Looking for fit advice on this new MTM shirt. I need to make the armholes larger. Any other suggestions.
Gentlemen, I need your assistance. I recently purchased this Zegna Su misura jacket off a forum member, measurements were fairly spot on but only so much can be conveyed via numbers.
It seems to me that my left shoulder has more padding and the slope (angle?) of the arms is more forward than my natural stance. The right shoulder seems much better to me. The jacket is really comfortable and fits a hole in my wardrobe so I want to do everything I can to make it work.
My apologies for the cell pics, I'll get better one's shortly.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's hard to comment on fit when you're holding a cellphone like that. Most people have uneven shoulders in terms of both length and slope. Shoulder padding can be added or decreased by most good tailors. It looks good in general. You might want to clean up the chest a bit too. It's hard to tell from the picture though.
MZHammer: The creases in the body under the armpits suggest that your shoulders slope more than the jacket's, thus they are not supporting it correctly and the extra length collapses. Does the jacket body look cleaner if you shrug your shoulders?
But oddly enough, the convex curvature of the right shoulder also makes me think it's more sloped than your actual shoulder, which seems contradictory.
Altering shoulder slope is possible, but it won't be cheap. If you find out it's the alteration you need and you think it's worth it, go ahead.
First and foremost, you really should take the time to have someone take better pics of front side and back with more lighting.
However....there is nothing incorrect about the shoulder slope. The creases we can kindof see under your armpits are not from incorrect shoulder slops (Sorry RDiaz).
Looks like you might be a little barrel chested with slightly more erect posture or there's tightness in the blades. Kinda hard to tell from pics.
If it's Su Misura that means "made for you" so it is probably someone else's MTM jacket and there's a ton of possibilities as far as how it was cut and whether or not extra padding was added to one shoulder. Better pics will help but you need to see an actual tailor because the issues may be far more complicated than can be accurately assessed here.
It really is unbelievable. Every-single-time someone posts an iPhone fit pic, the response is always same: we can't actually see the fit properly because you are holding up a phone, distorting your suit fit and photographing in poor light at a terrible angle. All one has to do is read a few posts to figure out that iPhone pics will not get one very far.
