got coerced into seeing beirut tomorrow night
Sorry, the lighting is pretty bad in the photo. The pants are cuffed right now (about 1.5 inches). I'm thinking of getting them hemmed so that there's no break. The cuff looks really sloppy right now, and is too large for a 5'8" guy like me. Is no break what you SW&D guys usually go for, or do you go for a half-break?
I think the sleeve length is a tiny bit too long -- although it might just be the shirt. The shirt extends about 1/4" past my wrists. You can kinda tell in the photo.
I should have prefaced my original post with a disclaimer that I don't know shit.
I am pretty satisfied with the fit overall, though. I think the shoulders are pretty good.
Suit fits well, no break on the pants (hem slightly higher than you have shown).
Shirts you want the sleeve to hit at your wrist/palm (shortest sleeve length) up to about halfway down your palm (longest sleeve length), this is pretty much personal preference if you like your cuffs riding up past your wrist/forearm when you bend your elbows and such. Depending on where you like your shirt sleeves to ht, your suit sleeve should hit 1/4" to 1/2" shorter than that to show some shirt cuff. For me, I like my shirt cuff to hit at the middle of my palm so when I sit at a table or reach for things, it doesn't look awkward with the sleeve riding up my forearm. For a tall lanky person, this might not look so awkward...but for us on the shorter side, it does look weird. Anything past mid palm will definitely look too large also.
So before altering your suit jacket, get your shirt in order first. Then you can see what kind of alterations to do with your jacket sleeve and such so you can get your desired effect.
overall looks good
i would actually lengthen the jacket sleeve personally as that is too much shirt cuff showing for me. BUT it just might be your photo.
thinking of selling this not sure ...
I want to kill my tailor. If he doesn't say he can fix the suit I'm telling him to keep it for scrap and he'll never see me again.
didnt you wear this in a recent waywt? looked good to me
yeah wore it out few days ago to go pick something up. it's a fun piece and can be warm when buttoned up, i just need better tees under i guess something in a weird fabric/cut may asymmetrical even. suggestions ?? missed out on a nice 3/4 sleeve damir in black
that asymmetrical rick tank from spring summer.
maybe an attachment u-neck...the site has an assortment and its prob worth it to proxy if you order a few
edit: to answer your q about the silent blazer (price dropped btw, willing to negotiate ) its too long on me and not so much my style.

for those who have handled the geller dip dye sweat, what is it? is it a knit or a sweatshirt? i recently bought some cotton knits and they are just too warm for me to wear comfortably. the geller on the other hand is perfect..
Yes, yes I did. So good.
