Do you recommend reducing the yoke measurement and/or shoulders?

Some of my MTM shirts get this diagonal creases running from the armpit through the chest (As seen on the photo). The other parts of the shirt fits clean to the body. Does anybody know what may cause this? How may it be fixed for future orders?

Are these made using your measurements or were you measured by someone?

It is a combination of shoulder slope, your shoulders slope more than the shirt is cut for and they pitch forward. The first button from the collar band and where it is placed, the way the neck run is positioned on you, the width across the chest at the middle of the armhole and at the bottom of the armhole. Shirt looks like it has no proportion of one element to another.

This is a difficult thing to correct. It is partly the fit, the cut, and the make. Both shoulders need to be recut and remade. Hard to tell conclusively from the picture but it is common to square the shoulder, shift the front shoulder, make it straighter, add a bit of fullness on the back shoulder and maybe let out the center back seam at the neck a bit. Resize the collar if necessary. It is major work and not always successful. Jacket looks fused and that doesn't help things.

I was measured. I want to make clear that the photo is not of me, I just recognized the creases pictured and jumped on the opportunity to ask. My shirt fit clean, except for the mentioned creases.
So is proportion between the elements you mention the only thing that can cause this? THank you in advance.
post #307 of 5335
The proportion comment was a generalization and all the comments that precede it, contribute to the issue. All those things may need to be adjusted to correct the fit or only a few or a combination of. If that isn't you shirt on your body the answer may be different.

I just received a new blazer and a pair of pants in the mail today. I'm planning on taking them to the tailor on Tuesday for fitting, but first would like to ask for some input on what I should get done.

Blazer:
I plan to get the arms and jacket shortened. My questions are:
1. How much should I get them shortened?
2. Should I get the jacket taken in a bit at the waist, as I feel it is flaring out a bit just above the pockets?
3. Should I get anything else altered

Pants:
I plan to get it shortened. My questions are:
1. Do you think I should get them tapered a bit?
2. Should I get anything else altered?

Please note that one of my shoulders is indeed slightly higher than my other due to an injury earlier this year.

Thanks so much in advance guys.

PS: sorry in advance about the creases. I just noticed them after the pics were taken.

RTW shirt that I plan on tweaking for ordering a MTM shirt. Will reducing the shoulder/yoke and arm opening measurements help?

Hello gentlemen!

 

I recently purchased a J. Crew cotton suit while they were running a sale. I would like your opinion on if the coat seems to fit my body (I think it might be too tight), and then what can be done to improve the suit. Also I feel concern about the shoulders, as they are one of the most important aspects of it.

 

Let me start off by making a few quick points.

1. I generally feel the J. Crew Ludlow suit flatters me, I have a linen blazer in it that has served me well.

2. Right off the bat I know I'll be trimming the length of the pants, I got size 32 length to err on the side of it not being too short.

3. The photos are the best the photographer could get after about 50 photos, the photographer is good at many things, but unfortunately not using an iPhone camera. If these photos don't provide enough information, please accept my apologies and I will post more as soon as possible.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

I'm taking this in for alterations. Please give me some suggestions on improving the fit.

Dear tailoring mavens,
Thank you for running this brilliant thread! I recently thrifted this linen blazer with almost horizontal lapels:

Could a tailor lift the points of the lapels upwards, like in this infantile drawing?

If so, how difficult is that? Thank you in advance!

It's not difficult, it's impossible.

Just shorten the sleeves and hem the trouser. Don't do anything to the waist on the jacket
