Hi Winston

I have a quick question: I have a navy blazer that I purchased some time ago. Its only now I think I should perhaps make it more a suitable jacket and so I would like to get it altered in terms of the waist and have the buttons replaced. How much would Graham Brown charge for this type of work?

謝謝您

Sirian,

A simple waist alteration should be about £15. Changing the buttons, depending on how many there are, should be no more than £10 - they can even make your cuff buttons 'working' buttons.

Thanks Winston

My blazer is a double breasted one and I hope to purchase the replacement buttons from Benson & Clegg at the close of this week. Interesting what you say about making the cuff buttons workable. I assume this would add to the cost?

Only moderately. I think they'd just charge for changing the buttons. £1 each I believe.

I have been able to make my own cuffs 'working' before. All off the peg jackets, though not of working cuff, usually have eyelets for the buttons underneath. You simply remove the buttons, snip out a little material from the eyelet (I also use a flame to 'finish' the edges of the eyelet), sew the button onto the material beneath the eyelets and that's your working cuff.
