post #2926 of 5199
Hi all,

Just got my suit back from the guys at Pal Zileri. It's from their Abito Privato line, and is three button. Was skeptical at first about having a three button suit, and would like to have your input on the fit and style of it. I'm 6"1, so the overall fit isn't very zoot-suity, even though it's three button.

just got all these back from the tailor...

cross post from thrift thead would like feeback...

 

so I haven't done a real thrift fit in a while and I wanted to give you an update on the stuff I brought to the tailor...

southwick suit I bought a while back from someone on here (sorry I can't remember)

shirt is mtm tie is no name pin up thrifted by me shoes are alden thrifted by me shirt online mtm

I lengthened the sleeves slimmed them, nipped the waist and tapered the pants to a 7.75 opening (wish I had gone with 8...)

the thing I like most about this suit is the slightly extended soft shoulders and the long jacket as well as the slightly lower button stance (also forgive the no socks I had to hurry to get these pics before basketball...) also forgive the incredibly boring and trad styling I just went with basics as I was in a rush...

Current concerns:

  2. The back seems a bit long, although maybe not?
  3. The left side of my collar won't stay down and the tab button underneath keeps showing. Is that an issue with the collar or do I just need to iron it?
  4. Sleeves look overly contorted with wrinkles, although I know the length is about right.
  5. Neck feels normal but is super difficult to button, but I'm afraid I shouldn't increase the size.


And of course I'll take any feedback on clothes, but definitely need help with shirt so I can alter measurements to get my next shirt more comfortable.

I'll echo what everyone else already has....this shirt is too tight, indeed.

Hard to tell from the pictures but the description of "riding up" seems to indicate that the back crotch curve is not low enough for a possibly low seat. The fix, if that is the problem, is scooping out the seat.

thanks

Looks like the point to point is a little small for the broadness of your shoulders. Looks like you're going for a euro-esque fit but the narrow shoulder spread is causing the lapels to gape slightly.

I'd go with darts to put shape right where it needs to go which is your lower back. Think of how a suit works...there are several seams on a jacket that give it shape. A sack suit lacks front darts so it won't really have the same chest shape as one with darts. A dress shirt has only two seams. Only so much shaping ability with just two seams. You have a curve to your lower back from your shoulders down. Some would call it sway back. You can get darts put in the shirt almost right behind the side seams so they're not so visible from the back.

(1) Can this be tailored to create the nice line and how?

(2) what is the proper way to ensure a nice line when trousers are made.

 

Thanks
 

What it seems you're describing can result from several different factors. OTR trousers have a longer back rise to accommodate for a variety of butt shapes. The bunching usually occurs from a low seat, flat seat, or with posterior pelvic tilt. It's basically shoving all the material hanging in the back rise down below your seat. The fix could be several things at once but most often it's lowering the back rise, scooping out the seat, and possibly taking in the stride.

Thanks for the input.  Do you think I'd need to change the measurement at the waist/hips to accommodate them?  Or can I just keep the measurement profile the same and add darts?  I'm going to ask them to remake this shirt and I'll need to provide new measurements.

 

Any comments on the fit elsewhere, or do you agree with my assessment that it's just too tight in the chest and shoulders?

I ordered a couple MTM shirt online utilizing measurements from a well fitting shirt.  My main issue, as you can see from the pics, is the extra fabric between the collar and shoulders.  I know the pic's are not great, but any suggestions on how to rectify this issue would be most appreciated.  Also, if you have comments on anything else you see as far as the fit is concerned please let me know.  I am a big fan of finally having some clothing that fit better than OTR, and think I'm very close to having some excellent shirts!  Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

 

Measurements in inches-

Collar: 15.75

Half Chest: 20.88

Half Waist: 18.25 (thinking this may be a bit to snug compared to chest)

Half Hip: 20

Sleeve: 24.75

Half Bicep: 7

Cuff: 8.5

Yoke: 17

Shoulder: 5.5

*Also going to add a bit on the arm holes as they are a bit snug.

I wonder if it's like the pesky neck roll in a jacket...which is caused by excessive slope in the shoulder line of the jacket. In this case, it looks like the cloth is collapsing at the neck. Maybe the shoulder line of the shirt is too sloped. Hard to tell. Measurements don't really tell the whole story

Getting a good jacket fit with a prominent seat definitely requires the hand of a skilled tailor. That'll be a challenge with this jacket. Also, very erect back posture looks like the back balance may be a bit long. Pants obviously need to be hemmed and possibly taken in a little in the stride.

I've had this issue for a long time. I'll try foam rolling and see where that gets me. Thank you, bmathe02. I did not anticipate a medical diagnosis when I created this post, haha.

You're dealing with what looks like extreme erect back posture, anterior pelvic tilt, prominent stomach and seat. Along with muscular build, very intense mixture for decent tailoring...

Go MTM or custom or good luck!

Proportions look a little short...sleeves and jacket length too short for your height.

Back at it again this time with a Midnight Blue Tuxedo




Feedback would be great thank you!
post #2940 of 5199

I'm planning on ordering my first custom shirt from an online maker, and figured I would use my only good dress shirt for a baseline. Please tell me how the shirt should be altered and feel free to request additional info. I also would like to know if the shoulder seems are correctly placed on this shirt, and if the back seam should come so far forward. Thank you
