3 Tips for Buying a Suit for Alteration, New York, New York

People trust tailors with one of the most important parts of any special occasion — the attire. After committing attention and detail into planning the perfect event, from the food to the guest list, you want a tailor to devote as much love and care to the alteration of your luxurious suit. However, to ensure they’re able to do their best possible work, the experts at Wo’s Custom Tailoring in Manhattan, NY, offer a few tips on what you need to consider when buying a garment for alteration.

A Quick Guide to Choosing a Suit for Alteration

1. Get Your Measurements

alterationWhile it’s not always noticeable, the size and shape of your body fluctuate regularly. For a more seamless process, go to the tailor first to get up-to-date measurements, so you have a better sense of what to buy.  

2. Err on the Large Side

Although it seems like tailors perform miracles, they can only work with what they have. It’s challenging, if not impossible, to let out a suit when there isn’t enough material. On the other hand, it is always easier to make a big suit smaller by cutting or bringing in the fabric. When buying a suit for alteration, remember: bigger is better.  

3. Buy & Bring It in Early

It’s important to leave enough time for tailoring before an event, as the garment typically requires several sessions of alterations. It takes time and thoughtfulness to get the adjustments right and will likely need to come in for several fittings.    

Whether you need garment alterations for a wedding or a business conference, the staff at Wo’s Custom Tailoring will ensure you look your best. In addition to their friendly and reliable service, they also have a passion for quality and attention to detail. Call them at (212) 988-9889, or learn more about the services they offer online.
