There are both new ideas in fashion and there are old ideas that keep coming back. In both cases we can find that popular clothing can be altered to suit changing fashions, or to accommodate personal preference. Else, we might just need to accommodate our own physical changes as we age.

Alterations Sydney
-The most common alteration are:

-Pant leg hemming

-Pants waist adjustment

-Shirt and jacket sleeve hemming

-Skirts hemming

-Blazers/jackets – adjust shoulders.

-Skirts waist adjustment

-Dress darts

-Blazers darts and seams

-Trousers leg width

-Adding/removing dress sleaves

-Adding/removing belt loops

If you have hand-me-downs clothes that have been stored for a while you might well find that there are a few good items that are worth wearing, perhaps with a few alterations.
If the items suffer a little odour after being stored you might try: washing them with borax; storing them with baking soda; leaving them inside out in the Sun for a few days.

It is said that men are from Mars  while Women are from Venus, that can be seen no clearer that in the clothes they wear. Throughout the ages, women have sought out the latest in fashion trends, colour, patterns, prints. Men on the other hand, seek something far different. They look for clothing with style and taste; clothing that show elegance and sophistication. Nothing exemplifies this more than the humble suit. A well made suit adds to your confidence, whether it’s in the workplace or on that first date, it is always reassuring to know that you look as smart as you possibly can.

However, when you buy a brand-name suit from on of those big name companies: Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss. How ever renowned the brand is, how ever much you paid for it, it’s not going to give you the same sense of confidence as a made-to-measure suit. That’s because those suits are production clothing. They came out of a production line with thousands just like it. No matter how good you look in one, there will be someone (if not a few thousand others) that look just as good as you. This is not the case with made-to-measure suits.

A professionally tailored made-to-measure suit will not only fit you like a second skin, but it will also reflect your personality and your life. During the process of ordering a made-to-measure suit, you will initiate a relationship with your tailor.  Your tailor will provide you with advice on fabrics and styles depending on your lifestyle and profession. You tailor has to observe and document the your body shape, measurements and special needs. The end result? You will be provided with a suit that is made by you and solely for you. A suit you can proudly wear to achieve you goals in life.

I’ll update an article on the process of getting a made-to-measure suit done soon. So look out for that. ^_^
