How long do alterations take?
We ask for a week, urgent orders can be facilitated on an individual basis.
What is the cost to alter dresses?
Dress alterations cannot be estimated over the web or phone because there are so many variables with women’s dress. Please bring your alterations in the store for a free consultation.
When does a jacket become impossible to fix? When a gentleman fundamentally changes sizes. In real terms a jacket cannot be altered if you gain more then 25lbs. If a gentleman loses more then 35 lbs it becomes impossible to fix.
Once again there is no substitute for a professional to see. We always recommend bringing in any garments for a free consultation.
We do alter women clothing on a semi limited basis. Even though we are a mens store we do have some phenomenal tailors that focus only on female clothing. Alterations on women garments such as dresses, skirts, trousers, & gowns are all subject to pricing on an individual basis. Since there are an innumerable amount of variables in women clothing, pricing cannot be calculated unless the garment is inspected in person by one of our Master Seamstresses. Please visit out store to get a quote in person!
All alterations are subject to review on individual basis. There are may different types of construction in garment making. Like human fingerprints every garment is different and certain garments require higher levels of care. For this reason each garment is subject to price review based on the level of construction, quality of garment, and amount of time it will take our tailors to complete the task.
