Suit Jacket Alterations

Unless you’re extremely lucky with the fit of off the rack suit jackets or you get all of them made to measure, chances are you’re going to need some alterations. The good news is that when it comes to getting a suit jacket tailored, a little work goes a long way in terms dialing in fit.

Our suit jacket alterations covers the most common alterations – jacket length, sleeve length, chest, shoulders and collar – discusses how each should fit the individual and whether or not each particular alteration is worth the cost.

I’m often asked how much it costs to get a suit – or other basic menswear items – tailored. The answer?  it depends. Alterations and tailoring services vary depending on the tailor, their location and the quality of their services.

However, if one thing is certain, it’s that the cost associated with alterations is always money well spent.

Suit Alterations You Should Make

CL 23 - PM

 

Suit Alterations You Should Make To Off The Rack Suits. Off-the-rack suit aren’t designed to fit perfectly, so if you don’t have the cash for an expensive bespoke Suit, you’re gonna need a tailor. With thread, needle and a flick of the wrist this rare breed of clothing magicians can alter your not-custom suit into something as close to custom as possible — all while saving you a bundle.

One of these wizards is Eve, who’s been holding down sewing duties for over 25 years at Eve’s Alterations in Kissimmee Florida especially when it pertains to off the rack suit alterations. Soak up these recommendations for the seven alterations you should make to every off-the-rack suit, and never again will a great deal be ruined by a terrible fit.

These are 6 off the rack suit alterations you should make to your suits.

Jackets

  1. Narrow the sleeves: They shouldn’t be restrictively tight, but they shouldn’t be baggy either — slim is the ideal middle-ground.
  2. Shorten the sleeves: The proper length should show a half-inch of shirt cuff (called “linen”) when your hands are at your sides.
  3. Jacket length: The whole length thing is variable, as we all have torsos, arms, and legs of different lengths. But a good rule to go by is that the jacket should cover your ass.

Pants

  1. Pant length: Cuffed or non-cuffed? Non-cuffed is a more modern, flush look. Full break? Half? No break at all?! It’s up to your personal taste.
  2. Take in/let out the waist:  This is typically going to be the former (if not, it might be time for a gym membership). Baggy is bad, but Victorian corset choke is worse. You should be comfortable when you sit, stand, and walk.
  3. Narrow the pant leg: For a slimmer look, have the tailor pull the fabric in from around your shin up through your thigh.

Of all the factors involved in making a man look good, fit is paramount. It’s the difference between looking sloppy and turning out sharp. Making a great first impression or shooting yourself in the foot.

Yet finding the perfect-fitting shirt, pants or suit is virtually impossible when buying off-the-peg. Sure, pull and tug your way through a few different sizes and you’ll find one that fits well but a glove-like fit can’t be bought.

Which is where a Eve’s Alterations comes in. With a good tailor on speed dial you’ll have all kinds of sartorial sorcery at your fingertips — from giving tired pieces a new lease of life to making a high street suit look a whole lot more expensive.

Pants Waist Alterations Kissimmee

1. Wear your pants at your natural waist. Too high and you look like Grampa, too low and you look like a high school kid. Your waistband should sit 2-3 inches below your belly button.

2. Pants should almost touch the ground without your shoes on. Jeans can be a little longer, since they shrink a bit when you wash them.

3. One pleat, maximum. If you’re a big guy, like I am, you learned somewhere along the line that pleats are slimming. They’re not. At best, they look like you’re a big guy trying to look slimmer; at worst, they actually make you look heavier because they pull out across you, broadening your appearance. In any case, the job of a pleat is to maintain that crease sown the front of your pants. For pants without that crease (and many with it), pleats are unnecessary; for pants that need the pleat, they only need one.

4. 1” to 1 1/2” cuffs. Or not. There’s nothing wrong with cuffs, there’s nothing wrong with no cuffs. They are understood, however, to be an older man’s style – not in a bad way, think sophisticated, experienced, distinguished, and conservative. For younger men, a cleaner line is generally preferred.
