Welcome To My Tailoring Back Ground Page - For Mens and Ladies Vintage Suit Repairs and Alterations, Professional Quick Service

My Tailoring Back Ground:

I trained as a bespoke tailor working with my father, James, at James Personal Tailor & Son in Manchester, since 1999. Over this time of precise training I have been carrying out vintage alterations along with making bespoke jackets, trousers and suits. Along with altering and repairing of all types of suits and clothing. Over this time i have found different techniques to the repair and alterations process fior vintage attire from circa 1940's-1960's era,  which has resulted in our unique alterations and repair service.

At our shop in Manchester city centre, I have offered the alteration, restoration and repairing service to all customers, where I have found a huge calling for precision tailoring work to vintage suits to give them a more tailored look.

I have a complete understanding of how people have a desire to wear the same clothing day after day and at some point your vintage suit you are wearing will one day wear out or become out of shape some what, this is where I step in and restore your vintage clothing.
