post #1321 of 5146

I recently took the plunge and just got my first MTM shirt.  Ran it through the washing machine and line dried.

 

I want to order more, but want to get your thoughts on the fit before doing so.  I'm quite happy with the shirt, but I'm new to MTM shirts, and want to know if there is any improvement I can make to the shirt.

 

Thanks.

If you pull the back up at the collar at the center back seam you will see the center vent straighten out.
The wrinkling on the trouser is a balance issue caused by the back part being too long in relation to the front part. Lifting the back part of the trouser will lift the trouser off your calves.
The fitting issues you have are difficult and expensive to do. You could keep trying different makers looking for a cut that is closer to your physical needs and requires the minimal adjusting or use a MTM service that would make the proper adjustments.

Thanks, I will try a 36 and report back. I think the chest will be too tight though as my chest measures 37-38".

Noob here, with three different suits in three different fits from Suit Supply. I'm looking for advice on (a) which one to keep, and (b) what needs to be altered to improve fit.
First off, Napoli fit:
118
Second, Sevilla:
117
Finally, Sienna fit:
118
I know nothing about these things, but to me it looks like there are at least three problems:
-excess fabric at the back of the shoulder - is this because my shoulders hunch forward?
-something weird at the back lower right - might be because I didn't let the vents out
-fit on right shoulder is bad on all three - do I have an asymmetry in my shoulders?
Any and all comments welcome.
next time please button up your shirt collar .
the pictures dont show much. but from your description you have a right low shoulder.
the hip on the same side as the low shoulder usually is high.
i cant see the back problem. can you take a larger better lit picture?

I apologize for the poor camera and the slightly odd angled pictures.

 

I'm thinking that the pants need to be shortened and the jackets sleeves shortened 3/4" as it goes past the joint in my wrist. But I'm still learning, so I could use some advise.

Thanks!

the cuff is too large, if the circumference were smaller, it would not slide down past the base of your thumb.
when you order again tell them about this and send them the first picture.
you also have a low right shoulder. check the tutorials on how to measure.

first make sure that the shirt sleeves are at the base of your thumbs.
then the coat sleeves should show a quarter to half inch of shirt sleeves.
just take a bit off the trouser length.

This is my first suit and I was wondering if it is worth keeping to have it tailored to fit me, or if the fit is looking completely off. Apologies that the photos aren't the best (colors and such are way off), but I did my best to have clear, well-lit photos. 

For reference sake, I'm 5'11, 200 lbs, and am a sprinter on the college track team (I have sprinter "thunder" thighs) - I know I need to have the pants let out some because the suit is a slim-fitting one (pockets are bulging), but I don't know what else needs to be done. 


Thank you in advance - you are a great asset to this community! smile.gif 

Regards,


-Mike

the jacket needs the sleeves to be shortened.
the trousers dont have enough outlet to ease the gaping pockets.
the waist can be let out and also the crotch. the cut off cloth from
the bottom can be used to add even more to the crotch/thigh.

if this is suit separates, thats where the jacket and trousers are
sold separately, then you could get a larger trouser.

A tailor, thanks for the feedback.  Will definitely reduce the cuff size on my next order.  I didn't even know my right shoulder is lower all these years biggrin.gif  BTW, how are the other aspects of fit such as chest, waist, seat and arms?

 

Thanks again.

Can you offer some feedback on what should be done with my suit.  It is my first MTM which I brought offline, it feels snug (especially the pants) so is there anything I can do about that? and where the pants sit feels quite low.  Looking at the photos of me in it, it looks bigger on then it feels if that makes sense?  Thanks in advance

Which is a better fit? Thanks.

Howard Yount's Made in USA line in a size 30. Compared to Italy line, this has a higher rise, slightly smaller leg opening. Unhemmed. The way the front seat sinks inward bothers me. There's less pocket pursing.

Howard Yount's Made in Italy line in a size 30. Hemmed. Cleaner looking front, but more pocket pursing.

Thank you, a tailor!

I went ahead and purchased a larger sized trouser.

Besides shortening the jacket sleeves - does anything else need to be altered?

Thanks again for your very helpful input!

Tried to take better pictures of the charcoal suit in Napoli fit, which seemed the best fit in my opinion: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

670

So, what could be done to improve the fit (apart from shortening the pants which are obviously too long)?
