Please, critique my first bespoke jacket

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Suit is fully-canvassed and fabric is 100’s Taylor & Stewart.

 

Trousers are ok and don’t have any doubt about them (so no picture attached) but I am not sure if the jacket is neat and clean enough. I would like to read your opinions on if there are any errors, so obvious, as to warrant a revisit to the tailor.

 

Thank you very much.

There seem to be quite a few issues here. The left shoulder from the back is particularly troubling. The right doesn't look good either. Sleeves are kind of shapeless. Overall, the jacket looks too large. Shoulder width and collar look okay. Oh, and there is red stitching on one of your sleeve buttonholes.

Not too bad, actually. My only comment is the button stance looks too high and not at your natural waist. In the photo of you facing the camera, it make you look pear-shaped.

Could be the angle of your camera, but the jacket looks like a different beast from the back (fitted) and front (pear). Quite a bit of hip flare too, personally not a fan of that. Jacket collar needs to be higher and tighter, its pulling away from your shirt collar. Tbh I see more issues with the right shoulder, in particular the absence of accounting for the drop. But that's my novice view.

Did you get this from Vietnam?

Pear shape body? If thats the case it looks good the arms looked kinda off, but could be the stance.

The pear shape is probably due to the camera angle. To me the suit's ok.

Yes the camera angle is bad, but you still may want a lower button stance. The ripples coming out of the armpit on the back are ok in my opinion, as that drape allows more freedom of movement. What's not ok is the severe ripples in the middle of the arms on the front, that really makes the jacket look sloppy. Not bad overall though.

Thank you for your opinions. Here you have a better camera angle (see new pictures).

 

As for your comments, the suit is not from any Asian country; I will let you know the origin. And I am afraid I have a pear body shape but the defect in the body is very slightly and the suit should disguise it.

 

Considering the suit is already finished, what specific alterations would you make to the jacket?

These are things that can't be altered but for your next jacket, lower button stance, and no hacking pockets.

Can you tell me what tailor you used so I can stear clear of them?

Button stance way too high for your body type, overall, the flaring of the pockets (angled), wide lapels, wide waist, etc. is absolutely the opposite of what you should do for a pear-shaped body. The arm holes seem too low and huge for me, too.

That said, I like the color and the fabric seems interesting.

Sleeve length may be a touch short, too. Generally, I don't like that much cuff showing unless I'm bending my arms. that's more of a personal touch thing, though.

Interested to see the trousers. You should aim for a straight cut on them with no pleats and in fact I'd do a cuff at the bottom to break up the roundness.

correct the suit should disguise the oddness of your body, but this suit does not do that in fact it enhances your pear shape body. Like other folks have said the pockets need to higher or altered becuase its those pockets that are enchancing yoru pearshape. Next suit alter the height of the buttons and the pockets other than that the suit looks good man. If the yuur body was different I would say the suit looks good on another person.
