post #1771 of 5271

Just got my MTM shirt in the mail. First things I noticed; There is a crease around the yoke that I believe stems from the tightness of the fit. The shoulders could be lengthened 1/4''. There is some bunching around the rib cage. The chest is a bit tight. Considering that I haven't washed it yet, theses issues will only be magnified. Your suggestions are appreciated.

first, why didnt you button the collar?
for a critique the shirt should be photoed
both tucked and untucked.
in the areas that are tight ,there is no way to
alter it larger. shirts do not have extra cloth
inside to make it larger. just make a new shirt.
the problem at the yoke is a cutting mistake.
there are two curved lines where there
should be straight lines.
also i wonder if the hip measure is too tight.

if you decide to reorder, send them these pictures.
also you may send them the shirt to repair the yoke.

Hey a tailor,

 

I apologize for not including the untucked pictures. The shirt was too tight around the hips and will need about 2 inches added. Thank you for solving the yoke issue. I had some bunching of fabric around the upper rib cage, just below the arm pits. Any idea what the cause could be?

ok g man
from the top.
the shoulders, one quarter to one half inch on each side.
the bunching is mostly from the tightness.
i dont think that 2 inches will be enough. thats 1/2" on each side
of the front and 1/2" on each side of the back. 4" is better.
if the chest is that tight then the hips are the same. and
you may need 4"there also.
when a shirt is tight in the hips it has a tendency to creep up
higher and out of the trousers.

He is also going to ask them to fix the shoulder divots, if possible.

Any suggestions are very much appreciated.









on the coat i would add an "erect posture". and 3"to the waist and 3"to the hips.

on the trousers add 2" to the thigh.. make the bottom large enough to cover the shoe laces.
that will give him more room over the calfs. does he wear the trousers low?
the rise looks rather short.

does he have one low shoulder? go to the tutorials find "do i have a low shoulder?
it will tell you how to measure for a low shoulder.

also send them these pictures.

My two main concerns are 1) the shoulders (divots?) and 2) the back (does my butt make the vent push out too much?)



hey MAP
if its uncomfortable then its too tight. did you try a larger one?
yes its too tight in the butt.
you have a right low shoulder and a right high hip.
check on how to measure these.

i take it this is a made to measure?
if so then the problem is the low shoulder .
it should have been cut for that.

This looks like a very interesting thread so I guess I'll give it a try. Just go easy on me - I only recently realized that NBA rookies aren't the ideal role models for suit fashion. This is an Indochino suit, and while it seems that Indochino has been drawing the ire of many posters here, at least its a step in the right direction for me considering the fact that I can see now my last suit was more appropriately sized for a 6 foot 10 mob enforcer. Everyone has to start somewhere, right? I'm certainly new at this, so whatever helpful feedback and advice I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just had this suit made. My tailor is closed until Monday and I was wondering what is up with this? It is a full canvas suit. Do I need to take it back so they can take some fabric off? Or do I just need to get it pressed?

Press first and wait to see if wrinkles come back. Use heat and pressure, no steam. This looks like what happens when it has been subjected to steam. Wait till Monday is safer.

If the wrinkles don't come out is it ruined? Why did it do that? My other suits I can steam to remove wrinkles.

I am trying to think of something worse you could do to a suit than to hang it in a bathroom with the shower on or use a steamer on a suit but I just can't think of something.

The other suits you have steamed are doing the same thing but it doesn't show up as much or you can't see it.

Seems a little ridiculous that everything says you should steam your suit to remove wrinkles.
