Can someone recommend a tailor in NY for some waist suppression on the jacket, and pants need to be taken in a pinch
post #1037 of 5335
Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm going to go back to the original tailor at Nordstrom's and ask him why he made the adjustments the way he did, which may give the next tailor some insight should I try to take it somewhere else and "repair" it.

The jacket came with some small darts in it already, I had asked the tailor at first if he could add them in because they are so subtle that I could not tell. I wonder if they can be expanded. Not sure how much worse the situation can get, but I'll find out soon I guess. Thanks again.

He altered it that way because that's all you can do on a ready made garment. Darts serve a specific purpose and are done at the first stages of construction, not added as an alteration adjustment. The adjustments I mentioned are posture adjustments and it is rare to find someone that wants to put the time and effort into making adjustments for posture. Even when you do there is no guarantee of a 100% result due to limitations of a finished garment. For posture fixes to a garment, MTM or custom route is the way to go.

Despos: would you have any suggestions on how the button stance should be altered to perhaps make the front appear less boxy or bulky?

looks as though you have a slightly low right shoulder.
otherwise the jacket looks pretty good except for the sleeves.
they need to be rehung to match the way your arms hang.
but first get the coat pressed to be sure it is not packing wrinkles.
or were you holding your arms at an odd angle?

Trying to decide between two sizes of a particular blazer - would greatly appreciate some guidance/advice on whether the 38 or 40 fits better/could be altered/or if neither work.  I've just begun trying to find clothes that actually fit, for the first time, and am in the process of building a new wardrobe. Regardless of which blazer is a better fit, I know I will have to have it altered by a good tailor - just want to get your opinion on which one fits best. The first 6 pics are of the size 38 blazer. I think it looks preferable to the 40, but it makes even a moderately slim shirt, such as the Gant Rugger 'Hugger" plaid oxford I'm wearing, scrunch up in the front. The 40 seems big, but I guessed it could be altered enough. My apologies for the poor image quality, and the obvious tucking in of the merchant tags.

My opinion is that the size 40 is vastly better. My opinion also isn't really worth shit.

post #1044 of 5335
The 38 is pulling and too tight. Both are (likely soon to be out of) fashionably short with a relatively high buttoning point. I would recommend more traditional proportions...

. An unstructured make like this looks better with an easy relaxed fit . The 40 creates a better expression of the styling on you. The 38 looks small.

Hello, here are some photos of my first online MTM shirt. For the fit I used body measurements. I realise that the sleeves are too short and I would really appreciate any other advice on what I should change for my next order. Thanks in advance.

Just had my first suit made by Lee Baron in Hong Kong. Thoughts? I'm a newbie but my first impression is that the jacket is a little too long. Is it possible to shorten it? Any other details I should be aware of?
post #1048 of 5335

Not sure about the jacket... IMHO if anything is a bit long it's the sleeves, not the jacket itself, but maybe it's just the shirt sleeves being short. The closed quarters look weird too but if that's what you want... Also, when I get that bunching on the thighs it usually means the pants are too long in the back. I'd say they are a little on the long side overall.

 

Now let the true pros dissect it :P

NAVIL:

you have a right low shoulder \. check the tutorials. measure it and let them know
also send them pictures #1-6-10-11. along with your comments.
the front is tight. and the waist is too full at the back, but the hips are fine.

the coat does not look too long from the front we need a back view.
the sleeves are a personal choice. but i think 1/2 of shirt sleeve looks nice.
rdiaz is right the front looks too blah. the quarters need a curve front .
look at some other examples. like dooggoshly, up above.
