This is me wearing La Spalla 40R jacket. I asked SA to take picture of my back because that's where I have most problem with OTR suits. From the front this jacket fitted me really well, but from the back, it did not look very good especially the circled area. SA suggested lowering the collar, but I did not think that would solve the problem as the issue was due to tightness not extra material. I don't want to get 42R because then both jacket and pants will be too big. ...
It could be just the way you stand for the picture pose, but from the front, it looks like you have lower left shoulder creating uneven look; more ripple around left chest than right. Like others said, I think you should shorten the sleeves and lengthen the pants. Also, lower back of the jacket appears to be too tight. If there is extra cloth, may you can ask your tailor to let out seams.
Thanks for the warning. 44 would be very big for me. Although the jacket showed no seam pulling; under arms, shoulders, waist line, and center, but I have not tried the pants. My thighs aren't that big but I would hate to see pant seams get pulled all different directions when I sit or move around. I may go back to store this weekend try the suit again.
I visited a local store and tried on suit jackets; Havana (40R) and La Spalla (40R and 42R) model. Just give some size reference, I am 5.10" tall, have 43 chest, 34 waist 35 hip (all tape measurements on skin). I typically wear 42R suits and SC. Both Havana and La Spalla 40R jackets fitted me really snug. I felt Havana fitted little tighter than La Spalla. La Spalla jacket had fully canvassed and little to no padding. I was extremely surprised by how well the jacket...
From the store perspective, they will try this and that to justify you should keep your ruined jacket. In reality though, that jacket will unlikely to fit as it was made. Those shoulders look too tight and sleeve heads do not shape like the original TF suit. If you paid for full price, you should demand for brand new jacket.
Quick question gents. I am thinking about getting these navy shoes from AE:
I plan to wear these with casual trousers, like olive chinos, light washed skinner blue jeans, raw denim skinny jeans (nudie).. What do you think, will they work well?
