Doesn't necessarily make the jacket too tight.
Also, the tailor could've taken in thru the armholes to decrease the amount of fabric at the back of the armhole. As a matter of fact, he could've suppressed the jacket by manipulating the side seams in a way that suppressed the back/waist while also decreasing the width of the vents...without touching the center back seam. If you need more suppression beyond that, you can have the tailor add a dart right behind the underarm dart which falls under the arm nearly invisible but helps to suppress the front of the jacket to give you more shape.

Here are some side pictures. I am going to to the tailor soon. What should I tell him? To take in the jacket some more behind the armholes, and what more? smile.gif

I didn't realize there was a thread specifically for fit feedback, so I created thread for checking the fit on a new suit. So I guess I should post it here instead.

 

I received this suit last week in the mail. I noticed that there's bunching under the neck in the back, and the pants are a bit long. Can the bunching in the neck be resolved with some alterations? Any other issues that stand out that should be fixed? Or would I be better of returning the suit and finding something else?

 

Thanks for the feedback!

2nd fitting on sample fabric at Iris Tailor, Singapore. Thoughts? I think maybe the shoulder could be lengthened and the arms taken in a bit.

 

Apologies for the poor picture quality. Just to point out, the length on the front is not uneven, it just appears so.

Ok it looks a little overshaped in the back. I'd let it out in the waist of the back part of the jacket only if possible. You said the jacket is still quite roomy in the front? Maybe letting out at the back part of the waist and taking in at the front part can fix that. I can't imagine it would need much.

The shoulders need to be squared to shorten the back balance. That will fix the neck roll. The pants are definitely too long. If the suit came from a company that offers an alterations credit, that should cover those fixes.

Not too bad for off the rack. The jacket could probably benefit from lowering the collar or potentially squaring the shoulders. Everything else looks pretty good.

Awesome thread,  I will be adding pics shortly! :)

jacket fits very close, you can't go any smaller. The little bit of fullness under the collar on the back is from tension across your shoulder blades. You need a little more back width and the most effective but most difficult way to correct this is to remake the shoulders with more fullness on the back shoulder to accommodate your blades. Wouldn't lower the collar as the collar run looks right. Could diagnose more accurately with a collared dress shirt.

...looks more like tightness in the shoulders than a lower-the-collar fix to me.

I was thinking that after I posted and took a second look. Have PM'd the guy esp after reading Despos' post reply. 

That's why there's more than one tailor in the thread. We all see things a little differently, all have different levels of experience, and ultimately every client or poster in this forum's case is going to have their preference. I'm perfectly willing to acknowledge that I'm not always right and that a tailor with perhaps decades more experience just may have a little more insight satisfied.gif

Hey experts, I don't mean to be pushy, but just in case you missed my request (as opposed to just not having time for it yet), I submitted this a couple of days ago:  http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions/2655#post_6067451

 

Again, if you've seen it but just haven't had time, I apologize.

disregard the tie and shirt. i wasn't home and hand to use a random button up shirt and a very bad tie. i noticed some collar gap, shoulders may be long, and i'm thinking it should maybe be a touch longer. opinions?

Yup. Also, too tight in the chest and (almost unavoidable) the sleeves are too long. The jacket might be short, but that's probably just the jeans being worn low.

Whats up guys?

 

I want to thank everyone who modeled their suits and especially thank the tailors.  This thread taught me so much and is the most valuable source of information i found on suiting across the internet. 

 

I heard the word "silhouette" thrown around here and there but i never quite grasped what it meant until i saw this gentleman's jacket:

 

Now I understand the silhouette, the lines, the balance and drape of a suit.  I want a jacket that fits like that. 

 

That beings said I just bought a jacket that fits nothing like the above.  Its a Brooks Brothers, 1818, Regent fit, 39R.  I don't know what the problem is but the fit seems generally out of balance to me.  Here some pictures:

 

 

 

 

 

>>>>>>>>Below Are all pictures with the jacket open<<<<<<<<<<<<

 

 

 

 

 

So can i get a good fit in this jacket or should I return it and look for something else?  Thank You!
