I posted earlier in the Q/A thread and feel lame creating a new thread for this, but seems like people who created their own threads got more feedback. Go ahead and lock/delete this if it's not how it's supposed to be done. Thanks!

You should post a pic showing the back of your jacket. With what I can see, the shoulders appear to be extended a bit much, but maybe that's how you like it.

The pants are rebelling. It's partly a length problem, but there's often more to it than just hemming.

Not sure if that's fixable is it?


Shoulders no.

Pants you can fix.

I think the jacket is slightly too big... You can probably get away with that, as you seem to have an athletic physique. However, if you have a chance, try a size smaller and post some pics.

It's a size 36S which was the smallest they had.


My chest measures 40". So I tried the 40S which was way too big. The jacket pictured (36S) seemed to fit OK except the shoulders did seem a tad off like you guys are mentioning. I guess I expected the shoulders too big comments, but thought it might be fine. I thought it was odd that the jackets fit so large.

Thanks for all the feedback so far!

Ugh, I have a jacket where the shoulders fit like that. It just irks me. I wear it (because I've succumb to the sunk cost fallacy) but its getting less and less use nowadays. It just looks really off, kind of like you're wearing shredder pauldrons or some kind of samurai armor. I dunno, if anyone can convince me that shoulders like that are wearable, I'll be glad to listen.

What brand is that? It is absolutely huge in your shoulders.

As others mentioned, the pants are off too. I think you need to add a cuff with a heel guard in the pants to allow them to pull heavily and give you a smooth front.
