    Yes i think that the suit is a little too small for you. In the future try a size bigger. In fact if you sit at a desk probably you'll not be in comfort.

    Nope, not MTM, bespoke. Perhaps you understand my frustration, that was the last of the cloth I'd purchased too, I'd been told 2.5yds would be enough for my jacket so I bought five for two. Perhaps it would have been had he made it in my size, but I can't even get someone else to re-make it now.

    The lapels on my NSM are just a little bit user 4" so its pretty much just 4", you go for 4.5 then thats going into TF territory. Also with NSM its a very high gorge almost near the top of your shoulder, so a little bit higher than the ones you posted.

    FOR ALLYOUZOMBIES

    You are tall 6.1, so you can't wear a regular size. If you see Brooks brothers size chart or Jos Bank size chart or others, you will see that you must wear tall size, not extra tall, not regular. If your shoulders are narrow you will have more room and more comfort.
    But buy a regular suit as one above is a "crime".

    Hi all,

    I just purchased my first MTM suit. Can you please let me know what needs to be altered?
    This suit will be for a wedding and work.
    My initial thought is that the suit is small. The sleeves are short, my shoulders are a little tight, the pants are tight in the hamstrings, but the butt is saggy. How does one remedy the saggy butt/tight quads?
    Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated! I apologize in advance for the poor quality pictures.

    Hi all,

    I just got this suit RTW and I am taking it to the tailor next week to make the adjustments. Any criticism or advice you can give me would be really helpful. I am sorry about the shirt cuffs, but I only had one with short sleeves when I took the pictures. Thank you in advance for your help.

    ok yy
    who measured you/? wish you had buttoned the shirt collar.
    usually the lapel style on m2m are their default style. unless you give them an actual paper pattern.
    for the width try a four inch width see how you like it.
    you have a left low shoulder and a left high hip. see how the rt vent hangs straight and the left vent gaps.
    those rolls at the back tell us that the top of the back needs to be shortened.
    that picture shows us that you cant fly.
    but it does show that the chest circumference is large. most of which is at the sides.
    also the armholes are too deep.
    the blade area is too large. the left is very much so, cant see the right its in a shadow.
    cant see the trouser fit its all a blur. if you shorten the rise in back the bottoms will kick out
    backwards more than do now. see the bottoms at the heel. .

    look at the tutorials to help you understand.

    that pesky roll below the collar.
    do i have a low shoulder.
    how to cut a low shoulder.
    got a high hip.

    I bought a pair of tan/khaki chinos from Banana Republic, and I have a suit jacket that I would like input on. I don't intend to wear them together but easier to photos together.

    Also, I believe this belt is too long. I was thinking that I would chop a couple inches off of it.

    ok tp
    the suit balances well, its a bit short but not for some of todays styles. this is BBs trad style
    adding darts would not do much , and could end up a tragedy leave it alone.
    you could try the under arm seam.
    also you could have the sleeves rotated.

    the sport coat is very short can you return it?

    Thanks! Could you clarify what you mean by the armhole being too deep? They are too high up?
    Also, does the sleeve pitch need some adjustment? How?

    its not an easy job but it can be done. if the tailor is good.
    in the states it will be costly. in HK it should be cheaper.
