post #2326 of 5198

Hello, I'm new to the forum and was looking for feedback on some MTM suits that I got from Black Friday.   I read all I could about fit before I gave MTM a shot and I am hoping that I'm not way off.  Any feedback would be welcome, thanks!

 

 

This one is from Thick as Thieves:

This one is a 36S JCrew Ludlow Fit, I have not hemmed the pants or adjusted the sleeves yet, wanted to ensure it fits well first.

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!

on the trousers its one of two things. and your tailor needs to decide which os two things to do.
to let out the thigh fork. or scoop out the seat. hard to explain..
i may do a tutorial on that.

Hello, Had the first fitting for a 3 piece suit and would be great if I could get some feedback prior to the next fitting.

Hello, I'm seeking advice from the tailors in this forum on what can be done to clean up the wrinkles my jacket has around the shoulder blades / arm holes. The sleeve pitch needs to be adjusted a little to get rid of the wrinkles on the sleeves but what should I ask my tailor to do to get rid of the wrinkles at the back of the shoulders? There is also a fold of fabric in front of the armhole. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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...

9" is ok, unless you are a very tall person.
stay with the regular 3 button, it seldom works well.

Where are the "tutorials" exactly on this site?

Thanks again!  At 5'7" I'm the opposite of a tall person... lol8[1].gif

Sorry for bothering you so much lately but here's the outcome of my latest MTM jacket after shifting the shoulders:

The shoulders are now located where they should be (they didn't account for my low shoulder, though), and I don't want to have this jacket altered any more, just in case it gets messed up; I'm rather happy with the outcome. But for future commissions I'd like to play with measurements to make the jacket more flattering, so it would be interesting to know if there's something I can do to make the hips appear less wide. My tailor is pretty good at cutting and sewing but he doesn't seem to be that good of a fitter. As you can see, my right deltoid is protruding a bit from the sleeve; that way you can see the actual shape of my shoulders, and I'm wondering if you can see room there for extending them a bit  (maybe half, or 3/4 of an inch) without looking awkward? Perhaps they would need to have a bit more slope as well.

 

Thanks!

I've had this John Varvatos oiled suede blazer for awhile now but never knew what this strap on the inside is for. The strap goes from the top of the inside right armhole across to the bottom of the inside left armhole.  Can someone enlighten me?

My guess is that it allows you to sling the jacket over your shoulder like a satchel if it gets too warm so you don't have to carry it. But that's just a guess.

Thanks Despos, my apologies for the slow response, but I'm finally back with some brighter photos. See below for the edited images.

That makes sense, it's just weird I had never seen such a thing nor heard of it. Thanks for the input.

Hi,

I recently bought a Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald, which has a narrower shoulder width than my usual jackets.
However, this jacket also happens to have more minimal padding than my other jackets.
I am very surprised that it still fits me as well.

Can someone help me figure out whether the shoulders of this suit are not well suited for me?

I've included a picture of me in the jacket, if anyone could take a look and critique, would be appreciated.

Sleeves are too short and will have to be lengthened.

Picture LOOKS OFF because my friend took it while he was sitting down.

Thanks.

Shoulders look fine to me. You need a size Long.
