    After many measures I thing problem comes from where are the arrows.

    Could a tailor cut 1cm/1.5 cm at the yallow slash? It would solve the problem on the front I guess. Your opinion?

    I do not need to change shoulder or chest, I guess at least.

    Have you seen my problem? does fixing it imply to touch chest?

    Oh no, I just misunderstood you, I think. You should consult a tailor, but from my experience, he should be able to (easily) take in some fabric where you marked the yellow slash.

    In all this, the funny MSPaint markings are making me laugh every time. especially where you wrote "here" in your other post on one of the photos.

    That was just too much. But what really gets me every time is the titles of Ernest's posts, like "I give you the price", "I have been to Lanvin" and "Too huge suit". I just keep thinking of Hong Kong.

    EDIT: Nothing personal Ernest, I do realise that English is not your first language.

    unfortunely nobody noticed the use of the "here" on the picture.

    So you thing there is a problem on soulders or waist?

    Cuting 1.5 cm on the yellow slash will spread the 2 lapels of 3 cm I guess. Then the 1 st button will not hang when buttoned

    I don't thing the problem is with the soulders so much as the waist. Ernest, you must find a good tailor though, otherwise you might look like one of those Gypsy farmers in a gang. (Serious about the tailor, just kidding you about the rest M'boy)

    Get to a good tailor. The suit is the right size for you. The problem is no the size per se, but the cut of the suit. Ready-to-wear suits are made with a specific frame, posture, and physique in mind. My feeling is that you are broader shouldered, but are thinner and have a less developed chest than the ideal model the for the suit. A competent tailor should be able to remedy this to a large degree with alternations.

    Thanks. I think your are right, the cut is not for me. If I had more stomach it would be "ok". Lanvin has a cut for grand-fathers...

    I have 2 solutions :

    - tailor
    - selling at least 5 of my 6 suits

    I will go and see a tailor

    Are all your suits somewhat baggy? For the chest areas a fine tailor would be able to remove parts of the cloth perhaps 2-3 inches. But that would have to be a very fine tailor. I suggest you go, and ask at Lanvin what tailors they use. Since expensive stores tend to have small accidents as well, and rely upon a tailor. The cost might not be small though.

    I know the adress of Lanvin's "tailor" but this must not be a real tailor, just someone who make simple alteration like cut on waist or short sleeves.

    My suits are so baggy? I do not know what to do... I will become mad.


    What do ypou think about the side picture? does the problem come from cut on chest?

    I am not a tailor so I do not know where they would remove the cloth. But it is the chest area where they would fix the problem.

    Lanvin must have an actual tailor somewhere. Even Gucci has one so Lanvin must possess one.

    I don't know if all of your suits are baggy since you have never posted any others.

    If you return the Lanvin's then you will not have other suits. Were those the only sizes available?
