    I just got this suit back from the tailor so I would really like another viewers thoughts on the fit (other than the tailor/salesman and myself).

    This is skating close to MC casual. A king of bad semi-casual outfits myself, I am not a fan of this. I think the crewneck is what's throwing me off, in conjunction with the PS. Loose one or the other. The SC seems a bit on the boxy side as well and looks "short" even though it may actually be fine, just the posture.

    It is too early in the day for me to be drunk enough for those photos to look right.

    but just...

    That was a joke about the pictures being sideways. Drunk, on the floor. Get it? Really though fix your pics.

    HAHAHA I dont know how. I am having a really hard time uploading pictures on here. I clicked the "Image" box and it took a long time. What do you think about the fit? The tie?

    I like it - maybe something other than green for the sweater - seems like too many colors?

    Easiest option is to do photobucket or something similar.

    Fit wise, it's hard to tell. The blinds obscure what's going on with the shoulders, but the X at the buttoning tends to let me believe that the jacket has been brought in too much. Pants look generally ok, but are sitting strangely on the shoes so there's not much to say. Could be too short, could be too long. Sleeves seem fine, unless your right side didn't get caught on the cuff, then perhaps about 1/4 to 1/2 in too short.

    That's all I have for now, the rest of the hive mind might disagree.

    edit: right side = left side on the pic.

    I agree with the jacket. I believe it's too snug, I would have liked the tailor to have taken it out a little more. Also, Agree with the pants fitting awkwardly on the shoes. Do you think a cuff would look good with this suit? Also not sure whatsup with the sleeves, it was just some crappy white shirt I threw on.

    Also, if I take it back to the tailor do you think I should have to pay for taking the suit out again? I mean it wasn't to my liking the first time.

    IIRC, you got some nice compliments on your fit, including at least a thumbs-up from me.


    But, TB, I'm trying to tell you that it really doesn't fit. :D (Between these comments and pBooth's random reference to the size of my testicles in the 2011 Douche threak, I'm beginning to get paranoid. :paranoia:)

    a cuff would be fine. How wide are the bottom of the pants? I have had trouble with narrow pants sitting well unless they are shorter.

    Tailor might make you pay again, depends on the shop.

    sounds like something a woman would do...


    maybe it's best that people do not post comments about your pictures... if you're going to respond this way every single time



    yes, this is how it goes in WAYWRN
