    ^ I have no idea. They are not wide bodies by any stretch. But then, I am not into skinny pants, so my perspective (right though it is) may not be SF-sanctioned.

    Could be the way you're standing, but the pants look baggy and the jacket looks very slim waisted.

    Fitted jackets and full trousers looked good on Charlie Chaplin, so why not on other clowns?

    :confused:

    this actually is different jacket. i am not keen on "fit" yet. not sure what "well fitting" vs "poor fitting" is. :(

    i do have uncommonly big hands. and i would say the chest isnt laying flat due to my 'athletic" build. should i go up a size in jackets?

    These are low vamp tassel loafers, and the pants are definitely not baggy, or even full. But I have no defense on the clown front.

    Proceed with caution.

    This is always true on Styleforum. Elsewhere, it is optional and also depends on the weight of the cloth as some people, tailors in particular, think heavy clothes do not make up well with patch pockets since the patches sit on the outside of the coat and add bulk. I have suggested to tailors that they would be able to get rid of lots of old ideas, outmoded experience and hidebound tradition if only they would only spend more of their apprenticeship learning on the internet instead of the workroom.

    The workaround on StyFo to your observation is that no Donegal is considered heavy cloth on the Internet.

    there is a pinned thread, WAYWRN all stars. look at the fits there, it will give you an idea of how clothes should fit. im sure someone could write a lot about it, but i find seeing is the best way. then keep posting, and try to improve upon one critique at a time. (assuming it is a good one)

    might help, you may be effed for OTR though. might have to bring all your stuff to a good tailor. styfo isnt cheap you know. :)

    The biggest problems of that jacket for me would be the following: very low-cut armholes, shapeless torso, cheap padded shoulders.

    I would like to say thank you to you two gentlemen.
    I will start my search for a good tailor, any suggestions how to pick a "good" one vs a poor one?

    thanks again.

    my pleasure. tho gentleman is not how i would describe myself. ;)

    well, you could get recommendations, and trial and error. keep in mind, not everything can be fixed, sometimes you just have move on from certain items. certain fixes are costly, and dont really come out right.

    its a painful process you will no doubt enjoy going through.
