Trouser Alterations

For trousers that are loose or tight on the waist we can quickly and effectively reduce or increase size by adjusting the centre back seam. After a fitting with our Master Tailor we can also determine the perfect shape of the seat and raise or let down the fork when necessary. For a closer fit and neater silhouette we taper (narrow) trousers either fully or partly. For a subtle taper we would remove excess fabric from the inside leg seam. For a more drastic change we can reduce the leg width by removing fabric from both the inside and outside leg seams. We shorten trousers by hand so that the stitching is invisible from the outside. We can replace belt loops with more traditional side adjusters by using excess fabric from the hem of the trouser.
