Hello! I've been searching for a sport coat that fits me well, and my latest attempt is this untailored Eidos in 42L. I think in general, the fit seems pretty good, but I think the torso needs to be brought in a bit, and the sleeves slightly shortened . Is this a keeper?

Its a keeper!

Hi everyone - I ordered 2 sizes of a suitsupply lazio (42 and 44), and I have a feeling neither one is really a good fit. Even though there is a suitsupply store locally, I had a bad experience there and was sold something too small in the past. I'm still learning so I don't really trust the advice of the salespeople. 

 

Thoughts on the 44? The pants are slightly baggy and bunch a bit with a belt. Realistically, how much can these be taken in? Even if they were taken in, I'm not sure the cut is really flattering. There is a well reviewed tailor in my city, but I could use some quick advice before I make that trip and potentially throw good money after bad. I have a suitsupply york (size 40) and napoli (42) as my other suits, but I think it may be time to try a different maker with more generous cuts

Strong example why many men should not shop at Suit Supply. It is mostly for slim men, and it does not carry the full range of sizes.

Try, for example, Brooks Brothers in a size 43. 44 is also a possibility. 42 would be too tight.

Hello everyone, I  am hoping to get some quick advice on a suit I currently have to see if it is savable or if I should start shopping for a new one.  I would say I bought it no more than 8 months ago and as you can see, it does not fit that great anymore.  I have already spent about $150 getting alterations done.  
The main issue is I have lost about 50 lbs since buying this suit.  I am wondering if a tailor will be able to make it fit well for a reasonable price or if I should start looking for another blue suit.  I really don't want a suit that doesn't hang right from having too much work done on it.
Another thing to mention is I went from a size 36 to right between a 30 and 32 waist so I haven't even tried on the pants to see that situation yet.

Sorry I couldn't get direct pictures to show up.

The last thought on this, do the shoulders still look okay?  When shopping for a new suit online I sent some measurements over and they advised I might do better with a 40r as oppose to the 42r pictured here.

Thanks for the feedback. I wish there was another retailer with this much variety in fabrics in a similar (or higher) price point, but it seems like a bit of a mindfield in the sub-1000 range. Brooks Brothers always seemed expensive for what it is, but maybe there will be some discounts after Christmas.

Feedback appreciated! Getting annoying overhang at the back of this pair of trousers. Suit cuff isn't particularly wide, I think 15.5 or 16. Attached a view from front and two from side. I don't think they are particularly too short. Would a little extra length in the back resolve? It is a pretty thick cloth....

Further to above, attached a fuller leg pic..... Overall I don't mind fit just the ankle overhang looks awful to my eyes.

@BackInTheJox Can you post a full body shot? I'm curious what kind of silhouette that jacket creates. I'd recommend wider lapels for your build, btw.

After a few iterations of MTM, I have these pants and this shirt. They look like they need work, but I'm not sure exactly what. Any advice on what measurements, or anything else, that needs to be changed to improve the fits? Appreciate it.

 

First three are pants, last four are shirt. http://imgur.com/a/VOXu3
