‘You wear them. You tear them. We repair them’ is the motto of new Italian tailors La Sartoria
There’s a new tailor in town and what they can do with a needle and thread is nobody’s business. Take a look inside La Sartoria in the heart of Reading
Does your sharp suit need some tailoring to get you looking slicker than James Bond?
Or perhaps your dress is in need of the kind of TLC only a fairy godmother can offer.
That’s where La Sartoria come in. The new Italian tailoring and alternations shop has opened up in Reading, and here’s all you need to know.
The new repair and tailoring shop opened up in Market Place in Reading town centre in March. It is run by Francesco Grande together with his wife, Ilenia Mocci who is the shop’s stylist.
Owner, Francesco said: “I fell in love with the Reading town centre a few years ago, finally I found a good opportunity and I opened a shop in Market Place which is an extraordinary and vibrant place full of history.”
“You wear them. You tear them. We repair them” – that’s the simple motto of La Sartoria when it comes to fixing your denim jeans.
Sometimes, what seems like the least significant thing gives the hardest time. An handbag is an investment, so get that pulled thread or that loose strap fixed in no time.
If you would like to adjust the size of your clothes or restore a worn-out clothing item, you are going to need a skilled tailor who knows how to best preserve the garment – and this is the place for that!
Hemming starts from £8, tapering starts from £12, dress alterations start at £10 and suit tailoring from £8.
