The answer depends on what kind of tailoring it is. Made-to-measure suits usually take around six weeks, while bespoke suits take about eight weeks, including the various fittings. If you’re rushing to get a suit for a formal event or your wedding, it might be better to get an off-the-rack piece and have it altered instead.
You can find reliable suit tailors right here on Airtasker! To start:
Select the “Post a task” button and fill out the form.
Include your location, desired appointment date, what kind of tailoring you need, and your budget.
Tap “Get quotes” and wait for offers from tailors near you.
From there, you can view their rates and customer reviews, then select the Tasker who best fits your needs. Then, tap to confirm your appointment. Easy-peasy!
Made-to-measure suits use an existing pattern that is modified to fit your measurements. Choose a design based on the style or the fabric, but that’s about it in terms of customisation. If you want more freedom when it comes to crafting your ideal suit, it’s best to go bespoke. With bespoke tailoring, your suit will be customised based on your measurements, lifestyle or occasion, and even the little nuances when you move.
Here’s a guide to what your suit tailor can usually do to make your suit fit better:
Shorten the hems of your trousers
Maximise the length of your trousers
Narrow your trouser leg width
Shorten, lengthen, or narrow jacket sleeves
Change garment linings
Add buttons to sleeves
Cinch the waist
Tailoring suits typically cover suit alterations for off-the-rack items, suit repairs, preparing made-to-measure suits, and crafting bespoke pieces. These services are the same as what’s offered at your local suit tailor shop, but it's much more accessible on our platform since you can find a suit tailor who can straight go to your location. You won’t need to leave your home or office, nor worry about making it to your fitting.
While there may be slight variations depending on the Tasker you’re working with, here’s what you can typically expect from Airtasker’s suit tailor service:
One of the more affordable ways to get a fashionable suit is to purchase one off-the-rack. But, more often than not, these ready-to-wear suits don’t fit correctly. The pants may be a mite too short, the cuffs of the jacket too long, or you might want to narrow the sleeves and legs. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to get a suit that fits the widest part of your body and your shoulders (since jacket shoulders are tricky or almost impossible to alter). From there, your suit tailor can cinch in the narrower parts, such as the waist or sleeves.
There are some limitations of suit alterations: suit tailors may be able to change collars, fix shoulder divots, and change the vent openings of a jacket. But, they usually can’t reshape the quarters of a jacket, change the lapels, nor change the button profile (from two-button to three-button).
Caught your cuff on something sharp? Got a tiny hole in your favourite suit? No worries - a Tasker can get it fixed. Just note that some rips or holes will require reweaving, or even a patch if they’re too big.
Made-to-measure suits are based on an existing pattern and modified to fit your body measurements (hence, made-to-measure). Suit tailors typically offer this as an option that’s more affordable and less time-consuming to make versus bespoke suits, but fit better and are more premium than a typical off-the-rack.
If you want a suit that’s made precisely to your measurements, taste, and even lifestyle, then bespoke suit tailoring is the way to go. Here, you get to work with your tailor to create a suit that’s perfect for you. With custom tailoring, you can choose the fabrics, the cut, the kind of buttons you want, and so on. You get to co-create a suit that fits the occasion at which you’re wearing it - whether it’s a lightweight work suit for the summer or a suit for your fall wedding.
Tailoring is just one of the many services you can get on our platform. You can also find reliable house sitters for the day of your big event, as well as laundry services that can safely dry clean your suit. Just tap “Post a task” to get started.
