Have You Ever Replaced a Suit Lining?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I believe that's the purpose of the lining, so that when it wears out before the suit, you can change it out? Has anyone ever had this done? How many times did you have to wear the suit to wear-out the lining?

It depends on what the lining is made out of, the fineness and such. Even with the cheapest materials it takes a really long time. I am actually getting this done on a jacket right now, not because it is wearing out, but because I was sick of seeing the color.

Never wore out lining..but a good tailor can do it. I had the lining of an ex gf's coat replaced for her with some nice red silk material....it takes some time...

I got the lining of my linen jackets extracted. I left just the shoulders on them.

I´ve seen jackard paisley silk lining from Zegna mtm which I´d love to replace in some of my jackets.

As an update, I just picked up my jacket from the tailor with this done. It is pretty flawless and done in one week exactly.

Yes you can replace linings. It is labour-intensive, and so is not cheap. But can be done, and so can be worth it, depending on the condition of the jacket.

Can you provide a "ballpark" figure of how much it would cost? I wouldn't mind changing the lining of some of my jackets just to add something new to them. Thanks.

I just got my jacket done and provided my own lining, it cost me $115 in NYC. That price was pretty much the same everywhere I checked in the City who actually would do it.

Quick question: is it a good idea to have your suit lining replaced by a different tailor than the tailor that made the suit for you? Taking the question one step further, is it a good idea to have the suit lining of your bespoke suit replaced by another tailor?

It's best to just not have this bespoke suit made in the first place, saving the first tailor the embarassment, the second tailor the time and you the cost & hassle for the whole lot.
