Everything says that this jacket is the right length but I can't put my finger on why it still looks short to me.

I will have to agree on that! It does look alittle off but it could be because of the sleeves being so short which is throwing everything off?

Orge gets that a lot. It is very minor. Perhaps he just has long arms. People tend to look at hands relative to the hem without looking at the whole picture.

Since my name was mentioned three times, I must appear...........

On the rise issue, you are all basically saying the same thing, just kind of talking through each other. Stitchy, you are not entirely incorrect in that a higher rise will lead to crotch droop but that is on incorrectly fitting pants. A higher rise will simply have the pants sit higher up on your waist, assuming you account for the increase in waist size as you move up (assuming you don't have an Adonis-like body like myself). On some people, their waist might be 34 inches when the pants sit 3 inches below the navel, but move up to 34.5-35 inches when you move the pants up an inch or two on the waist so a 1-2 inch higher rise on that person, keeping a 34 waist, will lead to MC Hammer. Stiches, on your custom (not MTM!!!) pants, we are doing a bit higher rise but we also accounted for a bit bigger waist. We are also doing a fitting so we can look at issues before the pants get finished. Your inseam won't change regardless of rise, assuming you are wearing the pants in the same spot on your waist, which as I mentioned is not always the case for everyone.

now that that is done, can someone tell me who the hell this Fred49 character is and why we are talking about him confused.gif

oh and sitiches your jacket is too short (and the pants sitting too low on your waist) and Orge's jacket, while not technically short, he would benefit from a longer jacket to balance out his short torso.

i wish some people had this same outlook. I think a lot of people forget how easy it is to SCROLL PAST SOMETHING YOU DONT LIKE AND STOP FUCKING COMPLAINING.

Id hate to see how some folks are in real life. must be total pains to deal with.

I would have thought that would be a symptom of having short arms. Other than any of those considerations it's a really good look.

I wear my green tie with a blue suit and a very thin striped shirt (light blue/white).

That way it doesn't pop out that much, it remains subtle.

Hint: He sits in one of these and slowly spins around revealing tented hands a la Monty Burns when you enter the room while going, muhuhuhahahahahaaaaaa! Also, I can picture him slowly stroking a cat although I've never witnessed that personally.

I am deliberately not mentioning names here and I am not even interested in discussing who prompted this comment because I think this is about how we all decide to post rather than targeting individuals.

I disagree with your complaint.




I like inStitches, but every other post is by him. I don't want to put him on ignore, because he's a nice guy and occasionally says funny things about pants.

What to do.
