Coat Alterations & Restyling
D&A is well known for its experience and excellence in altering formal clothes. The difference of any alteration to a coat is visible but also tangible for you wearing it. It is the feel of being at ease with your looks and a natural confidence in your appearance. Your fitting appointment: To fit your coat well, we need you to bring any garments you would like to wear underneath your coat – a jacket, a heavy knitted jumper or a waistcoat. They need to be taken into consideration when we take your measurements and perfect the look.
Coat alterations are looked after by our professional jacket and suit tailors who ensure that amendments will be as unnoticeable as possible. The original type of stitching will be continued and bindings re-applied. One of the most common alterations on coats and jackets are shortening sleeves. This can be a straight forward process and the sleeve will be shortened from the cuff but if any detail like vents, working button holes, embroidery or buckles are involved, sleeves are taken up from the shoulders if width allows. This will take our tailor slightly longer but ensures that any detailing and proportions are maintained to keep the original look.
