Lots of great responses guys. Ballmouse what you show in those picutures is exactly what I prefer...feels a little odd that I as a student in my younger years am an advocate for that ancient time style and dislike the apparently modern style that my agegroup must prefer these days.   Justaguy....well harder to not be self-conscious about it when you're posting pictures like that haha. I see your point though.   Modern styling + the trend of lower rise pants + some...
Yes I will do that. I was using a belt even to bring the pants up but was not doing much. I just wanted to ask...in a style sense, how much of a faux pas would it seem to you if you saw someone with this kind of issue (naval shirt showing)? Would it appear to ruin the outfit as much as I think it does or is it really not something of significant note?
Hmmm yes I guess maybe it's a look I'll have to grow accustomed to. Still don't really understand the appeal for it but clearly it's trending. I'll probably look for different cuts in the future but I guess I'll have to manage for now.    My suggestion for the button was that maybe the tailor removes the button, stitches the hole shut, and pokes a hole somewhere else to thread the button. In retrospect, the cost to tailor may end up being more than the jackets are really...
Thanks Despos,   So the notion of quarters is actually not as applicable to this issue as we think? Maybe there is some extra fabric in the jacket to lengthen it though like someone else mentioned...perhaps i can ask them to place the button elsewhere? As for me...like I said the shoulders and chest fit nicely, the length just doesn't. Your paper analogy makes sense, maybe it's the brand...but I've tried 3 now that are budget jackets for slim fit people (Mexx, Attitude,...
Thanks guys, will definitely try and see if they can lengthen the quarters and such.  I can't believe this is a trendy/normal thing for jackets of today. Looks terrible in my opinion. With the bottom button done it looks well in the sense of covers up the navel but it just isn't right to do the double button I feel. Also I'll check out the BB later, I can't justify buying a 4th jacket after failing 3 times...only so much money I can throw away. I'll try to work with what I...
Hey guys,   I must be doing something wrong because a) I'm a skinny 135 pound 5'7 university student, b) my torso is extremely short,   So how can it be that my 36r (in one brand) and 38r in my other brands of suits are not extending long enough in the naval area? This picture isn't me but it sort of has a little bit of what I have and I can draw focus to the area easily with the circle I added:       Okay so...for me, this target area is parted too far to the...
Hard to get a good fit and i cannot afford tailoring yet as a student. Should mention i have much slimmer fitting clothes in school  but at my parents house i keep my beaters since its only church (last place i want to be)
Do have low rise jeans but i feel kind of trashy/informal...i doubt i could wear low rise anything, especially jeans, in a professional setting or in a way that appeals to gentleman such as all you guys on this forum. Granted with low rise jeans ill be wearing an untucked shirt to give that 50-50 look....or 40/60 is the best i can manage without looking like i have a blouse on. And oh if only i could find pants that fit that slim! Thanks will watch that video...
Here you go, picture is up...threw this on quickly before attending my parents church. Resolution is pretty bad but you can see the dividing line...wonky long arms offset the torso as well...more noticeable than I thought. This picture didn't make me feel all that great looking at it afterwards but it's here nonetheless.
