Those look great! If you want to nitpick, the jacket could be a tiny bit longer, the gorge a tiny bit lower, the lapels a tiny bit wider, the chest a little roomier, and perhaps the buttoning point a tiny bit lower as well, but overall that suit fits you very well! You could go for roped shoulders as well, but the natural ones don't look bad either.

 

It's more down to stylistic changes than improving the fit, and if you're happy with the slim 1960s/madmen look you wouldn't have to change a single thing. The jacket and trousers are both equally slim, and look congruent. Why do you prefer the white one over these navy/grey ones? 

 

If you want to use Luxire in the future, I'd send them this navy suit. The small changes you might want to make to the navy one will be much easier for Luxire to interpret than the big changes you'd have to make to your white suit. You could even go to a local tailor first and ask them if there would be a way to make the trousers drape better while keeping them slim, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. You should've shown these suits to begin with, would've saved you lots of time!

SVB, I think you just need to find a tailor who can help you with the drape of your pants. The rest seems fine.

  • My pants were fitting ill due to a forward hip posture. I've been doing stretches to alleviate it and now my trousers fit better.
  • I was extremely hunched over and had rounded shoulders, which caused my jackets to fit badly. I strengthened my back, stretched my pecs and a did a couple of other exercises. It's still not perfect, but much better now -> Jackets fit much better.
  • Had a dropped shoulder. Did stretches and exercises to correct it. It's still slightly dropped, but not very noticeable. -> natural shoulder jackets fit much better now.
  • I'm currently working on fixing my forward neck posture and correcting certain other imbalances.

Post the stretches, I'm interested

FWIW I also think SVB looks great in those suits.

We're talking past each other at this point. Please feel free to resume discussion of neat ties and body mass index numbers.

There's no chance you've never been told you look like Thom Yorke. Just throwing that out there. It has nothing to do with anything.

@StanleyVanBuren , I like your navy hopsack suit too.

 

You just wrote "at this point we are talking past each other", which I assume to mean that the positive reactions to your navy suit are neither interesting nor useful to you.

 

Would I be right in assuming that the reason for this is that you are more focused on what can be done with the cream suit to make it fit better?

 

If that's the case, I'm really left scratching my head. What is it about that cream suit that appeals to you so much? To my eye (and, I'm guessing, many others here too), it's just not a good suit for you. It doesn't fit well, it's not flattering, the cut is dated, those straight-cut pants look like a pair of postage tubes...etc etc.

 

I'm not the first to say this. Put the cream suit back in the closet and look again at your navy hopsack suit. It fits well, it flatters your proportions, and with a small tweak here and there it would be just about perfect. Yes, the trousers hang less than ideally, but like the others say, a good tailor could fix that - either by altering the existing trousers, or making up a new pair for you with suitable modifications.

 

It's true that we are not directly addressing the question you asked, but it's also true that you appear not to be interested in the advice we are giving. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Don't like the quasi swan neck shape. Much prefer my somewhat similar Ladbrokes.
