If you're in a store trying on OTR RLPL and Canali and  they fit like that and you're postig pics in this thread, I'd consider a quality MTM suit. THe reason being these OTR suits are not built to your posture. THe other is do you see those diagonal drags/folds of cloth running from your neck down your sides? And the crushing fronts next to the buttoning point in the front? Those are symptoms of very sloped shoulders. The only fix for that is to either pack out the...
FYI.. Tailors are busy peeps Got questions you need answered by folks who uh kinda know what they're actually talking about? Like for real know? PM us. Sorry, but we can't prevent old anyone from posting old whatever they old want up in here.
Despite the horrible picture position (I've addressed this too many times to be nice about it), looks like front balance is too short.
If you have forward hips and bowed legs and flat seat and can't do and or afford bespoke, you need to find a very sure made to measure supplier, dealer, tailor, seller, whatever that knows what they're doing and can see your body well enough to ask for a proper adjustment. On the ground alterations (as opposed to before make pattern adj) to fix those issues are quite significant and if they are possible, also require the hand of a very skilled alterations tailor or a...
I am just marveling at how many alterations had to be done to this suit for a guy who "doesn't need many alterations". Unreal.
The jacket sleeves may be too forward for your arms. A sleeve pitch issue. Either that or there is too much fullness at the sleeve cap and the sleeve needs to be removed and recut to fix it. With the trousers, they look pretty good from the back. Based on your build, I would recommend braces/suspenders to pull the front up onto the stomach some. If the waistband is falling down, it disturbs the natural intended balance of the the trouser and creates a sloppy drape straight...
It's really hard to say...Anytime a person holds their arms like that wearing any upper body garment there will be torsion in the sleeves.To be anything close to accurate, we need to see pics of you standing like the very first post in this thread instructs. BUT My guess is that the sleeves may not have a pitch issue but are too slim for your arms.
Looks fine around the body. Jacket may be a bit long and sleeves look full.
ImTheGroom   First of all, congrats on thrifting all that great stuff!!   Most of the adjustments would be minor IF you weren't dealing with a rather erect posture and slight barrel chest. Because of this, the back balance on pretty much every garment pictured is too long and conversely the front balance is too short. Notice how the back falls down and seems to have excess drape? Also, all the single vent jackets split open because of this reason. The front of every...
To anyone following this thread:   Astor & Black "the name" was bought by an old A&B agent and will be selling those garments again. I'm sure he bought the name because a great big client list came with it. So, if you see A&B pop up in the #menswear sphere again, that's why.   Secondly, I have 6 suits that were never received by former clients that I am looking to part with. They all fall in the 40-42 size range. They were made for 2 different clients. 3 for one and 3...
