Noodles Suit Rebuilding Project
Suit #1 - RLBL 40R
KEEP OR SELL?

post #8733 of 37405
I see some shoulder divot and possible lapel bowing...hard to tell...bad lighting.

Suit #2 - Samsung Galaxy Suit (aka the wedding suit).
This one will not be for sale for sentimental reasons.
The question is I want to move the buttons around. What happens to the button holes???
Also, I want to lengthen the sleeves and the jacket length.

Am I seeing pear shape effect?

Please ditch the damn cargos and put on a proper shirt, otherwise no meaningful opinions can be formed.

Kthnx!

Doh!

By all means keep the Samsung suit for its sentimental value, but don't throw any alterations money at it. Buttoning point is too high, and lengthening the jacket will only make this look even more obvious.

 

The RLBL is ok. Unexceptional, but wearable. OTOH it's a well-known label and could probably be offloaded without too much difficulty.

1.  Sell it.  The skinny lapels don't suit you.

 

2.  Leave the buttons alone, let it out a touch between your lower chest and waist, and with a more relaxed fit it might just hang better.

 

3.  Give away all the cargo pants, and always wear a proper shirt, or at worst a polo, unless you're exercising.

Of these things, you may be able to lengthen the sleeves if they left extra material. You can't move the buttons, and it's unlikely that there's extra cloth in the hem to accommodate lengthening (and that would, as mentioned, accentuate the high buttoning point). Leave it be.

Also, I kept my wedding suit for more than ten years, but ultimately, I decided that it didn't fit well. I never wore it, so I donated it. You may eventually reach this same conclusion, but I certainly understand why you aren't there now. smile.gif

Looking for my next Formosa...

The description says 11oz flannel. Is this for cold weather only or for 3 seasons? Sorry for the dumb question.

This seems to answer the question.

@The Noodles, at least you can still wear your wedding suit. I was so stupid to have a bespoke brown (!!!) tuxedo made, which means I will never be able to wear it again... A major waste of $$$ :(
