1st Bespoke work in progress - Please critique!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Hi all - my first time making a bespoke suit - any critiques would be much appreciated!

 

Pictures here are work in progress, first fitting for the jacket. Pants not yet cut with actual cloth (currently slightly too tapered and have asked for a slightly straighter leg). 

 

 

700

 

Noticed that my left shoulder is naturally lower the right. Also here the left sleeve appears longer than right, perhaps due to the uneven shoulder?

 

 

700

 

I noticed the "wrinkles" at the inner arms and have pointed that out

From the side view, right side of the jacket looks shorter than the left - not sure if it's my posture or the photo angle. As mentioned, will ask for a fully straight leg on the pants when they finally cut the cloth.

 

Looking forward to any comments or suggestions!

Are you making the suit or having the suit made?

This is at Iris Tailor right?dont worry, its just your first fitting and Nani will sort out all those issues.She favours a slim cut for pants but will accomodate your request for a fuller cut. Ask her for more open quarters though.

looks a tiny bit tight and short.

The pants look bunched up at the bottom, but the rest is alright. The tightness may be your preference.

It's too early for a critique. This is the first fitting and where the tailor begins modifying the fit. This fitting s to assess balance and length, everything else comes later.

Looks good so far....

Personally, I would ask to add 3/4 to 1 inch to the length and 1/4 to 1/2 inch to the waist. But that is strictly personal preference.

Sorry, I meant I am having the suit made!

Hi, sorry I wasn't exactly accurate - we already did a baste fitting and made initial decisions on length and tightness etc. This is the first fitting with the actual cloth, and I believe the next one should be the 2nd last. Will post the pictures after that fitting. Thanks!

Hi terrorsquad,

 

Yes it's Iris. This is the first fitting on the actual cloth (already did on the baste to decide on tightness, length etc.), and I'm under a tight timeline so won't have time to do many subsequent adjustments after the next fit. Thus I thought I'd get a "3rd person" perspective early. Appreciate any comments on the more complete version in the next round of pics. Thanks!

What are you talking? This looks like a basted fitting to me. And, most tailors usually go straight to the cloth. Iris is a little different in that they prefer to cut on another cloth first.

My real question is why are you having a bespoke suit made by this tailor and asking people on a forum if the fit is right. If she is a good tailor trust her in making you the suit. And just be honest about what you like/don't like

Yes, definitely don't solicit comments or suggestions from more experienced members. That is not what this forum is about. facepalm.gif

Hi, I think I myself got confused with the terms given it's my first time. As you said, we did indeed do a jacket fitting before on a different material for my first fitting, as in this picture. And then in the latest jacket fitting from my initial picture we used the actual cloth (but had not done so for the pants yet because we were still deciding how tapered they should be)

Thanks Panzeraxe :) 

 

To address the comment anyway - I've followed several threads on this forum where other members have used the exact same tailor and posted pictures of their work-in-progress items, and have got some very constructive input - some based on personal preferences, some based on objective observations of the pictures which the poster may not even have noticed. I even saw a fellow member  "enhance" a picture to illustrate what would be (in his mind) an improved look.

 

Given that I got to know the tailor through this forum, I decided to solicit feedback in the same manner, and have already found several of the comments on this thread helpful. Thanks everyone who's taken the time to respond so far!
