Just got clothes back from the tailor, what's the verdict? - Page 2

Thanks Master, you're right I'm over reacting. I did use an in house tailor so that should make things better. Im going back today to try on a smaller size. Ill take more pictures then. Also the only thing he altered was the sleeves he didn't take in the chest.

The fit is on the baggier side, but honestly not that bad compared to what a lot of people wear.

Always try a size down before you buy a suit / blazer.

I'm somewhat in between sizes, with a 36 being too tight in the chest and a 38 being a little baggy (somewhat like yours - prob a bit better).

Don't fret it - try on a few options, see if the smaller size is better. If they don't let you swap, a tailor should be able to make what you have plenty wearable.

Alright, I just took some better pictures with better lighting and proper posture. Here's the album http://imgur.com/a/MQKGU#Z04sk I went back to BB and tried on a 41 and a 40 (the one pictured is a 42). The 40 was tight across the chest and on the shoulders and the 41 was a little better but didn't leave a lot of room to grow (I'm currently going to the gym and getting bigger). I'm thinking I will have the center pulled in 1/2" or so and definitely have the waist pulled in too. I checked the shoulders on my current blazer and the shoulders feel reall well and go right to the end of the shoulder bone. I took pictures of me with and without the jacket so you could get a better idea of my body shape. I hope this helps. Let me know what you guys think.

IMO shoulders are fine, just get the chest and body taken in.

pants look a size too big (see the bunch around the belt at the back, aren't they loose? also baggy cut. also hemmed 1 or more too long, but depends on your preference. with a wider leg opening, more break is ok.

The only reason you overreacted was because of some of the ridiculous responses in this thread.

You don't need to size down, and like you said, you plan to fill in a bit so your 42 is fine - honestly it looks good in the picture. The waist IS a bit big and the pant length is a tad too baggy/long but those are easy fixes. The jacket is fine in the chest and in the shoulders and anyone who is telling you otherwise probably expects you to return it and purchase a $4,000 suit.

The Fitzgerald blazer is a nice piece. Which size are you modeling in the pics? 41 or 42? The whole outfit looks acceptable in these pictures and fits better than what 90% of the suit-wearing population has on, not to mention what kids your age are wearing. So don't stress or feel ripped off if you keep it. That being said, it looks like you've got room in the shoulders to size down a hair. Definitely plenty of room in the waist. Don't worry too much about getting bigger at the gym. Building muscle will mostly make you thicker. You'd have to add a ton of weight before your lats and deltoids grow enough to make your shoulders significantly wider. I think the legs of the pants could do with a bit more taper as well. Getting the perfect fit and building a wardrobe is a process. Don't expect to hit a grand slam on your very first at bat, especially since it sounds like you expect your body to be changing dramatically in the near future.

Take in the waist a tad, shorten the pants so that there is not so much of a break, and you'll be in the top 1 or 2%.

Am I the only one noticing the vent that's popping open?

It could be due to posture, but bring that up when you take it back to the tailor.

My observation is pretty much the same as everyone else's. The waist and pants are too loose. Just have it trimmed a bit.
