Suit alteration / tailor / Zurich

Hi all,


I've done a search of the past threads and haven't found anything recent on the subject, so I thought id ask.


I have a wedding to attend in just over a month, and the groomsman suit I am to wear needs a bit of alteration. Wouldn't have been a problem if I was back in England with the groom etc, but here in Zurich I am a little lost!


Does anyone have any advice on where to go for alterations (about two inches off the waist), English speaking would be of great advantage to get it correct the first time.


many thanks for any advice you can give me,


Kind regards


James

Probably not much use as this guy is in Baden, but he did a good job shortening the sleeves of my husband's jacket...

In Zürich.. (I cannot vouch for any of these of course)

Generally, dry cleaning companies have connections to capable people, but I wouldn't expect any English conversation.

I don't know if this person is available, maybe worth sending an email?

Re: Suit alteration / tailor / Zurich

James, did you have any luck? I have an old suit that was made for me years ago (10?). Fortunately I'm the same size, so it fits... but styles have changed since then and I'd like to have it modernized. But this could mean taking it apart and rebuilding it, in which case I'd need to find someone who understood exactly what I was asking for...

Any recommendations out there?

I went to STECKNADEL in Sihlcity Mall to alterate the length of my coat. The price was reasonable, their services excellent and I was completely satisfied.
