Trouser alteration


I was absolutely thrilled with my trousers and waist coat. I described a pair of Gaultier trousers I had 20 years ago and Mihaela was able to recreate them for me perfectly. The fit is stunning. I could not be happier with the finished result of my waistcoat and trousers for my wedding

Top Trouser Alterations related questions

There are many things to consider. For starters, your waistband should sit at or below your navel. Your trouser's rise should also be long enough to place of the band properly. The hems can touch the shoe, but they shouldn't be puddling to avoid looking sloppy. Lastly, you shouldn't have the urge to pull the crotch or rear area from time to time. Other than these, your trousers are either too tight or too loose.

Standard trouser alterations, which usually involve the inseam, waist, seat, crotch, and leg width, are mostly doable within the day. Complex ones, like adding new belt loops, swing creases, removing pleats, and recutting can take 3-5 days to weeks. You can talk to your Tasker about your desired timeline and have it arranged accordingly.

Yes. You can do basic alterations on your own, but if you want to be sure of the measurements, quality, and subtlety of the alteration, it's best to leave it to the professionals. They have the right tools, skills, and experience to have it done. Plus, you can save your time and energy from doing it yourself!

The chances of altering your trousers to a bigger size can be slim to none, and it depends if the piece has an extra amount of fabric to work on. Usually, tailored or bespoke items have a few inches of allowance for this, but off-the-rack have none. Making trousers smaller is much easier, and you can go down to two sizes maximum, depending on your comfortability.

It's best to take note of what tailors can and can't do to manage your expectations. Tailors can only do so much, especially when your trousers don't have enough fabric. It would also help for you to know what fashion trends you would like to explore, so your Tasker can match them with your preferences and what suits you the best.

Yes! It's ideal for you to wash any piece of clothing, especially newly-bought ones, before altering them. Doing so shrinks the garments down, and it'll also be easier for your tailor to get more precise measurements. Usually, the size of a clothing item after its first wash is its real size. If you shorten your trousers before washing them, they may end up being too short for you.

What do trouser alteration services include?

Trouser alteration services involve shortening, lengthening, and adding a few elements to your pair. Whether it's for a special event or just for everyday wear, skilled Taskers in your area can provide quality trouser alteration services, from standard adjustments to more complex fixes. Here are the most common trouser alterations Taskers can do for you:

Altering trouser inseam

It's normal to get trousers that are either too long or too short for you. That's why most stores sell them with an unfinished hem so that tailors can easily alter them according to your preferred length. They can either fold and sew the bottom of your trouser to shorten it or sew-in pieces of additional fabric to make it longer. Where your trouser should break is based entirely up to you, but you can always ask your Tasker for suggestions to make sure the length suits you!

Altering waistband

Whether your trouser keeps falling off of you, or it gives you some trouble breathing because it's too tight, your Tasker can fix that problem in no time! It can either be taken in or let out, depending on your needs. Of the two, it's always easier to take the trouser waist in as there's extra fabric to work on. When having this kind of alteration, feel free to let your Tasker know what feels comfortable for you.

Altering trouser leg width

If you want to go for a slimmer look, your Tasker can taper the trouser legs as well! Tapered trouser legs can give you a more professional and cleaner look, but it can also depend on the default trouser style and your body type. If you have a bigger upper body, a thinner-looking pair of legs won't look good either. Tapering suit trousers isn't also ideal since they need to look proportional.

If needed, you can get someone to alter your entire suit to make sure everything goes well. It's best to consult your Tasker if tapered trouser legs would look good on you, and how far can it go.

Altering zipper, hook and eye

These are more of a trouser repair than an alteration, but it's better to have these done than to buy a new pair of trousers entirely. Maybe you purchased a new one off-the-rack, but the zipper, hook, and eye didn't match your style, or maybe your favourite trousers need some repair. After all, these are prone to damage since they are moving parts. You certainly don't want to be caught with your fly open!

You can have your Tasker repair your zipper, hook, and eye, and let them know if you have preferred styles and designs. To lessen the damage, you can also get an expert to do your laundry so you can be sure your trousers are taken care of properly.
