  • When body measurements are submitted, our tailor adds allowances as room for movement. These allowances depend on the type of fit you have selected.

    FOR SHIRT:

    - Slim fit: we add 12 cm to the hip, waist and chest measurements you provided, in order to give you room to move about. Depending on your body type sleeve length, collar, and shirt length are tailored almost exactly to your measurements. While adjustments to the armhole and sleeve width/bicep are determined after comparing shoulder and chest measurements.

    - Normal fit: we add 15 cm to the hip, waist and chest measurements you provided, to achieve extra room while maintaining that unmistakable tailored look.

    FOR PANTS:
    - Please coordinate with sales@moderntailor.com if you like to add specific allowances on pants and specify your order #. Pants allowances depend on a customer's entered measurements, style of pants and the fabric chosen (cotton or wool). The assigned tailor will most usually decide the allowance.
