Please advice on the fit of this suit

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Ordered a MTM suit a while back and just picked it up today. I like this suit but I think the sleeves a little short. What do you guys think about the fit on this one?

It doesn't look great to be honest, but do you always stand like that...shoulders cocked back?

How do you do a online MTM? You would be best to go off the rack and have you local tailor do the work for you. I have quite a few MTM suits and none were ever a issue and fit great.

The suit does have a few issues that will need to be fixed however, you would better to take it to tailor and have the suit fixed as there are too many to list here. Sorry about being so vague.

On some of the pics I have my shoulders cocked back as you've noticed. I have back broblems and every so often I have to pull my shoulders back a little to relieve the back pain that I get. Would you guys mind listing the problems with the fit of this suit so I can have them addressed by the tailor.

Yes, the suit's sleeves are too long, but so are the shirt sleeves.

I am very surprised the tailor did not do the sleeves either. The neck looks like it needs some work too. Maybe lower back at top? You stated that you have issues with your back and need to rotate your shoulders back to relieve the pain. This can give a different look to the jacket and makes it hard to tell if the sleeves need to be rotated or the just needs to be cooked.

As I stated before you would be best to have a well qualified Tailor look at it. If he/she is any good then it should be no problem to fix the issues you have with you suit. I would need to see the suit in person.

Yes, the sleeves are too short. Judging from your side picture, you appear to have an exaggerated lordosis curve to your lower back. If this is the case, don't take in the waist too much or you'll end up with a hump back look. Just let it drape down your back as it's currently doing and ask the tailor to address the rolls on the back. You may also get his opinion on the shoulder fit.
