I have been to Chalk Tailor's a few times for alterations and have always been really happy with the service. The owner is really friendly and she always gets the work done quick. Due to the current crisis I had been looking to buy a face mask and had been struggling to find a decent one online. I... then read an article about local tailors making masks. Therefore I messages Chalk Tailors and spoke with the owner and she said she would be happy to make one for me. A couple of days later she messaged me and I went to the store to pick it up. The owner was very professional and maintained strict social distancing. The mask is made from leather and fitted to my head perfect Its also comfortable and easy to breath in. I liked it so much that I have ordered some more to be made for my more

Amazing service. As my alteration was small, she did it in the shop there and then, and at half of her already fair price! I didn't catch her name but she's a really nice woman in her 20s who's recently set up the business. Definitely give Chalk a go!

Friendly, polite and professional service. I needed the sleeves of a new jacket shortened. Chalk made a perfect job of it and was able to provide a quicker turn around than I expected. I definitely recommend Chalk to anyone with a tailoring alteration that needs attention.

Great service and reasonable prices. My favorite jumper sleeve had come undone all the way up from the wrist to elbow, it was ready the next day and looks brand new. Also had a pair of trousers shortened, really happy with the service.
