Waistcoat Alterations Services
With over 30 years of experience, I have the expertise to alter your waistcoat to perfection. A most important aspect of any Waistcoat is the correct fit. I am able to help you achieve the desired look.
Waistcoat Alterations-The Body:
Waistcoat is the slimmest garment in menswear and it is supposed to be cut with very little tailoring allowance as it is meant to have a very close fit. A well-tailored waistcoat “skims” the body without feeling too tight or showing any fabric pulling. There is typically an adjustable strap at the back to loosen the waistcoat if required. If your waistcoat doesn’t fit you correctly I will adjust the sides to ensure the waistcoat is snug and fits close to the body.
One of the most important elements of a well-fitting waistcoat is the length. It should fully cover the entire waistband of the trouser and never let any shirt fabric show in between. This means the trousers also need to be sitting on the natural waist. If you feel that the length of your waistcoat needs adjusting, visit me for a fitting I will provide my expert opinion.
The neck hole:
Collars are the foundation of any waistcoat. It determines how the fabric will drape over the body. The neck hole of a waistcoat should hug nicely around the back of the shirt collar, without gaping. If the neck-hole of your waistcoat is too large it will create a gap around the shirt collar and allows the waistcoat to shift rather than remain in place. Fortunately, our experienced Master Tailors can easily and efficiently fix this issue.
I can also replace the back panel of lining on your waistcoat. At your first appointment, you will be offered to choose your new lining or perhaps you would prefer me to help you find the perfect match for your waistcoat coat. Whether you choose a lining of a similar color and texture or decide on a contrasting color with a luxury pattern. These are just some examples of Waistcoat Alterations that I can carry out:
