I got a shirt from Luxire in recently, and I'm looking to make some slight adjustments to nail down the fit. My sleeves billow a bit still, and there is definitely some excess fabric in the lower back. So far, I'm looking to:
I'm no expert, so I will limit my feedback to my first impressions as a regular observer.
1. The pants are too long.
2. The jacket sleeves seems to be long as well.
3. Maybe the jacket is also about an inch or so too long ?
From here onwards it will be more about my style preference. So I would keep quiet and let the experts comment.
@mensimageconsultant thanks for your reply on the other thread. Very valuable feedback.
I'm also posting here to solicit more feedback as mentioned in the other thread.
Please help critique the trial shirt I received from Modern Tailor.
The sleeves are very short due to a severe misunderstanding. I provided the inside length of the sleeve and it was taken as the outside length. The picture in the guide is a bit misleading, but to be fair the desc says outside.
Apart from the obvious issue what else needs to be corrected ?
I'm not sure why there is pooling at the back? Otherwise it seems decent.
The measurements I provided are from a slim fitting shirt I liked, and for the most part it seems good.
My concerns are.
1. Why there is pooling at the back?
2. Is the shirt too fitting ?
(This is more about my style preference than anything, as they did it based on my measurements).
3. Does the collar look all right?
Can anyone explain to me the merits of hand stitching the lapel line? I don't mean the actual lapel itself, but the line on which the fabric is folded outward to form the lapel. I have a few jackets, and some have the lapel lines hand stitched (I can feel the stitches while running my fingers along the line) while others are simply folded back onto the jacket itself.
Can anyone enlighten me on this? Thank you.
It was a missunderstanding. I provided the inside length and what they expected was the outside length.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who confused this measurement.
The customer service folks got back to me saying the tailor thought the sleeve length was unusually short and asked me to measure again.
But it wasn't made clear it was the outside length that was required.
They also said the armhole and bicep width was too small. However I didn't notice any issues there.
At least I was comfortable moving around in it and I normally like to wear fairly slim fit shirts.
