How to: Make your older festive wear like new

How to: Make your older festive wear like new

After the last few years, there’s a good chance you haven’t taken your festive wear out of the closet in a while. If you’re planning on making up for lost celebrations this year, it’s important not to wait for the last moment to get yourself sorted. That doesn’t have to mean a new tux. When you opt for high quality made-to-measure like us, we want you to wear them for as long as possible. It makes your Atelier Munro wardrobe an even better investment. Here’s how to get the most out of older occasion wear and ensure you still look and feel amazing.

If you’re not sure your suit or tuxedo is still appropriate to wear, all you need to do is come by one of our stores with your festive wear. We’ll take a look at the current state of your outfit and offer advice, letting you know what your look needs to be ready for the upcoming holiday season.

First things first, we’ll check if your pieces still fit well. Over the years, our bodies tend to change – we might fill out in places, or lose muscle in others – it’s only natural. If your garments are no longer sitting quite right, we will do our best to adjust the garments to make them fit like a glove again.

Then: a quality check. We’ll look at the wear of your garments. Your suit or shirts may need a new button, a stitch, or something else. Your shoes may need a reheel or polish. Whatever it is, we can look at the possibilities on how to fix it and organize to send it to our favorite tailor or cobbler. Of course, if it’s not possible to bring your garment back to life, we’ll let you know and recommend some charities that will give them a second life.

Lastly, our style advisors will do what they do best: advise. They’ll listen to where you’re headed, check out what you have, and help you with whatever you like. Often it’s suggestions on styling or how to refresh your outfit so it feels like new. If you’re looking to make a statement, you can swap your classic tux jacket for festive velvet or a bolder hue. Maybe all you need to lift your look is a pair of our new plain toe loafers (also available in a fun range of velvets). Sometimes, all it takes is a new pair of cufflinks or a matching bowtie. Whatever it is, we can help you get there.

If you’re unable to visit one of our stores, don’t worry! Book an online session and we’ll do our best to help you out from home.
