    I don't know many suits where you'll be able to raise your arms to shoulder height while keeping it buttoned, and not have some sort of tightness. That may be my ignorance, but it seems like if you can move reasonably well with it unbuttoned and shake hands comfortably with it buttoned, then you're fine.

      A little late to the party here, but might also be worth nipping the sides a touch in addition to shortening the sleeves. Wouldn't take much, but the fit from the front looks a little loose/shapeless as it is here. Both minor alterations that will make a huge difference overall.

          Hey everyone.

          Just got some new trousers and a blue hopsack blazer from spier Mackay.

          Not sure on the blazer fit. I feel like it might be too long...but it might just be in my head. It's a 3/2 roll collar.

          Trousers are spot on. Just need to be hemmed. Sleeves definitely need to be done on blazer.

          Part of my concern is that the sleeves will need to be altered into where the buttons are. (Non functional but made to appear like they are)

          Thanks!

              What do you think of that top button? I like the sweater and fit overall, but that top button looks a bit weird unbuttoned cause of the open loop hanging off the shawl.

                Does anyone actually remember to stuff your jacket pockets with all your phones and whatnot while you are at the tailor?

                      OCBD fit

                      Long time reader, first time poster. This place is a wealth of information, so thanks to everyone on here!

                      Like many folks, I've struggled to find well fitting OTR dress shirts and OCBD's. Recently I ordered from Charles Tyrwhitt and would like the opinion of the masses on how it fits. Attached are pictures - what are your thoughts? Sorry or the wrinkles - I haven't yet ironed it. Thanks ahead of time!

                        Seems like the chest area is a little tight but it looks like a good overall fit for OTR. If you are going to wear them tucked in, post some pictures of that as fit tucked in will look different.

                            Thanks. I picked it up and really like it so far. Fit is quite good and the green is a great shade.

                            It's from Simons, a Canadian store. But I believe they ship to US... www.simons.ca

                            Another shot of it post-purchase:

                              Thank you, I appreciate the quick feedback. I can definitely post pics later today with the shirt tucked in.

                              I too wonder about the chest being a little snug. The only other option is the Spier and Mackay OCBD's that I found, which would get me about an extra 2" in the chest and 1" at the waste. I'm a bit concerned 2 inches will be too much, but maybe I'm over-analyzing. Thoughts?

                              Thanks again!

                                +1. That thing is sweet, Moose! I may have to check out their offerings. Do they fit true to size? Thanks for the link.
