    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.

    The shoulders and chest are prominent, but that's the Tom Ford aesthetic. For better opinions, use a dress shirt and tie.

    Tom Ford, wonderful brand, but it is a YMMV brand.

    I hate to sound defeatist, but you aint gonna rock that Tom Ford aesthetic. No offense meant to you, but few can really rock it. Have a look at pics in the WAYWRN thread of Tom Ford suits with batwing peaks worked well. A guy called Spoo occasionally brings one out from time to time.

    Lucky for all of us that there exist so many lux brands. Why not try some others because at the end of the day, it is about looking good. I find Brioni offering horrifying fits for me, we all have some brands that just do not work out (or will take far too much tailoring to work out).

    The only way you could make that Tom Ford work is to go one size up (so it fits the waist region better) and then have a tailor completely suppress the shoulders and do a nip and tuck elsewhere. Overall investment would be $300 plus of tailoring just to make work. For my money, not worth it, move on.....

    Hope this helps. It is nice to own fine clothing, but only if you look like a million bucks in it. If the garment does not accentuate your good looks, then even the finest garment will be doing you a disservice.

    Klobber nailed this on the head.

    If you are set on TF (as I once was). MTM might provide you an alternative. There is a lot of shoulder work and waist work needed, even of you go up a size. Try many brands, at this price range there are many options.
