Process of Order (Suits & other clothing)
For suits ordered using the online service, the process will follow that of Process of Order (Shirts). Process of Order for the visiting suit tailoring service will involve an appointment to discuss the suit design, fabric and extras and this will then be followed with the clients measurements being taken by the visiting tailor. On agreement of design and fabric choice the client will be given 24 hours to contact Barrington Ayre with any changes or cancellation of order. The order will then be processed and sent for manufacturing. This now consists an order and a deposit will be asked for. After manufacture another appointment will be made where any alterations will be arranged (please see alterations terms and conditions below). Once all alterations are complete the balance of the order will be paid.
Barrington Ayre will complete all reasonable alterations to provide a well fitted garment, but hold the right to refuse alterations if they consider the garment to fit appropriately.
If a customer has changed shape or weight, where the original measurements taken have changed, that results in extra charges for any finishing, these costs will be passed on to the customer.
If a customer cancels an order before any alterations needed are carried out Barrington Ayre Shirtmaker & Tailor will not refund any monies taken.
It is down to the discretion of the tailor dealing with the customer as to refund any money if the order is cancelled before all alterations are completed.

Customers providing their own measurements through the Barrington Ayre website will be entirely liable for all alteration costs.

Barrington Ayre cannot be held responsible for matters out side of our control, e.g. out of stock fabric, late delivery of fabric, if delivery is made outside of these timings. Time is not the essence of any order.

The measurements taken by a Barrington Ayre tailor must not be changed without confirmation from Barrington Ayre, otherwise the Customer will be liable for any associated alteration costs.
