How much does it cost to resize a suit?

We’ve found the average alterations cost for a new men’s suit is around $75 to $100. Add to this the time wasted going back and forth to have it altered, and you’ll realise the off-the-rack suit you just bought isn’t feeling as good as when you first tried it on.

What do you do if your suit is too big?

The first (and most obvious) is to see a tailor. They can re-measure you and tighten up areas of the suit to better match your body. You can also buy a smaller belt if it’s still loose around the waist afterwards, but be warned, it can start to make your suit look sloppy if you have to tighten it too much.

Can a suit jacket be made slimmer?

A suit jacket’s length can be altered. However, it cannot be made longer – only shorter. It’s a risky alteration because the spacing of the pockets and button holes cannot be changed and if a jacket is shortened too much, you run the risk of compromising the balance of the garment.

Can a men’s suit be tailored to fit a woman?

A woman’s suit is usually more form fitting and the structure differs from a suit belonging to a man. It is possible to alter a man’s suit into a woman’s suit but you need to pay attention to sizing and overall fit of the garment.
