Tailoring: Going Way Beyond Suits

July 1, 2016


Are you ready for a bit of very unsurprising news? Because we have some for you. We are really into tailoring (which is why it is one (https://jeevesny NULL.com/services/repairs-and-alterations/) of the many services that we offer (https://jeevesny NULL.com/services/)).

While we have mentioned how vital tailoring is many, many times, we never tire of spewing our spiel about the merits of a well-fitted outfit and how a few nips and tucks can transform an okay outfit into an outstanding one.

While the un-fabric-informed tend to think that tailoring is applicable only to tuxedos and suits, the truth is that there are many other types of items that deserve a good tailoring session. Here are three totally tailor-able clothing items that you have probably been neglecting. 

1. Coats

This may not seem like the best time to drudge up this subject, but summertime is actually the ideal season to have your coats go under the needle, since, you know, you won’t be needing them anytime soon.

Tailoring coats can mean adjusting an overly-long hemline so that it hits you at a more flattering spot or it can mean shortening outrageously large sleeves. Or something else entirely. Just ask your tailor.

2. Sheer Dresses

Sheer dresses may be having their heyday with starlets and celebrities, but here in the real world, donning a see-through gown will earn you quite a few raised eyebrows.

Fear not though, because you can often take these into a tailor to have them fitted with lining, rendering them much more appropriate for everyday wear.

3. Button Down Blouses & Shirts

Button down blouses and shirts are great for work and for play. But many of them possess the dreaded “front button” gap, which is not a good look in the office or out on the town. The good news is that there is a solution; tailoring. Duh.
