How are your suits packaged and shipped?

Please note that due to the value of our packages, a signature is required upon delivery.

I’m big & tall, do you have a maximum size you can fit?

Absolutely not.  We can fit all shapes and sizes.

Can I gift AoS to a friend?

Of course. See AOS gift cards here!

Can women order?

Absolutely! We make traditional menswear, but we can make it for any body type and fit preference. Please describe your body as accurately as possible when you create your AoS account. We may also email you for additional body measurements, and general fit preferences, before we start cutting your custom try-on garment.

Do you offer personal styling advice (for clothes that are not AOS)?

In fact we do. Our head stylist Westley Dimagiba helps many of our clients with their entire wardrobe - jeans, boots, knitwear - all that. He has expanded his styling business beyond AOS and is available for a Zoom/Phone appointment to talk about your style and wardrobe - whatever that looks like for you. Contact us for details. 

Alterations and Returns

What if my final garment needs alterations?

Since every AOS garment is handmade, it’s possible that your final garment(s) may require some minor alterations upon delivery. This is not unusual, and is the reason why every tailor in the business requires a “final fitting”; to make sure everything is just right.

When your final garment arrives, please login to your AOS account and upload a final fitting. This will allow our tailos to review the final fit and suggest alterations to have done with your local alterations shop.

Once you’ve completed the alterations, simply email us a photo of the receipt from your local alterations shop, and we will reimburse you for the cost of the alterations (as a partial refund to your original purchase). We will also update your pattern with these final adjustments, so your next order(s) will arrive spot-on. 

Please note: we only reimburse alterations within 60 days of the garment being delivered, and only after a final fitting has been uploaded. 

What if I gain weight or change body shape?

AOS garments are crafted with additional seam allowance to accommodate body changes. At any time, you can login to your AOS account and upload a new fitting for any of your AOS garments. Our tailors will review the fit (now that you've changed a bit) and advise you on how to best alter the garment with your local tailor. At this time we will also update your pattern on file with those changes, so your future orders are updated. 

What is your return policy?

When you shop with Articles of Style, you are commissioning some of the most skilled artisans in America to hand-make a custom product just for you. Due to the nature of this process and product, we do not offer returns or exchanges.

We cover any alterations needed, with no limit. And we remake garments when absolutely necessary. We take great pride in satisfying our customers and our entire brand relies on your repeat business. 

Over the past five years we've delivered tens of thousands of custom garments all over the world with less than <1% requiring remakes.

The secret is the basted try-on garment, and the team of experts who personally review your fitting photos and read your feedback.
