4 Pieces of Clothing to Have Altered by a Tailor, Manhattan, New York

Most people get fitted for wedding outfits like suits, tuxedos, and wedding dresses. However, these aren't the only pieces of clothing worth having altered. If you want to customize your wardrobe for an improved fit, consider bringing these four pieces of clothing to a tailor, so they can transform your look.

Clothing Items Worth Having Altered by a Tailor

1. Blazers

For many people, blazers won’t fit well when they are first purchased. Thankfully, it’s easy for tailors to take in the sleeves, add a tuck in the waist, and alter the lapel to help you look dapper. tailor

2. Trousers

Walking around with your ankles showing because your pants are too short can be embarrassing unless you’re going for a high-waters look. Additionally, having pants that are too long can result in tripping. Tailors can easily adjust the hem of a pair of trousers to better fit, as well as take in or let out the waist to make sure you’re comfortable.

3. Formal Dresses

Whether you’re getting ready for a charity ball, a fundraiser, or a school dance, you’ll feel more confident if your outfit is customized to fit you. Tailors can take in or let out the bust of a dress, adjust the hem length, and even add or remove straps to help you look and feel your best. They can also bring in the waist of dress shirts, adjust the sleeve length, and customize the collar to match your date’s outfit.

4. Vintage Clothing Items

Thrift shops offer unique opportunities to stumble upon vintage finds that’ll add some variety to your wardrobe. Unfortunately, many of the clothing you come across won’t fit right away. That’s when it’s time to go to a tailor. They can adjust pants, rompers, skirts, suits, jackets, sweaters, button-downs, and more to fit your body while maintaining their original, funky style.
