Just got awesome deals on a pair of RLPL suits! OTR never goes well for me....ever frown.gif
I'm at 5'5-5'6 so definitely foo.gif -sizing with a little bit more meat. (39 chest/30 waist)
So...besides the usual sleeve shortening and pants hemmed, I would appreciate some feedback to make it fit better.
The waist for both trousers are 32" but they've got side adjusters and I feel they do the job ok.

*EDIT: I think I have a slightly dropped right shoulder. With the jacket unbuttoned, the buttonhole and button are not aligned.
-maybe this contributes to some of the bunched-up fabric in the front and back?

Glen plaid:
-What's with the bunched-up fabric in the pit/chest area? Am I able to have that cleaned out from the front?
-Nip the waist more?
-Should I clean up the back abit?
-How's the length of the jacket?
-Leg opening is 9" - they feel like curtains... what would be a good estimate of a taper so as to not be disproportionate to the jacket?
-moAr cuffs ?

Birdseye:
-Same bunched-up fabric in the pit/chest area...
-Nip the waist more?
-Definitely need a lot of cleaning up in the back
-Jacket length? (I feel the glen plaid is a tadbit shorter/better visually)
-Leg opening 9"
-Not as roomy in the thighs but I feel it still needs some tapering..
-moAr cuffs?

The whole thing looks too big. Even if the chest is roughly the right size the width of the sleeves and trousers are making the whole thing look oversized, which is probably exaggerated by your height. You should probably also avoid double-pleated trousers in the future, and you need to buy Short sizes as well.

This is where I multi-fail. Those 2 suits I posted are already 38S ! shog[1].gif

Whenever I go 36, the chest fits nicely but the shoulders are too small and I get that 'divot', So I figure it's most likely easier to work on the chest than it is on the shoulder area.

And yes, I'm more in favor of flat-fronts.

I guess I could have a little bit snugger fit on the jacket for some more waist suppression.
However, it looks strangely good on me from time to time, and if it can be improved with some (minor) adjustments, I would like to continue using it.
I'm heading over to NYC in a couple of weeks and was thinking about bringing it to PS to have their views on alterations (if it's even justifiable).
What do you guys think?

hey IanGP, I am surprised with your purcahse, you usually dress very nicely and frankly the garment doesn't fit at all, it is going to cost a lot to alter it

These suits are not the deal you think they are. There is too much alteration needed to be of any value. If all the alterations were done to make these fit, the cost would not be worth it and the suits would look altered and lose proportion and balance. YOu will be better served to find something that is closer to your size.
FYI, you have a very erect posture and low right shoulder. Nothing RTW will compensate for this.

For the everyday people, it's not bad at all. However, it is definitely not style forum approved. I would definitely have your legs tapered and have your pant legs hemmed. The suit makes you look short and stocky. I would get the arms tapered as well and waist taken in. Also, who wears pleats?! (Sorry guys I'm not much of a pleats person).

Thanks for the compliment! Yeah I figured the alteration would be $texas frown.gif

I was planning on the tapering/hemming but the way its looking like, those might be the least of my worries!
post #746 of 5335
Whats up fellow tailors, i recently exchanged this suit and I was wondering what suggestions you can give me so I know what to tell the tailor to do once im there

(I see NotchLapel is in here as well, thanks again for your help earlier!)

Question, why was my post just simply passed over?

Your pics are way too dark to be able to tell anything from. I'm not an expert by any means but I just can't see a thing off your pics to even be able to comment aside from its quality.

Your last pic looks like it's just a silhouette of you when in close examination it is actually a pic of the back of your jacket. It's not fair for you to receive inaccurate feedback and neither is it fair to the expert/tailor to try and decipher what they're looking at.

Some guys have had success in clearer pictures with their phone from well-lit bathrooms or outside with natural light.

I'm not sure, but your original post might have sat in the moderators' queue and eventually got missed once other people posted their own newer pics? I recently posted an inquiry myself, but it was hidden for a couple days pending moderator approval, and by the time it was published, it was buried by a few newer posts. I'm hoping it's just because people skip to the last page and overlook stuff that is "semi-old".

 

Brighter images would help, too, though. I might be guilty of that as well-- it's harder than it looks to take an accurate photo!

post #750 of 5335

I understand how easily one can get antsy while waiting. I need to return one of my suits at some point, so I'm pretty eager for feedback. I'm trying to be patient though as I understand these gentlemen are volunteering their time. I know my pictures aren't too dark, so it's just waiting in the queue. I was a bit worried about the moderation as a new member, but it seemed to go through quickly enough.
