Size Guide

Made to Measure:

Made to Measure items means you must be able to come to see us on at least two separate occasions. Once for the initial measurement, where you will be measured by one of our professional Tailors and then to come back for a fitting half way through to make sure everything is on track and to make sure the item fits perfectly for you.

 

Self Measurement:
We no longer offer a Self-Measurement service due to the increased amounts of wrong measurements being provided which causes the items to be un-wearable by the customer. Therefore items will only be made to measure or made to a stock sized item, (Please see below for our stock sizes) If you are unsure if an item will fit you, we would be happy to send a sizing jacket out for you to try on. The cost for this is just the £20 P&P for the item to be sent to you and collected again. (UK Only) 
If you are unsure please feel free to ring 0161 793 6340 or email info@alexander-james.co.uk and we would be happy to help.
