I have never had a peak lapel with the stitching. What is the difference between mine and OTR peak lapels?
Right I get that. But I don't understand why a bespoke suit doesn't need it. Where an OTR suit does.
I am having some trouble with some side-tabs on some suit pants I have.The first picture shows the only way to get a little bit of hold. The second picture (the way they are suppose to hold) Doesn't hold at all. There is almost no effort at all needed to pull it apart. Anyway to make this better I very much like the look. And when they are initially holding it is great, I don't like having to constantly pull the tabs tighter. Thanks
I purchased this RLBL Tuxedo when I was a size 42. It cost $2k + and I only got to wear it once. After a lot of exercise I am now a 38.
I took the Suit to a highly recommended SF-approved tailor and after $500 for a total recut of the tux I am mostly happy with the result with the exception of one problem.
If you look at the photo's, you will see around the chest the suit does not sit properly. It is clearly evident in the photos.
The tailor says that this is simply the canvas rolling up under the fabric and apparently nothing he can do about it.
Can anyone here provide additional insight and/or possible solutions to this problem? I would really like to get this tux fitting right considering the money invested in it.
** Please note, it has a slight pull around the stomach. Please disregard, I requested the tailor do this because I still have a few kilos to shed.
The pants look good. And for once it seems they got the shoulders right the first time which is good news for you. I would get it remade as it looks like it needs an inch and a half out. And depending on how good your tailor is you will be able to see the old seem in certain light. If you are going for the modern, a little but of tug on the button, look you can probably get it taken out enough but there is the chance you will be able to see the old seam (I have never had this problem when I bought OTR suits, but a close friend has).
Also I can't say for sure. But your left sleeve may need to be shortened. It looks a little longer than your right sleeve, and it is bunched near the elbow. I think if it is strait and unbunched it may be too long.
Thanks. If I chose to remake the suit, which areas should I make adjustments on?
