Hi everyone, I'm new here. I purchased this suit and took it to a tailor once and still wasn't too happy with how it fit. What do i need to get done to make the suit fit better?

Something about arms, I want to show a little cuff. Does the arm on the suit jacket already look like is high enough? The french cuff on shirt I bought does hit my wrist and my hand meet (should it be longer)

Also, I don't like how my pants meet my shoes, I do have big feet for my size (6'0 with size 13), should I cuff the bottom? You guys dress so damn well, I'm pretty embarrassed to even post pictures up of my clothes.



also I bought this pocket square from Kent Wang.

Does this color combo go alright?



Thanks in advance

I'm by no means an expert, but the pants are way too long. You can probably get some shirts with longer sleeves and/or shorten the jacket sleeve just a tad.

Cutting out your best accessory isn't going to get you as much help as you could've gotten from MC...

jacket sleeves need to be taken in 3/4" or so.

jacket body needs to be taken in to create a better line.

pants way too long, cuff would drape better.

These are all good pointers for you (vitaminc).

The pocket square is somehow dominating - maybe show somewhat less.

Actually, the jacket sleeves look OK (maybe only a fraction of an inch too long). It's your shirt sleeves that seem too short.

From that pic all I can add is to repeat that the break in the pant leg is much too long. Not sure I could agree to shorten the sleeve almost an inch- it doesn't look that long but from the pic, hard to tell.

+1. No more advice until we see your date.

Thanks for the advice guys..


The date is the soon to be Mrs. BallinOnABudget, and I will soon be BallinOnASmallerBudget. If it were some random girl I would have no problem posting a picture of her.

But I will show you pics of my car with some car models on it. I can put it in this thread or another. It should probably have its own thread.

Find a new tailor. The job on the pants looks terrible. Are you wearing the pants at the proper height on your real waist? They should not hang from the hips. I would definitely have the pants cuffed.

Overall fit is impossible to assess without better pictures. You need to take full length pics from the front, side and back.
