Need A Tailor? Head To These 3 Markets In Gurgaon For All Kinds Of Alterations

22186 Interested |

We all have a tailor somewhere {or at least our moms do}; the guy who did the last blouse you needed, the guy who made a salwar for a kurta you found online or the guy who can copy a top like a Xerox machine. However, when you need smaller alterations {a broken zip, a rip or a missing button}, head to these three markets in Gurgaon.

The next time you need a quick fix, drop by one of these and enjoy a coffee or a bite while your work gets done.

Vyapar Kendra

This crowded market is reminiscent of Lajpat Nagar – from stationers to sweet shops to kitchenware and fabric, everything is packed into one circular maze. The tailor outside Bulbul{(shop No. 62} is perfect for small tears and open hems and he’s super budget-friendly too but he stays busy doing alterations for the stuff you buy at Bulbul. Instead, you could try the tailor outside Atul Jeans {shop no. 212}; he’s great with denim, no surprise there!

For a little more labour-intensive work, choose between the tailor outside Khadi India { 217} or Lucky {shop no. 197}, they can fix pretty much anything and all these are on the ground floor.

Qutab Plaza

While this is our go-to market for mobile phones and the best gol gappas this side of Gurgaon, there are a couple of tailors who will do your bidding without a prior appointment and for the smallest of jobs.

Look for the masterji who sits near the all-new Desserts Factory, though he’s known to shift base often. Go further into the inner circle of the market and find the ‘crocs’ guy, he has a friendly tailor who sets up shop in the corridor. He’s best for pant alterations but, since he’s quick, you could try him for other things too!

DLF Mall, Arjun Marg

The best place for budget export surplus can only mean one thing – the best place for alterations! Though the market has half a dozen of them, there are two guys who are super-fast and super cheap.

Just outside United Optica, there’s a tailor who can alter a pair of pants in 10 minutes and a kurta in 15. The other tailor is outside Kith and Kin, he’s relatively busier, but totally worth leaving alterations with even if it means picking up the clothes the next day.
