Help! My bespoke suit is too baggy :( - Page 4

post #46 of 71

Yep, I'm Ah-muhr-kun.  :)

 

I have tried on some suits in Banana that I thought looked really nice... sometimes it seems the quality is hit or miss with them-- but maybe that's true of all of the brands at this price point.  

 

Are there places like Macys, Dillards, Nordstroms, etc in Canada?  Most all of the decent dept stores carry the same brands (CK, Hugo Boss, Tommy, Aboud, Kenneth Cole etc).  Honestly, I think if you go in there and DON'T LISTEN TO THE SALES ASSOCIATE, you can probably pick out something that will fit you nicely.  The sales reps will almost always try to fit you large (I have no idea why... maybe they get a better commission on larger suits??? WTF??)  Anyway, trust your eyes, maybe take your fiance or a friend with you.

 

You'll pretty much always have to tailor, so don't worry if the pants need to be taken in, let out, the sleeves are a little long, etc.  Just factor that in to the cost.

 

I've bought a couple of very low-cost suits (both less than 4 bills) from Macys that honestly I think came out looking pretty nice on me with some tailoring--especially considering I'm sort of short and stocky.  I just really think there's not much hope for the suit you ordered--maybe I'm wrong (and hope I am).

 

Good luck again!!  -Eric

OP, go to Tom's Place at Kensington Market to get your backup suit.

As a matter of fact I already have a morning suit, made in the country where I will be getting married.....I know it's not the best looking suit either, but I believe it's better than the one that I showed in the very first post of this thread, which if the tailor screwed up, perhaps I'll wear the morning suit for the whole day...

 

My pants may seem a bit low, because I forgot to wear a belt in the pic.......

 

Thoughts guys? (These 2 are the only pics I have of the morning suit):

Sorry, that's not a Morning Suit- it is a normal lounge suit! bigstar[1].gif

pants can't be that low, they are starting to break and pool already. But yeah, not really a morning suit, it actually reminds me of something out of a hong kong cop thriller or something. Been playing too much Sleeping Dogs I guess.

That's backup suit looks shiny.
Not a fan of gold suits.

I've got to say that it's too snug/baggy for my taste. Here are some pics, and I am sure you guys will probably agree that everything has to be heavily altered? I am 511", 170 lbs, and the suit makes me look fatter than I really am...!

 

 

 

 

You should buy your suits off the peg and not bother with this cheap mail order
"bespoke" junk. Try on different brands and cuts until you find one that fits fairly well. And you're only  going to waste money trying to alter that. Give it to goodwill and start over.

If by morning suit, you mean you woke up in the morning wearing it after the crazy night you had at the discotheque.

The suit is salvageable, but you will not get the fashion-suit fit you're looking for. The issue is that you tried to do MTM/bespoke for the first time not too far from your wedding date. With overseas tailoring there will always be issues.

But don't fret, you'll be experienced to avoid these problems for your next wedding. Just kidding. Best of luck.

Whoops! Sorry for the confusion....when I said "morning suit", I didn't mean the actual morning suit (that has a tail). I used the term "morning suit" just because the cathedral event will be at 11:30 in the morning, which is when I will be wearing the suit.......hence the term "morning suit", albeit not an actual morning suit (which I don't even really like :P)

No........except Nordstrom, which I heard is trying to expand to Canada, but I don't know what's happening with that plan at the moment.......

The HK based tailor though, is in fact not Chinese.

No they're not contactable via Hotmail or any of those free email services...they have their own domain name. Like I said before, they're very professional.....even the packaging in which my suit came, looks really high class, custom made for their company, with their own logo, care instructions, etc. Even the free alteration voucher that he emailed me looks very professional. These guys have been professional, friendly, and helpful so far.........

Up till this point, the suit is the only thing that I'm not happy with.......which is bad, I know, I know.....because all of the other things don't matter if the final product (which we pay for) is not good =/

It basically amounts to the same thing as I posted earlier, it's just that their presentation seems to be a bit more polished. The bedroom is a hotel meeting room, and their email is to their own domain name and not a free one. Which is something that's very easy to do. Have they told you of an actual Hong Kong address where their "tailor" is, and not just a PO Box number? You still got a rather ill-fitting suit, probably of mediocre or poor quality, which will have almost definately come from a Mainland Chinese factory/sweat shop, NOT Hong Kong SAR. Nice looking packaging, tags, logos, are easily done as well.

I bet if you took an investigative TV crew along with you, they woudn''t be quite so helpful or professional. The good looking suits they're wearing most likely did not come from the same place as the ones they're selling either, that's for sure.

This happens in the UK as well, although we've had a few posts about this sort of thing happening in Canada recently. Does the name "Executive Custom Tailors" ring any bells?

To be perfectly frank, it looks like the shiny RTW polyester rag-bag efforts they sell here in China for about 300-500RMB($50-$70 USD). That the peasantry usually wears for weddings or Spring Festival.

This is a Made to measure suit, and somebody quite frankly fucked the measurements up, especially if you wanted it to look like those pictured.
All is not lost however. The company should be able to fix it in the 2 month timeframe.

 

This post eliminated the need for me to say something, however, I need to post to say that!
