Please critique this blazer's fit before I order more in different fabrics

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I only have one picture for now because the blazer is sitting in a closet at my office, but for the most part, there is no bunching on the shoulder or sleeves and everything fits me very well, in my opinion.

It was MTM and the tailor measured me by hand and he knew exactly what I wanted, stylistically, and I'm very happy with the fit.



I'm also going to switch out the buttons for either smoked MOPs or burnished silver, like these:





Thoughts on the buttons?

Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

I think it looks very nice.
Almost as nice as that collar roll on your shirt fistbump.gif

You should post a photo in better lighting with your arms down if you want a serious critique. Looks like there might be collar gap. Are you in San Francisco?

I think the fit is pretty great as well, the only things that stand out to me, and I can't 100% tell from the photo, is there any collar gap at all?  Looks good in the back but the sides may have a little gap?  I also think the lapel could roll a little lower, seems like there is a flat spot between the end of the lapel and the top button, could be due to the way you are standing to take the photo however.   You may want to take the shoulders in just a touch as it seems like the top of the sleeve sits a little wide for your shoulders, but that could be a matter of personal preference.

Thanks! Coming from you, this means a lot.

Once I get back home next week I will ask my roommate to take pictures. But, collar gap?! Now I'm worried, shit.

Not in San Francisco. Live in Dallas, but travel to Boston for work every week. Why'd you guess SF?

First, either flip the photo to correct the mirror (it throws me off a lot) or have someone else take a better photo from a better angle. However, the shoulders look really big, it looks kind of short but hard to tell, and it looks out of balance between the upper and lower (could be the angle).

Wow, very astute observations. Thanks.

I never paid attention to the collar gap, if there is any, but now that's all I can think about, seeing as how you're the second person to point it out. I won't have access to my jacket until late next week so I guess I'll have to wait and update with more pics then.

Perhaps all you need to do is give a good tug on your jacket to have it set on your collar. But it really shouldn't pull away from your neck when you move your arms.

This.

The top area (shoulder and chest) seem really large in comparison to the waist. But maybe that's just the angle? Personally, I think the jacket and sleeves could be longer and that the buttoning point could be lower. Again, it could be the angle.
