New Suit Help (w/pics) - Page 2

So here's the MTM American English suit. The puffiness in the jacket sleeves is from a not-yet-tailored pink shirt that I really liked and got despite the bad fit (it was the only shirt handy at the g/f's house as well--the sleeves are too long!). The trouser bottoms are...odd?

Looks good. But for my taste the trousers are a bit too long. They should just barely touch the tops of your shoes. They'll drape better and leave a cleaner line. Also, now you can see that the shirt needs to fit immaculately as well for the suit to look good. Lines of rumpled shirt will show through the jacket's back and sleeves.

The trousers are dreadful. Far too long and too full in seat and thighs. They really should be ashamed of producing anything like this as MTM. Can be altered and whilst they are at it have them put a button/hole on the right back pocket. That is an old-fashioned cheap and nasty way to finish them (rather not finish) and looks unsightly.

The coat is not without its problems - the sleeves seem too short which is probably not correctable.

A bit harsh Gbr. The sleeves aren't too short at all.

I heard it put best in another thread: E-A is adept at producing very high quality suits tailored to Jos. A Bank expectations. The average guy off the street is all about baggy trousers that puddle at the ankles. frown.gif

On the bright side, these concerns can easily be fixed for those who are interested in a more fitted garment... and now Flokk knows what to address if there's a next time.

I was not entirely sure but in the first view they do seem so - 1/4" >1/2". Not entirely sure that it is taste either.

I do indeed Adam. And thanks guys--the feedback is extremely helpful.

 

I had a feeling it was bad (the trousers just felt abysmal). I'm going to take it in for tailoring this week and see what can be done.
