashions upstairs in the Baileys arcade is the cheapest around, he is great, many clothing retailers in Civic use him too.

okay. no worries. i was just wondering if anyone knows the good deal for everything in terms of price, quality and service. less than $ 10 perhaps?

Sorry Fairytale – I was kidding. I really need to stop my sarcasm sometimes 😉 It is true about her being good at taking up jeans and darning though.

I think that’s a rofl right there.

The tailor upstairs in Bailey’s Arcade is the best I’ve come across for quality, price and service.

thanks everyone.

mostly alterations for jeans and pants. where about in moore st is the one you’re talking about toriness? i know the one in garema place and canberra centre are all expensive ;( not worth spending that much of money just for alterations. much your mum will charge it btw? thanks …

My Mum was pretty good at taking my jeans up as a young tacker. I’ll ask her and get back to you! Needs any socks darned too?!

if you mean clothes and in civic, don’t go to the place in the canberra centre by EB games – go to the vietnamese place over on moore st, it is cheaper!

Alterations to what? Clothes? House? Gender…?
