I received a lovely tweed jacket from Walker Slater the other day in 42R. Fit is fine in the shoulders, a bit tight in the waist. One or the other of the vents gapes slightly, however, causing one end of the flap at the back to stick out. If I adjust it, the other side sticks out instead. The...
I am trying to figure out which alterations I need for this outfit. Currently, I am thinking shirt sleeves -0.5", trousers -0.5". Not sure about jacket length (and others). What do you think?
I have been having some difficulty using a far east tailor to design a suit jacket in silm fit style that fits properly. I would like something from him that looks like high-end Armani. This photo is of their Soho line that fit well off the rack but I'm wondering what alterations or tapering can...
Recently I bought a Nudie grim tim Greencast 36/30 size but the waist and leg area is a bit baggy so do you think I should alter to make it tighter? I have a long john indigo vision and is 33 size. Thanks
I have just bought a suit jacket online which I quite like except for the fact that the sleeves are about 1 inch too long. The suit has functioning buttonholes on the sleeves, however the bottom two buttonholes seem to be uncut - I've uploaded 2 photos here:
I'm going to do an internship at a law firm soon and I'm wondering:
If this suit fits "well" enough or is a complete disaster
If alterations would make sense (I guess they don't if: shoulders are too wide, jacket too long etc)
I hope this is the right forum...
So I've an important interview coming up and need to look my best hence the need for a well fitted suit.
I am a 44 chest however no matter what jacket I try they always seem to be a little tight in the shoulder. Having never had a suit altered before and with a completely bespoke suit being out...
Good morning everyone!
I am currently on the search for a new tailor in the Orange County, NY area. While my current tailor is pretty good with my alterations, he seems very picky on what he will/will not work on.
I am not looking to replace him, but rather have a back up tailor for small...
I posted this over at MFA, and a couple people said I should ask here. There are more details there, but basically I took out the sleeve of my Brioni sport coat almost two inches (still shows at least a half inch of shirt cuff), and now the buttonholes are three inches up the sleeve. I'd...
Nashville is now home for me. The pace (and the space) is awesome. Jeans are the way down here...but I must have more suits!!
Does anyone know of a dependable tailor in the area? And, are there any exceptional sources for suiting?
Thank you in advance for your help.
I've lurked on style forum for quite a long time. Just a got a new suit off the rack and had the pants hemmed and jacket sleeves shortened.
The tailor didn't seem to think the jacket needed to be let out. It doesn't feel uncomfortable, and the button doesn't seem to be pulling, but...
So, i have this really sweet suit i've been looking at, but it is a size 42S where i usually go for 44s or 43s (43s is usually my perfect fit).
And i was wondering if it is possible to have my tailor alter the chest size a little up ?
I know this might have been asked a lot, but the only postes...
All, just wanted to get a 2nd opinion on this and wondering how you may have dealt with this:
I was in a well established menswear shop in Houston (ND) recently to have some clothes assessed by their tailor (enough material in sleeves to lengthen adequately? Etc.) A sales associate took me...
Good evening all,
I'm new here and excited to be part of your community.
My name is Sam and I am having a difficult time finding the right tailor here in Brooklyn, NY.
I have a few slim fit shirts I recently purchased, and I need a tailor who is familiar with slim fit alterations.
Hey, I know this question is asked often and read some post already but, I'm still confused on how should the length of the sleeve be. I've heard from retail shops where by they said the proper length should be "half-knuckle", I assume what the staff meant was half the palm? Also, from online...
I have a high instep and usually wear derby shoes. This is causing a couple pair of pants with half/full break to bunch up in the front. I like the current length in the back, though I could probably go a bit shorter.
I think a solution to this would be to get them re-tailored with a...
I was wondering if a suit jacket shoulder width was a bit too wide on someone, could it be altered and reduced? Let's say, something reasonable like about 1" at most? Most tailors will say no but I think some tailors have done it for others.
Does someone know if it's possible?
Just curious if anyone has had a trench coat tailored for a better fit. Mine fits well in the shoulders, but there is too much material at the waist. I'd like to have a slimmer fit, but wonder if it is worth the cost and effort. I have yet to find a "trim fit" trench coat. Mine has a zip-out...
I've read a few threads about losing weight and subsequent alterations, but I haven't found anything with experiences (eg, someone that's done this).
I have 3 42R jackets and two 42R vests that I'd like to be taken in your approx 40R. I understand this will also screw with arms/sleeves.
I bought 5 new dress shirts and I told the tailor I need these taken in a bit mainly in the waist/back, well she pinned/measured and explained she has to do a slight bit of arms to make it flow, now the sleeves are too tight, I have bigger arms/shoulders than a normal person and she...
