Is this suit too big for me? - Page 2

post #16 of 31
Too big all around on the first set, the second set didn't show up? Sleeves too long and too ful across the chest. At least one size down, possibly two

looks very big for you. dont think its worth it to take it to the tailors. return or exchange it for a smaller size.

It's not the sizing, it's the cut.

The cut of the suit is meant to be as bland, inoffensive, conservative, and all-accommodating as possible.

-If you are getting this because you want it, then don't. It's obvious that you're unsure about your purchase and as of now, it'd be a waste of money.

-If you are getting this because you *need* it for some event, then well it's up to you. My feelings on how it looks should be clear, but no one else is going to care about the fit of your suit (despite what reading these forums suggest) so if you need it, and it doesn't offend you to wear it, then keep it.

If you want to keep looking around for something better fitting, then just keep lurking around and learning as much information as you can before you make your next purchase. Just a rule of thumb, if something "fits" you then it should be making you say "Wow hey I look good" when you look in the mirror, not "Hmm I don't know, I should take a picture and ask what people on the internet think".

Hello.

Thanks for replying. I've took the suit to the tailor a month ago and now I am happy with it

Wear it often so it has time to wear before you grow out of it.

You made the main mistake we all made when we all bought our first suit...

I was afraid of fitted suit because I was brought up to buy my clothes always a bit bigger in case I would have gained a few pounds...
During my teens, fitted clothing was a strange and alien concept.

All my older suits tend also to be boxier than the ones I bought these last few years thanks to SF.

Well done for exchnging the suit and getting more fitted suits..You look a lot better in the last picture.

A definite improvement, IMO.

Anyway, here is the same, but size down:



Having lightened the picture to see the fit, it actually looks quite good on you. With the fresh haircut(?) you look very smart.

I would however suggest that you only ever button the centre button on a 3-button, not all of them.

What make is it?

It might help you to get views on the trousers - if so suggest posting front AND rear views of you - without the coat to see how they fit and break.

The second phase of the suit looked best on you. This latest photo with your recent alterations looks great...today. What everyone forgot to observe was the fact that you are 17 years of age. So what will this suit look like on you a year from now? Don't be suprised if it no longer fits. As long as you don't gain 1 ounce of weight in the near future this will look fine. However, your body is still growing and if you get a second suit in the near future, I would reccommend leaving a little growing space and not getting the suit altered too slim. Considering your current age and available funds, it will be more prudent to think about the next 5 years or so in your body's growth, and make purchasing/alterations decisions accordingly. Shaving your head was a mistake. Let it grow back out. Having your hair back will give you far more styling options. Also maybe add a simple off-white linen pocket square and the suit will be perfect.
