Where can I wear Advani?
Advani London Bombay is designed to be worn anywhere and from day to evening. Typically however, clients wear us for smart occasions or evenings out. This could be a wedding, a birthday, or a nice dinner.
What is the fit like?
The fit of our jackets range from slim to standard. However, they are designed for all body types and do not require you to be skinny! If you are broad on the shoulders or chest take a size up. The best way to check your size is via our size chart, which helps you compare our jacket to one you already own and like.
What services do you offer?
Our pieces come either ready to wear as seen in the pictures, or can be customised in their fit or fabric choice. The ready to wear options are the most popular pieces in our collection and can be purchased through our website. For a customised piece, we would be happy to co-create this with you over a virtual meeting. Book an appointment here.
Is it customisable or ready to wear?
We currently offer both options. Ready to wear pieces are already sized and you can purchase one directly off the website in your size. The custom options allow you to create a piece with a different fit or fabric. This can be done via our virtual appointment service. Book an appointment here.
How long does it take to make?
We currently offer a four to six week making time frame for new orders - depending on the product selected.
Why do you only make to order?
Making to order has a number of advantages. It allows easy customisation so you can have more fabric and fit options. It allows a business like ours to grow sustainably without compromising on our quality. And most importantly, since it discourages the cycle of overproduction, markdowns and wasted products, it is much more sustainable.
Are your pieces sustainable? How so?
Each Advani piece is an heirloom and is designed to be passed down to future generations. We use the most sustainable fabrics we can find on the market, such as Loro Piana and Vitale Barberis wool. We make to order to limit overproduction. We do not introduce new product for the sake of it, to minimise overall waste.
How can I buy a tailored product online? Will it fit me?
We are known best for our fit which is particularly exceptional. We have customers from over 20 countries and a wide range of body types, from very petite to big and tall. Our pieces are designed to fit each of those and accentuate their strengths. Purchasing online means trying it in the comfort of your own home. If you are unsure of whether it works, book an appointment and we will be happy to assist.
How do I know the style will suit me?
If you enjoy classic tailoring and are looking for something slightly different, you've come to the right place. Although our styles are innovative, they are designed for everyone and our client base reflects that. We cater to a broad, international audience that comes from very diverse careers and backgrounds.
I would love to purchase one of your pieces but I'm concerned I have never tried it on.
Delivery and returns above £500 are free so you can try one on in the comfort of your own home. We can assist you in your quest for the perfect Advani piece, simply book an appointment with us and we can guide you through the selection process.
What should I do if it doesn't fit?
Each of our products contains special allowances for easy alterations that can be completed with a local tailor. Contact us for a recommended local tailor in your area. If you do not wish to make them or feel it would be challenging to alter the piece to your needs, returns on ready to wear products are free. We do not accept returns on customised products.
Do I need to pay taxes on arrival?
If you are based outside of the UK, the prices you will see on our website are net of 20% VAT that would be otherwise be payable on a UK purchase. You may however be required to pay customs duties in your country upon delivery. These will be payable by yourself and customs in your country will get in touch regarding any amount owed.
What if I’m not sure what to wear it with?
We offer a styling service to show you how to style your favourite pieces in a way that suits your personal style and form. Book an appointment today via zoom or in our Maddox Street store to have your personal styling experience.
