I will ask in another store. The amount of tailors in Mexico is very poor. Thanks!

across the back at the blade level there is some excess width to take in.
lower back at the butt you need a bout 1" more width.
you have a right low shoulder that can be adjusted for on the cutting table.
for info on the low shoulder see the tutorials.
the extreme narrow trouser bottoms are making your feet appear
to be much very larger than they really are.

 

Thank you so much for your feedback, a tailor. I made my suit overseas and will not be able to send it back to the tailor for any further alterations.

 

Hence, I will only be able to send it in to some reputable tailor in my country for alterations. Based on the pictures, do you think there is room for my suit to be further altered for a more open quarter? Read in one of the entries in this forum that changes to the quarters are quite risky due to the location of the 2nd button. Would like to have a second opinion on this before I even consider making further alterations to the quarters.

 

Thanks in advance!

Got this blazer from a third world country. My dad went there and he just gave them my measurements. How does it fit? I will shorten the sleeves but is everything else okay? I actually wouldn't like it to be any longer actually. Maybe that's not classic but oh well it suites my tastes.

Sorry for the poor stance, bad cell phone quality, and the shirt under the coat. The shoulders fit me very well actually...I think my stance in the picture might make it look otherwise.

Suppress the waist.

There are a bunch of obvious problems, (neck measurement is real off, gaping vents, etc.). Planning on a remake, any suggestions?
Don't mean to be a pest, but any critique?

Jacket seems a bit short. And I don't know if it's just the angle, but the torso seems a bit snug...not flattering (but it could be the angle).

Since the bottom button is in the way, it keeps the opening of the quarters to a minimum.
there is a way to gain a 1/4" a inch in the buttonhole area. that allows a little more curve change.
this assumes a tailor that can turn the front edge by hand.

Yes, the waist seemed fine to me, already slim in fact. What should I get altered though? I will be shortening the sleeves but is there a guideline as to how many inches of the shirt should show when standing with arms down?

It looks like it's falling straight down. Like a bag.

Hi A Tailor, thanks once again for your advice! Really appreciate it. However, I don't really get what you meant by "a tailor that can turn the front edge by hand". Could you elaborate more?

 

I was thinking of shedding some cloth off the quarters of my jacket (marked in yellow in the picture below) to open up my quarters slightly.

Do you recommend this move in opening up my quarters? Or would you recommend alterations to the other parts of the suit to achieve the open quarters? Will this cause my jacket to look weird or out of proportion? Pardon me for asking so much, I am very new to all these.

 

Thank you once again!

What a great thread!

post #2173 of 5187

Long time lurker here and my first post!  Thanks for everyone providing advice.  I've learned so much from this thread.

 

2 bespoke suits from a local tailor.  Please click to enlarge.

 

Navy birdseye.

Thank you for any feedback you could provide!

Posted this in the "forward shoulders" thread, but that one sinks fast. Not sure if this problem has to do with my shoulders being indeed forward. The jacket also seems to fit better if I make the top part of the back about two inches smaller by pinning it. Fits better, but not well anyways.

 

The armholes are also hideously low - do you think that might have anything to do with this too?

Please excuse the poor picture quality - hopefully this is a quickly recognizable problem and you can see what I mean. Thanks.

I'm would like to see the tailors response to this, cause I have two jackets with this kinda of problem.

 

Saludos hasta Madrid!
