not a tailor but you should take off the sleeve tag if you're wearing it out already...

 

 

question for tailors:

 

can the bicep area of a shirt sleeve be tapered while leaving the forearm width the same?

post #4562 of 5298

Hello again

 

Quick question on an adjustment im going to make on my next Kent Wang suit.  I feel the armhole is just a touch too big.  I also feel the bicep can be taken in a touch also.  My question is this.  If i take in the armhole will it slim up the bicep too?  Im only thinking of taking each in .5cm.  SHould i just do the armhole or is it pretty safe to do both since im only taking in the smallest amount.

 

Thanks for you help

Hi all,

 

Would greatly appreciate your feedback on these two suits.  Many thanks in advance for your help.

 

Suit 1 (new)

- Trouser legs has been folded up

- Trousers need to be let out at the waist

 

 

 

 

 

Suit 2

Are the shoulders too broad?

- Is the jacket too long?

Thoughts on fit of this jacket?

Try to look pass the overall wrinkliness of the shirt. Going to iron it soon.

Give me every possible feedback about the fit. It's XXL

Need some sizing help. I wear 42R / 52 European in Suitsupply, all cuts, Lazio, Sienna, London, Havana. But I just tried a 42R in Washington and it was simply too tight. Not just the chest, but also arms. Usually a 42R requires no alterations for me, other than the pants.

So I sized up to 44R and while it looks good overall, I'm concerned that the shoulders might be too big. I took some photos and I was wondering if you can provide some feedback.

Thank you.

Hi Guys. So here is my first attempt at suitsupply, at I'm pleasantly suprised. My problem with OTR (and even the M2M option I went with) are the length of my suits being too long and shoulder width as my shoulders are not very big.

This is the Napoli 40S. I bought the 40R in the same suit and I feel that it is too long, but the length of the short seems more appropriate.

I understand the shirt collar makes things a little off and I can't really tell if the shoulder fits on this. But what do you guys think overall?

My first suit - Napoli 38R from Suitsupply. I tried a 36R but the jacket was too small around the waist and hips, causing 'caving in' at the lower back, and I couldn't even zip up the pants. Though I felt the shoulders on the 36R were more closely fitting than this 38R, the difference is not that much. Do the shoulders and chest look ok?

Also, I'm aware I have a low right shoulder causing the wrinkling on the right side of my back - how do I go about asking a tailor to fix this?

I also have quite well developed quads, and my knees aren't perfectly straight (been like that since I was a kid), making it difficult to achieve a clean line in the leg. You can see, in the 4th photo, when I bend my leg at the knee the pant leg does something funky in response to the shape of my leg. Is there anything that I can ask a tailor to do accommodate this, or to improve the fit of the pants generally?

Forgive my crappy tie knot, haven't worn a tie since high school.

Thanks for any suggestions you guys can offer.

Hi, I'd like to get some feedback on this Modern Tailor shirt before I place a big order. There are 2 issues that I can currently see:

 

1) There is a fold happening on the chest right near the underarm area. 

2) The shirt rolls up behind the neck

 

These pics kind of suck but I'm hoping they show enough to get some feedback.

Indeed. That is a very, very well fitting jacket for OTR. Only issues I see are some slight wrinkling on the backs of the upper sleeves (pitch issue, perhaps?) and some wrinkling in the lower back area. The latter might be alleviated by letting out the waist a touch.

If this was a suit jacket, I'd say it's slightly too short, but the length is probably fine for a sport coat. And to get really nitpicky, the button stance is a little high for my taste. But overall, nice. smile.gif

I grabbed it without any hesitation when I saw it in a recent Hackett sale. It's usually quite difficult for my to find a proper fit OTR, as I'm in 36R and need really slim cut (5'11" , 150lbs), while live in Germany..

 

I agree with you on the (hopefully slight) pitch issue and button stance, but I think I can (and maybe have to..) live with it. I will ask my tailor if she can do anything to clear the lower back area. 

 

Thanks for your kind word! :cheers:
