The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions - Page 155

You've asked a question which is unanswerable by any of us. Feel at the cuff to see if there's extra material. If there is, and it's sufficient for your needs, take it to the tailor. If not, don't keep the coat.

you might send these photos and point out the excess cloth at the shoulder blades near the armholes.
there is a need for a photo of the trouser back.


Thanks so much for the feedback a tailor. You're totally right about my shoulder and it seems so obvious now that you've pointed it out. If I slump my right shoulder to compensate the collars stack nicely. I had my roommate take a couple more pictures.

The collar gapping is much more obvious now. They will remake it if the necessary alterations can't be done by a local tailor. What would you suggest about the pulling effect at the button? I followed the tutorials and my left shoulder is 1/4" lower, and my left hip is 1/2" higher.

 

 

Also what needs to change about the pants? It seems like the crotch just isn't low enough. Thanks so much!

Hi Tailors,

 

Just got a new suit.  Please can you comment on the fit, particularly on the shoulders, chest, and backside jacket.  I would like to accurately describe to my alterations tailor what needs to be done to make it better.

 

Thank you.

Brethren,

This thread seemed like the right place for this question. I just bought a Woolrich Yankton jacket (essentially a Harrington copy). I really like it, but the sleeves are a little long and a little baggier than I expected. Could the sleeves be tapered and taken up, or does the cuff and sleeve lining make it impossible?

The jacket fits perfectly everywhere else; I just have unusually long arms (35" shirt sleeve).
If a fit pit is needed, I'll post one on request. Thanks!

the distance between the bottom of the sleeve and the stitching
that jouns the lining to the coat fabric is the length you will gain.
the tailor will find some fabric a close match to the coat.
he will add that to the inside of the sleeve and make ith high
enough to meet the lining.

Thanks a tailor.

 

I have another quick question, what's the minimum acceptable distance from the hem of a jacket to the side pockets? (without flaps). My father just gave me an old sport coat from the eighties that is going to need extensive alterations (though it's my size, the 80's cut makes it look huge) and it's a bit long. The distance from the hem to the pockets is 10" and I'm wondering if 9" is acceptable. If not I may not even bother taking it to the tailor...

 

Also wondering if it's possible to turn a true 3 button coat into a 3-roll-2 if it's fused, because this thing would look much better that way...

you should really do something about your hair. have you tried a conditioner?
it would soften your countenance, much like the sweet face.we know as SUGAR BUTCH.

yes the sleeves can be shortened.do not narrow the sleeves.
when sleeves are too long it makes them seem too big.
you can always narrow them later.

Not sure where else to post this, but one of my shirts tore at the bottom of my left sleeve where the crease forms. Is this repairable or is it done for good?

a local tailor can run a stitch and close it up.
wont be perfect. you will notice it when you are at the computer.
but is anyone else staring at your forearms?

Sounds good -- I thought that would be the case.

Thanks.

Thank you very much. I didn't wear the belt when the photo is taken i think that's why pants look a bit long. For pressing, yes definitely will ask to my tailor to press it.
