Tailoring

At The London Fashion Work Rooms, we pride ourselves on refitting, recutting, altering and restoring suits.

It may be that over time your body size and posture has changed making it necessary to have your suit nipped and tucked accordingly or perhaps you have fallen in love with a suit but need it tapered to your exact body shape. Call us to make an appointment and pop in for fitting with one of our tailors.

“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society” ~ Mark Twain

How to tell if your suit fits
  • Shoulder pads end with your shoulders.
  • Your flat hand should slip easily into your suit under the lapels when the top (or middle) button is fastened. If you put a fist in, the suit should pull at the button.
  • The top button of a two-button suit — or the middle button of a three-button suit — should not fall below your navel.
  • With your arms at your sides, your knuckles should be even with the bottom of your jacket.
  • Jacket sleeves should fall where the base of your thumb meets your wrist.
  • Between a quarter and a half inch of shirt cuff should be visible.
  • One inch of break.
