I know SF doesn't give much love for Burberry stuff, but I am looking for a slim fitting suit. I normally look for size US 34s, which is very hard to find.
I've tried on their US 34 size suit and the shoulders fit perfect. However, the body is too tight. Unfortunately, they don't leave extra material in the suit for taking the body out. So I end up having to get a Size 36 and alter it from there.
I stumbled upon the Navy suit below and I feel there is SOME value in it. Price is about $1200 that includes ALL necessary alterations.
For me that would be 1) shortening the sleeves from the armholes, 2) shortening the jacket length by another inch, 3) provide waist suppression, 4) raising the left shoulders since it is lower than my right. 5) Since the sleeves are off, narrow the shoulders to match the shoulders of a Size 34 jacket. The trousers would need just a basic hem and tighten a inch.
It is a lot of work and I've done this job before with them on a Tuxedo and it came out looking very good.
I stopped by the the SF Store and they told me all of the above alterations is provided by their in house tailor and is built into the price. The suit is 100% wool, Super 100 material, made in Italy and 3/4 canvased.
Considering what needs to be altered, what is everyone's opinion on this suit below? It seems to be a good value proposition, no?
