    I am due to go somewhere posh and swanky. Have got some 2's from the stores, but they need tailoring, ribbons and tapes put on, etc. Time is short though. I have less than 2 weeks, and I am due to collect the uniform in the next 2-3 days.

    Does anyone know of any good military tailors (ideally no more than 30-40 miles from West London) who can turn the above around in less than a week?

    Cheers.
     
  2. Have you tried Woolwich or Wellington?

    Not tried anyone yet, just looking for some tips. The uniform is meandering its way from Lincolnshire to somewhere closer, and the guy who's going to the same event lives near Salisbury. His suggestions are no good, and the turn around is too long. I don't have any experience with this sort of thing outside of our home station, and they are out of the question this time due to distance and time.
     
  4. The old chap at Hills Military tailors in Tidworth is usually quite helpful.
