I don't know if you're using "drape" in the MC sense, but if you are TaT suits don't really drape. The cut is sharp and structured.

I'm probably not using drape as others define it. I just mean I don't like the way it hangs on my body. I prefer blazers that are straight and maybe a little boxy. The don't quite like the fit of the one I have. That's why I'm weary of buying blazers online as I can't try them on beforehand.

You can always take it to a tailor to get the sides taken out to make it more "boxy". The most important measurement is the shoulders, pretty much anything else asides from length can be altered at a reasonable price. I had a friend measure my shoulders based on TaT's guide, as well as took measurements on a pre-existing jacket that fits me pretty well. Based on these measurements, Jason suggested that my friend's measurements were probably a bit off, and whatever he did, the jacket fits me perfectly.

I got my suit yesterday, and I'm really happy with it. My only concern is the arms look a little baggy. Would a tailor be able to slim these down? I'll post pictures later today

Really? A tailor should be able to taper the sleeves more, but the armhole is pretty much inalterable, from what I understand.

Oh shoot.

Well I told Jason my arms were more muscular. My H&M and Uniqlo blazers never fit me in the arms, but it seems that my TaT arms are too baggy.

I thought they could only make it more slim, not take out any unless they put extra fabric in the jacket?

Most jackets (and trousers for that matter) have some extra fabric that allows for maybe an inch to be taken out, I had that done w my j crew ludlow suit jackets. Not sure about TaT though, ask Jason

TaT at my wedding on Block Island, RI. House cut minus ticket pocket. Thanks Jason, I got a lot of compliments. My wife is wearing MTM Wai Ching.

Canadians: how much did you have to pay for customs, and is there shipping charges to Canada?

I've never paid duties or taxes on any of my 5 orders. I think shipping to Canada is a few bucks extra, but I can't remember.

+10 USD for shipping to Canada (Vancouver). I did not pay any customs for mine. By far one of the best purchases I've made here.

shaft - shoulders look a little big

I received my order on Friday - a medium grey three-button, with the jacket slightly longer than house cut. I love the style, and the fit is generally very good, with the following issues: - The armholes are tight against the fronts of my arms, which is a bit uncomfortable. Jason said the high armholes are just how it's styled, and I'd probably get used to it, although it's not the bottoms of the holes that are the problem; they're fine all the way around except the front. In any case, he says the armholes can't be adjusted after the fact. I'm sure I'll manage. Otherwise, the jacket fits perfectly. I've never had a jacket that fits perfectly, so I'm ecstatic. - The trousers are too tight in the crotch. I took them to be tailored today, and my tailor pointed out that there's also a bulge of fabric just below the waistline in the back - an issue, she says, with construction, not my measuring. She's going to have to take them apart, pull in some fabric at the waistline, and let some out at the outseam to fix the crotch issue. All in all, $60-70 in alterations. She also pointed out that some of the fabric edges on the interior were poorly finished. Now, I'm posting this because I think it's important for potential buyers to be fully informed, but I want to emphasize that I am VERY HAPPY with this suit. I hope I can fix these fit issues for my next suit, but I have no doubt that I will be a return customer (I'm already thinking about fabrics). Jason has been very helpful, and he delivers a fantastic product for the money. I'm more than happy to pay an extra $70 for tailoring when I'm paying hundreds less than I would for a comparable suit from a more traditional source. My tailor suggested I ask for a portion of my money back due to the construction and finishing issues on the trousers, but I still feel like I'm getting a bargain here, so I won't. I will post pictures once the suit has been tailored and pressed.

I had no extra charges for shipping to Canada, and there were no duties - as promised on the website, it was marked as a gift for customs. I did say I wanted to pay extra for tracked shipping, and he just shipped it first class anyway, but he didn't charge me that extra and my suit arrived alive, so I can't complain.
