we have a way of patching an elbow, that is good , all things considered.
if your shirtmaker has fabric, then they can replace a sleeve

Was going to say the same. Maybe something on your desk?

(Edit...Didn't see the later posts re this issue.)

I realize the bicep measurement is too small and will be changing that, but I don't think that accounts for all of the problems seen here. Thanks in advance.

Main issues:
1. Right shoulder bunching (both front and back)
2. Left shoulder loose on back side
3. Extra fabric in the lower back area


     
       



    
  


Repost an additional flick with a jacket on to gauge sleeve length.

These are from a brand named "Casa de Lino". I don't know if they sell outside of Mexico.

Bumping this as I'm still hoping to get some feedback on shirt and trousers. If I'm breaking any rules by doing this, please let me know and I'll delete:

For this set of pictures, I am looking for help on the fit of my shirt (my first MTM shirt) as well as the pants (bottom half the suit). Undistorted pictures of the full getup later. I realize I am not wearing shoes, apologies in advance. It's the one well lit place suitable for pictures in my apartment, and the GF won't allow shoes there :)

 

To my untrained eye, the fit seems to be quite good. But that's why I'm here:

The shoulders don't seem to fit right, which is a significant issue. The sleeves look slightly long. Only an issue if the shirt has already been washed several times.

By the way, the pants look a bit tight in the seat.

Thanks for the reply. What exactly about the shoulders doesn't look right to you? Does the yoke extend out too far? I thought the general guideline was that the yoke should extend to the point where the shoulder slope drops off into the arm. Is this correct?

 

I will consider letting out the seat of the pants, however I am concerned it will create wrinkles just below the seat due to how slim the rest of the leg is. Do you think this would be an issue?

 

As I look more at my own pics, I also feel that the back of the shirt could be taken in some, specifically in the lower back. My back naturally curves in quite a bit, so doing so might help eliminate some of the loose looking fabric in that area. Thoughts?

I just got this Black Lapel tuxedo. There are some things I like about it, and some things that I don't like, but I want to get some other opinions to see if they align with what I see. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

To BM555 and his Black label tuxedo


-The short jacket emphasizes your hips, make you look like a man wearing a skirt.

-The lapels are too small; they look very sorry

-you have the infamous "shoulder divot"

-Those tight pants puts extra emphasis on your bow-legged stance


Other than that, it's just perfect.

Thanks lee. I'm with you on the jacket length and tight pants. Too short of jacket was my biggest issue and was noticeable right away.

 

I actually don't mind the lapels, but maybe they are a bit off?

 

I can't figure out why there is this shoulder divot, as the shoulders seem to fit well. Thoughts on what measurements to change on the rework?

So I was in need of a blazer to make a full suit and I am one of those weird sizes in between a 34 & 36. I got this from Topman. How bad is the fit? I'm pretty sure it's probably to tight in the upper body area but I'm afraid if I size up it will be to big in the other areas. I appreciate any feedback. I do plan to get a proper suit made. This is just temporary but don't want to go out in it if it looks ridiculous.
