I got my first tailored suit in October - I got it made in Hong Kong by Sammys Tailor on Mody Road. Any comments about the fit?
PS: Shirt is also tailormade - any comments on that too?
So, got a new suit and had a play around in the studio after I had finished with my other work....excuse the crappy lighting. I've upped the exposure to make the details stand out.
Obviously the pants are too long. I have yet to sew on suspender buttons so they are a bit low as well.
Not 100% about the quarters, the left side seems to stick out a tiny bit instead of lying flat...the suit also feels fairly stiff. Could this be something that will soften up with body heat and conform to my shape a little better or is that being a little optimistic.
Would very much appreciate some feedback.
What are the fibers of the suit? it does not seem to be hanging correctly on you. unless the suit is all natural I wouldn't count on it loosening up with body heat. many of the suits today that are marketed as "wrinkle resistant" actually are coated with a sprayed on then baked on plastic. Bad for your skin, health, and body temperature.
a tailor: Thanks for the comments - this point I didn't even notice Seems like the rest is fitting pretty well right? Personally I wouldn't mind that the sleeves on jacket was cut a little slimmer.
Have a fairly old BB jacket, which appears to have been a part of a suit, given to me by a family member. Must be > 30 years old. (The appearance of the old label is interesting, included a pic just for the heck of it.) Am curious about opinions on fit, and if alterations would even be possible / worth it to address any areas of deficiencies in fit. To me it appears somewhat too small, with some bunching in the back, though from the front not much bunching, sleeves are a bit too long, and jacket length is slightly too long. My thanks in advance.
Edit: images are in next post, my apologies
