Fur Alterations – Fake Fur Alterations
Believing in animal welfare and ethical consideration of wearing fur sensibly, we support the idea of revamping existing and inherited fur jackets and coats. We alter, restyle and repair any type of fur as well as fake fur. Whether it is a fashion statement, vintage garment or an inherited fur coat from your mum holding emotional value, we have specialised tailors and machinery to work with all types of fur. By updating an inherited fur you can turn an old fashion beauty into a new signature piece expressing a modern, very current feel being timeless at the same time.

Sometimes we can provide you with a variety of solutions, some of which might save on costs – ask your fitter.
Charges: Our charges are based on time at a rate of £60+VAT per hour. Depending on the complexity and construction of your garment, charges may vary.
Coat Alterations & Restyling
D&A is well known for its experience and excellence in altering formal clothes. The difference a professional alteration can make to a coat is not only visible but also tangible; a feeling of being at ease with your look and a natural confidence in your appearance. For 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. We take them into consideration when we take your measurements and perfect the alterations.
Our professional jacket and suit tailors look after our coat tailoring and ensure that any alterations will be as invisible as possible. Any original type of stitching will be continued and bindings re-applied. One of the most common alterations on coats and jackets is shortening sleeves. This can be a straight forward when the sleeve is to be shortened from the cuff. If any detail like vents, working button holes, embroidery or buckles are involved, we take sleeves up from the shoulders if sleeve width allows. This will take our tailors slightly longer but ensures that any detailing and proportions are maintained to keep the original look and finish.
