It's actually a two-vent jacket.

Would it help balance the proportions of the next jacket if the button stance were to stay where it is, exactly centered between the bottom of my ribcage and top of my hipbone, and the jacket were to be made slightly longer in front, and with more open quarters?

Thanks for you help. smile.gif

I really go by eye and instinct on button position so it's hard to say without seeing the jacket with the adjustments you suggest. I don't comment on style much,not knowing your preferences but the front edges seem a little too closed. Keep in mind where the trouser rests on your waist/hips and make it all work together. Do these trousers slide down?

Compared to the previous suit, I did a completely new draft. The previous one was based on a T&C from the seventies, and never really fit at the front (due to my lack of fitting skill, surely). This current one is just based on what I think is sensible for my body type. I just measured about 20 different lengths and circumferences and drew it up, trying to distribute suppression evenly around everywhere. Got the balance and darts completely wrong, and the back still looks wrong at the arms and lumbar area, but I like it better than the old draft. I'm obviously having trouble at the side seams too, near the lumbar area. The intention of the lapel darts is to just help the lapels wrap around the curved part of the torso under at the ribcage. The idea was suggested to me by a different tailor.

I have taken better pics, and ripped it down and rebasted according to your suggestions. They're great - it just seems to "hug" my body more now.

My brother went and decided to get a suit done in Beijing instead of Hong Kong like I suggested. He paid 110 USD and got this: Rx7CW.jpgWRhav.jpg

Thoughts? I think the button stance is 3/4"-1" too high and the jacket maybe 1"-1.5" too short.

Not much to go on from these pictures. Button might be OK but the fronts look short by 3/4" or so. If the fronts were dropped down from the shoulder by 3/4 the button would be 3/4 lower. Gorge looks too high.
Long back part on trouser causing wrinkling on the back under the seat. Seat may be too tight.

You may have squarish shoulders and need the shoulder squared, This means the jacket shoulder slope is more than the slope of your shoulder and the collar stands up off your neck. You also have an erect posture and that could be contributing. This requires removing more off the back shoulder than the front shoulder.
A good tailor will diagnose and can fix this. Depending on the degree of adjustment needed on the shoulders, you may need the collar shortened.

 

Awesome, thanks so much Despos!

Hi, as you can tell, I'm relatively new to SF. I'm looking for feedback on this suit. This is pretty much the first time I'm taking a strong look at this suit (and my posture), and it looks like the sleeve length is an issue. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to get some feedback on the fit of this suit. It's my first attempt at MTM. My main issue is with the collar/shoulder area -- I have a feeling the balance is off for my posture, and that's what's causing some of the bunching. What do you think?

^ your jacket appears to not be tailored on your seat section. Personally, I would bring the rib area in to suit your body and purchase dress shirts that are shorter in length from shoulder to hand. Also, get some better shoes.

Hi, gang.  Newbie here who could use a bit of advice on the jacket below.

 

A few things I noticed that don't need repeating (unless I'm wrong):

 

-Sleeves are too short

-Jacket needs to be ~1" longer

-Jacket waist is a little tight

 

What else should be different about this jacket for it to fit better?  Why are there creases on the upper part of the sleeve?  Or the indentation below my right shoulder in the front view?  (Chest too narrow?)

 

Thanks for the help.

Hey guys,

 

Hopefully this is a good place for this question. A friend of mine will be buying a suit for me from another country (where it will be much cheaper than where I live). I want to give her specifications on what the suit should have and what it shouldn't (this will be my first "good" suit, the last time i bought one i had no idea what i was doing). I have a slim build at 6'4" and 180lb.

 

so far I have:

1) needs to be navy or charcoal (plain cloth, no pattern?)

2) should not have pleated pants

3) must be the right size (especially for the shoulders) and have long enough sleeves

4) slim fit if possible

5) single breasted, two button?

6) wide or narrow lapels? (i don't have skinny ties, but could buy some if that's required with narrow lapels)

 

 

Is this a good list of things to ask for? anything I should change? anything I should ask for? thanks for your help in advance!

First time posting for feedback. Suit is a Sienna from Suitsupply in 42L. No alterations. Thinking it might be too long for me. I appreciate all feedback. Thanks!

I got a great deal on this zegna suit but I just don't know if its my size. Basically, this is my problem. My chest measures 40 inches, but I normally wear a size 38 because I like a slim fit. The shoulders and chest on a 38 are usually a bit too tight. After trying on this size 40R, it is more comfortable, but it just seems too big all around.

Any suggestion on what to do to make it fit right?

Also, from the pics, can you tell if I have sloped shoulders? I've always been a bit curious about that but I can't tell for the life of me smile.gif

hello PS
the problems here will always come up on a rtw suit for you.

the coat is an inch too short.
you have aright low shoulder that is causing the right hip to ride high.
you may want to pad that shoulder and let out the right hip.

on the trousers the high hip is puling the trouser to the right, see the back view.
the center back seam needs to be re shaped. and, shortened at the top.
the legs are too narrow for you. you have heavy caffs see how they pull at the caffs.
