Looks like a true 3 button, isn't it? Perhaps try to close the top button?

It doesn't roll. DAMN!

I talked to my tailor and he said that if he had to roll a hard 3 then he'd have to start from the neck and roll down. It ain't that simple, it sounded like.

Don't know if it's the camera angle, the buttoning thing or the fact that it's not pressed, but that doesn't look very flattering on you Noodles. Makes you look a fair bit more rotund than your other stuff.

That looks very... puffy. And I know you're a thin enough dude so it's not you.

True - I wouldn't have actually recognised Noodles from the fit. The angle must have something to do with it.

There's some pull at the button, and the button-side lapel could use a press. The shoulders look good, and the sleeve hangs nicely.

Have it let out just a smidge at the waist and enjoy. Once the lapel is sorted, wear it just like you have above, with only the middle button fastened.

Noodles, the angle is not flattering but I think there's a good chance the suit works on you if I try to correct for that. Wear the suit with only the middle button fastened as others have said. Maybe in time it will start to look a bit more like a 3R2.5. Definitely better than a black suit that is too tight on you and not a bad thing to have in your rotation until you can stock up on Formosa or other suits you love.

I don't think it is the angle. I mean the jacket came right out of the box and I put it on so maybe it's distorted here and there.

looks good noodles

keep.
post #12970 of 37482

It looks like I have a fat belly. It looks like it is pointing outward from the waist down. wtf

post #12971 of 37482
Yeah - the pictures do not look good. The jacket looks pear shaped on you. It could be the camera shot, but this is still what my eyes see.
post #12972 of 37482

Yeah I think it looks kind of puffy too. I wouldn't be happy with it considering you have some other nice looking suits/jackets.

post #12973 of 37482

I'll just dry clean it and do minor alterations myself.

post #12974 of 37482
Noodles do me a favor and stand at a distance from the camera. Everything looks distorted from this angle but so far I like the shoulders, the sleeves and the chest. Waist can be let out a bit and maybe upper center back can be let out too but definitely better than a useless black suit.
post #12975 of 37482
The balance of the jacket could also be off. What does it look like from the side, Noodles? Do the fronts hover out in front of you or lie cleanly against your body?
