Why do the fabric collapse like on my right leg (also slightly on left)? 

post #3962 of 5200

I Just have my second fitting today and in looks much better. Still could use some improvement tough. Please ignore the bad tie

 

It looks like I really could use fuller upper arm. The lower back is still a mess but tailor said ironing will solve it. is this true? How about the pants? is the taper too much?

Hi Tailors, would appreacite your help. I have a lot of trouble when it comes to trousers. This are the best I can found around here.

You need to size up or find a different cut. The front is too tight, but there's probably not enough material to let out in the crotch.

Bad case of gaping pockets

hmmm, could i get a second opinion? i would have said i need to shorten the rise in the pants and pull them up from the waistband in the back so they hang off my waist and not just collapse around my thighs/calves. the jacket fabric collapses in between my shoulder blades in the upper back and needs to get shortened from the collar. am i really being too neurotic about the fit?

This is my first MTM suit from ProperSuit. It came out not as well as I expected, but I would appreciate any specific comments or advice. Someone suggested I post in this thread to get a professional opinion.
Also curious about what is going on with the strange lines on the pants and how can that be fixed.

Here's a Tom Ford suit I bought recently. Material is a wool/silk/linen blend. Colour is actually a dark charcoal, just looks brown in these shots, which are heavily post-processed due to poor lighting.

 

 I would like some advice about jacket sleeve length (plus any other observations our resident tailors may care to make).

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of my own observations: 

 

- It's a typical Tom Ford cut, probably not to everyone's taste, but I like it.

 

- the crease at the right upper back, below the shoulder, was from the jacket being compressed in the wardrobe. It follows the line of the shoulder pad. Maybe there's a bit too much material across the upper back? Minor issue, the crease is usually not there.

 

- you can see particularly in the second shot, that I have a mid-thoracic spinal kyphosis (due to teenage Scheuermann's Disease, confirmed on lateral chest X-ray). In order to keep my head up, I have to throw my stomach forward. Not much I can do about that. I mention it for the sake of completeness.

 

My most pressing issue is the sleeves - I think they are too long. But there is only 4cm between the sleeve edge and the base of the first button. Could I have them shortened a little, say 1.5cm taken from the end, or would this (a) make the buttons too close to the sleeve edge, (b) throw out the balance of the suit? If OTOH I have them shortened at the top, isn't this both a much bigger and much riskier undertaking?

 

Thanks for your collective feedback.

The sleeves need shortening 1/2" to 3/4", this will reduce the space from hem of the sleeve to the buttonhole but that is all you can do. You cannot shorten the sleeve from the top because of the plaid pattern in the cloth. You will lose the horizontal pattern matching in the upper sleeve which is a no- no.

Thanks Despos for the rapid feedback. Given that the jacket is quite long, you don't think this will throw out the aesthetic balance of the suit?

 

Any comments about the fit across the upper back?

post #3971 of 5200
Shortening the sleeves won't have any negative effects on the proportions of the garment. The upper back has some fullness but not a major issue. The lines from the fullness are horizontal so it is just extra room. If they were diagonal, it would be more of a fit issue. The overall length of the jacket is fine. I am impressed with how well the jacket is balanced for your posture.
post #3972 of 5200

Thanks again. You'll be even more impressed when I tell you that this is an OTR suit which has had no alterations at all! Just sheer, blind good luck that it fits me so well given my stoop, and especially seeing as I picked it up for half price!

 

Based on the above, I will go ahead and have the sleeves shortened a little. I think I can get away with taking them up by 1.5cm, leaving 2.5cm (= 1") length from new edge to first button.

Hope you can find more of them. TF works for you. When a garment is cut well and has good balance, it is generously forgiving on our less than perfect frames.

Have you tried on Brioni?

These fit pretty well. You want the back to hang as well as the front, correct?
