just got my suit in and definitely going to get a remake. really loose in waist and chest but what really annoys me the most is this divot at the shoulders and the wrinkle in tricep area
how can this be fixed? is it shoulder measurement that's too big/small? bicep? or simply I need to request sleeves to be rotated/moved?
note: suit not been pressed.... yet
The suit doesn't look terrible. The shoulders are a bit wide in the back. The jacket's too tight across the top button. There's a little excess material in the back, around the armpits. The right sleeve's too short. I can't see much of the pants, and you can't do much about the shoulders, but if you fix those other things, you'll probably get the same result that you'd get from a remake.
Could use some advice!
I decided to take the plunge and try Indochino for a first suit, knowing full well that the first attempt would be a first step in a (potentially) long process. My idea is to chart my experience through the entire process so that other would-be buyers will know what it's like. For starters, this is a suit I won't be needing until August, which is when I will begin law school. As such, I have plenty of time from now until then to experiment and solicit help from styleforum.
First impressions: Fabric wasn't great, but wasn't terrible--about what you'd expect for the price point. The suit and pants were too short, as illustrated by the below photo.
My first instinct is to lengthen the pants by several inches and the thighs and waist (both were a bit on the tight side). As well, the sleeves must be lengthened by several inches. However, I'm unsure as to why the collar is popping up when the suit top is buttoned. I'm assuming that may be related to tightness in the chest; the top's being too form fitting.
Also, it feels like the button is a bit too high (it comes to about a couple of inches above my belly button).
Here is a side picture. As you can see, the back curves tightly in line with my silhouette.
Here is a picture of the back. There are two rather pronounced bulges right below the middle of the collar. Perhaps due to shoulder tightness?
And finally, a picture fully illustrating the tightness in the pants: Its shortness is obvious, but there is a noticeable tightness in the waist and thigh area.
Any suggestions and help would be appreciated going in to my first remake. My first impression was that the suit was too tight/small, which may speak more toward the measurements I gave the company than any thing else.
Thanks again for the advice.
