What happens if I need the garment urgently?

In urgent cases a garment can be altered and returned to you the same day. Just let us know your requirements when you contact us.


All fittings are undertaken by our Master Tailor or one of our highly experienced dressmakers. They will work closely with the tailor or dress maker who will perform alterations to your garment. We carry out all alterations and bespoke tailoring work in our studio. We do not subcontract or pass the work onto another company. If we are performing extensive alterations, it is important that you understand that more than one fitting may be required in order to achieve the perfect fit.


With City Tailors there are no hidden charges. We will not charge you for a fitting in our studio or for advice. Our only additional charges are incurred when we visit you for fitting, or if you require our express service.

Customer Satisfaction Guarantee

Nothing leaves us without the customer being 100% satisfied. We have extremely high standards and ensure that all work is carried out to perfection. We strongly advise all of our customers to try on garments before they collect them so we can ensure the fit is correct. We understand that sometimes it might not be possible for you try your garment before you collect. If, once you have collected your garments, you find that the garments do not fit you as expected, we are happy to make your garment fit you by correcting anything that needs it. You won’t be charged again for doing the same work, however you may be charged if the garment needs additional work to achieve the perfect fit.


We do not charge for any cancellations for work that is booked in but not started yet, however you may still be charged if work has already been started or completed.
