    Similar to above, it needs more waist suppression to give the chest and shoulders more Tom Ford suit pop.

    Um ... I would be pretty upset if someone sold me an upper shoulder looked like that.

    I don't mean to be harsh but you spent a lot of money to get this and it frankly annoys me that it falls short.


    be as harsh as you like [​IMG]

    i think i know what you mean

    i agree, the chest needs to be improved to give more waist supression.. i think the supression looked better right off the rack

    The major problems with the jacket have nothing to do with the OP's build. The shoulders are simply terrible. I don't know if they are over-extended or if the sleeves just aren't shaped right, but if I were the OP, I wouldn't accept the suit.
    It has everything to do with the build. He doesn't have the shoulder:waist width ratio right for the suit. Tailoring it could work but it still won't look right. That's why the shoulders look too small on the suit. The OP's shoulders need to be bigger. Take the shoulder in more and the waist will need to come in more too. If the waist comes in too much it won't fit at all...

    These last few mirror pics look different from the ones you first posted.

    M. Fan, can you give me details so I can tell the store. Is it that the shoulders are not wide enough for my shoulders?

    Seriously, you should take the suit back and either have them try to fix it, or give you credit towards other shit at the store. It really doesn't fit well at all, and if it doesn't fit well, it will not give you the Tom Ford look you desire.

    I will. Can you give me specific details on where the suit does not fit?

    Also, have you seen the other photos I posted? The first photos are a strange angle

    Well, the shoulders have a lot of problems, but I could not begin to diagnose them. It also looks like they tried to bring in the waist a lot through the side seams, and rather than shaping it, they just made it too tight in back and through the vent area.

    He can't have that Tom Ford look with narrow shoulders. This is about the best he can get with his physique. The only mod I see is getting half an inch taken off the shoulders length

    Is that five buttons on the sleeve? (4 + 1 unbuttoned)

    I don't think it is that the shoulders on the jacket are too wide, I think they are probably too narrow for his overarm measurement, but I am not sure.

    Oy.

    On the left, I highlighted how messed up the shoulders are. I 'corrected' them on the right--but I have no idea how you'd implement the fix in real life. It's very possible you've reached the limit of RTW--there's only so much they can do to get something to fit you while maintaining the 'look' you wanted to begin with.
