Tailoring a down jacket

Hello,

Has anyone had experience getting a down jacket tailored in Lausanne? Recommendations for Geneva and neighbouring France are helpful too

I know it can be a complicated process and many tailors won't touch these jackets so I'm interested if anyone has actually accomplished this here and what the price was. Thanks!

Re: Tailoring a down jacket

In case anyone is interested for a recommendation, I went to Top Retouches in Lausanne. It's two streets down from the train station. The lady working there is very nice and she did an A+ job. I still can't believe how well it fits now! The price wasn't too outrageous for the amount of work she had to do, 70chf in total.

That's incredibly cheap.... a lot of places will charge almost that to take up a coat hem.
