We can all save money and do our bit to protect the environment by making sensible choices about the clothes we wear and how we look after them.
Most Britons spend around £1,800 on average each year on new clothes. Sometimes we will buy a new outfit to replace an existing one that is already sitting in our wardrobe that is either damaged or doesn’t fit properly anymore.
It doesn’t make sense to buy a brand new duplicate outfit when we have a perfect one that, with a bit of inexpensive alteration or repair, can be perfectly wearable once again.
Clothing alterations, Maida Vale
Before deciding to spend a fortune on a new outfit, take some time to go through your wardrobe and pull out a garment that doesn’t fit you anymore. Bring that garment to our clothing alterations team in Maida Vale to find out how we can alter it to fit you.
We bet that the cost of altering your existing outfit will be a fraction of the cost of buying a new one! Plus, getting this garment back into circulation again will make it last longer and keep it out of the landfill.
With an average of 30 per cent of the clothes we own not being worn due to not fitting correctly or needing a minor repair, it makes sense for both our pocket and the environment to get those clothes back into rotation once again.

There is more to making the most of your wardrobe than repairing and altering your existing clothes. If you are looking to make smarter clothing choices by developing a capsule wardrobe of just a few key pieces that can be interchanged with each other, then our in-house tailoring team should become your new best friends!
Sustainable fashion has become somewhat of a buzzword in society today, and it is a good thing. The idea behind sustainable fashion is to have a smaller wardrobe made up of a few key pieces made from high-quality fabrics that are made to last.
While many people may see tailoring as an expensive way to build a wardrobe, because you will buy and wear less, and keep it for longer, it actually works out miles more cost-effective than to continue buying throw-away fashion.
