    I brought it in to be resized.

    Forgive me for being vulgar,

    But I've always wanted a Baignoire timepiece.

    Might I see it?

    Oh, I-I don't have it on. I brought it in to be resized.


    Does "Bring in" is a phrasal verb here or "in" means inside or into a building?

    Into the building - or rather into the commercial environment where it could made smaller or bigger to fit a new user (or a user whose shape has changed).

    If the speaker did not bring it in to the building in which s/he is standing at the moment of speaking, then 'I took it in' would be more natural than 'I brought it in'.
