Jacket shoulder angle is too sloped for your shoulders. If you unbutton the jacket the fronts will open and fall away. Need to square the shoulders of the jacket. Not sure how close you can get by altering this. Can't be too specific from just one picture.

Thanks for advice!

Jacket is one size too big, and/or the wrong cut for you. If you start altering this, like tapering the sides, then the shoulders will look exaggerated. Better to size down so all areas of the jacket stay proportional

Anyone got any adjustments before it's finished?

Looks pretty clean. There is no back or side view so there isn't much to go on. Do you have any concerns? I can still nit pick a few things.

Three things I notice, there isn't much overlap and you may get some pulling when they put the buttons on.

Sleeves hit at different points on your wrist. Adjust one up or the other down. Your call. Sleeves may be set a touch to the back but not a biggie. Sleeves look a little dry. Did they let the sides out at the armhole to loosen things up and did you ask for the sleeves to be trimmed down? Just curious

Looks like the shoulders are pressing against your shoulder point excessively. You have very forward pitched shoulders, especially the right side.

I have been a tailor over 40 years and have never fitted a jacket over an undershirt and I wouldn't ever do that. I don't care to fit a jacket over jeans either. Just my little rant.
post #3905 of 5335

Thanks for your reply, I was going to have the jacket a little tighter across the front, I like my weekend coats quite slim fitting, so thats just personal preference. Sides haven't been let out at the armhole, so not sure there.

 

I see what you mean regarding the right shoulder, will bring it up, at least there are no creases this time. The problem I have really forward shoulders but I go gym a lot so my posture can change depending on what I've trained at the gym the night before, I know it sounds bizarre but it can happen.

 

Regarding the fitting on jeans and t shirt -  this is how I will be wearing the jacket, it's not part of a suit, it's to be worn as above, maybe with a shirt on but often not, sometimes v and sometimes round neck.

 

Thanks for input

A pinstripe blazer? Interesting choice...
post #3907 of 5335

lso what do you think of the general sillhoutte?

post #3908 of 5335

I purchased the fabric really cheap, and there was only enough for a jacket ha :)

Your shoulders are very forward and are most difficult to fit but hey did a good job. My preference is to make the jacket "float" over your shoulder point to create forward movement in the jacket. This helps to keep the jacket tight on the neck.

They should fit the jacket when you are at your max from working out. Bodies do change day to day or even morning to night

So your saying you wanted a pinstriped odd jacket made from suiting cloth?
post #3910 of 5335

My big issue is I love really light fine threads, and it's hard to find people who can make a good clean job of it, thats one thing I appreciate about this jacket, the cloth is ultra fine, but the fronts have come out extremely clean with no fusing at all.

 

And yes, I don't particular have a set jacket type I often wear my suits as separates, I like to mix formal and casual, but I have a lot of clothes so really depends how I'm feeling and where Im going

Despos, thanks for the feedback. I agree that I probably need a size smaller (this is a 41R) but this is an ebay find so I'm reluctant to go through the hassle of trying to resell it since I can't return it.

For what it's worth my shoulders are more built up from heavy lifting than they may appear so it doesn't feel quite as loose as it may look. I'll have to try it on again tonight and come to a decision on whether to alter it or not.

That looks really clean.  You can have them increase the half back to take care of the tightness in your shoulder points.  I always increase the half back when a client has forward pitch shoulders.  That's where you need the extra room.  You may need to increase it a half inch or so.  You will be much more comfortable.  Looks great though.

Hi there,

 

I was hoping one of the tailors could chime in with there opinion about how much a burberry single breasted overcoat can be brought in before it starts to look odd?

 

Basically the pit to pit is fine, but it skirts out quite a bit and i would rather i was a bit slimmer ie tapered..

 

thanks
