Information here is for both ladies and gents tailoring. We have tried to give you as much information as possible, if there is anything else, please give us a call.

Jacket & Coat

Can the shoulders be extended (made larger)?

No

Can the shoulders be taken-in (made smaller)?

Yes, this means reconstructing the entire jacket shoulders and sides and can take up to 2 days.

Cost: £30 – £55

Can the sleeves be made longer?

In most cases, yes, but only by the amount of fabric that is available on the underside of the sleeve, up to the beginning of the sleeve lining (see pic below). Also keep in mind the if the jacket has working buttons, those holes cut in the fabric cannot be covered or moved. However, we can add a buttonhole or two if necessary to balance the extended sleeved

Cost: £20-35 (extra button hole(s) not included)

Can a suit sleeve be shortened?

Yes, but again, if the buttons on the sleeves are functional, then shortening the sleeve can bring the button holes awkwardly close to the end of the sleeve.  Therefore it can only be shortened by ¾’ maximum but if it is more then that We can also shorten the sleeves from shoulders therefore original style will remain.

Cost: £20 – £28 (shorten from shoulders £40 – £50)
