The one near Lloyds bank is okay, but I not exceptional turnaround time. Also I don't know how "professional" they are on the tailoring side (dry cleaning is fine, not debating that....too much). For example I went in there a while back to get a button replaced and the don't even have any buttons on hand. What sort of tailor is that?
In contrast the tailor further north on Tower Bridge Road
(closer to the vegetable shop, lighting shop etc) immediately fund a button sewed it on and I left there in less than 5 minutes. If I had tailoring to do, I'd go there first.
That's not to knock the other guys. I do use them regularly for laundering and dry cleaning. I find them to be very service oriented and positive. Exceptionally so by London standards in fact. But I'd wonder about a tailor that doesn't have any buttons, you know?
