Coat Alterations – Men’s Wear
‘Clothes should look and feel as if they are made for you.’
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.
