Dragon Inside Suits

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I saw the ad on here. I like some of the styles, but the lack of proper tailoring on the models and the fact that many of them were photographed with seriously sloppy tie knots gives me pause...

Did anyone involved with these suit fittings and photos have any idea about fit?


post #3 of 27
Doubtless no one was involved in fit or ties because the illustrations reflect how little company knows about tailoring. Yet again confirms how such offers are best avoided.

Not to mention that these are mail order!

It looks like pretty amateur photography in general.  The poses, back drops, and lighting, are all pretty walk of the mill.  Not run; walk.

 

Pretty terrible fit on all of the models, and yeah, especially visible from the back.  Though, that is the trend; making suits tight around the waist, and passing it off as waist suppression.

All of the jackets seem cut too short as well.

The lengths look good to me, but I do like my jackets a trifle shorter, because it makes me look a little bit taller.  It has to be done right, though; it needs to nearly imperceptible except on very close inspection.

 

Short jackets are currently quite fashionable, too, so it may simply be a case of responding to demand, more than a sin of ignorance.

Considering the way they fit in back, I am guessing ignorance.

Sabir did a review on them and he's also a member on SF.

I'm new here. Can you guys point out the problems with the tailoring that you see?

 

As far as the sloppy ties, I'm assuming you are referring to the larger knots, right?

It's not the large knots, but look how they are not pulled all the way up to the collar.


There are too many tailoring issues to go into. Most blatantly, look at how the it fits on the back....that huge gap hanging off the neck. It should fit flush right up to the shirt collar.





The fact that they would fit suits so poorly to their own models makes me very concerned about their abilities to tailor. As stated above, they could not even be bothered to make sure the tie knots looked sharp.

And these pants are hemmed way too high...that is one of the most-basic tailoring points that even a non-professional can pull off. And note the bottom button of the vest is done up.

I wouldn't say way too high, but about half to 3/4" above where preference ends, and wrong begins.

I like minimal break.  My tux pants have no break.
