Fuuma's fit looks so good because the leather, shoes, and probably those jeans have obviously been worn well

Too many fits with crispy looking clothes

There dude with the ToJ and the CPs a couple pages back was technically alright but not nearly the swagger. Wear your clothes!!

Probably going to cop a lot of shit for this but seeing as you guys will give it to me straight - here goes. Cross post from the 'Post a question' thread.




I'm looking for feedback please. Anyone who has noticed my presence in the WAYWT thread will know i've been told a million times to tailor my shirts. So I recently set out to do this for 2 of my cheaper shirts initially which I intend on wearing un-tucked. Background for those that are not familiar. I generally buy L size shirts to accommodate my chest/shoulders but would ideally wear an M for length in both shirt body and sleeves. Other than J.Crew/Gitman where I can wear an M, all others don't allow me to move my arms comfortably. I'm about 5'8/9 and 80KG/175lbs.
This first shot is what I wore today as a comparison showing a shirt which has not been tailored. Same black Acne denim/Grenson shoes in all shots.

This shirt is from Industrie and I had the sleeves and shirt shortened. No darts. Shirt cuff was taken as far as it could to allow the upper wrist button to be done up. This is a semi-fitted / slim shirt to begin with so I am happy with this. Looks very BOO in shape.

This shirt is from APC and I had the sleeves and shirt shortened. WITH darts. Shirt cuff was fine so no issues there. Sleeves feel great. The issue is however that the shirt is a regular fit and therefore IMO looks a little silly shortened. Perhaps it can be salvaged by darting a little more aggressively or actually slimming the shirt down the sides. I should have bought an M and shortened the shirt a little less than this was done.

Overall I am not really happy with the results. I think the tailor I went to is fine to do cuffs of pants, but struggles with the shapes of shirt bottoms. A more experienced tailor would probably have realised that the base of the shirts will 'float' and flop about without being tapered a little at the base sides. 
The white Industrie is fine IMO, but the APC will need this I think to be saved. It can also be easily tucked still (I checked). I'm wondering if I should be taking my 'untucked' shirts up quite this much? Thoughts?
Appreciate that so many have said to shorten my shirts, but it looks like I'd need then to be quite slim to do this. Anything that is boxy/billowy or fuller in the chest/body needs a little more length to balance out. Not sure.

I think I just need to slim down a little and try get my ass into some more M shirts. Also, it's honestly a case of finding what suits / fits best. I can't expect everything I buy online to fit right off the bat. Gitman, Kitsune and a few others fit me quite well 'out of the box'. Other than in the sleeves which are easily fixed. Playing with the shirt length, taper and so on is troublesome. Lesson learned on these two. 2 tucking shirts now lol. Can probably get away with the white OCBD as an untucked shirt with a little darting but the APC is gone I think.


Now to find someone who has a little more experience with shortening shirts. I still have quite a few i'd like to get done - though not quite as short. Need the length it seems to stop me looking so square. However they still need to be short enough to not look too long/touch down to my crotch.

All of them look too big in the shoulder and too long in the sleeve. The torso length in the bottom two looks fine to me - and better than in #1 - but if #3 feels too short in the body, it probably is. Considering that they look too big everywhere, why not just buy a size smaller? Also, maybe it's time to try some different brands. Marc x Marc Jacobs comes to mind as a cheap alternative.

Warmed up to about 7 degrees so I'm swaggerjacking Fuuma, needs a longer knit though

Actually didn't wear these shoes out either, put on boots because there's still 150cm of snow on the ground

Baseball cap, rick leather, knit, black jeans and gats is pretty much my go to for a lazy weekend fit.

My hat is waayy dirtier than yours tho

Eli, if you can't tell how your shirts fit properly yourself, I don't know what to tell you. Learn to stop caring about how things fit and just be comfortable with what you have (wait I think that's yohji thread title).
post #88120 of 117677
elisix, find shirts that fit in the shoulder. Once you get this down, it seems like it'll pretty much fall into place for you. All those shirts look a bit big in the shoulder and thus are making the sleeves all weird and the drape strange, especially when they are tailored slimmer in the body.

You guys are crazy, that Prada fit looked really cool (though a slightly shorter cock-bip or whatever would be an improvement)! Fit + proportions don;t necessarily need to be flattering, just balanced.

And Synth is right about Nelson fits. Super basic, but stand out because nothing is skinny fit.

Elisix, I've had the same problem with some shirts not allowing me to move my arms freely. I realized that I needed shirts with a box or side pleats to solve that problem. I believe your JCrew and Gitman shirts might also have that and that's what makes it possible for you to buy them in M. So might be an idea to avoid shirts without pleats and go for those brands that offer that.
post #88123 of 117677
g trans is correct. all those shirts are too big in the shoulders and no amount of tailoring is going to fix that.
post #88124 of 117677
I have a feeling Elisix could make a killing if he posted his entire shirt collection on ebay (ELISIX'S GINGHAM SHIRT COLLECTION 100% AUTHENTIC NO RESERVE)

It's a piece of styleforum history. Worth thousands at least.

Am I the only person who thought PF's fit was fine? I mean, the shoes were not, but if you traded them with some rick sneakers I think it would look really cool - comfortable, like glam gym-wear. Sweater length is a bit off-putting (shorter straight hem over dick flap), but that could just be the photo.

besides the doma dress sticking out, i thought it was cool. but whatdoiknow.
nicelynice - cool fit. snow jumping pic wins the day.
