At Alton Lane, we're dedicated to acheieving the perfect fit. See our answers to the most frequently asked questions here.
Good question! Full transparency, we find the term at times confusing and often overused or misused. So we stear away from it altogether. In reality, there are specific differences between 'bespoke', 'custom' and 'MTM'. And we're happy to discuss those with you if that's of interest. But the best way to think about our product is as 'custom' in that we create every piece one at time just for you. We don't even cut the fabric until your order is placed. So every one of our custom pieces is a true 1 of 1. It's not rocket science but it's pretty close...

RETURNS, EXCHANGES, AND ALTERATIONS
If you are satisfied with your custom-made garment, but it needs a tweak here or there, we are happy to assist with alterations. In the event that you ordered through a showroom, please book a fitting at any showroom, and our stylists will personally assist in your alterations. If that is not a feasible option you can either take the garment to your favorite tailor or we can refer you to one.
Alterations are covered by Alton Lane for thirty (30) days upon receipt of the garment.
Our patterns are algorithmically based; we only perform key alterations to our garments. As a result, we will only cover the post-production alteration costs of this set list of alterations. Please refer to the list in the fine print. There are no exceptions to the alteration list, as we will not be able to replicate these alterations in future orders.
In select locations, we offer ready-to-wear suits and shirts. We only offer complimentary alterations to our trousers; waist and hem. Ready-to-wear jackets and shirts are sold as-is and are not subject to our alteration offerings.
In the case that alterations and/or a remake do not result in a garment that fits your individual style we will offer a refund. For further details or to begin the process, please contact our Customer Service Team.
Our standard delivery timeframe is 2 weeks. For events and occasions, please be sure to place your order 4-6 weeks in advance, as delivery timelines may fluctuate throughout the year. This will also allow time for alterations if needed.
Upon arrival, please inspect your garments carefully and report any damages to the Alton Lane Customer Experience Team within 30 days. While we offer only the finest fabrics in the world, to ensure the highest quality garments possible, we cannot be held liable for damages caused by personal wear. Additionally, we recommend that you purchase an extra pair of trousers for each suit purchase to increase longevity!
