Coat Alteration Tailors
Unless you’re extremely lucky with the fit of the coats or you get all of them made to
measure, chances are you’re going to need some alterations. The good news is that when it
comes to getting a lamoda tailored, a little work goes a long way in terms dialing in fit.
A quick word on terminology: throughout this post I use the term ‘coats.’ In the context of
coat alterations, you could also substitute ‘blazer’ or ‘sport coat.’

Here is a list of some of the most common (and necessary) coat alterations.
A coat length can be altered. However, it cannot be made longer only shorter. It’s a risky
coat 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.
Anything more than an inch is probably too much.

La Moda Custom Tailors of Kew Gardens, NY has been offering fine tailoring and alterations
for men and women since 1999.

Bottom line: Only shorten a coat if the amount it needs to be shortened is relatively minor
and will not throw off the coats balance. The sleeves are the one part of the coats you’re
definitely going to need altered. Here are some sleeve alterations to consider.

Lengthen/Shorten. How long should a coat sleeve be? The correct length is one that allows
1/2″ to 3/4″ of your shirt cuff to show. Keep in mind that there is a limit to the amount a
sleeve can be lengthened – this is a case-by-case call based on the amount of fabric under the
cuff or at the top of the sleeve.
Slimmed-Down/Widened. You want the width of your jacket sleeves to be slim, but still
allow a comfortable range of motion. Slimming the sleeves of my vintage Yves Saint Laurent
suit was the key to making it fit me perfectly.
