Isn't the pulling shown in the picture (where the button is)?

Tailors, is that a good button stance for a one-button coat?

Do you find it too high? Or low?

Edit: Nvm, found out it's not possible to tell if a fully-lined jacket can be let out without going to a tailor.

A visual confirmation is best but you can sometimes feel the outlet thru the cloth and lining layers and know how much outlet exists.

Aside from feeling, I presume a tailor would carefully cut open one side of the lining to inspect it?

No, they would open the lining at the hem and look inside to see what outlets are there. Then he would let the jacket seams out or resew the lining and return the jacket to you.

Since all the tailors are patrolling this thread a lot, I just wanted to ask you all something. Talking to many tailors here in Korea, the trade you are in makes it very difficult to find time to make your own suits. So, do you ever buy any suit, jacket or trousers off-the-rack?
post #2064 of 5094
Have only had one RTW suit in my lifetime and it was purchased when i was 13 or 14. Have not owned any RTW trousers except jeans since that age. Would occasionally buy a casual shirt but I wouldn't wear them due to the fit being uncomfortable.
Never thought about this before.

What's the reason my coat is pulling, and why there's a small collar gap (not shown in the picture)

Do you think it's unreasonable to ask my tailor to rectify these problems?

 

*Please pardon the stages of undress

 

Please also don't mind the trousers (They're cut for braces and I wasn't really concerned about having them pulled up, since the focus is supposed to be on the coat).

I need some insight on this blazer. Do you think it fit right on the shoulder?

These pictures don't reveal much to diagnose from. Shoulder looks a bit wide. The jacket is shifted to your left side or the trouser is shifted to your right side. You have a low right shoulder but are also low on the right side at the neck. Would guess if you unbutton the jacket the right side will hang longer than the left side. The overlap at the front button seems skimpy. The back may be a bit short and front long concerning the jacket balance.All this is contributing to the pulling on the button. Don't really se a collar gap.
You probably have a right high hip and that is causing pulling on the right trouser leg.

Looks fine, why do you ask?

you have a right low shoulder and a higher/ wider right hip.
thats causing this. on a ready to wear garment the solutions are limited.
if the lower right side has cloth allowance in side, then that will work.
the shoulder is different, you can pad up the shoulder.
but that often leads to more complications at the collar..
re cutting the shoulder lower can be chancy and also expensive.
talk it over with your tailor.

I thought it might be a bit short. I owe you the photo of the suit that I think fits me the best. I'm wearing it today, so later I'll take the pic and maybe upload it tomorrow, for your insight. Thanks!
