post #3496 of 5056

Sorry to pollute the thread so much. But I pinned a little more off of the rear panel. Without messing with the fork, I think this is as good as we could get.. right OTC? I think messing with the fork is something that should be done in-person bespoke. Maybe one day I'll visit you and we can make a pair of pants to base everything off of.

 

Changes worked on:

 

Took the seat in (the rear seam) 1cm
Took in the hips .5cm each (for a total of 1cm on each side)
Raised the rear an entire 4cm
Lengthened the inseam 2.5cm (1")
Remove pleats.
 
We should probably lengthen the rear rise 1cm to not give me a wedgie. Can we put extra fabric in so I can let it out more if needed? I doubt it but maybe.
 
Left is after, obviously. Right is before.

A non-fit question, but a tailoring question nonetheless. There is a broken thread/stitch coming from the back seam of a cotton blazer I own, would I have any issues if i just snip it?

Hi guys,

 

Apologies for the not so great photos. I'm in the middle of moving and most of my stuff is packed up, so clothing/camera options are limited (the pants etc don't do it any favours).  What do you guys think needs to be done here? I got this quite cheaply on ebay, (60Aud, it's a pre-owned Canali in near perfect condition) so I'm not adverse to spending a fair bit on it. Thanks!

 

Edit: forgot to say, the shoulders past the end of my actual shoulders by 1/2 an inch.

Bump....sorry guys,

Luke, the Canali looks great. You just might want to let it out a bit along the sides; there's some pulling. Shoulders look fine imo.

Hi guys,

Firstly I would like to apologize for the poor picture quality, and the lack of a frontal shot.
But any advice/comments at all on this fitting would be greatly greatly appreciated

I do know that the pants length have to be taken in. And i think the sleeves of the jacket is the right length, just
that my brother's shirt sleeves were too long.

Thanks in advance nod[1].gif

Your left shoulder (from the back) has a slight divot.

Unfortunately, this is so complex that I and just about any other tailor would definitely have to see touch and feel what's going on with this to understand just what to fix. Either that or I need more time and clearer pics even of precisely what you've pinned to get a firm idea.

It may be time for you to try other options:

So, how conservative is your office?

I'd probably get some stares.

Going to go with this for now. I'm Irish but it'll still work. Might look good with burgundy half brogues.

make sure you get those pleats pressed correctly...
