Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

hi, the zip of my winterjacket is broken and the local green lanes tailor in the launderette couldn't fix it. it's a North Face jacket and apparently these are tricky. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good tailor i could try?

many thanks

Magic wand dry cleaners opp the Salisbury?

George's Tailor in Wightman Road near Harringay station. A proper family run tailors. 020 8341 3614

thank you. he doesn't do alterations. just for future reference

Try Alpkit, they repair non-Alpkit brands, they have a specialist repair workshop for outdoor gear 


Lancashire Sports Repairs are also specialists in that kind of thing. May be a bit expensive with postage though.


FYI, I took a cycling top to my local dry cleaners/ tailors to replace a broken zip - but they wouldn't touch it as their sewing machine needles cant deal with that kind of lycra-ish material.  Also looking for suggestions on that type of sports material, I'm guessing that outdoor jackets might fall into the same category?

I highly recommend Nida Needles in the Wood Green Shopping City Market Hall. They've fixed zips on chunky travel bags for me, as well as invisible mending on a nice old jacket.

Kaya Tailoring on Turnpike Lane almost opposite the old Jai Krishna. I use them all the time.
