With over 30 years of experience, we have become London’s leading experts in Jeans Alterations and Denim Alterations. Unfortunately, most Jeans and Denim garments stretch once they have been worn several times. Even if you were completely happy with the fit at the time of the purchase you might find that your favourite jeans have become too baggy and no longer fit you very well. Fortunately, our highly experienced, talented tailors and seamstresses can easily fix this. Whether you have bought a pair of classic light denim jeans or decided on a pair of heavier loom-state selvedge denim, we have the expertise to alter your jeans to perfection! We will understand your preference and help you find the perfect fit to match your body type. Our tailoring experts can carry out basic alterations like hem shortening or more complex alterations like changing the rise of your jeans, lowering the waistband, taking in or letting out the waist, or completely changing the cut of your jeans by turning your boot-cut pair of denims into a pair of fashionable skinny jeans. Rolling or cuffing your jeans looks a bit dated nowadays, and the proper contemporary fit demands a little bit of length that creates a small break, or, if you prefer, just grazes the top of your shoes. So if you are seeking the contemporary fit simply ask our tailor or seamstress to help you find the perfect length. If your jeans are too long but you don’t want to lose the original hem we are able to retain a pre-worn finish by cutting away the original hem and reinstating it at the required length. Whether we are simply shortening your jeans or tapering them (making more narrow) we will pay close attention that the original stitching and thread colour is matched perfectly. We can also replace lost jean buttons, rivets and repair tears or make general repairs. These are just some examples of jeans and denim alterations we can perform:
Lower Jeans waistband
Take in or let out Jeans waist and seat
Take in or let out Jeans waist, seat and fork
Shorten / lengthen Jeans with original hem
Take in / let out Jean seams
Replace Jeans zip

Alterations Boutique is a VAT registered Limited company with a comprehensive insurance policy that covers your garment whilst it is in our possession. Unfortunately, there are individuals that have set up rogue businesses that do not pay tax, take cash only and do not have the correct insurance in place which means you and your garment have no protection. We are proud to be a British company that complies with all rules and regulations to provide peace of mind to our clients.
All of our team are qualified Master Tailors by trade. Despite being already qualified, the team have to undergo a rigorous Alterations Boutique training programme to demonstrate they perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training to help the team master their skills.
