The shoulders on the 36s are too narrow. Stick with the 38. See if a tailor can clean up the back a bit (might need to be let out slightly).

Hey everyone,

 

I'm planning on remaking this Indochino jacket, and would like to know everyones opinions on this fit.  Sorry for the slightly blurry pictures, I'll see if I can get some better ones.

 

The shirt came free with the suit, so I can remake that (as well as the pants).  I'm debating on the shirt as I got button down and I'm considering switching it to spread collar if they'll let me.

 

Any thoughts?

Hi guys. Today was the first fitting for my first bespoke jacket. I admit I'm not used to wearing jackets but something about it seemed off to me. I'm hoping you guys can tell me if it's just my inexperience or if there's indeed something wrong with the jacket. To me it seems the buttoning point could be moved a bit lower and the waist let out a bit. Thoughts?

 

(Yes, one side of the jacket is longer than the other)

How this MTM shirt? I'm getting it darted to clean the bakc up, and the sleeves are going to be let out (the cuffs are juuuust too tight for my watch).
















What can I do about the excess fabric behind my shoulders?

Would that fix the horizontal bunching below the collar?

would appreciate your expertise in the fit department. 
 
I bought a RTW suit which I can still return. There is a gap at the back of the collar, see pics. Is this something a "decent" tailor could adjust reasonably easy, or should I just return the suit? Would alterations to fix this risk the overall fit? Would keep it IF this can be altered without too much hassle or risk.
 
First pic is with the jacket unbuttoned, second and third are buttoned.


(I'm aware that the shirt is too wide in the neck, but it's basically the same problem with the jacket, more or less, with other shirts as well)

You need to take better pics. It's easy to see the collar roll but not so easy to see what exactly is causing it. It can be tailored but knowing the cause determines the fix

Mrjester

Next time you see your tailor, take this photo. Stumbled across this when looking for more information on how to fix your problem as many of my clients have it and I know it isn't cut and dry. The directions would be this: if the waist fits, let out the waist from the band down thru the seat in order to straighten the seat curve. That is what is causing much of the problem..too angled seat curve. Since you're letting out the waist, the back part of the hips must be taken in to pull the excess back in (essentially, this operation just straightens the seat angle...what a job, right?). The waistband must be chopped off almost all the way around probably to the front belt loop. The more space you have from the outside edge of the back pocket to the out seam the better.
Next step is the back part of the inseam or stride must be let out probably all that it can be. This needs to be a sharp curve because the whole point is to extend the back part of the fork. Then the back rise is reduced slightly, as well when replacing the waistband. A client I'm doing this for has the issue so bad that I am shifting the whole back part of the leg upward to reduce some excess length back there.
In the future, you need to address your posture and fix it or you will spend tons of money fixing trousers and never really get a perfect result. This alteration is taking cloth out of the length at the back which can make the front balance feel even shorter (it already is if the back is too long) and when you walk, you will real,y feel the trousers pull against your thighs. You need to work on strengthening your hip flexors so they'll pull your pelvis back into neutral alignment. That and a few other things like certain stretches and other exercises. Just look up posterior pelvic tilt and/or swayback until you find out what you need to. I know it sucks but it takes 1-2 months to fix the posture problem vs $$$$ for the rest of your life fixing pants.

I seriously owe you for this advice. You've done so much research for me. 

 

I'll look in to fixing the problem of my posture, hopefully that can be worked out.

Just re my earlier post, there's considerable shrinkage after the first wash

I'll probably start with this.

The hoizontal bunching is an easy fix for tailors. I have the same problem too on my jackets.

Hey All, 

 

I've been a lurker for a while, but I've finally decided to get my first navy suit (It's a BR tailored fit navy suit), and I was looking for some feedback on the fit. I've been deciding between a 36R and a 38S and can't seem to decide which one fits better. Any advice/opinion would be appreciated!

 

As for the slight bunching on my right shoulder, I think it has to do with the fact that my right is lower than my left. I can't seem to figure it out, and it happens on both jackets.

I just got my 38r Kent Wang RTW suit. I have zero experience in alterations. I was hoping I could get some help from you gentleman. Sorry for the photo bomb. Do I need to size down one in the pants? I have a fair amount of room in the waist.

 

 

Thank you for any and all help.

post #3674 of 5141

2 suits and the pair of navy trousers.

For the navy suit, I obviously need to get the sleeves taken in; however, I am wondering if returning it/replacing it

Those pics won't work, unfortunately. If you've been lurking awhile, lurk a little more over to the first post of the thread as it gives instructions on how to take proper photos. Yeah...it's a pain in the ass because it requires someone else to help you but in the end it's really quite crucial to see what needs to be done. It's all for your benefit.
