post #2131 of 5101

I would appreciate opinions on the fit of this sport coat, and if there are any glaring issues. It's an OTR 38R with no alterations. This is the first jacket I've ever tried that I liked the fit of immediately. It's very comfortable with how it rests on my shoulders/upper chest. I don't like the amount of flare in the vent and I'm unsure about arm length. Otherwise I like it. My body shape is somewhat unusual including a measurable amount of spine curvature.

 

Thank you very much for your words.

I have a couple pairs of Mabitex that have some break in the back around mid-hamstring area. My tailor is quite skilled and I trust her but what is involved in fixing this problem?

post #2133 of 5101
^From my experience (I talked to Despos about the same thing), that would require decreasing the back rise and maybe deepening the seat. It's done from the waistline and likely also requires opening of the side seams on each leg to balance everything out.

That sounds like major surgery. Thanks for the info.

The poster needs to fix the gaping center vent plus a few other tweaks. But I am willing to bet money that if this guy was in pretty much every office in the world he would be just fine. Common folks won't know a thing about shoulder to waist proportions They won't catch the way the sleeve drapes. Length is a huge debate here too, and to me is a personal preference. Indochino is not going to be able to incorporate tweaks for a low shoulder or prominent shoulder blade. It is a $400 suit, not $4,000.
So to the poster you really have two options in my mind....go back to indochino with these super specific obsersations and see what they can do about it (but don't hold your breath), or you can take it to a local tailor who can look at more than 4 pictures and suggest changes. Maybe even go to a few tailors, compare what they say. If you are mostly happy with this then have them make the adjustments and submit for a credit. Getting a remake could open up a new can of worms.
Free comment, so you get what you pay for. Good luck.

as to thecritique of member jbernard.
our member friend asked for a "CRITIQUE".
thats just exactly what he got.
we do the best we can, given good or bad pictures.
it comes from what we have experienced and we say it the way it is.
the customer can do what he wishes with that information.

everyone here by now should know that a M2M garment ordered
on the web is a crap shoot.
one can get either a great garment or a piece of garbage.
or can get something some where in between.

i agree jbernards prominent blades cant be taken care for by a
m2m shop. but the critique requires it be mentioned.
but the low shoulder is required even by m2m standards.
there is no special tailors needed for this. it is done on the cutting table!
any m2m shop that cannot cut a low shoulder, should not be in business.

just my opinion.

is it possible to take the extra fabric from a cuff and use it to convert a pant with belt loops into one with side tabs?

post #2137 of 5101

can anyone help me with the fit of my suit? (previous page, page 142) any opinion would be much appreciated!

I ordered a 3 piece suit and shirt from Black Lapel and would appreciate any feedback on the fit of these items (new to the suit-owner world). So far I am thinking the pants need to be bigger in the thighs. The vest could be a little smaller around the stomach. The suit could be a tiny bit smaller in the shoulders and the sleeves on my shirt should be a little longer. For those looking to help, I wanted a more European fit suit, but not quite as tight pants as I received. Thanks for the help!

There are a bunch of obvious problems, (neck measurement is real off, gaping vents, etc.). Planning on a remake, any suggestions?

I've a 6x2 double-breasted sport coat I love. Its a bit loose (but not at all unacceptably so) in the waist and slightly too tight slong the hips, where it buttons. There is noticeable pulling. What are my options?
post #2141 of 5101
Hi - I'd love some feedback on this suit. I got this Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald Golden Fleece from Rue La La earlier in the month. In July I posted a similar suit in 42L (post). The opinion here was a resounding "too big". So this one is a 40L (I'm 6'2" 175). Looking for feedback on the fit - no alterations have been done so it's still completely returnable. The obvious changes are sleeves up, hem pants, and maybe bring the sides in a little.

I'm also concerned about a slight fabric roll on one of the front shoulders (seen in blue box). It isn't as noticeable in the picture as in person. This roll is there even when the jacket is on the hanger. Wasn't sure if this was something that's easily pressed out (possibly happened in shipping) or if it's an indication of how it ended up at Rue La La.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Also, is this coat appropriate to wear over this blazer?

I still am definitly going to slim the pants I look horrible from the side, the waist supression should help also

final question is it possible to take extra material from under the hem and make side tab adjusters? if so how expensive would it be?
