Roadcrafter Alterations

Please call at 800.222.1994 or 218.722.1927 to place an order for a new suit with alterations. For a precise, comfortable fit, suits are available in many stock colors and 61 standard "off the rack" sizes (Men's 34 to 54 and Women's 2 to 20, most in short, regular, and long lengths) . Custom size alterations and most optional features must be added at the time of manufacture. Custom-altered suits are not returnable for refund or exchange. Select additional alterations or adjustments may be available at the purchaser's expense. Some alterations are not available in combination. (i.e. mid gusset and v-gussets, together.)
