The fit, overall, seems pretty good, save for two things - the jacket is not lying flat against the back of your shoulders, just below the nape of your neck (which is a fairly minor alteration to fix), and, more troubling, the shoulder of the sleeve seems to be dimpling, which is usually a sign of less-than-stellar construction, at least from what the photos show. IRL, I hope that it may be just the photo.

Still a little cold for loafers without socks, but I'm not a pussy, unlike UC.

 

 

I would say this fit is perfect, the jacket, shirt  perfectly combine with the trousers to give a casual yet "look at me" effect....Love the loafers, no socks wear also. I must say I you have made me enjoy looking at the French flag even more worship.gif

I enjoy looking at this my good man, thumbs-up.gif on the neatly tied bow tie. However the grunge facial hair, not so much.

Victor, you are divine. I absoloutely love this look, however I was a bit frightened by the large jacket pocket, probably a direct result of me being a novice. A perfect look for the 'Gloomy Moscow'. Indeed my favorite Russian assassin

I think you may be seeing spella camicia on the shoulders (The Jort of SuSu have this). I don't notice a dimple otherwise. However, he seems to have a sleeve pitch issue with all that wrinkling/bunching at the top of the arms.
Other than the back-roll issue mentioned (Really easy fix), overall fit is excellent. I'd personally like to have seen the full fit pic, which would give us a much better idea of the suit as a whole.

Yeah, it's indefensible, particularly in light of the warm weather here this week. Sometimes, the heart wants what it wants. But, thank you.

And, thank you, too. I learned from the fella quoted above you.

The sleeve length, SC length, button stance and lapel width are all great!

 

Thanks Alex! I think the extra fabric on the pants was due to the combination of the pants being worn a bit too low on my hip as well as them not having been tailored yet, so the bottom of the pants were hitting the floor. I was also impressed with how it fit OTR, I'm glad I stumbled upon styleforum, or else I never would have heard about suitsupply.

Thanks for your comments! I thought you were talking about the spella camicia, but I'm glad yywwyy chimed in.

Ok, I'll make sure to ask them to fix the back issue. What should I say specifically so the tailor knows I want that fixed? I'm assuming they'll know what I'm talking about and how to fix it, but I want to be sure. Also, Is there anything the tailor can do easily to adjust excess bunching on the top of my arms?

 

Thanks again for all your comments guys!

Ugh. What a detestable trend. It brings down the whole outfit because it looks like you don't know how to knot a tie to the correct length. It's trying way too hard and it strikes me as childish.

You are a gentleman and a scholar. I couldn't agree more with your view on these ridiculous farty habits.
