Gentlemen,

I have been a long time lurker of this forum, but only now has it been worth while to post and get your professional advice as to some issues I have with a recent suit purchase. After reading many of your posts, I have come to value and respect the opinions of many of the members here and I have tried to avail myself of that experience when selecting a suit for my wedding. That being said, I have some concerns with the results of my handiwork, which I will leave toward the bottom of the post so as not to bias anyone (not that the issues aren't obvious). In any case, I would greatly appreciate any criticisms, no matter how harsh, with regard to fit of the suit. As I mentioned, the intended use is for my upcoming wedding, although it will continue to see use thereafter on a weekly basis for business. Thank you to everyone in advance, and I look forward to your thoughts!

Regards,
Chris










So! Now that you have had a chance to see the results, here are my complaints:

1. Pants are absurdly long... this will be promptly addressed.
2. Sleeves are a hair too long, perhaps no more than 1/8 inch needs to come off.
3. Sleeve pitch seems ok from the top/front, but underneath there is some creasing.
4. Since my right shoulder is low, it is causing puckering on the back right side that seems to carry over into the front of the suit.
5. Needs to be taken in a hair in the chest, although I think the shoulder issue might remedy some of it.
6. Collar seems to sit fairly far back, such that it is not resting on my neck... not sure of the technical term for that one.

Moderators... I deeply apologize, I thought I was posting this in the tailor's fit thread, and instead I created a new thread. If someone wouldn't mind terribly moving it, I would be grateful.

Chris
