If you’re looking to up your suit game at work, shopping for an event, or dressing your groomsmen for a wedding, you have never had more choice when shopping for the perfect tailored suit in Sydney.
It’s easy to get lost in an individual brands story or in the narrative of the best suit fabrics and construction. But it’s important to remember that the fit of the suit is the key to making you look your best.
Get a suit tailored in Sydney
There are plenty of great Sydney based tailors listed below, but I thought I’d start by suggesting the simplest option; buying off the rack from a great suit shop like MJ Bale, Henry Bucks or even online from The Iconic. The key here is to take your suit to your local tailor to get the suit altered to fit your body.
The alterations shop at your local Westfield or train station will definitely get the job done. But a few recommendations for the best suit alterations shops in Sydney CBD;
- Looksmart Alterations -The Dymocks Building & Myer – (Plus suburban locations)
- Queens Clothing Alterations – Queen Victoria Building
- Allen Tailoring & Alterations – The Strand
If you’re in a pinch I’d focus on spending your time (and money) with getting the fit of one of your existing suits right. $200 spent on alterations with a good tailor will make a huge difference in the appearance of a suit.
