This maybe common knowledge, but here's a tip regarding shirt sleeve length on button cuffs …

Sometimes just moving the button is all that's needed to dial in the length. Adjust the opening (+/-) so it stops at the desired point along the wrist.

I just picked up this suit from SuitSupply after alterations by their in-house tailoring service (which I'm starting to think was a mistake). I'm a tough fit because I'm tall and thin with long arms (6'2", ~150 lbs, 6'8" arm span). The back looks messy to me, with a triangle at the shoulders and bunching near the sleeves. Can this be fixed? Any recommendations would be very appreciated.

Chest and shoulders are wide but in my opinion fixing them is too much expensive for a suitsupply suit.  You should try to wear with it a pull or vest in order to fill this space.  Lucky sleeves and jacket lenght are perfect. Pants are good, 1 cm shorter would be perfect. Armholes are nice!

I would like to get some feedback from the resident tailors regarding the pocket flare and whether it is attributed to the pants being new and requires it to be ironed, a flaw, or the cut is not a great fit on me.

 

I am thinking it is either 1 or 2 as the pants fit me fine IME. No pulling that I can feel or visually see across the seat, and the trousers are actually hanging off my butt (waist requires to be taken in). 

 

Can an alteration tailor fix this?

i'm hoping to get some feedback on this Fitzgerald suit from Brooks Brothers.  Not sure if I need a different size or just alterations.  This is a 40R.  As always, thank you for your help!

post #5167 of 5201

Any thoughts?  Hoping to either return it/get it tailored in the next 2-3 days....would really appreciate feedback!

 

Happy Monday.

Shoulders are wide but waist is tight. You need a size down but not slim fit... change model of suit, 38R drop 4 is your size.
Second problem right shoulder is lower then left shoulder... a good tailor can fix easly this problem!

Please let me know how you think this suit fits. Im a bit underwhelmed with it right now.

 

I feel like its long and the arms a bit wide. the shoulders and chest are fine. I was concerned with a bit of collar gap. The chest looks clean and the lapels sit flat. 

 

I wonder if its worth taking to the tailor to get

 

1) Body taken in, add shape.

2) Sleeve taper? Slight rotation?

3) Maybe shorten jacket?

4) Sleeve length

 

The pants also need to be tapered. 

 

Overall, I wonder if its worth it. I want it to look like something spoo would wear in the end.

 

FYI this is a size 50R/40R Fit A.

 

Thanks!

Bump. Any help would be appreciated.

Just had this one constructed at Suit Supply. A bit slimmer than I am normally accustomed to, and the pants are a hair shorter than I would like, maybe too tight? I got a pretty fat ass though, so could just be some motivation. Also, ignore the shirt, no other clean white shirts today -- poor fit.

Any thoughts?

Here's a blazer I picked up last week. 38S when I usually wear 40S in most jackets.
Thought the arms would need shortening as they are bizarrely long for the tagged size, but what needs pst attention are the shoulders.
Got the measuring tape out once I got it home, and they are 20" across, which is huge for a 38S jacket.

So here's a photo. Arm length doesn't look as bad as I first though, but what can be done with the shoulders?

For comparison, here's a 40S Daks jacket I'm wearing today. Had the sleeves shortened on this and had thought the tailor had still left them a bit long, but looking at a photo instead of in the mirror, it's better then I'd first imagined.

It's about a size to small in every possible way. You should probably avoid slim fit fashion forward suits with your more athletic body type.

Waist suppression on a jacket with patch pockets ?

 

HI. First time post.

I guess this would be a question for tailors on the forum.

 

Just received a Brooks Brothers Black Fleece "Flannel Patch Pocket Jacket" as a gift.

Shoulder and length of suit seem to fit fine - will need to have sleeves shortened.

I would prefer to have a bit more waist suppression, though.

 

The patch pockets lie over the side seams.

My question is - from a tailoring point of view, is it possible to achieve waist suppression in a case like this without messing with the patch pockets ? Or will the patch pockets need to be disassembled and reattached after alteration to the side seams to achieve waist suppression ?

 

I would like a bit more technical insight before I take the jacket in to the tailor.

 

Would appreciate any advice or insight.

Many thanks.

Hey all. Another novice here trying to learn about fitting and necessary alterations. After much reading on styleforum I decided to order a M2M (Black Lapel). There are a number of fitting issues with the suit received and I would appreciate  feedback on what needs to be altered or what is wrong with the fit.

 

I know that the pants need hemmed, but outside of that there are a number of issues I need help with.

 

1) Back left shoulder of coat. Why is it puckering like so?

2) Sleeves at the back. Why is it not draping well?

3) Front right of coat. Why is it puckering by the arm holes.

4) Is the length of coat too short?

5) Why are the pants draping so oddly (pulling inwards at the back)?

 

Feel free to point out any other issues and thanks to all in advance for the education.
