So this Hugo suit is 17.25'' across the shoulders (straight line from seem to seem at the back, at the widest point). What's your opinion on the shoulder fit?

Sorry for the webcam quality

This garment is not for you. You need more room in the blades and in the late mid back. Also, your shoulders are too large for that size. That's why it pulls on both top shoulders and causes the indentation. I wish you came to my store before going to this poorly made brand..

Good luck

Thanks!

No worries though, I bought the suit two year ago or so...since then I've added 35-40 lbs, a lot around shoulders/chest and back(lifting). It's time for it to retire.

Since I don't have a lot of options(very few actually) to try out suits in stores, I'm pretty much limited to using this suit as a reference for what sizes to look for online...I'm thinking about adding 2 inches or so overall.
Damn it sucks living out in nowhere

Sizeup, and alter waist on the next suit if necessary.

Also Hugo suits are crap. their shoulders are too stiff if you're built. Slanted traps make all sorts of shoulder or sleeve divots. try something with softer shoulders as you bulk up. The top seem will sit on your shoulder a lot better and not make a mini peak.

It's not just size, but fit of that size in relation to the cut and shoulder
