Brilliant tie--smartly played against the plaid suit and PS. Good counterpoint.

Thanks for the feedback.

This is my first double breasted suit from Beckett & Robb. I do think it has some issues. I'm wondering if my alterations tailor can intervene and fix things.

If there were a Tailor's Guild, your tailor would be brought before a disciplinary committee and get his license suspended. I could see how you could really make a great impression in a correctly cut and fitted double-breasted suit with (as others have said) a wider lapel, but oh boy this is not it. If there was a suit salesman involved as well, he should never be trusted again. I don't mean to be overly harsh or glib, but you spend a lot of money on your clothing and deserve to hear the truth.

Just an example....


Yes, but WHY? This is a whole long post about how 'bad' it looks, but I can't find anything specific here to indicate what you see wrong with it and what he can do about it! It's useful criticism as a starting point to say there's some issues, but it just goes nowhere from there... the closest point was that it was 'unflattering'....

How about leading by example.

Several other posters had already pointed out specifics. There was no need to repeat it.

a) Mind blown. Master-Classer is actually Master-Classter

b) Kai, what would happen if you shortened the jacket a bit and toned down the waist suppression? Is this crazy talk?

welcome back, O.

SB - quite the bold look you have on today.

If others pointed out the substantive issues, what was the point of your post?

Today's boring fit. Just didn't feel up to being adventurous today. The pants to this suit drive me nuts. After several attempts to properly taper them, I find I need to go in with the knife one more time to get it right...Sheesh!

Good, deep tie vagina today though.

I think he got mislead/ screwed by whoever sold it to him and/ or who did the tailoring. While I have seen worse-fitting suits on this board, I have never seen anyone buy that expensive of a garment that was so ill-suited to the wearer. Not one person has anything positive to say about the suit, and for good reason. And in the past I have been highly-complimentary to Kai for fits that stirred some controversy.

Isn't it interesting how Kai thanked me for my post yet others seems to be so offended? People who have been on this board for a while know that I generally endeavor to be constructive, and I thought I framed my comments as nicely as possible. Do you know how many times people have played "Pile-up on the Newbie" on this board over the years? Has anyone ever seen me do it? There have been many occasions where a new guy posts for the first time in a poorly-fitting Mens Wearhouse nightmare and the first posts they see are pretty much "your suit sucks" and I have been among the few who have tried to steer them in the right direction and welcomed them to the board.

Why'd you match the PS and tie? They should go together, compliment each other. Not match like a box set. I think that's especially important considering they're

 

a) loud, red colors

b) lost in the negative space of grey and white.

 

I also think the buttons are supposed to be a bit darker if it's a suit, right?

Collar looks good though. So does the fit. fing02[1].gif
