Looks a smidge tight to me too.

Is this still considered an 'X' and tight looking?

AAS, yes, the tie is suboptimal, but overall impression is still good.

Thanks lads, I look sort of like that in my photos in my 34R, so I might go for a 36R instead. And that tie looks too thin for the lapels.

So by all accounts, these too are considered a tad tight?  With a light X.

 

I personally don't get how he gets away with the tie/lapel proportions being so off, even though he's a stud.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Judging by the size (or lack) of his arms he seems like a really skinny guy so maybe that X is not from tight and just from the position he holds. He might (probably) have a very narrow waist.

Would you consider a 28R a narrow waist?

post #30097 of 45094

Yes I would, wouldn't you? 

post #30098 of 45094

So the only way to reduce even an etch of tightness/"x" due to my skinny waist, is to get MTM?

I am not a believer that all the X we see in jackets are due to tightness... some times there has to be something else. I have OTR jackets that have never been altered and I have a very big drop (having plenty of space between my body and the fabric of the jacket) and you can see a small X around the button. It is not tightness because a fatter friend of mine tried that particular jacket (he has a 38/40 waist don't remember) and he could button the jacket, so figure... on him it looked terribly tight, but my point is, the jacket has enough room to be able to button that and it shows a small X on me sometimes. Could be the position you are, the way your pecs/shoulders are shaped, who knows...

Certainly with MTM that problem is more likely to go away but if your problem is an X the size of that one in the photo... I wouldn't go MTM unless you are obsessive about these things.

Thank you Chulillo, you really helped clear things up.

Perhaps there is some credibility to your theory...but every fit I have ever seen from you....the jacket is way way way too tight...to the point of being form fitting. You would do well to size up one or two sizes...and then I think you will find this problem no longer occurs.

I differ about  way way way too tight. Because my waist is a 32 and the shoulder size is a 42, so in that particular area is impossible that is way way way too tight. On shoulers, could be a little tight or around pecs but in waist no way, impossible.

Trying to make this alpaca chesterfield look informal :D

I'm a 38 chest and a 28 waist. I feel your pain. I get the x on a lot of my rtw fits. My mtm have always been clean.

Where do you get your MTM from? :satisfied:
