I recently purchased a J.P. Tilford (i.e. Samuelsohn) OTR suit. As a little background, this will primarily be used for meetings outside of the office (I work in a business casual environment). I wanted something fairly conservative and timeless that wasn't too fashion forward. My existing suits are so-so at best, and have never fit me particularly well, so I figured it was time for an upgrade. The retailer I purchased it from offers lifetime alterations, so I figured that now that I've had a chance to wear it a couple times and take a look at the fit, I may bring it back in to get a few things tweaked.
I posted these photos in an unrelated thread and a couple SFers provided some great feedback. However, prior to taking it back for alterations, I was just curious if anyone else had anything to add. Based on the comments I've already recieved, I think I would ask them to:
- Raise the hem on the pants (maybe about 1/2", or even more in the front. Not too sure yet...)
- Bring in the waist a tad
- If possible, clean up some of the bunching on the back
I realize that there isn't too much that can be done about my lower right shoulder in an OTR, which I'm fine with. Also, I realize that I should be wearing a tie since my top button is done up. These pictures were taken for fit alone, so I didn't bother to put one on.
Just curious if anyone had any other thoughts before I take back in. Here are the pics:
Thanks for your help, very much appreciated!
