Find Your Fit

Adaptive Tailoring

At King & Allen, we believe that bespoke tailoring should be accessible by everyone.

We strive to provide the very finest tailoring to those with physical disabilities such as wheelchair users and amputees.

We hear from our clients that have disabilities that they often have to sacrifice style for practicality, sometimes buying clothes in a larger size for greater freedom of movement. When it comes to suits for wheelchair users especially, the larger size can often look bulky and square.

A Suit that Fits

Our tailors are all trained in adaptive tailoring. This means that there are certain amendments that can be made to ensure the perfect fit.

For wheelchair users, we understand the suit will be worn in the seated position, so we don’t resolutely stick to the body measurements. This makes for a better overall fit. These adaptations might include:

  • Jackets are cut shorter, meaning that the hem sits perfectly on the lap, with no bunching or creasing.
  • Sleeves are cut longer as your arm is usually bent in a seated position.
  • Trousers are cut longer and often made with an elasticated waist, without pockets. This ensures that they aren’t too high up the leg and that the line looks neat and sleek.

Accessibility for Wheelchair Users


Our flagship store is our most accessible location.  It is a modern building with direct, step free access from the street. The pavement outside is wide enough to facilitate easy turning into the premises. The store also benefits from an accessible toilet and changing room.

There are some limitations in regards to the accessibility of this location.  There is a small threshold step followed by three internal steps leading up to the shop floor.  Additionally the pavement outside is very narrow thereby restricting access.  We do have a wheelchair ramp at the premises but the gradient is steeper than the 1:8 maximum slope recommendation. The threshold step and narrow pavement prevents the use of a longer ramp with a shallower gradient.
