But the jacket is a bit harder for me to tell, here are some pics












The look I am going for is a well tailored slim look but not so much that I look like Russell Brand


Thanks in advance!

The sleeves are long, too much shirt collar is showing in front, the waist is too tight, the upper back is too big, and (from the side) the shoulders are way off. Because of the last problem and the sheer number of problems, do not buy the suit or return it if it's already yours.

Please critique my fit.

 

I've had the pants hemmed, arms shortened and neck roll removed. The shoulders don't seem to fit, could this have happened during the removal of the neck roll alteration? It's like only the front of my shoulders are touching the fabric. Also seems to be a tiny bit of neckroll left, I guess I should complain?

 

Is the jacket too long though? (I'm 5'7")

 

 

 

 

Thank you soo much!!

 

No comments = everything is perfect? ;)

^that your head is completely missing just creeps the hell out of me. And are the sleeves on the jacket the same length?

I need to have it taken in on the side/back and slightly shorten the sleeves, other than that it's just a tad too big in the shoulders. The back looks very clean however!



sorry, but these are another unfortunate example of useless iphone photos that no tailor in his right mind can do anything with.

 

How can you expect anyone in here to give realistic feedback on a jacket you yourself identify as being the wrong size while you're posing in front of a mirror taking a selfie??

Any suggestions for this tux? I realise the picture is pretty bad - hoping to get one under better lighting tomorrow... (also apologies for the missing head, the new photoshop does funky things when you delete a section!) 

 

I realise the shoes are wrong, and the shirt not ironed...

Hey guys, I just bought this suit online. Any comments/critique on the fit would be very helpful as well as any tailoring/alteration advice. Thank you so much!

 

Edit: If the pictures aren't very helpful, please let me know and I'll try my best taking a few better ones.

Hello All,

 

I need some suggestions on how to fix this suit. Overall im happy with the results and I cant complain since i paid 160 bucks to have it made here in my country (Tailoring is really cheap here). Its a navy blue MTM suit, but I need to mostly fix the side sleeve creasing/wrinkles. When i move my arm forward they go away, so assume that the sleeve must be taken off and have it rotated (sleeve pitch). Also, what do you think about trimming the sides a little bit? to have is look more like a )( shape, would it mess up the back somehow?.

Apologies of this has been asked before, but please see the necklines of the suits of the two gentlemen below. The neckline of the suit on the right seems to be going up higher. Is that just a matter of that gentlemen having a more developed traps or can that be created by a tailor?

the guy on the right has shoulders that are more sloped which is what you're referring to. A tailor can have something like that made, but if your shoulders are more square than sloped it's not something you can or should do. 

What you can do is have a jacket made with little to no construction in the shoulder or perhaps a pagoda shoulder to create the illusion of slope for flattery but it's not an operation every tailor has the skill to accomplish.

Here's my latest MTM coat. I think it's pretty good, specially from the front, but the back seems a little short, and as a result, the bottom is being pulled away from my seat. For a next commission, besides making the jacket a bit longer overall, I would maybe slightly drop the fronts from the top (making the coat shorter from the bottom the same amount so the hem stays parallel to the ground), but what do I need to ask for to fix the back?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep in mind the extra room in the chest is there on purpose, coat was made to allow good range of movement.

Diaz that looks pretty good! I agree that the length is a bit short for my taste but a great look in the shoulder, chest, and arm. Great jacket!
post #4109 of 4781
Yes you need more length on the back over the blades. Notice the horizontal line of the plaid over your left blade has more curve than the right. Your left blade is much more prominent than the right. The large blade is what makes the wrinkles under your arm on the left side. Would lengthen the back 1/2" or so straight across the top of the back shoulder, Add 1/4" on the front shoulder at the neck point only, not the shoulder point. Some hand/iron work to work the back skye short. Don't add anything to the right shoulder. well just maybe 1/4" at the neck point on the back of the right shoulder.
If your tailor thinks he should slope the left shoulder to clean up the blade, he's wrong.


Not sure how this will effect the front/back balance. You are borderline on having a short front. This may or may not be easy to translate to your maker.

Thank you Despos. Yeah, I know the coat borders on having a short front, so I was thinking of dropping it a tiny wee bit to allow some leeway for posture changes throughout the day. I like the hem to be parallel to the ground but I could ask to shorten from the bottom as much as it's dropped from the top. It looks like I'm one of those people who need both a longer front and back to achieve proper balance.

 

I'm not sure your suggestions can be carried out to the MTM maker, but I'll try. I think the form has spaces for indicating amount of "stoop-edness" and dropping fronts/back, but I don't think they can do anything with the front shoulder at the neck point. Will ask the tailor, though.

 

The prominent blade explanation makes sense, as the vent looks a bit better from the other side of the coat, actually!

 

Thank you very much.
