    Thank you Despos and a tailor.

    This was a bespoke garment, and unfortunately, it seems that it isn't well done.

    So, as it is, are these issues salvageable?

    My pad on the right shoulder has a bit of a bump. I'm guessing it's because it's too wide. It's possible to get the tailor to take in the shoulders isn't it?

    Is it possible to address the pull in the jacket? I don't know if it'd be reasonable to ask him to do that. I mean, he's an old man and a very nice person, but if it a basic issue that has to be addressed, I'll speak with him about it.

    Let me know if further pictures are necessary.

    I think what's interesting is that when I stand straight, all the issues that were discussed disappears.the pull disappears, the collar gap is eliminated. Is there a possibility it's due to the tailor not compensating for my hunch/slouch? Correct-able?

    And Despos and a tailor, you're spot on about the right side hanging longer. It's ever so slightly longer.

    The qn, I guess, are all these remediable?

    My first peak lapel suit I picked up. This is not the same basting thread as on the pockets and vents of new suits right? I presume it serves a purpose of holding down the lapel? Or can I cut this off: [​IMG]

    It looks too small and short. Try a size up.

    Looks tight in the waist. Also kind of hard to tell from the waist up, but it looks too short

    and the lapels are way too narrow compared to the chest and shoulder.

    Despos, here I have the pics of all the suits I have. Any hel would be appreciated. This is the one that I think, it fits in my shoulders well.

    1.

    2. This is the one that I posted a bit earlier, in which someone told me that my shoulders were too wide (and the pagoda shoulders), this is one that the tailor want to do that alteration of "leeting out" the back in order to have more room for the shoulders.


    [​IMG]

    This next pic is from the front. The one in the left, the white circle is where I can feel my shoulder, that's why I asked in the thread of "Uncomfortable Shoulders", cause I think that I have foward shoulder, but can you tell from a pic?

    3. I think this one fits well too... your thoughts?

    5. Next ones, I'm not sure about the fit on the shoulders, the tailor is planning to let the back out to get extra room for the shoulders. But my question is, why does the sleeve looks like that? The grey one is the same as the one I posted some post earlier.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    6. Finally this is one that also he is thinking to let out the back a bit. Also I will told him to let the waist out a bit, eventhough I don't feel it tight, it looks tight. In the front pic, I feel the shoulder more in the front part of the jacket.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendation. Sorry about the long post and the lot of images, I don't know how to put thos "Spoilers", my apologies.

    sup this is a cross post from the thrift thread but I would like feedback here as well, how to I lengthen the sleeves if they have a functional cuff? I realize this jacket needs that...
    also is it possible to change a normal roll 3 button to a 3 roll 2?
