Thanks for all the help and feedback in this thread, Just reading through it helps me learn about various issues/fixes smile.gif

I feel like this jacket fits me pretty well, but I seem to have some collar gap at the back of the neck that is fairly noticeable most of the time. It also feels like it is sitting low on my collar. Do you see anything that could be causing the collar gap? Any other suggestions?

That's an awesome jacket. Tom Ford?

Is the Milano Fit a drop 8 or 7? I have an issue with Zegna Drop 8 jackets. The fit nicely on the waist, but got shoulder divots, I have to size up. Does the shoulder divot is becuase you moved your arm or it is that "prominent"?

It's a drop 7. It's not prominent from the front or back.

Oh I see. I'm no expert, but the back looks a bit messy. Do you have forward shifted shoulders? I ask, because I have a similar problem when I try a lot of RTW jackets, Zegna 44 have worked for me well.

Thank you OTCtailor!  Also the skirt of the jacket seems to flare a bit. How can I keep it from flaring out? Take in the hips?

Hi all,

 

Could I get a fit check on the below pictures? This is a London fit suit from SuitSupply, size 38R. Feels like a good fit to me and the front looks good, the cuffs are a touch short but I can live with that (the left sleeve is riding up a bit in the picture). My main issue is the creasing at the back, is there any way this could be fixed? Look forward to hearing your feedback!

Nice! I thought of TF becuase of the 5 sleeve buttons. The pattern is very cool.

It just needs to be taken in a little through each seam.

You can get the collar roll fixed. That would take care of a lot going on back there.

You mean the side seams, right? Would about 0.5" do it?

Hard to say and depends on the look you're looking for. If you want it nice and clean, there could be more involved than just adjusting the side seams. Messing with the CB seam can be tricky but a good tailor can do it right. It'll pull a lot of the vertical fullness out so that adjusting the side seams won't make them overworked. You could possibly even suppress the underarm dart a little to give some shape to the front.

If you aren't looking for super clean, just have the sides taken in a little..possibly up through the blades (which is a little more $$) Suppress the underarm dart as well. If you're not confident with your tailor, this is the way to go. (up through the blades is a tricky task as well)

I would also recommend you get the sleeves lengthened. Even though you said the left is riding a little, they are rather short by at least .5" each side. Suit supply tends to make the cuffs working from the gate so good luck with that. Depending on how they're sewn, you may still be able to shorten/lengthen them.

Thanks for your feedback! I think what I will do is see if I can exchange for a 38L which is not only 1" longer in the sleeves and 1.2" longer in length but also has a smaller chest and waist measurement. I am not particularly confident in my tailor's abilities so I think this would be the best option.

Thank you OTCTailor.  I'm itching to get back home so that I can double check all of these things.  Unfortunately it will then be well and truly too late to do anything about any shortcomings in time for the event it's intended for.  At least I have some direction now for the tailor.
