First off, the responses are much appreciated. The suit definitely seemed way off when I put it on, but I obviously didn't have the expertise to pinpoint why. It seems that the consensus is to get a refund or a remake. I will point out the following issues brought up in the thread to them:
- Jacket too large in chest and shoulders too broad (causing jacket to fall away from neck)
- Back is too large
- Armhole is too low
- right sleeve is too short
- right shoulder is significantly lower then left.
- Both shoulders still low
- arm is too wide
- bicep is too wide
- collar is too long (causing it to sit off neck), result of jacket being too big
- Pockets should be besom (for more of a v shape)
- Pockets should be regular, not slanted
- No input (going to assume OK)
- Seat and tapered legs are off
- seat and crotch need to be let out
- Seat too wide
- Back rise too short
- front rise too long
Thanks again for all of the input! I'm very glad I came here and asked. If interested, I'll update you as the suit progresses. I'll definitely be reading through these forums for future wardrobe decisions.
@mensimageconsultant I scanned the forums and other resources, but ultimately took the advice of the style guide/salesman in the showroom. Hopefully, they'll allow me to change to normal besom pockets if I opt for a remake rather than a refund. I'm not sure why the legs are tapered. They said the pants would be altered after the suit arrived. The only options for the pants selected ahead of time were: yes for: belt loops, no for: (suspender buttons, side tabs, cuffs, pleats). I'll mention the tapering. Thanks!
@Shirtmaven The measurements were taken in their show room. Thanks for the input. We'll see what can be done about the pockets. It seems I should go in for a second measuring before asking for the remake.
@EzraPaul The shirt is off the rack at Saks Off 5th. I'll order shorter sleeves or invest in a tailored shirt next time. Thank you for your suggestions. Their customer service seems willing to work with me, so I'm going to give a remake a go
@LorenzL No worries about sounding harsh. I posted requesting brutal honesty. Sending them a link to the thread is a good idea.
