Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a double breasted suit for an upcoming event, and this 38 jacket seems a good fit . It's super 110 wool, half canvas. Does it need any adjustments?

My specs:
5 ' 6''
152 lb

Any feedback much appreciated.

Even though shoulders and sleeve length seems all right, chest and, mostly waist, looks quite tight. As a DB jacket has to be always buttoned, it should be modified if you want a proper fit.

I thought so too at first, but DB jackets drape differently and show folds quickly depending on posture. I imagine this could also be the result of holding up the camera. If you can have someone take a picture of you standing relaxed from front and back that would do to judge. At present, I'm inclined to say it fits, because it sits well around the shoulders and chest.
You just need a pair of lighter weight slacks that fall without bunching, a pocket square, a nice tie and a bit more refined shoes to make the outfit perfect.

The sleeves hang so nicely, and in every shot. Have to agree though, it does appear a bit tight as evidenced by the "x" forming by the buttons. Plus, how narrow are the armholes? Seems with arm raised, the suit goes with it and which I've been reading isn't supposed to happen. Good luck.
