Pamir Alterations


Wedding fever is well and truly upon us and it seems everyone is at it – including our own Editor, James! Everyone is busy trying on their best summer clothes in the hope the good weather is here to stay, but if they’re a bit snug after an indulgent few months, take a trip to Pamir Alterations, the top quality tailoring company, for a quick fix.

Dresses and suits can be altered so you look and feel great in all the photos, and that outfit you thought had to be banished to the charity shop can be worn again and again!

The firm was set up four years ago by owner Nader Razae who began it all in a room above a shop on the High Street in Cheltenham, but has now moved into a bright and modern building at 323 High Street, just down the road. He also runs a successful branch of Pamir Alterations in the Eastgate Market in Gloucester.

The company pride themselves on the best quality alterations, many of which can be done in an hour or less and all at the best quality.

Pamir Alterations offers a fast service from shortening and lengthening trousers and jackets; skirts and dresses to adding pockets, altering waists, fitting zips and mending tears in any fabric including leather and PVC. They also alter curtains and offer a range of belt buckles for sale.

Nader said: “With so many other businesses suffering at the moment I am very glad to say that we are expanding and welcoming new and old customers to our shops.”

As well as dealing with his own clients, Nader gets referrals from top name shops in Cheltenham including Cavendish House, The Famous and Long Tall Sally among others.

Rather than throw away much loved clothes, the team can make them as good as new, or in some cases, into entirely different things. Nader said: “I had a gentleman come to see me recently who had a very old, worn pair of trousers. He wanted them cut up and made into a waistcoat so I created a pattern and did it. He was very pleased with the result!”

There is very little that Pamir Alterations can’t put right, and alongside alterations Nader can also make suits and dresses to order, depending on how quickly they are required. He said: “People can bring garments in to be copied or talk to me about what they want and I can design a pattern and make them a unique one off outfit.”

So, if you want to breathe new life into a favourite outfit, or need emergency alterations done in a jiffy, pop into Pamir Alterations in Gloucester or Cheltenham or have a look at their website:
