Sorry I can't provide any pointers on the fitment, pretty new to this area. Is that the navy essential suit? And are your lapels slim or normal? By the way, that tie makes that thing pop. I like the combo.

Yes, that's the one. The lapel is slim.

The good news is that the shoulders seem fine! Overall, looks good. You will need a couple of things fixed, there is some pulling on the top button and plenty of extra fabric in the back. However, that is nothing a local tailor can't fix. Jacket is very short, but it seems to fit you well. Trousers are pretty much spot-on, could be a bit slimmer from the knee down. Double vents might be a better choice too, but then again, I generally think they are.

By the way, there will be a pretty sweet Black Friday deal from what I hear!

Got my suit (happens to be pretty much the same exact suit as sloppynoob, whouldyalookathat), what do you think?
I'm about 5'7'', 130lbs, generally wear 14.5 collar, 36s /30 waist. Pictures (Click to show)

Measurements (Click to show)

Here's what I think. (planning on a remake btw)
The Jacket seems a bit short, a tad tight around first button, but a bit loose by the chest. The armholes are pretty big too (I thought high armholes was the standard cut now?). There is major collar gap , as a result of their strange supersized neck measurement. The vents seem to be gaping a bit too. I don't think I should bother trying to get sleeve pitch, I don't know if anyone has done that successfully. The Shirt collar is huge. Armholes on the shirt are cut uncomfortably high (strange, with the jacket being cut low). I find it too be a bit tight as well, especially if it will shrink. The Pants seem mostly ok, easily fixable, waist is a bit loose, and the legs have to be let a bit.
Did I miss anything, or make any mistakes? And please, any suggestions on how + or - I should make the measurements?

PS: Strange QC issue, this is inside the shirt, underarm seam. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Black Friday deal...dang I should of waited, I just ordered my first suit last week.  By the way I've been reading this thread for a little and finally made an account.  I've read some of the stuff off your website.  Some good info there!

Sloopynoob, as has also been pointed out in the "The Tailors' Thread", the area around your hips looks too tight as the single vent at the back is flaring open. I quite often have that problem on single-vented suits, and as a result I tend to stick to double-vented (or side vented) suits and jackets.

Given the amount that it is flaring open, it could be difficult - or impossible - to fix as there is probably not sufficient material inside the seams that can be let out, although it would be worth asking a tailor for an opinion.

Bump.

 

You can't just throw something like that out there and provide no details.

Last year's BF deal was 30% off if you spend $700+...curious what this year's deal is too

post #2771 of 3212
Just received my midnight blue tux

Sleeves are short... Should be a quick fix

A little tight in the mid... Will let out a tad

Chest could be a tad smaller

Overall, I'm impressed with the quality.

Press it. At first I thought there was a problem with the shoulders, but that's probably just a wrinkle.

post #2773 of 3212

Looks like the BF deal is up...same as last year's.  30% off $700+

Shoulders look wide, esp the right one. It appears it is hanging past the outside of your arm. Also, some collar gap on that right side. But the left side looks better. I'm not a tailor so I dont know how to fix this balance. Might want to post in the tailor thread.
