Oh, if you move the button on the shirt's cuff to narrow the circumference of the cuff when buttoned, it will sit higher on your wrist. Then Robert is your father's brother.

TB, I think the back could be cleaned up a little, probably an easy alteration. Other than that I think it looks awesome, congrats!

I think it came out quite well for a first shot and with no alterations. The following are my personal critiques:
  • For being the most natural shoulder option they offer, it's certainly not a very natural shoulder. I don't like how the padding extends so far past the shoulder seam, which you can really see in the right shoulder. Next time I will have him bring the shoulders in a touch, which I think will help. The sleeve pitch is off, although not as off as it looks in this photo (slightly sloped sidewalk affected my posture).
  • The jacket could be slightly more fitted in the chest, but I think this is pretty good for a wedding, funeral, and civil servant drone suit. I am happy with it.
  • The back looks good to me. Wrinkling in the photo is due to excess shirt fabric.
  • The trousers are, in my opinion, perfect and the best-fitting pair I own.
  • The quality of construction is excellent all around, as best as I can tell.
There are many more EAT/Tom James suits in my future. Please give me your thoughts.

Thread, I like the overall look. Grey tweed + denim is probably my fall weekend combo.

The quarters are too closed. That's stylistic, not fit-ilistic but I'm still correct in saying that.

Are you standing more naturally in the first or second side pic? First and you're golden, second and the sleeve pitch is quite a bit off.

Something is off with the shoulders in the back shot. I assume that you're pushing your shoulders back more than normal to have good posture on the internets and the jacket is actually fine. If it were like that normally, you'd feel a bit of tightness there.

Any thoughts on this?  I'll be in my tailor's area on tuesday and wanna drop it off then if the suit should be kept/doesn't require extreme fixes. Thanks

Here are some pics with a better-fitting shirt. Jacket sleeves look just a shade too short to me, especially the right sleeve, and the collar height seems a little low at the back of the neck. I know it's a nit-pic, but am I wrong?

Any observations at all would be greatly appreciated.

Yea Thread - sleeve pitch is off and he made the jacket as if you were stooped over when you're not.

I'd shorten the jacket a tad and definitely open up the quarters.

I think you're standing slightly lower on one side. Look at your knees in the pic. Or look at the board at shoulder level in the back pic. One side you're a touch higher then the other.

The slight tilt might be making the sleeves look slightly longer/shorter.

Just needs the basic adjustments. Nothing is off in an extreme manner.

Balance is good. You could have the collar raised up to 3/8" Back has unusual diagonal fullness lines causing weird wrinkles. Would slope the back shoulder to clean up the blades and this will help to raise the collar. You can only slope the shoulder more on this jacket because there is no outlet on the back shoulder but on the next jacket, have the collar raised 3/8" as well as the neck point on the shoulder line. This will correct the shoulder slope and collar issue.

Sleeves need to be reshaped and sized to the armhole.

I don't like to judge jacket length when wearing jeans but you could have the jacket made shorter anywhere form 1/2 to 1" and the tailor could open the line of the front panels at the same time. You will look fine with a shorter jacket and it would reduce the space between the hem and the patch pocket. As is, the patch pocket looks too small for the size of the jacket and located too far from the hem.
Have the front button moved. It is off and causing a bit of pull. They may not have cut enough to adjust for your low shoulder.

Any advice would be much appreciated, but pretty sure I'm headed toward reconstructing the shoulder. I actually like the way the rest of the suit fits in terms of length, tapered to the body, etc (I've since shortened the pants a little so the break isn't as bad as the pictures below)... but I'll take any advice from the experts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't try to explain it away. Shxtty measurements make up the bulk of the blame. You made an entire thread for these shxtty shoulders.

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

 

Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

That jacket is too short and it's WAAAAY too tight across the hip. Look at how your vent is exploding open. Your shoulders are too wide. The sleeves may also be too tight. Besides the shoulders, the jacket could probably use a little extra space all over. The pants look too tight too, but I'd need better pictures of them to really call it.

a tailor and VinnyMac -- Thanks for the great feedback!

New navy suit from Black Lapel. First time using them, and the fit is pretty comparable to some MTM suits I was measured for in person. I'm wondering if the shoulders are maybe a bit too wide? Also, does the shoulder look a bit lumpy?

 

The pant leg is a bit more tapered than I would like - it seems like the pants break in an odd way with this small an opening (I like to wear the pants with a break). Next time, I would probably go an inch and a half wider around for the leg. I think the jacket sleeves need to come up a half inch or so -- currently, no sleeve showing with the shirt they made for me, nor with one of my older and well-fitting shirts. Next time, I'd probably also ask for no stacked buttons and a less slanted breast pocket (is too much of the pocket behind the lapel?).

 

Does anyone else have problems with the crease of the pants not lining up right when wearing suspenders? Is there any fix for that?

 

Suit hasn't been pressed yet, shirt hasn't been laundered.

You should pull your jacket in, closer to your collar, the gap it to large. If you got rid of that space the shoulders should be where they need to be. The pant legs should be shorter as well, that is an easy fix.
