Altering a 3 button suit into a 2 button suit

Hi Antonio,

Love the video series. I’ve learned so much the last few days about dressing well. I just have a question about altering suit. After graduating University, I purchased a 3-button suit for job interviews. It was black (yes, I now know that a black suit was not the best choice in color). However, I now find that it is too long for my taste. Is it possible to bring the suit jacket to the tailor and have it shortened and altered into a 2-button suit? And if possible, do you have a ball park figure on how much it would cost? Thanks.

  1. A tailor might be able to make the alterations you described but it would be a major reconstruction of the jacket and would cost more than it would be worth. It would be a better investment to buy a new suit.
