Please critique my first WW Chan Suit - Page 3

post #31 of 55
Left suit sleeve seems a bit short or at odds with balance to the right (yours).
The tie spacing is a bit too similar to the spacing/width of the suit.
I'd shorten the trousers a bit more also.
I'd go with darker shade of shoes as the suit is bold.
That's a strong suit, peak, vest etc.
-- The suit fits you quite well overall. It has a nice outline.

Not bad for a first suit. These are the problems I would fix.

1. Right chest and armhole do not fit well because of dropped shoulder which has not been accounted for in cut/fitting.
2. Shoulders are a good bit too narrow. This part of the jacket should flow smoothly from shoulder to wrist.
3. Shoulder line is cut too sloped for your shoulders leading to excess fabric below collar. Not the biggest deal in the world as you often see it even on good bespoke, but this is too much.
4. The lower back is shaped correctly. It is both pulling and standing away.

IMO sleevelength is not a big matter as it moves constantly, but these fit issues should be addressed.

I don't know is that due to the angle, it looks like the suit is "off centred" at the back.

It's basically a nice suit and fits you ... reasonably well.

You are right to have the sleeves adjusted as well as the length. Any competent tailor should be able to do that. (Unless you already have working buttonholes.) I would not ship it back for those two alterations.

However, I do think you need to have the collar shortened. There is excess fabric below the neck based on the photograph you submitted. I'd have someone take a look at that.

Right chest and armhole also are a bit too generous.

Also the waist suppression seems a bit high on your torso.

But it's all fixable.

I missed this earlier, but had to comment on a great looking suit. I like the pattern you chose, and the peak lapel is a nice look. If this were my suit, I would be tempted to shorten the legs and add 2" cuffs, but that is me.

Very nice suit teddieriley.

Ditto.

Once you get it adjusted you are going to stop traffic in it. I also would say if ever a suit called for French cuffs, this is it!

Could you clarify this Soph? I am not sure exactly what you mean.

The width of the pin stripe spacing vis a vis the width of the stripe spacing on the tie, I believe.

This is how I understood teh comment as well. I would rock that suit with a purple, large paisley tie.

Yah, I just threw on the tie for the pic. But that is certainly a good suggestion for me to keep in mind in the future.

Cool suit, and I like the shoes and tie you have.
They call this a pinstripe? How is this different than a chalkstripe?
post #44 of 55
Lovely suit.. I may have to try WW Chan. Do you mind lett ing me in on how much you'd pay for such a suit at WW Chan?

Only thing I'd critique though is that your stripes are wiggin my eyes out. All of your stripes are of the same spacing even the tonal stripes on your shirt. Too stripey.

I would take care of the pants lenght and wear it ,After a while you will see some problems go away and some other amplify.The shirt looks good. But you are very close to a magazine look.
