Getting my Ludlow suit tailored. The guys that marked the alterations for me in the local J. Crew store said they were impressed how spot-on the fit was even without tailoring. I don't need to do anything to the jacket except, out of personal preference, taking the sleeves up about 1/4 inch to show off more sleeve. The pants were puddling just a bit so the inseam is going up about an inch or so, but the waist and the fit throughout is perfect, nice and slim without being overly tight.
I am going to wear this suit to death. This is not hanging in the back of the closet for special occasions. I am planning on wearing this at least a couple of times to work just for the hell of it.
I have an ancient suit that I got in the 90s in what was regarded as a top tier department store. My God, what a box. Either I really was a lot bigger then (I have lost some weight but I can't believe I was ever huge as this suit would have you believe). The lapels are aboutn 4 inches wide, there's not taper in the waist, and you could almost fit two of me in the pants.I can't believe I wore that suit to job interviews and still got the job!
