Hey everyone, just got this lovely model 6B in the mail. Off the rack 38, this is my first db suit. I think it fits pretty wanted a fit check by the family (yous guys). If green light will go to the tailor to get the pants cuffed and waist taken in!

If you don't mind the slightly short jacket length, everything else looks good.

Thanks for the reply! How far down proportionally should they normally go? It feels alright to me but I would like to be more in line with standard convention.

Just covering your butt, hard to tell from photo and the angle, maybe an inch or two.

Thanks for your expertise! The pants actually are a little deceiving since the waist is a little too big on the pant, they are hanging down off my bum by a decent amount. I need to ge them altered asap. The back of the jacket does cover my bum though. I guess I’ll keep it then. Thanks so much!

Hey everyone, just got this lovely model 6B in the mail. Off the rack 38, this is my first db suit. I think it fits well but wanted a fit check by the family (yous guys). My main questions are about the chest and sleeve length. Also the arm holes on first try on felt a little snug but that sensation has passed with moving around in it. If green light will go to the tailor to get the pants cuffed and waist taken in! Pants are sitting a little low due to the large waist.

You should reach out to the sales staff for feedback. They would have the best idea of the intended fit and could advise on alterations.
