yes. It is Suitsupply. Quality is decent. Especially the cotton and linen ties. I have quite a few now. Mostly bright and colourful ones that I don't wear a lot...dark brwon and navy is really my comfort zone

Hello friends smile.gif

Nippy spring morning here in NYC is a great excuse for a last bout of autumnal plaid-on-plaid action and cashmere layer.

Cheers Betelgeuse! I tend to enjoy wearing louder and colourful things during spring and summer, as it really matches the spirit of those seasons.

Sure, it's a 3 roll 2, cotton, unlined SuitSupply jacket, perfect for warm weather. Bought it the other day for €29, discounted from €200!

The first picture shows a short front balance, but that could not be there in fact. Also, do not make those trousers slimmer! They're tight in your hips (the gapping pockets are the evidence) as is, let some out there.

 I actually wanted to shorten the jacket for 1 cm.. The shoulders are to be fitted, the fillings need to be so to say fixed/ cut. I have problematic legs, my quads are enormous and this last month I am even skipping leg days in the gym but.. I want to tighten them a bit starting from below the behind to the knees.

Why is this jacket both sitting well beyond the width of your shoulders and completely squared off and then higher? This looks like a bespoke fitting so did you ask the tailor to do this?

As I said, the shoulders are to be fitted. I have one more tryout and then everything will be done. I am not sure what they are called but I have fillings in the shoulder and they are to be fitted better so I think that's why you all find the shoulders a bit odd.

On that latter, it's difficult to tell, but it generally looks good except that I would double-check that when the jacket is sitting normally (ie you're not taking a photo), the lower front halves of the jacket aren't overlapping too much (possibly because of a slightly narrow chest?). As I say, it's marginal in the photo, and could simply be postural rather than real.

 

 

 

 

 

There must be something wrong with me since I actually think the jacket is a bit long :D Here are some more photos:

As you can see, there is still work needed in the shoulder section and the collar is yet to be made.

Glad that you said it cause, yes, there might be something wrong cause the jacket doesn't look short, it's short. Measure it.

Do not shorten the jacket, it's already quite a bit short, in my opinion. I'll not comment on the shoulder line as the tailor's style is very far from my taste, but bringing them in a bit would suit you better, in my opinion. Btw, the sleeve seems to need some rotating, but those pictures are not very good.

Regarding the trousers, tightening them will not resolve the problem, as your diagnosis is wrong, in my opinion, they suffer from long back balance and no leg opening in this world will solve this problem.

Did your tailor mention some of those alterations?

The jacket length will remain the same. Yes, the shoulder will definitely be brought in and they are not in the so to say final stage. I will post more photos of the shoulders, sleeves and the overall jacket when it fully done for you all to check it out and tell me what you think. As for the trousers, I am not sure I fully understand you but the tailor did mention there will be some alterations to them.
