Firstly I must say that Jason is a God among men. He was very helpful during the e-mails, answered all of my questions quickly, and the delivery was fast! It was shipped out on the 26th and I recieved it the 28th. Which is amazing considering I placed the order on the 12th I believe?
Secondly, the suit fits perfectly. The shoulders I were worried about, because I was quite sloppy about the back and how I measured them. But no, they are fine. The best part, actually. The waist is very supressed, just like I asked, and looks absolutely gorgeous buttoned or unbuttoned, giving it a nice versatility. The sleeves are simply spot on. They may look a little short in that perfectly posed correct posture position, but trust me in a normal stance they are just peeking out it is perfect. The pants are perfect, no/extremely slight break and tapered down near the end.
Thirdly, this is my first suit ever, but it will not be my last. Too long I have been to stores like Macys and went in away in disgust when the smallest they have is a 36/38, and I am clearly a 34. Disgusted by the low slung arm holes, the huge baggy sleeves and unflattering pants. This is the first suit I have ever owned and I am proud to own it.
Fourthly, the fit is near perfect. As in this is something I would expect from a professional tailor as if I actually went in and consulted them. Hell, this is something I'd expect bespoke almost. I have very, very, very slight nit picks. Nit picks as in, I am wholey satisfied with the suit and will never have an issue with the fit, but as in it is not perfect.
1.) The pants are a little too tight. I told Jason to have them be relaxed and thank god I did! But I am just unaccustomed to pants that actually fit, since most RTW dress pants hang like sacks of fabric. They are flattering and in no way bad, just smaller than I expected. This is not bad, just something I noticed. Still, very amazing.
2.) Now this is just extreme nitpicking. Maybe armholes slightly higher and chest slightly smaller. Now I don't even know why I am posting these "nit picks" because they are probably my fault. The fit is actually spot on, as you can tell. In fact, these nit picks are only things I would expect that a fully experienced bespoke tailor would catch by the 3rd or 4th suit.
Overall, I am blown away. I have gotten so many compliments already. I would have never ever thought that I would get a suit that is not only my size, but also my style. Short, slim, and supressed. All this for less than $500!? This is insane. Something like this is something I would have expcted to pay $1500 for at least, and probably a MTM program at a huge store/brand or maybe even bespoke. But over the internet!? Seriously? I will be buying more suits from Jason once I actually get a paying job. Seriously, to have a suit that fits me and is affordable is nothing less than a dream come true.
Now, off to find a leather jacket that won't break the bank but still looks flattering on my tiny frame...
