MyTailor and TaT comparison - Page 2

post #16 of 61
Not much else to add to what everyone else has said. Replace that obnoxious belt, and get some new shoes.

That's a question for Jason. I know he's on SF, perhaps he'll reply.

You took the newly made suits to a cleaner? Why'd you do that for?

Yes, I had my suits dry cleaned. I don't understand this objection. Who doesn't get their suits dry cleaned?

Maybe it would fit better if you knew which buttons to button. But I don't know. I think your venture into custom clothing didn't start off very well.

Also, shirts do not come in pairs. You purchased two shirts. You didn't buy a pair of shirts.

...are you trolling me? Yes, I buttoned both buttons on the MyTailor suit instead of leaving one undone. And yes, I bought a pair of shirts.

Both suits look a size too small -- jackets are too short and tight in the chest, mytailor lapels don't meet properly and vest is too short and tight. You could have done better with nice OTR suits and a bit of tailoring.

Try Steven Aver next time. Hopefully you'd get a much better result.

Why would you get brand new suits dry cleaned after just having received them?

I don't. Most of my suits and jackets have never been dry cleaned. Dry cleaning of tailored garments should only be a last resort. I sure the vast majority of members of this forum would concur.

Why on earth would you button the bottom button of a two button jacket (or a three-button, for that matter)? It's just not done. Never! I note that the button stance on both jackets seems unusually high. Did you specify that as a personal preference or what? If so, why?

I don't mean to be coming across as harsh on you--it just seems you've got a lot to learn, and I hope this forum can help you along.

This is because of this type of advice that the OP is now the owner of two mediocre "MTM" suits.

Suit critique threads are certainly for masochists. If you don't have a Brad Pitt physique and your suit doesn't fit perfectly on the first attempt, it's a complete failure. Great logic.

I'm no expert, but they look OK to me. They would probably look better if you placed your camera higher -- low camera angles always makes things look "off".

Possible changes to improve your look:
* The chest on the TaT might be a little tight, as it looks like there's a some pulling on the top button.
* Getting shirts with longer sleeves or shortening the jacket sleeves -- to show shirt cuff -- could improve the look.
* Gaudy belts are generally frowned upon here, a new clean belt would help.

Yes, I am trolling you. Sorry. But trolling you offends only one person. Butchering the English language offends us all.

Stop trolling him. He doesn't like it.

Because he bought from two places that, as far as I can tell from this forum, continually create fairly mediocre pieces. I've been uniformly unimpressed, particularly in recent weeks, with both MyTailor and TaT. Doesn't mean all MTM is as bad. You don't tar them all as bad because some are. That's just silly.

I actually think the TaT isn't too bad. Some of the measurements are just off like the waist and sleeves. The jacket could be a tad longer but it's TaT after all so maybe it's ok. You went with a conservative styling though, so in that case some people find the shorter length doesn't jive with the overall proportions.

The problem is you were off on the first suit to begin with, then asked Jason to make another suit off the initial mis-measurements.

In TaT's defense, the unimpressive ones are predominantly orders where the buyer clearly didn't understand the aesthetic and tried to stray too far from the intended product. If someone said they saw a bad TaT suit, I would guess that it was a solid gray or navy in conservative cut. Jason has emphasized many times that TaT isn't a tailoring shop or replica-making service.
