There are 9 contenders. These are all off the rack. In hindsight I should have gone for a full tailored suit. Going to a wedding next weekend thus in need of something soon.

Which do you like? Please list your top three, if you would be so kind


Apologies in advance for the shoddy quality of some of these photos. Please try to disregard which photos are better quality and concentrate on the suits... (also didn't try the pants on for many of them due to time constraints - jacket fit is my main concern)

Thanks!

Is it just me or does it look as though all the coats are too big on the shoulders?

I was going to say this, but actually I think its just the fact he has a slim waist.

Most of them fit you quite well dude! Randomly pick one from 1, 3, 4, 5 or 7.

Number 1 is the best of the group. Also, you need to get a shirt with shorter sleeves.

You are a shop keepers nightmare - trying on so many, photographing your self and not buying so much as one. The pocket square in 9 is trying it on too far. By the by never try a coat with a tee shirt, it won't sit correctly.

None: they all look poor.

Shoulder fit is a major issue for me - I suffer a bad case of 'shoulder dimple' with most jackets I try.

These were taken in about 5 different stores, on different days. I'll be buying one tomorrow, and if I'm going to lay down a wad of cash for it then I want to make sure its the right one. Pocket square was already in 9 when I tried it

That really is no excuse.

Perhaps the last one, but all are bad fitting ones.

How big are your arms? Armholes are usually cut too small for my bigger biceps so I get a pit of shoulder dimpling similar to yours. I thought it was shoulder width error, but it puckers similarly from 18.75 (way too small) to 21.5 (way too big). :\\

They all fit rahter well except for the light grey the sleeves and jacket are too short. The other darker grey or they navy look rahter nice in my opinion.

My arms aren't particularly big. I really have no explanation for why I get shoulder dimples, and none of the sales assistants I have asked about it have given me a convincing answer. But it bugs the hell out of me. Perhaps we could start a support group? To raise awareness and collect money towards shoulder research

Whichever suit I get, I will take it to a tailor to make any necessary adjustments - still have one week before the wedding.

OTR is OTR, you cant expect too much from them. Actually you are quite lucky that you tried 9 randomly and got 5-7 fit you well.
Have it altered by a competent tailor and post the result here. You will find your suit beat a lot of MTM or even bespoke ones here.

All fit you well. I second the comment about you being lucky that so many OTR suits fit you well. Curious, what size are you? You have a slim build but all the jackets sit well on you, must be that they are slim designs or you just built for them. I would suggest buying the one that you like best and that is cheapest, really. Judging from pics, I say 1 and 3, but pics for some of the others are horrible, so don't see how much this matters.
