Initial observations: - Rear of thighs, should be easily fixed at a local tailor. - Shoulders may be ~0.5" too wide each side. - Under arm and back of arm creasing. I have tiny arms so I don't really fill out the armhole. Hopefully it gets lessened once I have the suit pressed. All in all quite satisfied. What are your thoughts?
They take it in a little but I'm not sure on the exact process. I've had that problem with every pair of pants I've owned so far. I show it to the tailor and they know what immediately to do with it. I'll try to find out next time.
what is wrong with the back of the thighs anyway? the small flair near the ass cheeks? i like the jacket length. makes me want to get a tad longer length with my next basic suit. overall pretty damn good for a first order.
If I were to do this, what would you guys recommend for an athletic (5.11, 155 lbs, not super slim but definitely swimming in most off the rack suits) build and a need for great versatility in my first suit? I know I would prefer dark charcoal (or navy as a second choice) and 2 button modern fit, but beyond that when it comes to suits I'm pretty clueless.
i'd imagine charcoal in the conservative cut is what most people go for as their first tat suit. this came in the mail today. pow #52 with type 1 slant pockets (about 20 degrees). the fabric is pretty lightweight making the suit feel a little roomier than my previous ones. but i think i've finally hit the measurements i like. i feel the overall balance would have been better if the jacket was slightly longer. 1/2"- 1"?
