post #2251 of 5276
Just purchased two sportcoats. Need some feedback as to which size I should keep. Ignore the shirt under. I just threw the jacket on top.

38




36

Hi all,

I posted earlier but only had a front shot of the jacket. Here are a few different angles of a size 36. I am very new to this so I was hoping to get some feedback as to whether I'm even in the ballpark with this jacket. Off the bat I know the sleeves would need to be shortened. Any suggestion/feedback helps.

Thanks much.

PS: Shirt is also tailormade - any comments on that too?








your right low shoulder is causing that gap by the collar on the right.
they did the right job lowering the shoulder but the coat collar needs
to be brought in c;loser to the shirt collar.

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.

An old blazer that I had lent to my brother. Will probably sell it, as it feels very wide in the shoulders. I assume, this can't be fix at moderate cost? Also, the coat is rather long. What do you think?

I bought a Suitsupply DB suit in 48 Short (24). The thing is that 46 would be too tight, 48 too long and 48 Short (24) too wide since it's wider than a regular 38, but since I'm not very tall (172cm) a regular 48 would be too long on the sleeves and with functional buttonholes it would just look weird since I would need to shorten the sleeves much. So I figured that a 48 Short (24) would be easiest to do alterations with.

I know it's too big now, but my question is if I should take it to the tailor or send it back.



I don't think it need that much alteration?


Also, the shape of the right shoulder on the suit is different than the left shoulder, and when I take a picture of me from the sides, with the arms hanging, you can see that the stance of the right shoulder is not correct, as it's extra fabric that creases, so there is something wrong with the suit?

New blazer and slacks for me - would love feedback on the fit of both items. Thanks in advance!

a tailor: Thanks for the comments - this point I didn't even notice shog[1].gif Seems like the rest is fitting pretty well right? Personally I wouldn't mind that the sleeves on jacket was cut a little slimmer.

Would like some feedback on my first attempted shirt from Luxire. (I know the pictures are terrible; best efforts at help will be appreciated.)

This thread is fantastic.

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
