post #1861 of 37405

Anyway, I think you should feel pretty good to have a quality, full canvas suit in the closet. Going to have working buttons put in the cuff?

I think a good alterationist might be able to fix it. But don't go to just any dry cleaner/tailor. Find the best.

Jungalo, you should go ask Despos in Tailor's thread (and ask his recommendations for a good alterations tailor since he's in Chicago).

Shoulder look clean (extended shoulder there).

 

I actually think the length is fine from the front although you're shooting a little down from the camera. But seems to me balanced (leg/torso). Does it just barely cover your seat?

 

Button stance looks at your natural waist, a nice sharp V in the lapel. The sleeves look ok here, right at the wrist (was the shirt in the last pic too long in the sleeve?). Maybe hip could give you more room?

 

But really, overall a nice fine. You feel happy, yes?

The shirt I was originally wearing is a bit too long in the sleaves as I mentioned it may be exagerating the suit sleeve length.  It covers most if not all of my seat I believe but like I said I have some junk in my trunk due to big boned hips.  The first set of pics has a rear shot. I feel very happy out of the box with it.  Very happy.  I think the fabric got caught on one side in this pic but here's another pic of the rear.

I'm not sure.  Would that be the proper thing to do or is it just preference?  What do you think about cuffing the trousers?  I'm leaning towards yes due to the fabric but I'm not sure if that would make it more casual and not work with the style of the suit.

I may just do that.  

 

I already sent spoo a pic and thanked him.  This was a nice touch for a customer to Mr. Spoo, thanks again!

um....I like ur kitchen and nice hardwood floor.

 

Here's a n00b's take.

The shoulders fit well and the top button isnt' pulling at all so it fits well again.

I guess the low button stance is unique to both RLPL and RLBL.

Pants, besides the length, look fine but what is that wrinkle around the groin area.

Also, what is ur usually length for pants? what size is the jacket.

It is well fitting to my eyes...but I wonder why your legs/pants seem short.

I would not stress about length. Working buttons are nice, but not necessary and most tailors don't want to do it unless they've made the suit. I predict most in the thread will suggest cuffs.

+1. Working buttons are a waste of time/money. They're also known as surgeon cuffs, since surgeons had to roll up their jacket sleeves before cutting into the body. (Before the germ theory of disease was accepted)

No real modern use for them, apart from looking pretty

Groin wrinkle lol maybe my junk or due to the pants not being ironed not sure. The camera is tilted so maybe my legs look stubby because of that or because they're unhemmed. I usually wear 42l pants 38 waist 32 length which these are a 38 with 35 inseam so there's a ton of length room. Maybe its a weird angle.
