While standards of fit are influenced by personal taste and fashion, they are largely based on the way our bodies are made and move. (For example: Wide lapels may come and go, but high arm holes have a timeless function.) Identifying a properly-fitted garment takes a lot of knowledge. And much more is required to construct such a garment. In this thread, all are welcome, from those purchasing a first suit, to those seeking more advanced refinement.
What makes this thread special is that it will be curated by three of America's finest tailors, representing three generations of the craft: a tailor, Despos, and jefferyd. They will teach us not simply what is wrong with a garment, but why it is wrong, and how it can be fixed, if it can be fixed. In exchange for such generous service, our tailors, ask only one thing--good pictures, so defined:
Here are some examples:
We thank you in advance, a tailor, Despos, and jefferyd. And if you three want to tear apart the fit above pls. do!
PS: We now have a Second Tailors' Thread on construction and alteration techniques.
