Recently, I scored a brand new suit. As thrilled as I was, there was one big problem: the fit. The pants were too big around my waist and the hem was too short. The suit coat was also ill-fitting. The shoulder seams weren't sitting right and my knuckles disappeared under the sleeve length. Overall, I didn't look great.
Thankfully I had been recommended to visit Operations Manager Clare Sheng from The Fitting Room. But as you would expect, though this pricey new suit needed saving - I was a little hesitant at leaving my new threads with someone I didn't know.
Sweaty palmed and uncertain, I walked up the stairs on Edward Street to be welcomed by pleasant smiles.
I stepped into my suit and watched them takeover. From the get go I felt like I was in good hands. The team knew exactly what they were doing and had me in front of the mirror dressed in my suit. They made note of the necessary changes that were needed with pins and tape measures.
Slightly reluctant, the time came to depart ways so I handed over my suit to let them work their magic. A few days later I received a message from the The Fitting Room letting me know that everything was ready and I could swing by to pick it up.
I'm not going to lie, I was nervous. I was feeling hopeful that they had altered the length and fit right but there's always a sense of the unexpected.
On my next visit, I was welcomed by my name and given my suit to try on. I came out and stood in front of the mirror and was left speechless. It was amazing! They had done such an impressive job. There's no better feeling than wearing a suit that fits you perfectly. I didn't want to take it off!
The whole process was a great experience and the team from The Fitting Room are fantastic. Their warmth makes for a comfortable experience and their level of professionalism calls for a job well done. I couldn’t recommend a better place.
