My comment was meant for a jacket in a picture that I no longer see here. Sorry about possible confusion.

I know the photo qualities are low, but if you have comments on what you see, I'd appreciate them greatly. This was a recent Mtm attempt.
I'm especially curious on how to decrease the "kick" I see at the bottom of the trousers without compromising how the back of the trousers fall in line nicely. Also, can this suit be considered to be "draped," or does it look off?

I would do this; Jacket balance, lengthen the front 1/2", shorten back 1/2". Shorten sleeves. Shorten jacket length 3/4". Lower button point 3/8"

Don't know what the "kick" is on the trouser. The way the back of the trouser stands away from your shoe at the hem? If so, it is not an issue.

Thanks for those comments! Any thoughts on the way the jacket fits? I intentionally left some room especially at the chest, but not sure if it looks okay. I want to have a draping effect, but I don't think the tailor uses a drape cut.
I called "kick" the way that the trousers do not fall straight at the front but collapses into my legs. Kind of random, I guess.

All my comments were regarding how the jacket fits. hard to judge the drape form these dark pictures and equally hard to distinguish drape from a full chest. Drape is equal parts cut and construction.

To get the trouser to hang straight to the top of the shoe is about shaping the leg with the iron.

Nice suit! I might shorten the sleeves a smidgen as well depending on where most of my shirt cuffs fell. Jacket length and balance look right to me. Could be slightly shorter but I think that's a judgment call. I see the fullness you asked for in the chest, but I wouldn't call it a drape suit.

Hello all, this is a suit from Indochino and I wanted to know of ways to improve the fit. It was my first suit from them and I just wanted to know how to improve the fit for my next suit. Thank you for all your help.

Hi, I've just bought a suit and would really love some feedback on the fit. I'm new to the forum, please be forgiving if I'm making mistake in posting in the wrong thread. I think this is the right one for fit advice for my suit by a master tailor, since the instructions didn't seem to allow for specific questions around the pants, I'll be posting another fit critique post on the Official Fit Critique thread with specific pants questions. Thanks in advance.

Tailors, Is it possible to make these armholes higher? I do have excess room just below the armpit both at the back and front chest. There seems also to be vertical excess cloth at the armpit, which I have to get fixed anyway.
post #1631 of 5146
It is not reasonable or even that possible to make armholes higher on a finished garment.
post #1632 of 5146
After searching quite a bit, I did see that. Also found this thread:
http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?60572-THE-high-armhole

If I really, really wanted something done, would option #2 be possible with a very thin shoulder pad?
If I wanted to specify on the next cut of the mtm suit, how much would be close to the maximum I could raise the armhole?

notice that #2 works only if there is a sloping shoulders problem.
and the most changed that would be gained would be one inch.

you have a right low shoulder. see the tutorials to measure the low shoulder.
the right hip is too tight also.
shorten the sleeves so that 1/2 " of shirt sleeve shows.
the lighting only shows half of the garment,. lighting should come from behind the camera.
we have to depend on good pictures, to give accurate .advice.
are you wearing the trousers on your hips or on the waist?
there seems to be some excess length at the top of the back.
again tutorials "that pesky roll below the shoulder".
post #1635 of 5146

The pants are on my waist and I never noticed my right shoulder. You are the first person ever to point that out. I think the pants have to much room in the crouch and thats why they look kind of funny. Would it help if I took better pictures ( lighting is pretty bad)? How is the jacket? Do you think it needs to be a bit longer and tighter fitting? Is a low shoulder normal? Is the tutorial for measuring for a low shoulder on this forum or Indochino website? Thank you for all you help.
