Looks find, I tend to shy away from Internet tailors because it can all so easily go wrong. Looks good, good trouser length.

hello mikael
if the shoulders are comfortable then:
you have a right low shoulder.
you have very erect posture. the back needs to be shortened from the top.
the sides at the waist and hips need to be let out.
the sleeves can be rehung [rotated] .

 

Not bad, my first impression is the arms are a bit roomy. You need to undo the shipping stitching on the vents so we get a better idea of how it fits. If it was my suit I would shorten the trouser length so they don't roll at the bottom, but that's just my opinion.

Looking for feedback on fit and needed fixes on my suit.  Thank you.

Recent purchase from WW Chan in Shanghai. It's a linen coat, meant to be casual. Generally I'm quite happy with it, but the shoulders seem a bit...off. They are completely unpadded, which is fine, but I think that Chan's set them a bit wide. I'm a wide guy, with big shoulders and big arms. They swear if they move the sleevehead in any the coat will be too tight.700

Is there something funny in how they are constructing the shoulder? I feel like this coat makes my shoulder looks a bit sloped and droopy, which they aren't. Anyone have any thoughts on what is going on here?

Looking for feedback on this navy blazer and gray sportcoat. They are both completely untailored. Looking for suggestions from the master tailors regarding all aspects of what I should do with them, other than shortening sleeves. I certainly feel like they're big around the waist, but not sure if I should size down, since 38R or 39R is usually noticeably tight in the chest (pulling at the buttoning point).

If it helps, I'm about 5'10" or 5'11", approximately 175 lbs. Both the blazer and sportcoat are size 40R.

the back needs to be shortened slightly at the top.
the right sleeve needs to be lengthened more than the left does.
cant see much on the trousers the coat is covering it.
i thought the hamstrings are at the back of the ankles.
you might browse through the tutorials. something there may help you understand.[/quote

Thank you for your input. I wasn't thinking when I wrote hamstring and edited my post. I guess you caught it before I did. Thanks again!

Question for the tailors: Do you agree with the advice in this link about the best fit for a suit or sport jacket? I was watching the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" and Sean Connery seem to be the perfect example of that advice. I'm especially concerned about the advice of the coat sleeves ending at the bump on the wrist (pinky side) to show 1/4 to 1/2 inch of shirt sleeve.

I don't see what could possibly be concerning you about this?

  I just want to know if it's the right advice. I went to a tailor and she seemed to think that would be too short and look funny, as she put it.

Second shirt from Modern Tailor.  You can't tell from the picture, but the neck has to be made smaller by 0.25".  I have the compulsion to go slimmer through the stomach and hips area, but this may be because my pants won't sit in the correct place and they cause the shirt to come untucked and/or muffin top slightly.  I think the sleeves need to be a tad longer and maybe open the cuffs up a little bit so they sit lower on my hand.  The pictures make it look like there is a ton of extra fabric in the sleeves, but I believe this is due to the wrinkled areas around my inner elbow.  I think I may also enlarge the yolk/shoulder area by 0.5" to move the seems further out on my shoulder.

 

Anyway, I am in need of assistance.  Thanks guys.  Incoming terrible cellphone bathroom pictures.

I think the biggest problem is the style of jacket you had made. It's a very strange style jacket you have there. It looks like a combination cold-weather peacoat and loungesuit. I can't imagine a use for this coat as linen is too lightweight to work as a coat. Why did you chose this style?

Interesting piece. The collar gap is clearly there I have to say.

I already posted this in the Indochino thread but it might make more sense here:

As I have a V-taper that basically makes it impossible to buy OTR (and I slouch my right shoulder which you can see quite clearly from the pictures), I've resorted to online MTM for the time being and although I didn't expect much, I decided to give Indochino a try. The first results were as expected i.e. not good. So I'm going to order a re-make and I'd appreciate any additional input regarding what should be changed and how much.

I also ordered a shirt (the one I'm wearing in the pictures) and if my overall feeling for the suit is that if I get the measurements right, I'd maybe consider ordering again from them in the future, for some reason I'm most likely going to steer clear from the shirts.









So here are my opinions about what's off, I'd love to hear yours.

Shirt,

* wider collar, really tight right now
* narrower sleeves, taking more in in the biceps than by the cuff
* take a little in in the body as well
* it's kind of bunching up right now on the back, near the collar. Should the back be wider or do they lower the collars on shirts or what should be done to avoid this?

Pants

* a slightly lower rise?
* narrower legs
* order un-hemmed and get cuffs

Jacket

* maybe not so obvious in the pics but my biggest gripe is the bunching up happening behind the collar - so lower the collar?
* collar gap? What should be done to alleviate that?
* narrower shoulders for a more natural look
* take it in in the chest as well - there seems to be some excess fabric on the back?
* take it in in the biceps - quite a lot of excess fabric there
* raise the arm hole a bit
* rotate the sleeves.. inward?
* the length seems okay to me.

So what do you guys think? Did I miss anything? Overdoing it? smile.gif Another thing is how Indochino would be able to accommodate all this and how to translate it into inches in specific places that you input on the site.

Thanks!

It's funny how you block your head out since I'm guessing that your head is in your avatar
