Some of the issues with the trouser may be caused by how the braces are adjusted. Try the trouser length just touching the shoe and the back part 1" longer than the front. Trouser front/back balance needs to be adjusted

Hi All!

 

Long time lurker. Just trying on Kent Wang's MTM process. I have his OTR at the moment - fitted it to my shoulders (hopefully) since the rest of my torso is pretty off balance from the shoulders.

 

Any feedback on the fit? Any recommendations for options like a roped/soft shoulder? I'm meant to be presenting to clients and the board at some point in the next quarter and I don't want to look like an ass.

^^ Trousers are too long and the jacket is way too tight around the waist.

I'm guessing you are only after critique of shoulders. Everything else is so far off that valuable suggestions may not be possible.

^^^ having been to Kent's pop up store, I can attest his sizing is not for everyone. Not most people even, self included.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm mostly after the shoulders at the moment. I have the misfortune of having the shoulders of a 36-38r and the body of a 40r.

Do you think the shoulders are ok/close enough?

Lol are you going to ignore the rest of the jacket?

Oh of course not. I just figure that getting the shoulders right first is better than trying to fit to my torso, and then having to guess how much to reduce the shoulders and lengths by.

Aside from the chest and waist, which are off by a few inches. Is there anything you can see?

Honesty I'd just get my money back and go somewhere else, you can get a better looking jacket OTR. It's almost like a comedy sketch for tailoring

your upper arms are popping out at the side.

chance of a decent fit with all of the adjustments, is not great.

Kent's suit is well made, but it works for people who fit into the try=ons.
try the next size up. before ordering

Hi guys,


Bought this on ebay for next to nothing knowing it would need some work. Other than the sleeves, puckering in the back, chest and waist, any other suggestions? I think it's too long and want to shorten the length of the jacket by 1 inch (yes I know it's a cautionary alteration). From top of pocket to end of jacket there is 11 inches, and I've read that 10 inches is appropriate. Does anyone think the 1 inch (maybe more) would throw off proportion?

 

Hoping to head to my tailor on my lunch break, so any responses by then will be happily received :)!

I think it looks good, shorten sleeves, and get him to alter for your prominent seat so it hands better, and then it will look good for OTR, seen a lot worse bespoke in this thread

Need style, This jacket is the wrong size and length for you. Better to return/sell than alter. Would be a mistake to try and alter. Adjusting one part of the jacket will emphasize other misproportions and look worse

I don't think it looks so bad, especially if he paid barely anything for it

When someone is looking at him, they don't know what he paid for it. They just know it looks 'off.'

The alterations he proposes will cost more than enough to buy a secondhand coat that is at least the right size and length.
