The Best Alterations Houses In Sydney For Menswear By Le Noeud Papillon

This list is very subjective as it is based only on my own experience but I thought I might recommend to you the best alterations houses that I know of for suits, jackets, trousers and jeans.

NB: If you know of any other great alterations houses for menswear  - please feel free to leave a comment and description below.

1. Bellevue Tailor

The current manager and owner of Bellevue Tailor is Elvira Drubetsky who is trained both as a tailor and as a pattern maker. Previously she worked in pattern making and grading for fashion companies offering sports apparel and also with a suiting factory. Her father, Yuri Drubetsky, no longer works the business but his eye for detail was superb. The old story goes that Yuri was a tailor in Odessa in the Ukraine and he was so good at what he did that he was often called to the Kremlin to make alterations for communist party officials and made some suits for the Russian athletes competing in one of the Olympics.

Although Elvira is not the cheapest alterations house, her work is thorough and professional and she is happy to do even the most finicky work.

2. Victor Tomassetti

Victor Tomassetti is one of the best alterations houses in the city. Located on Market Street in the city, Tomassetti Tailoring is the preferred alterations house for some of the more respected international brands and top menswear stores located in the city as well as performing a wide variety of tailoring and making services for the legal fraternity including gowns and wigs.

Victor frequently works on suits from Brioni, Canali, Tom Ford and Gucci that his customers bring him because they don't trust anyone else to do the work. He is a very pleasant sort of fellow and very easy to do business with.

3. Leng Bespoke

By far the greatest alterations service I have used for suits is Leng Bespoke. Leng Bespoke's ability to fit and re-fit garments to owners is without parallel in my own experience. Because Leng Bespoke makes bespoke suits on-site, their alterations service is far more comprehensive for suits than any other alterations house I have used. Leng's service also extends to shirts although I have not tested them with any shirts because I use my own alterations house for this.

The best alterations houses in Sydney for men will have some experience with making suits from scratch. My three recommends are based on the fact that each has the ability to make a suit if needs be - which makes their services more comprehensive.
