The centre back seam can be adjusted to reduce or increase the size of trousers that are loose or tight on the waist, respectively. After a fitting with our Master Tailor, we can also determine the exact shape of the seat and raise or lower the fork when necessary. We taper trousers (narrow) either fully or partly for a better fit and neater silhouette. For a subtle taper, we would remove excess fabric from the inside leg seams. In order to reduce the leg width more drastically, we can remove fabric from both the inside and outside leg seams. We shorten trousers by hand so that the stitching is invisible from the outside. Belt loops can be replaced by side adjusters with excess fabric from the trouser hem.
