    unbuttoned shirt looks like you're trying too hard to look effortless. button it up.

    LOL. I had to google "tyrone biggums". I like the parka eventhough the blue/yellow hoody is a bit too school boy. The +J uniqlo blue parka is the one I'll be getting and is more like my style.

    mikey, the oxford shirt is by jcrew. For $20 its better than uniqlo.


    I assume you wear an xs? How is the length on those?

    wtf, why would you cut the sleeves off a type when denim vests are ubiquitous as hell and MUCH less expensive (i.e. there are atleast 2 in every thrift store everywhere, and 10000 more on ebay with buy it nows of 3$)
    I wanted to. I wore one today under the Woolrich parka with the sleeves fully intact just for you, brother. 'Twas a Type A repro that was purchased a few years back for under $10. But mainly because I wanted to.

    shamelessly cross-poasting from mc (i don't even know where in mc to post this kind of question!):


    [​IMG]

    Apologies for the bad quality pics. I'm in a rush to decide whether to return this or to have it altered and couldn't find a good camera/lighting source nearby

    this is a bluish-grey worsted wool suit from spurr in size 36R (made by Hickey Freeman I think). I really like the color and texture and how it fits fairly slim in the body. However I usually wear 34 jackets which have shoulders of approximately 16-16.5. The shoulders on this suit jacket is a bit over 17 (typical of 36s I guess). Also I'm 5'8"" so I'm a bit concerned that this suit might be a bit too long for me (it's a 36R).

    Putting things in a list:
    • I really like its color and texture
    • Finding quality RTW suits in 34S/R is extremely difficult for me (let alone quality suits on sale; I got this one at 70% off but it is 36). I don't want to buy zara 34 or boy-sized suits (sleeves too short).
    • The shoulders are bit too wide (1 inch-ish) for me.
    • Possibly the jacket is also a tad too long for me? This I'm really not sure
    • I'm willing to spend upwards of $300 for tailoring (and I live in NYC and just a few blocks from Stanton Tailor if that matters). I know from reading old posts that altering shoulders are often expensive and not worth it and that altering length can throw off the balance of the jacket (for reference the length of this suit jacket is 28.5 and I'm 5'8)
    • Another option is for me to bulk up and become wider in the shoudlers through body building. I want to keep an open mind about this route (since it sucks to have to be always looking for 34s), but I dont know how realistic it is to expect my shoudler to grow from 16 to 17?


    So if you were in my position would you return it for $399 or have it altered? Comments about shoulders fit (are they obviously ill-fitting?) / length / body etc? Any input is much appreciated (again, sorry about the bad lighting and the poor quality pics!).


    edit: just to add some relevant info this is a stock photo of the suit

    mellow that parka looks awesome. how much did that run you if you don't mind me asking (you kopped it from warehouse as I recall)? I've been waiting for further reduction on that parka at several e-stores (all at roughly $700-$800 right now) but it just never gets reduced...

    That shirt doesn't fit with that suit at all. Pair it with something lighter, khacki or camel, or a summer material.

    you mean paring the shirt (not the suit) with something lighter, right? Sounds like a good idea (I've been trying unsuccessfully to find something in my wardrobe to wear that shirt with). Will give it a shot tomorrow.

    edit: queue 5+ page argument about the stylishness of New Balances.

    to each his own but allow me to add that (1) half the secretaries in my office wear NB when commuting, then they switch into "nice" shoes once they arrive and (2) I wore them recently to fix the fence and to sump out a clogged drain.

    as I said to each his own.
