Hey guys,

I received my first suit from Jason back in August, and have been wearing it ever since. My first 'real' suit i should say. I am going to need another suit from TaT, so am posting my current fit. Please constructively critique it if possible, would be much appreciated. Wasn't sure what posts were needed so I apologize in advance.

One other question, I need to choose a colour for my second suit. I already have a light grey, but am inclined to get a dark grey suit. For some reason i'm averse to navy blues... This will be for use in professional settings (finance).

Thanks again.

ps. I know it has been said many times, but Jason was a pleasure to deal with, and obviously i am willing to deal with him again.

I just wanted to post a follow-up on the jacket I sent back to Jason for adjustments.

Basically, I received the jacket back today and, true to his word, Jason sorted out all the issues; shoulders are dead-on and no rippling on the back anymore. Only downside was the waist suppression was lost a bit due to, I'm assuming, the back adjustment. I'm going to take it by my tailor here to have him shape it up and then it should be good to go.

Overall, satisfied with my first experience and ready to go again.

I would lengthen the sleeves a 1/2" and shorten the trousers an inch.

thank you for your response, was thinking about the sleeves as well. any other thoughts?

smahatma - the first 3 looks pretty identical to me. if anything the waist suppression got a smidge tighter with each generation. however the 4th jacket is noticeable and it looks like the shoulders has gotten wider as well. they all look pretty damn good though, 3rd one especially. the slant pockets go so well with the overall sihouette. ddoonie - i think a smaller waist size would clean up the excessive fabric at the top of the trousers. got my navy herringbone today. this is my second tat suit. the changes i made from my first are -0.4" at the shoulders and chest, sleeve length shortened with functional cuffs, and house cut lapels and trousers with 1.5" cuffs. straight out of the box; retook a fit pic of my first suit. it is suppose to be charcoal but the white balance in the first pic i took was a little off making it look blue. i don't think changing the measurements did too much in terms of aesthetics including the house cut trousers, but i do feel the difference. this is a conservative cut in the standard wool. going to order my 3rd very soon. i'm itching to go even slimmer with the shoulders and chest.

Why on earth are you buttoning only the bottom button of a 2-button suit?

Please button the other button instead, then post pics.
post #3098 of 4207
I have to agree with the above... Looks odd with the second button done (not to mention that's not how you wear a suit). It actually upsets the whole balance of the fit.

is there an option to change the sleeve pitch, i have to stand unnaturally with my arms much more forward than usual to prevent wrinkling

sleeve pitch can be adjusted in future but there is no way to account for it on a 1st jacket since everyone is different and i guarantee NO ONE will be able to communicate how their pitch needs to be adjusted. It's one of those things where it can be done pretty easily at a good local tailor but it's not easily communicated by someone taking his own measurements. The default is basically "straight" but not everyone's arms hang the same way. I just did an adjustment for someone who's one arm is at a different pitch than his other so the variables involved can differ quite a lot. And since the sleeve in general is narrower it makes it more evident if the garment pitch is not wholly consistent with the wearer's. If the sleeve were much wider, like in most OTR, than there's more margin for error on the sleeve looking straight, but generally no one wants a wide sleeve circumference.

lengthen sleeves .25- 3/8"

not sure why the back is wrinkled there, looks fine from front, maybe it's the way you're standing, but if it doesnt clear up acting naturally you can have a local tailor open the back center seam about 3/8"-.5" and that should clear it right up if it's due to any tightness on the back panel.

I ordered a suit back in September, and I've finally gotten around to taking pictures.

The suit is a 3-button in the "upgraded" medium grey. It's a pretty lightweight fabric, which I appreciate.

As I mentioned a few pages back, I had lots of fit issues with the trousers. I still haven't gotten them sorted out to my satisfaction, so I decided to go ahead and post photos of the jacket. It's a little bit rumpled because I was wearing it tonight; forgive me.

First, here's tonight's outfit.

Now, without the sweater, the customary lineup of button arrangements. Traditional 3-button:

Top button undone (this is how I usually wear it):

Jacket open:

Back, with top two buttons done up:


I don't think the backs of the sleeves normally bunch up that much, but the twin creases behind each shoulder are always there.

What do you think of the sleeve length? I have a few shirts that stick out way too far, but I think that's just that the shirt sleeves are too long. This one seems to work well, but I think ideally I'd lengthen both the shirt and jacket sleeves by 1/2".

Any other feedback is appreciated!
