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, 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 make sure that any amendments will not be noticeable – 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. This will take our tailor slightly longer but ensures that any detailing and proportions are maintained. We regularly alter and restyle coat collars, cuffs, pockets, in-seam pockets, shoulders and re-new jacket and coat linings.
Coat Alterations: re-lining, restyling, shorten/lengthening sleeves, shorten/lengthening coat, taking in waist and back, narrow shoulders, restyle collars and cuffs
