Who we are

We are a second generation family business, specialised in the alterations, restyling and reshaping of men’s suiting. Our dedication to providing high levels of service and quality finishes, has allowed our business to grow into the largest alterations service in Queensland. Recently, we won the 2017 Australian Small Business Champion Awards, and our director also won the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Young Business Person of the Year Award, presented at City Hall, by the Lord Mayor Graham Quirk.

Previously known as Brisbane City Clothing Alterations for 30 years, in 2016, we decided to update our name to The Fitting Room on Edward. Our team, quality, prices and passion all remain the same. Our new look and name will help us grow with our customers’ requirements, and align with our image as a modern, energetic, personal styling and tailoring service.

Dozens of major suiting retailers choose The Fitting Room (Brisbane City Clothing Alterations) as their partner tailor for clothing alterations and repair, including Ermenegildo Zegna, Hugo Boss, Rhodes & Beckett, Mitchell Ogilvie, The Cloakroom and many more.
