This is a BB Fitz coat 38R. what do you think about the fit? does it fit me?
Thanks in advance and sorry about the quality of the pics.
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? ;)
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??
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.
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?.
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.
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.
