Thanks much.



Anyone? Not trying to be annoying, just hoping for some help smile.gif

Thanks

Hello tailors.

 

Looking on your thoughts on this fit -  I bought this zegna suit but they did a horrible job at the time.  I left it for 2 or so years in the closet and took it back to them and this time they did a better job, also adding some decent wait suppression.  But this is in my opinion, what do you think? 

 

Tried to do the best with photos but they are only adequate, sorry for that.  I upped brightness & contrast a bit...

 

Oh and excuse the crappy shoes.

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.

Short front balance causes the fronts to hike up and pull away from your body at the hem. The left may do so more if you have a low right shoulder. Would taper the trouser leg but not at the bottom, just shorten. Doesn't appear to have harmony, the line of the jacket with the trouser but can't point out why.

Thanks for your thoughts.

The first suit looked better than the 3rd. I wouldn't order from them again. Doesn't work for you.

Backing buttons, rules for when they should be there or when they are unessecary?

Helps to reduce the stress on the buttons and adds support to the cloth so there is less risk of the cloth being damaged. Just wise to use the backing buttons, no rule there.

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?

Can't tell about the length from these pictures.
Don't narrow the shoulder. the jacket needs definition at the waist. If the shoulder were more narrow and with the straight line of the torso you will appear A shaped. Not flattering.

Thanks, will see how it looks once I get the trousers sorted.

Bad for your skin, health, and body temperature.

 

I believe it is a wool/mohair blend....supposedly full canvassed (can definitely feel a third layer in the lapels) yet the front fabric is noticable thicker that sleeves on pinch test.

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?

This looks like the right size for you. maybe take in the back a little to clean up the blades and add a little shape. Trousers need more work than the jacket. They may be too snug in the thigh.

jacket pictures are too dark to see anything. Trousers could use some shape to the leg and lift the back part to get rid of the wrinkles under the seat.

Shirt could be tapered and the sleeves shorten. Have this one altered before ordering others to see if you like and are happy with the adjustments.

Visit a tailor or two and let them see the suit on you and ask if this is the right size for you. Tell them how you want the suit to look and see what they would suggest.

Nice vintage jacket. Start with shortening the sleeves. The back balance is long and causes the wrinkles on the lower back, could be a bit snug on the hip. You may or may not want to fool with that. Depends on your tailor and the cost.

The pictures look a bit distorted in how trim the lower parts of the jacket, waist and hips, compared to the chest. Have you tried other makers in this size to compare the look and proportion?

shorten the sleeves to the break where your wrist and hand meet. You want to see some shirt cuff.

Thanks for the reply!

I haven't had a chance to try much else yet. This is really my first foray into suiting and the like. I'm not sure if the angle my girlfriend took the pictures at led to the lower part looking odd, the vents are also closed. Does the upper part of the jacket look ok? Or what areas should I look for improvement? Sorry for such basic questions shog[1].gif

I sincerely appreciate the help.
