Men’s Coat Alterations

Our tailors may make adjustments to your coat or jacket to make it fit perfectly. We may take in the side seams or the back centre seam to make your coat or jacket more flattering. We may also trim the length of your coat or sleeves while maintaining the stitch pattern, thread colour, and any other details. When it comes to reducing the length of a coat’s sleeves, we have two possibilities. Shortening can be done from either the crown (shoulder) or the sleeve end. Working from the shoulder preserves the cuff detail or shams, as well as the coat or jacket’s original pattern and proportions. We can narrow or ‘chip’ a coat’s shoulders for a more tailored fit, add padding to define the form, or even out a drooping shoulder. A ‘Square back neck’ or a ripple of excess fabric over the back neck region may be eliminated by simply opening the back neck and shoulder seams, removing excess fabric, and re-stitching as original for a more complementing fit on the body. Coat relining is also a specialty of ours. If the lining of your jacket or coat is worn, we may replace it with a colour that is near to the original, or we can replace it with a colour of your choosing, adding extra pockets or decoration at your request. Basic changes, such as zip replacement or button replacement, are of course something we are pleased to do.

Our competent and highly experienced Tailors will work on your Coat for as long as it takes to make it right. We will tailor our services to your specific requirements and work with you one-on-one. This means that the same Tailor who attended your first fitting will attend to you at all subsequent fittings and work on your coat.
