If your suit is not fitting right, I would just take it back and have him fix it. Like others, I do think it is tight causing the pulling and that is probably an easy fix. As for length, I think part of the problem is the camera location. Nobody looks at your suit from such a low vantage point and that camera location will make it look short. I think once the jacket is let out, you will be much happier with the length. For full disclosure, I have 3 suits made by Raji...

If, and only if, you're dead certain you want to go...

Are you sure? When I went to law school, 80% of each class at UofT got a B or B+. 10%-15% got As and the rest got Cs. This helped their students get top jobs in NY and Toronto. By contrast, other law schools in Ontario were in the 65% range in...
Time to revisit the thread. There is a Groupon offering for these guys today. Thoughts from those who ordered?
I am so bad at precision tasks with my hands that I would not even be able to attempt this. Would I be wrong to presume that there is some "cheating" going on even for professionally made buttonholes? Speaking of buttonholes, what is the characteristic of a good buttonhole?

I personally think that the majority of people could benefit with a bit of pad rather than the opposite. Take ODOT, for example- he has a well-balanced figure but his natural-shouldered suits make him look very bottom-heavy and pear-shaped. When I recently posted a...
