How Long Will it Take for My Suit to be Tailored?

How long will it take to tailor my suit? That's a question we hear frequently at The Tailored Fit. The answer varies, and today we'll explain why.

A simple suit alteration: simple alterations include (but are not limited to) hemming sleeves, or taking in the sides. We ask one week turnaround time for this work to be completed.

More complicated alterations include (but are not limited to) tailoring the shoulders, redoing the lining, or hemming the body of a suit. We generally ask for more time unless it's time sensitive, in which case we charge a rush fee.

Any suit alteration orders can be rushed, provided we can fit your timeframe into our schedule. (We usually can!) The rush fee is 50% of the cost of the alterations.

We are more than happy to work with you on getting your suit tailored in time for when you need to wear it. Please feel free to call ahead to get an estimate of our current turnaround time and potential alterations fees. Please also note that until we mark and pin the suit ON your body for alterations, we can't tell you an exact charge over the phone sight unseen. We are happy to give you a rough estimate for reference.
