I don't think the price point is the issue since one basted fitting costs $250, so he could have said that 'If it's within your budget, let's do another fitting.'

So he charges $250 dollars per fitting! Shureley shome mishtake?!? Should he not fit and refit until he gets it to your satisfaction?

I agree. It's not bad, but it's nothing spectacular.The suit jacket looks like it was cut too big.

The photos were taken at a slight downward angle (i.e. from an elevated position). I'm 190cm.

Well I guess the issue was that he wanted to save me some money by not doing another fitting.

According to the tailor, the fact that the shoulders do not sit as they should causes the uncleanness of the sleeves. Any comments on the armhole size?

I knew that!

The armholes are fine. They can be a touch higher but that would cost you much more.

Thank you all for the input so far!

Actually, my tailor contacted me today, and wrote that he would like to make the chest and waist smaller if I have no oppositions after test driving the suit for a few days. He supposedly left the chest area a little roomier because I complained about tightness in the chest of my Indochino suit (which is really on the tight side).

He also wrote that he reconsidered the shoulders, and would like to try some careful alternations.

In my opinion, this is really positive. I will drop off the suit in the weekend and report back when it's ready.

I think the shoulders and chest look fine, but the waist and skirt need to come in.

As far as quarters, I think tht is a personal preference. Some like open, some don't.
