Consulting Your Needs

To provide the most suitable service possible, we request that customers visit our shop to discuss the alterations they require. Our experienced tailors will evaluate the item of clothing and arrange a time for the alteration to take place. In some cases, we may be able to complete the work there and then. To complete the alteration, we will invite the customer into our private fitting room and take exact measurements to ensure the perfect fit. Timescales for the alterations will depend on the work involved, although we usually advise that your garment will be ready in around a week.
