Suit jacket too tight? - Page 2

post #16 of 23

Wow, everyone is obviously in an abusive mood today.

 

There are a few issues I see with your suit:

 

1. Pants too long so they don't have a clean line.

2.  Pants too tapered.  This is more than just a  matter of taste; they are so tapered that the natural line is totally wrecked

3. Bit hard to judge from the photos, but I'd guess that the shoulders are ending well past your natural shoulder . . . they are "hanging off" your shoulders

4.  Chest looks like it's bulging/gaping above the top button; probably means it's too tight there

5.  Back is pulling, it's too tight to give a smooth line

 

Sleeve length looks good, nice fit on collar.

 

Hope that helps.

FTFY.

I want to reiterate that this is not some cheapo Next or Target suit, but an 800 dollar suit that he presumably has the option of returning. Don't tell me there aren't way better alternatives in that price bracket. Hell, for that money he can almost go M2M.

Gotta agree with points made so far. 

 

And yes, coming from Scandinavia(in my case, Norway. Which I'd say has a much worse Mens clothing selection than Sweden and Denmark), one can have a hard time finding any decent suits.

 

 Everything here is marked up through the roof, and the vast majority of suit styling is "modern". Which means, a GOOD share of suits one will find in the stores, look just like the one OP has. Thin lapels, high button stance, short jackets, slim-fit everything...it's very different from the US, UK, etc. (Good luck finding anything "classic" here) 

 

There's a brand called Bertoni, that usually caries slim-fitting and modern suits like that. Last time I checked, they had some decent deals. 100% wool (albeit fused), great if you're into the modern look...for 1/3rd of the price of a TOS suit. 

 

Also, on a side note when shopping suits in Scandinavia: In my experience, most sales guys WILL push on the latest/ongoing fads.

OK, serious constructive criticism: Tighten down your tie knot. You won't hurt it. I prefer a four-in-hand knot myself, but even if you must go with a full or half windsor, for heaven's sake, tighten it down!

It does look tight overall or should I say too slim fitting. You might want to opt for a straighter cut so you wouldn't look too thin.

^this... Despos has provided the only one valuable answer so far in this thread... the rest is garbage including this...

Your tie... it's like I'm looking at Mandingo from a strange camera angle.

Also, the shoes. And I agree that the jacket is too short.

Also, gain some weight. The pants look like carrying pouches for chopsticks.
