I have two jackets that I hope to perfect the fit of before interviews in September.

One is a navy suit jacket I got through a family deal with Empire Suiting in Toronto, and one is a blue sport coat by Samuelsohn.

Questions regarding both jackets:

  • Do I need any waist suppression?
  • Shortening sleeves? (especially on the Blue Samuelsohn)
  • Should I slim the sleeves on either of them?
  • What can I do about the suit jackets lumping at the arms (the arm does not drape smoothly - it may be the sleeve lining catching on my shirt since the sleeve doesn't seem tight or anything - what other causes could there be?)
