The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions - Page 127

Thank you for your input Despos. For my own references, do you think the shoulders on this Suit Supply 38S fits me even though everything else is too big? The reason I ask is so I can keep in mind the measurement of the shoulders specifically to use while I continue searching for the better ft suit. (Assuming this one fits the shoulder correctly)

Also for clarification, IF we say the shoulder does fit, and everywhere else does not, I assume the suit is still not worth keeping and altering correct?

You could use this shoulder or point to point measure but the measure changes with different styles of shoulders. It would take a lot of work by a very good tailor to get this cut down properly. better to find something closer to the fit you want.

I thought that I'd shake things up with a less "formal" look: shorter rise, belt (that's more decorative than functional since I thought the pants should be able to rest on top of the hip without being cinched), plain hem, and waistband resting on the top of the hips. Here is the result. Uggh... First off I know they're too long. My problem is with the fit from waist to thigh. Mind you this shot was taken after a day at the office, but it still strikes me as a disaster with the double-wrinkle on the fly, the ripples on both sides, the creases just below the crotch on both legs, and the puckering pockets.

So, can this be fixed or am I better off going back to my comfort zone of pleats/cuffs/long-rise?

not enough to go on from this picture to help you out. Looks like you have a high right hip. The fit here isn't that great but it's a poor picture.

Would you say this is still acceptable? I'm going to size up one size anyway when buying shirts again.

You might find a better fit in the same size from a different maker that uses a fuller cut. you will probably end up finding a sleeve full enough for your bicep and need the body reduced.

Recently, I was able to obtain this new suit for a great price — I knew there needs to be some alterations needed to be done (as with all OTRs) such as hemming the pants, tapering and shortening the sleeves, and possibly shortening the length of the jacket.

Now that I took photos, it turns out that the trousers need some work too, to remove the back "wrinkles" — how would this be fixed, raising/lowering the seat, or something else?
Also it looks like I might need to take in the back a little bit (I might hold off on this for a little bit, unless it's really bad).
Is the jacket length too long?

Apologies in advanced, for not wearing shoes in these photos and the cuffs not being fixed to the proper length (causing some sag at the bottom).

What needs to be done and how would it be done?

Thanks!

Jacket is too big and the length is a touch too long. Trouser is snug in the seat and thigh. Getting rid of the wrinkles in back is done by lowering the back waistband to lift the back of the trouser

Two more pictures here (low quality too, but a little bit big to share here) : http://imgur.com/a/WsGPq. How does it fit?


The jacket looks like it was too big and you had the sides tapered but it looks too long.

do you think with a bit relaxed straight pants the length will look ok ?

Thanks Despos as always.

Can you elaborate on where the Jacket is too big?
I know I need to taper/shorten the sleeves and shorten it in length by a bit. What else needs to be adjusted in terms of the jacket?

So this Jacket arrived from Suitsupply today, and I wonder if I should go up a size or tailor it? I'm especially wondering about the shoulders, as I thought they would be the biggest problem, but ended up feeling quite ok. Over all, everything feels skin tight.




seems like I forgot to button the sleeve... Sorry about that...

Suitsupply is made with a slimmer cut. Is that a Sienna model? If so, the shoulders had the same little ripples for me in two different sizes.

It's the Italia cut, this one

What does the ripples indicate?

Possibly that the construction of your shoulder doesn't match the construction of the jacket. But I'm not expert at all, and this is just one picture.

if skin tight is what you want you got it.. but i think that most here would prefer a little looser and a little longer.

That actually looks pretty good to me. The shoulders are a bit too wide, and the jacket is a bit too short. The issue is how it feels. I own jackets that fit like that, but I can hardly feel them. If yours feels tight, then you may need to change it.
