    Hi guys,

    I’m planning on ordering a MTM suit with a friend of mine, and we’re taking a bit of time to make sure we order the correct suit (we live in NZ, so sending the suit back overseas to get fixed becomes expensive).

    The main part that we are stuck on is the sleeve pitch - I’ve come across 2 different ways that people look at it, and I’m not sure which is correct.

    The first way says to shift the sleeve pitch based on your shoulder slope - such as in this article http://parisiangentleman.co.uk/academy/the-hush-hush-topic-of-suit-jacket-fit-behind-the-neck/

    The other way is to use where your arms/hands naturally hang in relation to your chest e.g.

    Or are they just different ways of measuring the exact same thing, and I’ve confused myself?

    Which way do you guys think is the best way to figure out if your sleeves needs to be pitched?

    Appreciate the help!
