Outdoor Clothing and Gear Alterations

With our experienced team of seamstresses, as well as carrying out top quality repairs to your outdoor clothing and equipment, we also offer a comprehensive alterations service for performance clothing and outdoor equipment across a variety of sports and pursuits.

Examples of alterations we regularly carry out include -

  • Tents - the addition of snow valancing or the introduction of additional midge/bug mesh.
  • Rucsacs and bags - the introduction of additional pockets or the adjustment of straps and harnesses.
  • Jackets - sleeve lengths can be increased or decreased.
  • Trousers - leg lengths can be increased or decreased

Increases in garment sizes can be carried out subject to availability of suitable fabrics. In the majority of cases this shouldn't be a problem.

In addition to garment increases and decreases we are able to introduce new features. For example, we can 'fit' reinforced kick plates to ski trousers and salopettes to improve durability on the slopes.

We work very closely with brands in the mountaineering, ski and snowboard and golfing industries to provide this service. Our specialist services extend to high profile brands such as Galvin Green and Spyder, however, we are able to alter garments from almost any brand.

There are some clothing alterations, such as chest and waist size changes, which we do not routinely undertake. Due to the time involved these are often not economic or would require a 'couture' bespoke tailoring and measurement service which we decline to offer.

As each alteration is unique we prefer to provide you with a specific quotation for the work involved. In the first instance please call us on 0131-564 1000 or use our contact form for more information on how we can assist.
