Can a tailor make any suit fit?

If I bought an ill fitting suit from H&M for example, could a tailor adjust it to fit me perfectly? or are there certain limitations that apply?

I've been through so many suits that don't fit me I just want to give up.

Yeah, forget the labels and get more shoe for your money.  Ferragamo make some decent shoes ("Tramezza"), OK/variable ("Lavoraziane Originale") and utter shit ("Studio").  But all of them are too expensive for what they are.  I've not seen Canali shoes so I can't comment, and I love the Canali jacket I'm wearing today. But I suspect that it's a similar picture - unless there's a stunning sale on, then there's really no point in paying for the label.

 

Read around this place a bit.  There are decent shoes out there for $200 or less.  There are even decent American shoes for $200 if you hit the AE sale or "Shoe Bank".  And if you're going to spend $500-$1000 on a pair of shoes, all manner of wonders can be yours.

Hennree,

 

There are limits - practical if not theoretical.  My general rule would be that if is a little wide in the waist, or a touch long in the sleeve, then it's no problem.  But if the shoulders and collar are wrong, forget it, it's very difficult to do.

What should I do if the sleeves of the sweater are too long? Should I fold the sleeves back, front or maybe stack?

Give it away and buy one that fits?

Does anyone know of a good tailor in the Little Rock, Arkansas area, or know of a better place to ask this question?

 

Thanks.

Blue dress pants.  What do you think of these?  Would they work well on their own and with a charcoal/mid grey sportcoat?

Can I get the lining replaced on a blazer? Should I expect it be a costly alteration?

Yes you can.  I am not sure about the cost.

Here are 2 random questions:

 

1) What's a good source for reasonably priced men's tie for work (finance buyside)? I don't want to spend up for Hermes.

 

2) I'm looking at ordering a suit from Mytailor.com. Which fabric brands and types (thread rating, silk/cashmere/wool/etc) would you recommend for all purpose business wear, dark navy with textured stripe (not pinstripe)? Budget is $800-1500

 

Thanks!

Just wanted to check in with you guys before doing something stupid with my blazer.

So I went to my tailor today to dial in the sides for my navy blazer. He said it was necessary to take out the lining from the inside to taper the sides. Another way is to taper it from the back and not touch the linings on the inside at all.

He said to do it from the back is also cheaper since he would not have to take out the lining from the side and restitch. Looking for some insights. Thanks.

This sounds right, but have him do what makes it for better not what's cheaper
