    These are two Armani suit jackets.

    I'm unable to tell which one fits me, as I don't know how a suit should fit.

    Could you please advise which one I should keep?

    Suit 1: age 14

    Suit 2: age 16

    My only concern is that I'm not sure if the sleeves are supposed to be that much shorter or not!
    I just don't want to look stupid if the sleeves are too short.

    (the trousers of age 16 fall right off me, so I would have to get them made smaller, that's no problem.)

    Please advise!!

    I find both those jackets terrible. The first one is too short and has absolutely no shape to it. The soft shoulders are decent. The lapel is just :fu: and the button stance is very weird. The overall look of the jacket is quite terrible and I would not keep either one.

    Posting this multiple times is not going to help you get answers. If you want my honest opinion neither of them fit you very well. And i would be very surprised if this suit was either "Armani" or "Armani Collezoni". The lapels looks lifeless, and the fabric looks like cardboard.

    Short answer: neither.

    Long answer: experiment with more brands to find one that suits your frame better (assuming you don't want to go a MTM/bespoke route at this stage).

    Is there a reason you made 6 threads with the same exact question?

    The server created multiple threads. Don't blame me.
    Why chuck them both!? And where to start.

    what's the suit for?
    work? what kind of work?
    ceremonial occasions? (weddings, etc)
    what's the rest of your style like? traditional? creative?

    if armani is your style, the first one looks like it fits you better.

    As i replied in one of your other threads, they both don't look good. The lapels look lifeless, and the fabric looks like its made of cardboard. The shoulders don't fit you properly both look like they are hanging much farther than your natural shoulder extends too. You need something that helps build up your chest area, those two make you look like you have a very weird body type. Granted even if you do indeed have a very weird body you should look for something to help as much as possible to hide your flaws which is the point of tailored clothing in the first place.

    Are you sure those are Armani? They look worn out and wrinkled.
