SuitSupply London for a wedding suit - does it fit?

Looking for a MTM suit in London for my wedding. I looked at the custom range in SuitSupply and tried on one of the sample jackets. Naturally the below could be adjusted under their 'custom programme' but it seems like this is the baseline.

How does this fit look? I am trying to understand if the jacket is too long or not mainly. Also I feel the lapel might be a bit short, but my eye is quite untrained. Note that one sleeve does look longer here than the other due to a watch on my left wrist and a shirt that is too long.

This was quoted as roughly £1000 for a 3 piece. Any alternatives in London appreciated too - budget is around £1.5k for MTM.

Prices historically quoted on this forum seem to have skyrocket in previous years - in some case doubled in just 3 years!

If your budget is £1,500 or so, I would advise heading to Anglo-Italian. Alternatively, if you wanted to save some money for shoes, a shirt and a tie, I would then go with Natalino.

It's not a bad start. Jacket it's not too long. Shoulder line is clean and chest looks fine. Upper back looks clean. Waist looks a tad too tight. I would let it out. Trousers need serious attention. I would size up. Custom made trousers from suitsupply are good value.

It’s a good start. You have a low right shoulder and a high right hip, causing the right side of the jacket to collapse. If they can correct for this in their MTM program the jacket will look good. Trousers could be slightly fuller and perhaps the back rise shortened a bit (they should be able to pin them up to see if this helps).

Thank you, I was unaware of my shoulder and hip until your comment, good eye! What should I be asking to ensure this is followed? The SS associate seemed to not think much further adjustment was necessary, so I think I need to give a helping hand here

One of the issues with custom tailoring is that it depends on the skill of the person making the adjustments to the pattern. Just start by noting the issue (the body collapsing on the right). Generally I wouldn’t recommend telling them a diagnosis or how to fix it, in part because i might be wrong and also because I don’t know what their MTM system is able to adjust for.

If they don’t see it, I’d ask for a second opinion but YMMV of course.
