Charges

Jeans alterations are part of our standard price list. Shortening jeans, charges start at £25 – £45 depending on your chosen finish. Different styles, construction, fabric, detailing and finishes make it difficult to offer our clients a standard price list. Therefore, we charge by time at a rate of £60+VAT per hour for fitting, alteration and tailoring service. If you would like to find out more and inquire further, please get in touch! We sometimes suggest to send us a photograph of your garment and also you wearing it. This can help us to provide with an indicative idea of costing as a starting point.

Jeans & Denim Alterations

 

For the everyday look a good pair of great fitted jeans are one of the most important basics in our wardrobe. Differences in jeans finishes, raw or pre-washed and trouser styles are extensive. Prices for a pair of jeans can vary significantly depending on the type you choose. Designer jeans often hold embellishments and detailing. Some authentic ones are manufactured locally and sometimes jeans makers have signed up to an honourable ethical approach. All of this is reflected in pricing. We regularly alter jeans brands such as: A.P.C., Gucci Jeans, Armani Jeans, All 7 Mankind Jeans, Levi Jeans, Acne Jeans, Victoria Beckham Jeans, Vivienne Westwood amongst others. 

 

‘When in Doubt wear a Denim’

 

Jeans alterations seem to be straight forward and they mostly are. But if you have a good pair of jeans, the finish is crucial. Type of stitching, colour of thread and fabric as well as its heaviness and condition are assembled with a particular look in mind. Each brand has its very own interpretation of its authentic jeans look. However, to effect the ultimate jeans alterations, it should not be noticeable and wholly integral to the overall look of your particular brand. 

Design & Alter offers an extensive range of visual samples for jeans finishes. Classic top stitch and original jeans hem finishes, alteration styles for you to choose of. The aim is to make your favourite jeans look like they were ‘made’ for you, in every sense – in fact to make them look ‘unaltered’ but only you know they are customised! This can include maintaining a distressed and ragged jeans finish if this is what the original pair of jeans suggests.
