    Hi all,
    I just bought a suit from Suit supply and wanted to get your opinions on the fit.
    I am guessing the jackets sleeves have to be shortened half an inch or so, and trousers should be lengthened half an inch.

    It would be great if some of you can give your opinions.
    Thanks in advance.

    Trousers are perfect. Shorten sleeves to show sliver of shirt cuff.

    Actually, I would consider lengthening the trousers a tiny bit. As it stands, your socks are showing.

    Of course if that's the look you want, go for it. But it's not 'classic'.

    Cheers,

    Thank you both for the suggestions.
    I am considering lengthening the trousers by half an inch and shortening the sleeves by half an inch.
    I am not sure if there is anything else to do.

    To be honest, I think the jacket might be just a tiny bit short, too, though it's certainly possible that's just a consequence of the camera angle.

    Cheers,

    Thanks again. It might just be the angle. The jacket covers my rear.

    You're probably right. I was looking at the front shot.

    Cheers,

    Who made this rag?

    The coat is too tight, sleeves longish but why are the cuff buttons stranded so high up?

    The trouser legs are uneven and too short generally, they should break onto your shoes. Suggest return and buy one that fits better from the off.

    I assume this is MTM? The jacket should've been cut from a larger pattern, it's too tight. Trousers too short.

    This suit is from Suit supply.
    I had a couple of minor alterations done to the suit, so I cant return. Thanks for the suggestion though.


    I will have the trousers lengthened and jacket let out in the back. Its not MTM. Its OTR with a couple of alterations.


    Yes, I see that. Do you think that can be fixed/altered?

    Ask a tailor in person about the balance. Not whoever already altered the suit. The upper arms, shoulders, and mid-back also look wrong.

    It could be just the way you stand for the picture pose, but from the front, it looks like you have lower left shoulder creating uneven look; more ripple around left chest than right. Like others said, I think you should shorten the sleeves and lengthen the pants. Also, lower back of the jacket appears to be too tight. If there is extra cloth, may you can ask your tailor to let out seams.
