    Excuse the poor lighting/quality. How's the fit look? I think it borders on small in the shoulder area but isn't too bad. First fitted Stafford shirt, got on sale and isn't worth price to exchange.

    At worst I can use to layer, but I think its OK?

      Looks solid to me.

        How much of an issue is this in terms of proper suit fit?

        I bought a slim fit suit jacket and it fits perfectly except one area, it's tight in the shoulders due to the following detail. When I wear it, in between my shoulder blades you can see 2-3 horizontal lines in the fabric. I don't find it uncomfortable to wear though. I noticed this in a few suits posted in here and over at SF but sometimes people don't comment on the issue(?).

        I've tried sizing up but it doesn't work; too boxy, big in the chest, and I get shoulder dimples.

        Maybe related? The left lapel doesn't sit perfectly flat on my chest or as flat as the right side. Even when I sized up, it didn't. Tried another suit, same issue.


        I will have a talk with my tailor this weekend but wanted to hear some thoughts.

                Hi Dapper-ers,
                I'd love some help on this--I'm pretty new to the sportcoat/ blazer situation, but have learned tons from you all.

                I just got the JCF Thompson Sportcoat in Herringbone in the mail and wondering if I need to size down from a 38R to a 36R or 36S, or go to the tailor.
                I'm about 5'7" 145 lbs.

                thank you so much for the help. the jacket seems great otherwise.
                here's some pics:

                  Thank you.. This is my first time wearing a jacket and I am glad I found something that I don't have to have it tailored.. This is encouraging..

                    Bought some CT shirts recently, and decided to post a picture here. This is probably the best fitting shirt of the bunch, on two of the others the shoulders are a bit wider, but not to the point of being unreasonable, I think. Another, that I'm returning, just seems a bit wider in every dimension, and had a strange drape on the back, as well as slightly shorter sleeves. So yeah, what do you guys make of this? Pardon the poor photos, lighting, and setting.

                      Is that Slim or Extra Slim?

                      Also, don't feel this warrants a new thread. Jcrew Barn Jacket is on sale for under $120 right now. Anyone tried this thing out? How's the fit/quality?



                      Kind of wish it came in Olive

                        I did. I posted a pic recently in this thread if you look back a little bit. The small fit me pretty good but was a tad tight in certain areas. It would have worked great if they had pit a center vent on it.

                        I then tried it on with a sweater (since I'd be wearing it with that type of stuff more than I would just a plain shirt) and it seemed too snug to me whereas the medium was way too big. I ended up returning it.

                          Ya, I saw your post after I posted, but your concern is one I share because I'm typically between an S and M.

                          Living in Canada makes returns a PITA.

                            Extra slim.

                              Got my suit from Black Lapel recently and just wondering how things look, I realize the sleeves are a bit too long and will be changing that shortly. Thanks

                                Recently I received my suit from Black Lapel, other than the sleeves being a bit too long how does it look? Thanks in advance.
