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.
I have been referred to you after much high praise in the MC Forum. I just received this suit that I'm wearing and I would like your viewpoint on the jacket. I'm a tough build 6'2 210lb ex football player with a very muscular build. The photos you'll see are me in a 42R SS Napoli. I've been advised that MTM might be a better option for me so if you have pointers on that too I'd love to hear it and also if you have suggestions on good MTM programs...anyway here is the fit:

That's awesome. I attributed the sleeve issue to simple pitch issues when it was put together. I live in the NYC area and everyone Tom, Dick, and Harry claims to be the best tailor. I don't know if you are familiar with the area, but do any names jump out to you off the top of your head.
Stitch were there before and after pics? Pics, good.
Fair enough, Despos. I saw this after I went to the tailor and heard that all the alterations I want will come to $230 - will try and sell.
How about this one. It's shorter in length, but still a tad too long I feel. I wouldn't mind paying for the alterations on this one. Any hope?
I think it was fair, but more than what I wanted to invest in the jacket. I'm a 40S; this is a 40R, I believe. I messed up with the length on the last two, so I've learned my lesson.
Do you think if I shorten the length a 1/2 inch, and take in the chest and waist it could work, or is it a lost cause? Thanks, Chris, you're insights are always appreciated.
I received my first MTM shirt and pants the other day. I am very pleased as this was my frist order. However, I would appreciate help from you guys in what changes I might need to do for my next order. As this also is my first try with MTM clothing, I feel as though I am a bit lost in the dark about what to do next. So, please have a look at the following images and let me know what you think.
Thanks! It is much appreciated.

I have also made a couple of markings on a couple of pics that indicate the areas I'd like to clean up the most. But be sure to tell me if there are other areas that might need some work too. I am all ears.
