1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Is that your natural stance? If so, your legs have an unusual shape.
    That waist is quite special. Wow.
    I am not a fan of the hovering trouser cuff(I don't want to see your sock when standing, really).
    That and I realize you have no shoes on but they do not look too long.
    The rear looks to have too much material. Or maybe your backside is shaped that way.

    I probably was a bit too hands-off, as I really liked what I had seen from them before. I mentioned some of the points at the second meeting, but was told I should wear it for a while to decide on any changes for the third fitting.

    Haha. Im not sure, but I think my legs have a pretty normal shape, so perhaps my stance is a bit odd :)

    Im not unhappy with the length of the trousers, as I prefer minimum break. All opinions and personal taste of course. Agree about the rear part.

    I was going to say the same about the pants length, good catch.

    That's very bad, and you seem to already knw the reasons why. Surprising however. What went wrong at the fitting stage? How hands-on were you? What was Mina's opinion when you put on this ... .suit product.

    This is really surprisingly bad. Agreed that you should ask for a remake, this thing is a mess. It honestly looks like they gave you someone else's suit.

    I guess this is a good reminder that just because it's bespoke doesn't mean it's going to work :(

    I don't understand how she looked at this and agreed to let you walk away with it [​IMG]

    This thread now: :deadhorse:

    It doesn't look great in these photos. But take it up with Mina, unless she has refused to alter it further, which I doubt. Tell her the things you don't like and get her to fix it. If in the end you're unhappy with it see what you can work out. Trying to get instructions for alterations from a bunch of iTailors isn't really going to help you or her.

    The more I think about it, I'd just ask for a refund. It obvious from the pictures shared that they don't value you as a customer, you should have never been allowed to walk away with that suit. And as it seems like you are a novice to bespoke it makes it even worse.

    Yeah, I don't think those sleeves can be fixed.

    I don't think the sleeves are as big of an issue as the balance. My guess is a long back balance. The trousers need a lot of work as well.

    They don't value him as a customer? Who are you to make a statement like that? You have no idea what happened. God, there are some obnoxious pricks on this forum.

    Obviously the suit looks awful but I think you owe it to them to share the reasons you are not satisfied and let them fix it to the extent they believe they can. I think it is only fair to Mina to do so before cutting bait and demanding a refund. You can let her know if it isn't fixed that you may request a refund.

    I am confused - according to the OP in question, you are about to have your third fitting.

    Does that mean the photos are from the fitting and the suit isn't finished yet? If that is so, then what is the big deal - I assume the problems were noted and will be adjusted in time for your next fitting. If not, i.e., if this was a delivered garment, then I agree with everyone else that it is a mess.

    I doubt that is a finished garment. Seriously, not even a mediocre tailor would let you walk away with it - much less NSM. The biggest issues I see with the jacket are a long back balance, too much waist suppression and way too short sleeves. If the sleeves are still unfinished (i.e. the buttonholes are not cut) they should be fixable. Shortening the back and letting out the waist should still be possible. It's certainly quite messy for a third fitting, though. Talk with them.
