Is There Really A Need to Buy New Clothes for Every Event?

It’s nice to treat yourself to new clothes every now and then if they give you a boost of confidence in your everyday dealings. However, if you do this because you’re envious that others have things you don’t have, or perhaps you believe you should have whatever you want,  this sense of entitlement can spiral out of control.

While buying a new dress for every single occasion is a matter of personal choice, it’s equally important to consider whether doing so is practical and sustainable. Especially for expensive pieces such as a couture gown or leather jacket, there’s no point in spending again if you already have one. Getting excellent and quick service from clothing alterations specialists is the way to go.

If you want your suit tailored by repair and alterations experts in New York, Couture Clean New York will always provide the best services in the area. We also handle special items like wedding dresses, evening gowns, graduation outfits, and more!  

What Makes Clothing Alterations and Repair Services A Good Investment

In a 2017 survey conducted in the US about the reasons people buy new clothes, the top two reasons are (1) because old pieces no longer fit; and (2) because old pieces are worn out. Imagine the volume of clothes that could have been used still if alterations and repair services had been available. 

And so, are such services really worth the investment? Indeed, they are, for the following reasons:

1. They are a cost-effective alternative.

If you are budget-conscious and prefer to save money whenever possible alterations and repairs are an affordable alternative to replacing entire garments. This appeals to a broad range of customers, including students, young professionals, and families on a tight budget. 

2. The demand for tailored clothing is on the rise.

Imagine seeing someone wear the same exact clothes you’re wearing for that day. Same color, same design, and same accessories – that’s how mass-produced clothing works. But with expert alterations, you can achieve the perfect fit you desire, and above all, express your individuality and stand out from the crowd.

3. They are sustainable and practical.

According to the UN, the fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of global emissions – more than aviation and shipping combined. You can have your clothes adjusted or repaired instead of discarding them just because they have minor flaws or no longer fit properly. This approach significantly cuts down on waste and new clothing expenditures.

When Should You Invest in Alterations and Repair Services?

Professional tailors know how to fit everything from suits to jacket sleeves exactly to your frame, not just fix small rips or slippery straps. Tailoring and alterations can completely transform your wardrobe and the way that you feel in your clothing.

But still, it is an added investment that you need to be willing to make. So it’s only prudent that you know the right circumstances that call for this kind of service. So here are three situations in which you should invest in alterations:

1.  New Clothes

It’s best to invest in alterations when you buy new clothing, especially when the garments are expensive and you intend to wear them for a long time. Aside from getting the ideal fit, alterations allow your clothing to evolve with you for years to come. In this way, you can still wear your pricey clothing if your body size changes.

2. Favorite Garments

We all have our own favorite clothes, like ones that are comfortable, made of a fabric we like, or manufactured by a brand we support. With alterations, you can continue wearing your favorite garments as long as you like since professional tailors can adjust the fit to your preferences over time.

3. Clothes for Special Occasions

Your clothes must should you feel confident on your most important days and alterations can help you with that. Whether it’s a wedding dress, a homecoming outfit, or a prom gown, alterations can make them fit you perfectly even after years have passed.
