When you say suit fitting, is this an off the rack suit, made to measure, or what?

This is the template starting point for a made to measure suit.

You have a dropped right shoulder. Lowering the shoulder of the jacket will fix the folding on the right side and, by the look of it, the pulling at the button.

If I am at Macy's posting pix, you can bet that I am trolling. But not this time. Too bad Samuelsons were not good on me. The guy told me to come back when Ryan is working since he didnt know squat about suits. The photos... even though I appreciate em...are not good. My photogrpaher is bed ridden so I am effed.

@vidyut
Wow, there are a lot of issues.
- Back is not clean.
- the vent is... sticking out
- upper side arm not clean
- not clean waist

Might as well just pick another brand.

That's precisely what I was thinking. If the stating point is this off there probably isn't much hope of getting it right.

If you still have the trial or have access to it, raise your dropped shoulder slightly (shrug it). This is easy to account for in mtm, and after accounting for it, you'll be able to see what needs to be done. You'll be shocked at how much a dropped shoulder can muck up.

Do this, as well, the next time you try on a trial.

This is intriguing - they too said in their suggested alterations:
"Shoulder +1 cm
Right shoulder -1 cm"

Is that the fix you're suggesting?

Noodles visits Suit Supply:

I visited Suit Supply with hopes of finding a good place to replenish my closet. I was excited about the visit because I saw a lot of suits from Suit Supply on SF that looked good. I do not know if it is just this store but the selection was limited and the fabric quality was absolutely pathetic. I felt best in a Napoli but I will let you guys be the judge of fit. I am going pass on Suit Supply and continue to look for another place. The visit was really disappointing.

 

 

Havana

 

Napoli

I like the Havana on you, the softer shoulders may take some getting used to for you but as a sport coat I say do eeeeet.
post #34540 of 37438
I like Napoli. If you like the for there's so much selection online it's great. They gave free return after all.
post #34541 of 37438
Why so hesitant, that Napoli fits you so well.
post #34542 of 37438
Noodles, re: SuitSupply. If you find a model that fits you well, keep in mind they have a lot online as Isolation said. Also, you can probably check into MTO / MTM options that they have. Napoli looks decent to me, but hard to tell from your crappy pictures.

Napoli looks good but dollars to donuts the fabric isn't great

I've heard they have decent to good fabrics available mtm

I felt most satisfied in a Napoli. It used to be the Lazio but they only carried in linens. Can anyone validate my wife's observation that there is too much room around the armhole on the Napoli? She really didnt wanna take these pix since she's pregnant and all.

I am leaning towards this herringbone.


Gentlemen, I am all over the place but it is either SuSu or Samuelson mtmtmtmtmtmt

I wouldn't want any less room on the armhole. It'll restrict movement and give you twig arms.
