Do you consider this a perfectly fitting shirt? - Page 2

ok better photos coming up monday..

So here are the new photos, just like Shirtmaven recommended.

 

Let's not speak too much of the collar though, it will be changed, that's the one thing I know for sure.

 

Looking forward to more helpful advice!

yeah, still not great. baggy round the midsection, ditch the pocket, and it looks like you could slim down the sleeves a good bit.

Thanks! I would have never come up with the idea of slimmer sleeves.

Just a question: Why is a pocket so frowned upon IF you wear a jacket anyways? No one will see the pocket then.

^ That.

I withdraw my earlier comment about the shoulders being too large.


Pocket is up to you. Have to admit that Mad Men made me want to order half a dozen white French Cuff shirts with pockets. And take up smoking.

I'd take in the waist more. Look at how baggy it is when it's tucked in. On another note, the fit of that shirt and those pants give you that statuesque Shaggy Doo look.

Not sure I totally understand what you mean by that but I wouldn't normally wear a shirt like that with jeans. I just didn't have any suit at hand yesterday..

you are a tough fit.

this shirtmaker did a very good job on your shoulders
cleaning up for the slopes

you have wide sloping shoulders.
very small waist but your hips are wider then your chest.

you might want to reduce the chest a little
add a little to the waist and add to the hips as well.

you already have very deep darts.

your jeans are very low rise which is not helping. hence all of the fullness around your waist.

either lose the pocket or at least a smaller one.
sleeves are a tiny bit full and a little bit to long. Assuming the shirt has been washed.

Yes, you fully understood the issue. That is why I am certainly sticking with this tailor. Correcting the rest shouldn't  be a big deal. Thank you! Very helpful.

I'm a little confused.

 

Anyways, I actually don't think there's a big difference when I wear it with suit pants. The shirt has been washed, twice.

You're right; if you're wearing a jacket, then it doesn't matter because no one will see the body of the shirt, but your question was "do you consider this to be a perfectly fitting suit." I don't, and I told you why. The lower torso area is still a little too full. You can tell by how the shirt puffs out above your pants waist. It's especially clear from the back.

All I'm saying is that I think it will puff out just as much worn with the pants of a suit. I do care about how it looks when I don't wear a jacket cause I don't always wear one (like indoors for example)

 

So I'm gonna have it taken in a little more around the waist. Thanks.

I think for those who prefer not to have pockets on their shirts, this photo is a bit disturbing.

post #30 of 31

First thing about telling if a shirt is a good fit is - how do you feel wearing it? 

 

If you are self conscious about any part of the shirt (maybe the billowing the waist) then you can do better! Slimming of sleeves is tricky because you don't want the arm hole to get too small or tight. The shoulders look good, I didn't notice the downward slope until you said something. The pocket matched with that collar type is a little "farmer joe" IMO, but again if its what you like and you feel good it in then wear it! As they always say confidence is the best compliment to an outfit and visa versa.
