My Tailoring Back Ground


I have been trained as a bespoke tailor working with my father James at James Personal Tailor & Son in Manchester, since 1999. Over this time of precise training i have been carrying out alterations along with making bespoke jackets, trousers and suits. Along with altering and repairing all types of suits and clothing, i have found a real passion for denim.
Taking extra time around repairing and restoring my own favorite denim jeans and also doing patch work on new denim i have purchased.

In our shop in Manchester city centre, i have offered the restoration and repairing service to all customers, where i have found a huge calling for precision tailoring work to denim clothing, such as replacing the original finish on the bottom of jeans.

I have a complete understanding of how people have a desire to wear the same denim day after day and at some point your denim you are wearing will one day wear out, this is where i can step in and restore and re work your denim into a usable pair of jeans that will stand up to even more wear and tear for a fair few years to come.
