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.
We are re-inventing the alterations industry. Instead of being the traditional seamstresses tucked away in a corner, we are the first alterations business in Australia to promote dressing well. We arm clients 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.
Previously known as Brisbane City Clothing Alterations, we are an award winning second generation family business, with a team of eight tailors and two stylists. Dozens of major suiting retailers choose The Fitting Room as their partner tailor for clothing alterations and repair, including Ermenegildo Zegna, Hugo Boss, Mitchell Ogilvie, and dozens more.
