Alterations

“Dress everyday as if you are going to face your worst enemy.”

 

More often than not, it’s the cut and fit of a suit that makes you feel like a million bucks when you get ready each morning. By specialising in menswear alterations, our modern-day tailors know the anatomy of a suit inside out. You simply need to put on your garments, and we will work out the necessary alterations to get the perfect fit. Quite often, a simple lifting of the hem, or nip in of the waist can drastically improve the look of a suit.

Some of the alterations we can do to improve your look include:

Jackets

  • Shorten or lengthen sleeves
  • Take in, or let out the torso area to fit
  • Adjust shoulders seams if it is too big, or if the sleeve head doesn’t fit correctly
  • Shorten the jacket length
  • Taper sleeves width
  • Repair or replace the lining

Trousers

  • Shorten or lengthen the hem length
  • Resizing the waist band to be 1-2 sizes larger or smaller
  • Increase of reduce crutch length
  • Taper the legs for a slimmer look
  • Add saddle in crutch to protect against wear
  • Mend worn out crutch areas

Dresses and skirts

Custom Made Business Shirt

We are the modern day dressmaker, tailor, seamstress, stylist. We will help you create a beautiful and functional wardrobe to help you feel more confident and wield more influence.

Our services include fully custom made business shirts.

Most people actually struggle with buying shirts off the rack that fit properly.  After working with clients for over 20 years, we have heard the same problems over and over again.

  • The sleeves are too short or too long
  • The neck button doesn’t do up properly
  • The body is too loose and balloon like

Having custom made clothing will avoid all of that, and you will receive perfectly fitting clothing every time.
