• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Hi all,
First indochino suit. I had them use the teachers brown blazer fabric to make a three piece. Surprisingly it seems to fit pretty well. Any comments on adjustments are much appreciated! btw, suit hasn't been pressed yet and they forgot the ticket pocket.

Thanks!

I am not an expert. From my first look though, it appears to be too big in the chest, shoulders and arms. It also appears too big in the seat. All stuff that can be tailored fairly easily, I would assume.

I like the fabric.

To me, it appears to be too large in the shoulders and chest; I'm not sure how much can be fixed at a tailor. Also, is your right arm shorter than your left? That might be something you also want fixed, as I can't see any cuff.

Looks nice overall.
However I would agree that it's not a tight fit around the chest and shoulder area.
But overall if you were walking in the street I don't think you could pick it up.

How about you take a shot with the top button unbuttoned. It looks like a 2/3 Roll, not a real 3 buttoner. I really can't tell how that jacket fits with that photo.

It looks like his right shoulder slopes down a little more than the left - pretty common if you do any heavy lifting. Also, imo - the shirt looks a little baggy to me.

too tight in the seat and front of pants (you can see your junk).

agree with what others have said about the jacket.

From the front, it looks like the chest too big, but the profile view it looks alright. So I would say the shoulders are a little too wide. You need to unbutton the top button as well, you need to be able to see your waistcoat. Luckily Indochino should cover your alterations.

Doesn't really fit you well at all sorry to say. Kinda looks OTR (at best).

Interesting that you commisioned a suit from that blazer fabric. I didn't know they did that. Why did you request 3-button?

Seems generally a tad too big - as if they were trying too hard to avoid something that was too small.

Take it to tailor but prepared for general changes - then don't buy another one from this sweat shop.

Jacket looks acceptable. A tad large in the chest and shoulders perhaps, but a better fit than many OTR options. Those pants, however, are WAY too tight. If they don't have any room to let out (so they're not riding up your crack and showing off your junk), I wouldn't wear the suit unless I wasn't planning on taking off the jacket.
