Maybe it's the ideas in your head that you need to change. Taking in a jacket waist 1.5" is a lot, and neither of these jackets need that much suppression if any at all. I'd say they are fine as is: they have shape in the waist, but still drape nicely. If you take in the waists 1.5", I'm betting you'll have some unsightly wrinkling/pulling.

As for the DB jacket, it looks rather short, as the jacket length is barely longer than the sleeve length. I'm guessing this is intentional, though.

You're probably right. I know these jackets are shorter than the rest in my closet and I'm definitely not used to them yet. These pics are the first time I've worn either of them. I'm also contemplating taking the sleeves up just a touch, it might give the impression that the jacket is actually longer than it is, but that might be a little nit picky.

Thanks for your input flyswatter

Yeah, the DB is quite short, but has a nice shape. The other has a better length but the shape from the front isn't as nice. 1.5" would be way too much, though in person a tailor might be able to determine if a bit is necessary, on the first one anyway.

So I'm planning to buy a mtm suit on-line and don't have a perfect fitting suit for measurement purpose my left shoulder is slightly higher than my right. My posture is otherwise "normal". How can. I best ensure no collar gap? If it ,matters I will use Modern Tailor.

I had this bespoke shirt made by WW Chan and am generally happy with the fit. Nevertheless, I wanted to see if anyone has a suggestion how to further improve things for the next order - any input is welcome.

Please note that I am not shooting for a modern slim fit (would not fit my body type and also be inappropriate in my professional environment), but something more conservative without being blousy.

Not quite a fit question, but...

To what extent can a tailor make a pair of pants bigger? Not just in the waist/seat but throughout the thigh/legs. And how?

looks very good to me if you are looking for the relaxed fit.

AlexE, I think it looks very good if you're not looking for slim fit. The one thing I wonder, when you wear with a jacket, do the sleeves feel a bit long? I have some shirts that look like they sit right about where yours does and when I wear my jacket that has proper sleeve length I sometimes wish the shirt sleeves were a bit shorter. I can't see a jacket so this is mere idle curiosity. It's a good looking shirt.

If I wear one of my WW Chan jackets with the shirt, there is about 1cm to 1.5cm of shirt cuff visible, which is the ideal amount in my opinion. With other jackets the amount of visible cuff is the same or a bit less.

Tailor recommended taking the waist of hte jacket in more, but I think it looks good as is? Thoughts?

The amount of waist suppression is more a preference than a rule. So if you like it the way it is then, that's fine. Remember to stuff your inside jacket pockets with you wallet and smartphone, before deciding how much you want to take it in if you choose to do so.

Having been blessed with a behind fit for a Brazilian bikini model I have a hard time finding a pair of pants that actually aren't too tight. Recently I had a pair of trousers made by a tailor and I could use some feedback.

They are comfortable as hell but I'm a bit worried about the behind, should I be or am I just being silly?

Are the side pockets flat? If so, looks fine.

 

I have the same problem due to my 20 years of cycling. Modern pants are either cut waay too slim across the thigh, or they have no butt room. Then i end up in something with 4" of space around the waist.

The side pockets are flat and slanted!
