How do these vintage pieces look?

 

 

people below a certain age threshold should not be wearing three piece suits. in my opinion.

in addition try to match the lapel width your tie width.

 

@CDHagg, your suit looks fine. how many fittings did you have by your tailor? those sleeves and the yoke (you said you need the extra room when singing) look like something indochino MTM would have produced but maybe the fabric justifies the 2k.

 

In my opinion it is not that wise to go bespoke at such a young age, since your body will change. I think you would have gotten more for your money if you went with RLBL and took it to an alterationist.

These are my subjective opinions, so don't take them too much to heart: I think, if you changed the tie to, say, a brown wool or knit tie, ditched the glasses (sorry, this is racist, but Asians tend, to always wear glasses in that style) for something more stylish (and something that will make you look older), say, some round tortoise shell glasses (if they suit your face shape/skin tone, of course), and styled your hair in more of a business cut, you'd look a lot better. I think the suit fits you well enough, from what I can see (maybe, a little baggy in places). It would be nice, if you could repost some fit pics, with your arms by your sides, and including your legs. What shoes are you wearing, also?

I think it's absolutely ridiculous, to suggest someone is too young, to wear a certain style of clothing. It's just harder to make mistakes, is all. If done right, people would envy your personal flair, which is what it's all about, right (mega irony, there)?

OK, the length of the sleeve(s) looks OK, but the length of the suit is a tad long--but is passable. You have really skinny legs, from what it seems, and I think the trousers are a bit baggy (I know, this might get you a bit peeved, as you're new to this, but it's just my opinion) and are too long (by an inch or so--nitpicky, I know). I don't like the shoes (from what I can see); I think black brogues would suit this look better. I've just noticed now, that something weird is going on with your shirt collar--it's not lying flat--so try to remedy that. I know it's a lot to take in, but if you get your proportions right now, you'll know for the future, and can work more on your individual preferences. smile.gif

All in all, if I were you, I'd ditch the vest, and wear it only on the odd day, buy some better ties (wool/knit/silk) in a variety of colours (navy/brown/green/etc.), and buy some black brogues--you can find many suggestions, by searching SF.

I think the main issue is that hagg presented it as an example of successful bespoke (as a counterpoint to RTW), also mentioning that it took 7 or 8 fittings to get there. Of course, people reacted accordingly, including myself. I have nothing against Hagg (although he seems to think so) but relatively speaking, as a bespoke with 7 fittings, it looks like a failed result to me. I expressed my view there and no need to repeat myself but in a nutshell, I feel that beyond some small fit issues (which are not why I don't like it but are also not acceptable after 7 fittings), the styling of the suit doesn't look good to me, is incoherent between the various elements and creates an overall shape that is odd and not what I'd expect from a bespoke tailor with a good eye. So, yes it fits relatively well but it looks pretty bad.

Do you guys who approve of it think that this looks like a *good* example for bespoke suit post 7-8 fittings? Answer honestly please. I would say. That most examples of bespoke with 1-2 fittings that I see posted here in a comparable price range look *better*

Now I understand that this may not be entirely the tailor's fault as it appears that hagg requested many of these styling elements - so I wouldn't judge the tailor purely on the basis of this suit.

Sleeves are too long, SC length is too short, colour looks black (not good), and I think the blue buttonholes on the sleeve are too bright a contrast. The trousers seem to fit well; I would prefer, literally, 1/4-1/2 inch less break (just pull 'em up, I s'pose). I, also, would prefer wider lapels. There seems to be a little bit of loose material in the upper, back part of the sleeve and armpits at the back, which, for bespoke, I find ridiculous of an error on the tailor's part. All that aside, I don't think it's bad at all.

What's your theory about all the 12x12 marble tile?

I'm thinking tap dancing, but I'm not prepared to go there yet.

who made that jacket? it better not be bespoke devil.gif

 

 

@gdl lol I call BS on 7-8 fittings.

@cdhagg, by fittings we count the amount of times you went to the tailor not the amount of measurements he took (neck, chest, waist,... three fitting right there) rotflmao.gif
