Hello, new here.
I don't know if this is the right place for this question, but what are the rules regarding darts and men's shirts and jackets? Should men's jackets, odd blazers, feature darts?
I'm new to this forum and have a quick question. I just bought this new RTW suit and had it tailored at several points. However, I have quite developed shoulder blades and the jacked fits too tight around the upper back. Do you think it would help if I let the center seam out? Or is there maybe another way to fix this. (I've checked and there is approx 1'' allowance left in the center seam). Thanks in advance.
Hello all. After trying on several blazers/sport coats at places like BB Outlet, BR, JCrew, and Dillards, I am looking at ordering something on ebay. I've had good luck getting gently used Allen Edmonds on ebay, so I figure I'd try my luck at jackets. I am new to formal wear. I own a unknown brand MTM suit that I spent $500 on 8 years ago, have worn 4-5 times, but is very baggy everywhere and will probably get sold. I also own an Express suit that I paid $150 for that fits well (44r) except the shoulders are tight.
And that brings me to my question. I have an athletic build (Crossfiter). My chest measuers 44" but my shoulders are too big for 44R coats. My deltoids push out the material and I feel like I could rip the upper back out of most coats. So, I am looking at 46r coats, but so far they all fit huge in the body, especially waist area as I have a 34" waist.
Question: which brands have the slimmet fit/most drop? I almost bid on a Jack Victor but found a thread on here saying they were pretty loose fitting. I havent found much else on the forum as far at RTW brands. I am currently "watching" Canali, Zenga, Hickey Freeman, LRL, and Hugo Boss jackets on ebay, all size 46R. Thoughts?
I am not a bodybuilder and do not consider my physique "extreme" by any means, so I was really hoping to find something OTR and have it tailored. Around my shoulders I measure 52", just above nipple line is 44" and just above naval is 34". I dont think I look far different in the torso than most of the models that these companies use!
I was thinking Italian stuff maybe since Americans cater to the overweight market?
I messaged this seller and they said the jacket is pulled in the middle to make the picture look better, lol. I might try it anyways.
