ALTERATIONS & REFUNDS
Q: What if my suit or shirt does not fit?
A: Please refer to our Returns and Refunds Policy.

A: Your local tailor will list updated measurements on your Alterations Form. We will update your measurements upon receiving this email from you.
Q: Should I get a tailor to take my measurements?
A: This is not necessary. We provide an easy to follow measuring guide that if followed correctly will provide the correct measurements for your custom suit. It should only take 10 minutes to obtain your measurements and is best if a trusted friend assists you.

A: Yes. If you would like to use the existing measurements from a previous suit please contact our friendly team and we will provide you with instructions.
Q: I would like to change my original measurements submitted, is this possible?
A: Please contact us immediately to change any submitted measurements. If your garment is already in production we are unable to change your measurements. Please note that we assess all submitted measurements to ensure the perfect fit before creating your custom suit.
Q: I am a different body shape to the models in the photos. Will the suit still fit me?
A: Yes, our suits and shirts are tailored to your provided measurements.
Q: Do you provide suits for the larger gentlemen or children?
A: Yes, our suits and shirts are tailored to your provided measurements. However, some sizes may be deemed to large or too small to create. We will contact you if this is the case.
Q: How are my measurements used to create my custom suit?
A: The measurements that you submit using our self-assessment guide may not be the final measurements used to create your custom suit. Suit Society guarantees the perfect fit and to ensure we create the best fitting suit in your wardrobe we may adjust your measurements using our professional judgement.

Q: Where are the fabrics sourced?
A: A number of our fabrics are sourced from reputable European mills to ensure that they are of the highest quality and on trend.
