Too huge suit? !!! - Page 3

post #31 of 39
Ernest, I'd suggest that if you don't feel comfortable in the suits, then you should return them. We all know that the Lanvin's are spectacular, and that they were a fantastic deal. But the refrain on this board is always, "The worst bargains are the clothes that you don't wear." You will find just as good of deals elsewhere, either soon or later, and they will fit you better. Think of this as a learning process. For what it's worth, I bought a fairly decent suit not long ago for a very good price and I knew it needed some substantial tailoring. I was willing to do it with one suit, but would never have been willing to make several such purchases.

(ernest @ 23 July 2004, 8:45) I know the adress of Lanvin's "tailor" but this must not be a real tailor, just someone who make simple alteration like cut on waist or short sleeves. My suits are so baggy? I do not know what to do... I will become mad. What do ypou think about the side picture? does the problem come from cut on chest?
I am not a tailor so I do not know where they would remove the cloth. But it is the chest area where they would fix the problem. Lanvin must have an actual tailor somewhere. Even Gucci has one so Lanvin must possess one. I don't know if all of your suits are baggy since you have never posted any others. If you return the Lanvin's then you will not have other suits. Were those the only sizes available?
I'am talking about suits you see here... I have 6 Faconnable and 6 Lanvin like that. I purachased them during private sales and they even do not want to cut trousers because they have no enough time for "full price" customers so for jacket... There were other sizes but trousers was even too tight on many 52 suits (my suits) I tried. So on 50 it was ridiculious, I could not even sit. My size for jacket is 50 and for trousers 52 (with pleats) But we can do nothing for trousers because my problem was on tights and buttocks (not realy waist).

I can not return them (private sales) but I can sell them. Why would not you fix many suits? What was your problem on your suit? My problem is I need a 52 jacket and a 53 trousers in most brands. When I take 52 I can not wear trousers because of my tight and buttocks When I take 53 trousers is fine but jacket is baggy 52 Lanvin have nice trousers but baggy jackets. Like a 53 in other brands.

On my suit I needed (well, actually still need -- I still need to take it to the tailor) to lengthen the left sleeve .5" and lengthen the right sleeve 1".  I then need to nip it in at the waist about 1.5 - 2".  I figure it will cost $80 to do this at the tailor.  Why wouldn't I do this with many suits?  I would just feel better getting a suit whose fit I like right off the bat.  And I'm willing to pay slightly more for that.  This is why I think maybe you should focus on quality (meaning both fit and construction) over quantity with your next few purchases.  Instead of buying three Lanvin, why not buy 2 of some other brand that fits you better but is not as good a discount? Oh, by the way, the problem with the suit's waist was that the chest and shoulders fit fine, but the waist was too baggy -- too much "gap" like you are experiencing. Easy to fix for a good tailor, but not that cheap for me.

I bought 6 Lanvin not 3. Why? Because I have the same problem on all brands. Too baggy jacket or too tight trousers... With 70% off on suits of 1 200 euros I think I can pay 200 euros of tailoring, do not you think so?

I think that 200 Euros worth of tailoring should be reasonable for such a fine suit as Lanvin.
