The Tailor Shop

Need a new suit for the holidays? Some people here still prefer to go to a tailor or dressmaker, and there are quite a few of these shops around. Most appear to be traditional ones, like the shop shown here.

The best way to have one's hem right!

I'd love to visit that store and order a custom made suit for work!

I'm glad these places still exist—if not here so much, at least somewhere. Hope it doesn't become a dying art..

c'est superbe, on dirait un dessin

& I bet they are always satisfied with how their clothes fit too!
My mother used to sew a lot of my clothes & nothing I've ever bought from a store came close to fitting as well as the clothes she made for me.

Great image of the shop window, the objects at the bottom look very interesting and the overall is très chic!

The trade is slowly going out of business, but what a beautiful shot!
I wanted to get a small whole repared by a woman who had done stiching for Jovanka Broz. She has a shop in Kralja Milana near Slavia, but the hand reparation of taking threads out and again reconstructing with the same threads was very expensive, so I did not do it! The shop is very small and she is not going to be working there for ages!

Nice photo and enjoyed the story... there are fewer of these tailors than there used to be... a dying art I am afraid.
