    Hi All: I was hoping to get your opinion on the fit of this suit (jacket). Thanks!

    Please ignore the rest of my attire. Just a quick try on. Sleeves of course have to be shortened. Thanks again!

    hard to tell from the pictures but something seems slightly off around the upper chest/shoulder area.
    are the shoulders maybe a little big for you?

    Thanks. One, i have a lower right shoulder than left and second, i think the shoulder size is fine but it may be the silhouette as the shoulder is quite structured with some roping.

    You've said it yourself. That shoulder is way too structured, I don't think it looks good on you. The whole overall silhouette doesn't seem to work very well on you. I'd try a different brand...

    I am not sure, maybe trying with a dress shit will help, really the real problem seems to be the sleeve pitch.
    Obviously if you decided to drop it, there are always sale division and websites to solve your problem.

    The sleeve definitely needs to be rotated:[​IMG][​IMG]

    Let's see the front again, this time with shirt?

    I think that may be what ad911 meant. I doubt it will matter, but while you're there...

    I guess the only real problem will be the shoulder width and sleeve pitches, firstly I guess the shoulder might be a tad wide but it is quiet minor, hence ok, but the shoulder pad is rather strong, what fit is the suit because I have rarely encountered this cut, but it can be just your square shoulder. However the shoulder pitch must be rotated and this can be a pricy job, you need to fine a proper tailor who will not messed with the roping once the operation is done.

    Can see such issues regarding the chest, skirt length and back, looks quiet good to me for RTW

    Thank you. The suit fit is the Base A. My shoulders are quite square.

    That explains a lot, well find a competent tailor to solve your sleeves, ideally one who can make bespoke suit in SF standards e.g. Jeff on Sartorial debates.

    Shoulders slightly wide
    Sleeve pitch issues
    Sleeve seem a bit wide

    I'd go for another cut

    It's less that the shoulders are too wide and more that their shape somehow doesn't suit your build. I'd try a different model or brand.

    Perhaps isaia? Have a Dustin model jacket and am quite partial to the shoulder. Thanks.
