Top Jacket Alterations related questions

If you prefer to maximise the life of your old jackets and suits without shelling out on new ones, then booking an alteration service is a wiser choice. Not only does it help you save a fortune, but it also gives new life to your jackets. You can even get a hold of those vintage, off-the-rack jackets without having to worry if they are too fit or too loose.

Most alteration specialists can bring their sewing kit for the job, so you don't necessarily need to provide anything for your service. In case you feel more at ease using your own tools, you can prepare a measuring tape, sewing machine, needles, threads, safety pins, seam ripping, and scissors. You can also directly ask your Tasker to know the exact materials they will need.

It depends on the complexity of the jacket alteration needed. Trimming the sleeves and hems can be completed in just a few hours, usually within the day. But if it requires your Tasker to take in or let out seams, narrow the armholes, or any similar alterations, then the service might take longer. For a more accurate estimation, feel free to ask your Tasker directly.

It's ideal to have jackets laundered and dry cleaned before sending them to your alteration specialist. Since most of them shrink when washed or cleaned, you can avoid unpleasant surprises when altering them, like coming up way too short than needed. As for your laundry needs, you can also get someone tosend your garments to the nearest laundry shop and have it delivered back to you within the day.

What do jacket alteration services include?

A jacket alteration specialist can carry out all sorts of repairs and adjustments to make your jacket fit you as comfortably as possible. They can stitch and fix any fitting or fabric issue, shorten or lengthen sleeves, or take in or let out the seams to complement your chest and stomach.

They also know their way around various fitting and sewing techniques to alter your jacket based on your preferences. Here are some of the jacket alteration services you can get and what to expect from each:

Leather jacket alterations

If your leather jacket no longer fits you right, don't just let it sit in your cabinet or storage. Leather alterations near you can give you the appropriate adjustments so you can wear it in time for fall or winter! Usually, your Tasker first checks the quality of your jacket to make sure that it can handle the necessary alterations. Depending on your needs, they can shorten the sleeves, replace the lining, or narrow its shoulders.

Once your leather jacket fits you perfectly, why not take it out for a spin? If you love fashion and documenting your outfits, you can even hire a professional fashion photographer to take stylish pictures of you with your fabulous leather garment!

Suit jacket alterations

Are you stressing over an oversized suit jacket for your formal event or meeting? Whether you need it today or still have a few weeks to spare, we can help you find an available Tasker who can assist. They can resize or restyle your jacket by adjusting the sleeves, tweaking the lapel shape and collar roll, or altering the sides so that it looks fitted from your shoulder down to your bust.

Now that you have the perfect suit jacket, you can focus on prepping yourself! We can also connect you with expert hair stylists who can style your hair according to your preference–whether you want a clean and sleek look or going for something a bit more stylish and edgy!

Jacket zipper repairs or replacements

It can be quite frustrating to wear a casual or winter jacket only to find a broken zipper that just won't budge. Luckily, repairing and replacing zippers are relatively quick, and don't even cost that much. For optimum convenience, hire a jacket tailor near you who can do jacket zipper replacements. In no time, you can wear your jacket again with a full zipper up!
