Simple and Affordable Suit Alteration in Sydney CBD


I've got a suit jacket which is a nice fit except for the arm length. It's a touch long, and so was wondering if anyone had recommendations on where I could get a simple jacket sleeve shortening done in the Sydney CBD? Don't need a high-end bespoke tailor, just someone who would do a good job at a fair price.

Thank you!

    I had the same problem. There were a few shops in Wynyard station (near Hunter St entrance) that did alterations. Both suit jacket sleeves for $10 but that was a while back. Good job. Couldn't tell it was altered. Only thing was that the sleeve had 4 buttons and the price only included restitching of 3 buttons. I offered to pay extra to restich the 4th button but they said they couldn't do it - said their boss didn't allow it. Looks fine with 3 buttons so left it at that. Price probably gone up now and not sure if they are still there as they renovated Wynyard station a few years ago. Make sure know how short you want the sleeves, ie, do you prefer the shirt sleeve to be showing with arm by your side or not.

    • Thanks for that! Sounds like Hunter Connection is the place to go.

        Just went to Hunter connection this morning and found Sydney Metro had closed it for renovations since 20 March. Not sure where all the shops relocated.

        • Thanks for the update, much appreciated!

    Go to TCD dry cleaning in the Hunter Connection - they do alterations in the back. Best dry cleaners and alterations in the CBD.

    • Thanks, though I couldn't find TCD on Google. Suspect they might have closed. Do you know if they're still around?

        Yup, still there - owned and run by an older Asian family so not much online going on.
