The store opposite the Lees jeans store, at Peninsula Shopping Centre Basement 1.
The tailor is an indian lady. Very friendly.

It used to be a small shop, now it has expanded to a size of a normal shopfront.

What are you looking to alter ?

Why not ? That's one of the most common reasons why people go for alterations.

Don't have to. Just try on the pair and the tailor will do the necessary markings.

The one at Peninsula Shopping Centre B1 ?

Just for knowledge, suppose someone want to alter the leg, make it slim and taper, does that mean the tailor will have to get rid of selvedge?
