More Information About Our Waistcoat Alterations

The tailors and seamstresses here at La Sartoria tailoring are proud to provide top quality waistcoat alterations. Our tailors will be able to take in either at both sides or at the back seam, lift up shoulders or replace the back panel of the garment altogether. We also do any other alterations you need on your waistcoat, whether that is to the length, fit or whatever is needed to make your garment fit as well as possible and ensure that you are looking your best.

We understand that an ill-fitting waistcoat can feel rather disheartening, whether it’s a little too snug or needs taking in slightly. After all, the waistcoat is the slimmest garment in menswear and should have a close fit, however, it is important that when you wear a suit, your waistcoat has the desired look.

The Length

The length is also an important aspect of a waistcoat, as it should fully cover the waistband of your suit trousers and not show your shirt in between. Therefore, your trousers should also fit on your natural waist and sit comfortably. If you feel as though your waistcoat length needs alteration, even if it is an inch or so, our team will be more than happy to help.

The Neck Hole

Typically forgotten, yet just as important is the neck hole of your waistcoat. It will determine how the fabric and therefore the rest of the garment will fit over your body. Therefore, it should fit nicely around the back of your shirt collar, without any gaping. To identify if your waistcoat is too large, it will gape around the collar and allow the waistcoat to shift around instead of sitting comfortably in place.

The Back Panel

Finally, we can also replace the back and lining of your waistcoat.

The Cost of Our Waistcoat Alterations

The final price of our waistcoat alterations will depend on the work you require and the work required on your garments. As each project will always be so bespoke, we’ll suggest that you book in for a consultation appointment and visit our shop in person. Here you’ll be able to chat with a tailor and properly discuss what you would like done.
