    Tks.

    Do you refer to the blue jacket or grey jacket or both?

    I would not trust a tailor who let that leave his shop as a finished product to fix it.

    Apologies for the quick and dirty photo.

    This jacket is longer than I would normally wear (a little over an inch). Does it still work, or would you shorten it a little?

    I fear the low camera angle may be over emphasizing the length. Right now, I think you could safely shorten it a bit as the flap pockets are high enough, but I cannot swear I'd say the same if the camera's view was more around chest/neck height instead of waist

    How well does it cover your butt? I'd also be concerned how the top half of the jacket seems trim, and the bottom half seems voluminous.

    Hi all,

    I received my first M2M Trousers order from Luxire, and I have made the unfortunate mistake of requesting trousers that are generally just too slim - it turns out that I was far too overzealous in my measurement changes to trousers I already own which are a bit too baggy.
    I have been sent to this thread from the Luxire thread for advice.

    To be clear, I am desiring a slim fit to the likes of an Epaulet Rivet Chino (or Jcrew 770 fit) with a higher rise, as I have relatively short legs for my height. I also have the misfortune of having well developed thighs, but a relatively flat seat.
    Original Measurements:
    Back Rise: 42.2 cm
    Front Rise: 29.5 cm
    Waist: 48.5 cm
    Hips: 57 cm
    Thigh: 31.7 cm
    Knee: 23.5 cm
    Inseam: 79 cm
    Outseam: 105 cm
    Bottom: 19 cm

    Luxire suggestions:
    - letting out the waist 2 cm (total)
    - letting out hip 2 cm total
    - letting out thigh 3.5 cm total
    - letting out knee 3.5 cm total
    - decrease inseam 1.5 cm at crotch
    - increase length +1.5 cm

    I have already received some great measurement change advice from the folks at Luxire, but wanted to see if anyone here had anything to add.

    Thanks!

    Getting more friendly with my tailor as I've grown a good amount in the shoulders / chest while keeping my waist size down. Right now I'm about a 41" chest with a 32" waist. So now I have to get about a size Large and tailor down the length, sleeve length, and now body. One thing I'd love some advice on is what to do with the hip and waist, because my body is broad at the shoulders / slim at the waist / then back out again at the thighs and rear (squat legs and booty). I find that shirts like Gitman that have a taper at the waist fit me a lot better, but will this look weird on a casual untucked shirt? Here's a picture of a dress shirt by Gitman vs casual shirt.

    Hello

    Pair of pants from MyTailor. One of my last pairs were a little tight through the front (I have large thighs) so I had some extra room added to keep the pleats from pulling open on this pair - however it looks like I've got too much room in the hips and thigh, giving me kind of a rounded look. Thoughts?

    Thank you in advance

    Those are bad. Slim fit ain't for everyone!

    Looks fine with the jacket on (jacket could be longer). Can't judge from the picture alone, but I guess the trousers follow the natural line of your hips (unless your underwear interferes)? I would even add a small amount above the knee so that you will get a straighter line. I would also suggest to maybe lower the front rise, as the current (slim) waist point emphasizes the hips.

    Does anyone know a good tailor in the Northern California area (Sacramento to San Francisco) that can add functional sleeve buttons? My tailor is no longer available.

    Fit check on this SuitSupply Napoli Navy size 38L. Feels pretty good, though I'm usually a 40 so wanted to check if anyone had any tips or could spot any problems with it.

    I plan to get the trousers hemmed, but anything else anyone would suggest?
