This is an OTR suit with no alterations. Pants of course need to be shortened,.
Thanks in advance for your comments. I hope the lighting in the pics are ok.
Can any tailors chime in please?
I just received my jacket from the tailor to shorten the sleeves and take in the waist. Now, i'm not one of these young kids who like the waist suppression to touch their body with wrinkled arms and etc but I do like my jacket to fit me.
Do you think I need more waist suppression? Also, do the arms look somewhat baggy?
Hello guys, frequent lurker but first time poster.
I've just received my first MTM suit and shirt from BlackLapel. I severely underestimated how Slim Fit their Slim Fit suits are - I assumed that since everything I buy off the rack is slim fit, my suit would also be slim fit; unfortunately, it is a little too slim for my taste and for my body type.
I've posted my initial thoughts on the fit at the bottom of this post; I'm sure I've missed some things, and I do not know how to fix each issue I've identified (i.e. which measurement would have to change and by how much). Any help would be much appreciated, even if it's just confirmation of the issues I've already identified. I intend to go to a tailor this weekend to get their opinion as well (tailor recommendations for the Arlington/DC area would be much appreciated!).

For what it's worth, I'm happy with the suit; whether it requires a remake or a refund + start over, I think I will be ordering several more but I want to take my time with this first one to make sure the fit is right.
