ALTERATIONS

Show More

We offer the following alterations online – hemming and zip fly on trousers and velvet collars on covert coats.

HEMMING: The majority of our trousers come with an unfinished inside leg length (see sizing charts for more information). You can select your inside leg measurement whilst adding the trousers to your shopping bag, we will organise for your trousers to be hemmed for a competitive tailor’s fee. Once the trousers have been hemmed to your leg length, they become void of return or exchange if they do not fit. We strongly advise first time customers to try our trousers unhemmed before selecting a hemming option. You can return them back to us to be hemmed or tailored locally to yourself once you’re happy with the fit.

ZIP FLY: Most of our trousers also come with a traditional button fly, we can have our tailor replace them with a zip fly for a competitive fee. Please select this option whilst adding the trousers to your shopping bag. Once a pair of trousers has had a zip fly inserted, they are void of return. We strongly advise first time customers to try our trousers on before requesting the zip fly to be inserted. You can return them back to us and we can tailor them with a zip or have them altered locally once you’re happy with the fit.

VELVET COLLARS: You can have a velvet collar attached to our Covert Coats, there are an array of colours to choose from. Please select this option whilst adding the coat to your shopping bag and we will organise for our tailor to attach the collar for a small surcharge. During the alteration, part of the original collar is removed to replace with the velvet, because of this, any coat that has a velvet collar attached is void of return or exchange if it does not fit. If you are in any doubt, please order the coat as sold and either send it back to us for the velvet collar attachment, or we can send you a piece of velvet for it to be tailored locally to yourself.

PLEASE NOTE We cannot refund or exchange any item that has been altered, this does not affect your statutory rights. So, if you are in any doubt, please arrange for your alterations to be done locally. If alterations are requested, your order will take an additional 3 working days to arrive.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR INSIDE LEG

Show More

Hemming is a precise art. In order to work out your correct inside leg measurement, measure the inside leg of a pair of well-fitting trousers. Do not measure your body. Place on a flat surface and measure from the crotch (where the seams meet) to the bottom of the trouser, keeping the leg relaxed, not stretching it.
