Unsure about the fit of my new suit. Help!
Styleforum Top Picks
1. As above, shoulder is too wide
2. Armholes are cut too low
3. The jacket is too taper hence the vents are open
4. Sleeve should be shortens bit
Where did you get the suit? the garment seems to be designed weirdly, wide shoulders and huge drop.....
Good luck with your next suit
The cut is simply wrong for you - shoulders far too wide and the waist out of proportion to such wide shoulders. For anyone else the arm holes are way too big for the suit.
The trousers are too narrow and probably too long for you as well.
It is wholly unattractive and merits burning.
Thrifter that I am, my first thought was that Bruce Wayne had finally passed away and Alfred had donated his wardrobe.
Sorry, stylenoob. I'm not trying to be snarky but I'm guessing you wouldn't have asked if you didn't already suspect something was amiss.
I think you hit the nail on the head Lufty.
This looks like an internet MTM done from the client's measurements - which were obviously DEEPLY flawed.
Guy would have to be REALLY built to wear that thing - huh?
Thanks a lot everybody for your input, I knew the suit had gone horrible wrong but was having a little trouble verbalizing exactly where the problems lay. As many of you guessed I ordered the suit from an online MTM website from the Far East. I always have trouble finding suits off the rack that fit my slight build. Although I was skeptical, the price was as low as a really low end discount suit with all the personalization options I could dream of plus I'm pretty poor nowadays. Considering I am always confined in options to a handful of suits at the far left if the rack I thought I would give it a try. I admittedly erred in the shoulder measurements but the rest of the suit is atrocious even though I gave proper measurements.
I always buy slim fitting suits to compliment my build but I forgot that those are slim fit for a regular built guy. If I am buying something made to my personal measurements I need a regular fitting suit. The good news is that the company has been extremely helpful in trying to rectify the situation and say they will make me a new suit (but talk is cheap and I'll be happy when i have a properly fitting suit in hand.) You should also bear in mind that when I ordered the suit I was receiving chemotherapy (for hodgekin's lymphoma) and lost some weight that I have subsequently regained. All in all It has been quite an adventure. On a side note I have no ass and was wondering, if they make the bottom of the jacket properly will the double vent still look unflattering? I appreciate everybody's help and will keep you posted.
