Our garments have a stylish, yet comfortable fit.
However, to allow adjustments for a perfectly tailored fit for every size and shape,
we have integrated extra seam width to allow fitting adjustments.

 

 

So, don't dispair if your six pack is looking more like a barrel. It can be fixed.
The fit of our garments, that is. To fix that barrel back into a six pack, you're on your own, mate.

 

Please note that mentioned alterations are guidelines for having garments altered at your own local tailor.

If you want your garments made to your measurements or tailored, please contact us in advance.

 

Most common alterations

Trousers

 

Length

 

The easiest alteration for trousers is the length of the legs.
If the trousers are too long, it's a simple matter of shortening the legs. 
Make sure to wear the shoes you are most likely to wear under the trousers, when you get the length adjusted.

Trousers that are too short, can be lengthened up to 5 cm / 2 inches.

 

Waistband

 

An easy way to get more room for your stomach, is having the waistband enlarged by up to 5 cm / 2 inches.

If that is still not enough, there's extra fabric in the side seams, allowing for an additional 4 cm enlargement.

The easiest way to see how much extra space you need is to put the trousers on, and measure the space between the center of the button and the end of the buttonhole (closest to the button). 
If the needed extra space is pushing the limit to what is possible, a larger size is definately better.

Reducing the size of trousers, is about the same, the other way around.
The easiest way to reduce the waistband, is by the centerback seam.

If there is too much extra fabric that has to be taken out, the side seams can carry some of the reduction.

However, this alteration does have its limits. 
A smaller size of trousers is often a better solution if there is a lot of reduction needed.

Waistcoats

 

Waist

If you need more room for your stomach, there is 2 cm extra fabric in the sideseams. This gives up to 8 cm / 3 1/8 inches extra room in the waist.

 

Shoulders

The waistcoats without a collar, have extra fabric in the shoulderseams, where the waistcoat can be enlarged if you need more room for your shoulders or arms.

 

Enlarging both waist and shoulders simply gives a bigger size of waistcoat.

 

Reducing the size of the waistcoat is about the same, the other way around. You can have the waist and/or the shoulderseam taken in. 
For the waist it's easier to simply use the pat with buckle at the back of the waistcoat to narrow the waistline. This way, there is not alteration needed.

 

Overcoats

 

Waist

If you need more room for your stomach, there is 2 cm extra fabric in the sideseams. This gives up to 8 cm / 3 1/8 inches extra room in the waist. 

Reducing the waist can be done in the side seams, but also at the seams in the back of the coat.

 

Shoulders

There is extra room in the shoulderseams.
However, this is a rather drastic alteration and we advise against it. It's better to simply choose a larger size coat if this seems necessary.

 

 

Length

Shortening the overcoat is a simple alteration. 

Lengthening a coat is possible up to 4 cm / 1 1/2 inch.

But if you already know you want a longer coat, let us know in advance.

Shirts

 

Sleeves

Shortening shirt sleeves is a simple alteration. 
Lengthening sleeves not so much. If you need longer sleeves, let us know in advance. 

 

Waist

 

Tailored fit shirts can be altered to give more or less room at the waist, for a wider or a more tailored fit.

There is no way to enlarge the waist on regular fit shirts. They can be taken in slightly, for a more tailored fit.

But as the shirts with a regular fit have no stretch, this alteration is not without its limits.

 

Length

Shortening shirts is a simple alteration. 
But usually, this proves unnecessary, as the bottom of your shirt is supposed to be in your waistband.
