Is it considered rude to not buy a suit after getting help from a sales associate/tailor trying on many suits?

I have a fair number where the interlining doesn't go all the way down, though most still have a lining in the tip. Not all though- I have a Polo tie that's constructed almost exactly like that. It's also not a grenadine, so you can't see the interlining through the fabric. I presume that that's only really visible with flash...

Just picked up my first MTM suit. Super 150s Navy blue. Sorry camera phone pic.

 

height: 5'8-5'9.

33-34 waist

OTR I usually fit in a 40R slims suits. Sometimes can pull off 38R non slim..

 

A have a decent V shape/traps from working out aka pullups/deadlifts. The suit fits great everywhere but i'm questioning the shoulder fitment as it looks a bit odd. When I brought it up with the tailor said he gave me a bit more shoulder room because my shoulders are very broad.

 

Are the shoulders too whack esp. for an MTM full canvas suit?

Pingu,

Are you shopping at a department store in the States?  If so, the salesman may treat you like you have been rude for wasting his time- since they work on commission or at least receive bonus pay for meeting their monthly sales quota.

However, if you didn't find anything that you liked you are in no way obliged to spend your money.  As long as you are polite and treat the salesman with respect you have not been rude- rather, you have been discerning.

Looking for a jacket similar to Jamie Foxx's in Django Unchained.

Sort of blazer made of cotton.

You should post this in the tailor and alterations thread and get some responses from tailors, but it looks that there are many issues with this suit, however with these poor photos it is hard to tell for sure.

The shoulders appear to be overly padded and not fit to your shoulders.  A touch of Hammertime by the look of it.  I'd take it back and ask to have them try again. 

If you have big traps from your workouts it could cause the jacket shoulders to appear too large- but if NFL players can be fitted properly, so can you. 

If you are paying MTM prices you shouldn't accept OTR fit.  If they can't help you maybe seek out a reputable tailor in your area and see if they can get it fitting properly. 

Good luck!

You could take cover from mortar fire under those shoulders.

Which cloth do you think is a better value for my bespoke suit in midnight blue? They are only USD 40 apart. First photo is from Dormeuil, then H&S (the folded swatch), and finally VBC.





 

This will be my only bespoke suit for at least another year. I will probably wear it bi-weekly only. I have 2 other rtw, but ill-fitting, suits in black. I'm in a bit of a rush to get the suit out and haven't had time to read up in depth on fabrics. Just wondering if there was a general consensus which mill was better.

What do I call, and how do I search for, a rougher, dark, slim wool pant somewhat like these Gap x Ovadia & Sons pants SF member simplerman* is wearing? (IE not Super XX whatevers, I think.) I might want them higher quality than what I read off on Gap's fabric listing, which have too much polyester for my taste.   Does anyone have any brands to recommend that sell something this for less than $200 retail?

What would be an alternative to Allen Edmonds Park Avenue?  They hurt my feet.  Looking for a black lace up without frilly or ornate details.
