‘Clothes should look and feel as if they are made for you.’
When our professional jacket and suit tailors alter your coats, they ensure that the alterations are made as invisible as possible. Original stitching and detailing is maintained, binding is re-applied. Regular coats and jackets alterations are ‘shortening sleeves’. When the sleeves have no detail, this can be straight forward. The length is taken off the cuff. If any working buttonholes, embroidery or buckles are involved, the sleeves need to be shortened from the shoulders. It will take our tailors slightly longer but ensures that any detailing and proportions are maintained to keep the original look and finish. This is important for designer and high quality wear.
