Suit Alterations and Tailoring: The Importance of a Good Tailor.

Let’s face it trying to find something that fits perfectly is nearly impossible. Where ever you are on the weight or height spectrum your fashion options can be limited. You probably have a wardrobe full of clothes that you have never worn and you get frustrated when you go into stores and nothing fits so you just stick to the trusted jeans and top. If you have struggled to find clothes to fit your broad shoulders, wide hips, small waist, longer or shorter legs, then you need a good tailor.

A good tailor can be hard to find but at The Zip Yard we pride ourselves in having highly qualified, experienced tailors to carry out any Suit Alterations. It is not just a case of being able to shorten trousers or take in a jacket, a good tailor should also be able to communicate with you about what you want and what you need. They are knowledgeable about cut, fit, fabrics and can also advise you on what will suit your body shape, give you suggestions and ideas as to what looks good on you and what the current trends are. They are not afraid to give an honest opinion when getting your Suit Alterations.

Clothes that fit well will make you feel and look better. You will look taller, slimmer and more proportioned. Anyone can reap the benefits from tailoring. Today clothes are mass produced but people are not so next time you are about to put back that gorgeous dress that didn’t quite fit in the right places think again!

For men, tailoring a suit will add the finishing touches to an important wardrobe staple through the correct Suit Alterations. Even if it is only worn twice a year, a tailored suit gives a completely different impression to one that has been plucked off the rack. The shoulders will be emphasised, the trousers will not be to loose or too long, the overall look will fit your body and make you look sharper. The same applies to tailored shirts.

Tailoring is a practice that has a long history and tradition for both men and women. For centuries, tailoring has played a major part in the lives of people from all walks of life. It was not until the mass production of ‘made to measure’ clothing that people started to try to squeeze themselves into a pre conceived notion of a ‘size’.

Give yourself the gift of good tailoring and alterations. Call into any one of The Zip Yard stores nationwide and see how great a well fitting dress, suit or coat will make you feel.
