I don't know your situation. Maybe you're ready for bespoke, maybe not, only you can know. And when you know it, you know it. You'll know exactly what you want and why. If you're not sure yet, then skip it.

If your build is normal and you're willing to spend over a thousand on a suit or SC, then you have many options. You can find a store that carries expensive brands and try things on. Buy something that fits and feels good, then spend another $100 on tailoring it and nobody will ever know it wasn't bespoke. Personally, I found great success with online shopping. There were a few mistakes here and there, but now I know exactly which brands work for me and I stick to them. It's a lot cheaper than retail. If you look around the buy&sell here at SF (and I haven't in years, honestly), I'm sure there are great deals like RLPL/RLBL, Tom Ford, Zegna, etc. going for around $1K or less. All in all, when the time is right for bespoke you will definitely know it.

I also like TM lewin shirts and some of the nicer PRL Shirts.

Dont think it warrants a question in the tailor's thread.

Maybe let out the seat and shorten the length?

Anyone know where I can find a double-breasted suit in XXS (34" with 28" trousers) for a decent price as I am rather tight on budget and I am not really able afford a MTM suit although I can save up.

If anyone knows where I can find a XXS Double breasted suit in the following measurements please get in contact.

Thanks

 

Basic measurements

Chest 34"

Waist 28"

Sleeve 24"

Jacket Length 29"-30"

Inseam 32"

Outside leg "40

Hello all,

 

I am newb here, 25 year old medical student looking to build a wardrobe.   I recently purchased an MTM dress shirt and an OTR blazer.  I was wondering if you could give me some feedback on the fit.    I am 5'5 and stocky so most of my clothes make me look boxy if I don't get them tailored correctly.

 

The jacket has some obvious divots/ripples in the shoulder area, and I know that is usually the most difficult area to deal with. 

 

 

  

 

 

The shirt feels good around the body area but I'm thinking the sleeves could be worked with.  

 

 

Thanks in advance.

I am attending my cousin's engagement party this Saturday evening (indoor event). So far I am going to wear my Howard Yount light grey trousers, with a light blue shirt, purple pin dot tie, and a navy blue blazer.

For shoes I am debating between black AE Park Avenues, brown AE penny loafers, or brown AE wingtips. I know for weddings rule is to wear black shoes mostly but is this true for engagement parties as well?

I'd go with brown shoes for that outfit - black may be alright, but black shoes strike me as more for a suit than a jacket and dress pants.

Hey guys!

So I just got back from my second fitting with SS (made to measure program), and was hoping for your advice. Thoughts about the fit / cut of this suit? This is for my wedding this memorial day -- outdoors, but my fiancee has a fairly formal dress.

I'm thinking about doing a lilly-of-the-valley lapel flower (single flower, tucked into the buttonhole) and considering maybe a white linen pocket square as well. I'm going to wear the shoes included in the pic and a similar black belt. The last picture is of the tie I'm leaning towards. I will get a better-fitting white shirt for the wedding.

The sleeves look a little long, and possibly your shirt sleeves are too short. The pants are way too long, but I assume you already knew that. The jacket also pulls a little in the front, suggesting it might be a little tight.

Thanks! I think it's more likely that the sleeves are too short, but I'll try to wear a better shirt when I go back. That's funny about the pants -- somehow in person they seemed to fit much better (one of my friends actually thought they might be too short), but in these pictures they do look obviously too long.

What do you think about the cut? Does it look sharp/flattering? I had basically wanted the Napoli in a different fabric, which isn't what I got, so I'm trying to decide still how much I like it.

Are these too tight in the arse region?  I'm thinking the back rise can use an extra inch or 2.

Gents,

Just looking for some clarification regarding fresco fabrics, specifically two-fold and three-ply Fresco.

 

Firstly, are these two different weaves or is it describing a single weave which is made of two-fold and three-ply (ie warp and weft)? I thought folding was simply an alternative to spinning in the reverse direction when plying yarn so would two-fold be 4-ply in that case.

It seems easy to come to the wrong conclusion which is why I have posed the  question.

 

Cheers,
HPH

The cut looks pretty good, but they might need to let it out slightly to eliminate the pulling. It would help if you could provide a picture if the back with the jacket buttoned.

As for the sleeves, you want to show about one quarter to one half inch of shirt cuff with your arms at your sides.

For the pant length, I prefer the front to just slightly rest in the shoe. Then they can angle the hem downwards towards the back to cover any exposed sock, and so the pant leg just covers the top of the heel of the shoe. It is up to you though, but what you have now is way too long
