post #2881 of 5092
I lost a bit of weight, and I have a rlbl suit that doesn't quite fit me like it used to. I lost weight all over and not in a particular place, so I need it slimmed down all over keeping the same proportions. I guess the same suit one size down would fit me perfect. Shoulders do still fit me. So I was wondering if this is a easy enough job for a competent tailor, or if I'm risking too much. How much would it cost? Would it be worth it to get it tailored?
Thanks.

hello everyone

I'm about to start a job that requires me to wear a suit again so I thought I get your views on 2 suits that I bought some time ago but haven't worn for a while. This one is a charcoal TM Lewin suit, I will shortly post pics of a navy pinstripe Suitsupply one.

With this one I always felt the trousers didn't quite fit me right but I'm lacking the knowledge to say what exactly it is






Anything worth changing / having altered before I start the job?

I dunno if it's my screen that's dark, but it's kinda hard to see the fit in those pictures.

trousairs are way to long IMHO, expecially being quite narrow and you quite tall. I'd shorten 'em up a inch,maybe even 1 and half ( you see the back of the shoe going out in the back is very strange)

Jacket fits you nicely.

Anyone care to comment on this trial jacket from Kent Wang? This is the beginning of the made-to-measure process; I was sent this trial jacket, and I'll have a MTM suit made based off adjustments to fit of the trial jacket (and pants of course too, but still waiting to receive those.) First set taken during the day with natural light, second set under artificial light. There's lots of wrinkling since the jacket is right out of the shipping box and unpressed.

Set 1:








Set 2:






Overall, I think it's a decent fit and I'm expecting good results with some minor adjustments to the final MTM product. Obviously sleeves need to be shortened a bit (and yes, my right arm is longer than my left). I'd appreciate any feedback from the tailor's in this thread on anything else that could be adjusted.

It is pretty hard to see the real fit of the jacket in the pictures.

 

Again, it is a matter of preference and taste.

 

However, I would certainly not shorten those trousers.

Thank you tailors for any critique that you can provide for me. I recently started a job, and I just like Flyswatter got a suit from Kent Wang. This is a trial suit in which I need to provide the corrections for the final product. Previously before visiting Styleforum, I would have assumed everything looked good. After check out this thread, I realize there are few parts of the suit that do not fit me perfectly.

 

I was hoping that any of you would help me identify the parts that do not fit correctly, and what I need to tell my tailor and then Kent to get the final suit as close to perfect as possible.

 

First off, I have to say the suit is an amazing quality for the price. Please disregard the shirt. It is a cheap RTW that does not fit properly. My test shirt from Luxire should be coming soon!

 

 

In the first picture, I can see that sleeves look a bit long. (Sorry about the no shoes!)

 

 

The second picture I can see collar gaping near the chest area. What should I do correct this issue? Also it seems like the button point shows the suit to be too tight. Is that due to the chest material not being enough? I feel that I should take it in for a better shape for the suit.

 

 

Left side seems pretty good. There seems to be some wrinkles on the triceps. Does that need to be altered?

 

In this picture, it seems the right arm's pitch needs to be adjust to go more left of the picture.

 

In this picture, I see a lot of wrinkles, but I do not know how to get rid of them.

 

 

This picture shows the neck rolls better. Does the collar needed to be elevated?

 

 

A better picture of the collar gap and lapels gap. What needs to be done to fix this?

 

 

 

The pants also seem to be pulling.

 

 

 

I was thinking to better balance the suit the button point needs to be decreased by a inch and waist taken in a little. I still want to keep the flair of the bottom of skirt. Does that look better or should I keep it as is? If it looks better, how should I ask so the skirt still flairs but the waist and button point are altered?

 

 

 

Sorry for all the questions! 

 

Thank you all for your time and expertise. I really appreciate any critique.

Thanks





I didn't get a reply on this, so I thought I'd ask again. Here's a new pic of the suit, since one of my pants legs isn't hanging down correctly.

caseyfud: Yes, shorten the trousers and also shorten the sleeves to show a bit of shirt cuff. Otherwise, looks pretty good.

Also, the jacket is cut longer than most DB jackets; what do you guys think? Take the plunge, or avoid?



Bump; any thoughts?

othertravel: Not with that picture and pose.

your jacket's back is a little bit loose for you

Dunno... I mean is a quite skinny suit, you can't have that effect that you clearly see in the frontal pics, there is too much material there. 

You can like it that doesnt' touch the shoe at all as I do (but is extreme I give you that) ,you can like it on the hedge between touching or not or even with shoe touched a bit.... in that pic he's standing and the trousairs are litterally laying on the shoe ...

 

I mean the guy seem to be young not 60, young people don't wear skinny suits with trousairs like that...
