Tailors are merchants who offer garb from basic shirts and pantaloons to more elegant blouses, coats and boots. They can be found in towns on all of the main islands. They buy and sell clothes, including shirts, pants, vests, belts, hats, boots and coats. Some even offer quests for special attire.
Note - Basic Access players can only buy crude clothing.

Visit a Tailor


A tailor shop can be located by looking for their needle and thread signs over their door. On Port Royal, Tortuga and Padres Del Fuego the needle and thread symbol also appears on the new large island maps. To enter, approach the door and press Shift.

Once inside, walk to the tailor and press Shift again.

A menu of their wares will appear, organized by type (Vest, Shirt, etc.).

Simply scroll through the selections. By clicking on the image, you can Preview how your pirate will look in their new threads. By dragging the bar at the bottom, you can rotate your pirate for a full 360-degree view. Click Buy to add it to your shopping list on the right. A running total is also kept at the bottom. Simply click on the item in the list to drop it as well.

When your selections are complete, click OK to make your purchase. Whatever items your pirate was wearing at that time, they will be wearing when you leave the menu.


Sometimes a pirate needs a change. As of the Weapons of El Patron Update, you no longer need a tailor shop to change.

From the Sea Chest, click on the Inventory tab or press (I) and select Garb to see the clothes your pirate owns. You can put them on, take them off or sell them to most merchants (hopefully they wash them).

But, you can also sell your clothing while in the tailor shop. Simply go to the tailor, the select My Items and browse your clothing. You can then click on items to sell. A running tab will appear in the right, just like when purchasing.

Game Note

Pirates will always have a default outfit. Even if you sell of all your clothes, male pirates will still have a pair of pants and female pirates will still have at least a pair of pants and a blouse.

Also, should your account membership lapse, all clothes other than Crude or Default will not be available to use or even sell.
