My Background & Trade References

My Tailoring Background

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 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 found different techniques to the repair process, which has resulted in our unique near invisible repair service.

At our shop in Manchester city centre, I have offered the restoration and repairing service to all customers, where I have found a huge calling for precision tailoring work to ‘off the peg’ 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 suit you are wearing will one day wear out, this is where I step in and restore you clothing.
