The Fitting Room on Edward is Queensland’s largest and most trusted suit alterations tailor. Our specialty is the alterations and styling of men’s suits.
With a team of 10 tailors and 3 stylists, we are re-inventing the alterations industry. Instead of being the traditional seamstresses, we are the first alterations business in Australia to teach men how suits should be worn. Our clients are armed with the knowledge of what their shape is, how a suit should fit to complement their style and boost their confidence, and how they should look after their suits to maximise their investment. We also adjust and alter womenswear ranging from casualwear, formalwear and bridal. Our tailors have over 15 years experience tailoring specifically for women to get the perfect fit.
