  • @Totino: The jacket looks way too tight. It's noticeably short, too, but that's just the H&M style. But it really should be sized up.

    • A 3am post Alan? lol -- hope you weren't at work still/already at that point (even I wasn't by then)

      • I dunno, the shoulders are good on Totino's. The waist should be taken out, at least. I'd say you're not gonna get a suit you're gonna be happy with for $60 though.


        @Big Scooter, that looks much better. The shoulders still might be a bit wide, but the rest of it is pretty good.

        • @Totino: It's a size too small (and too short) - there's no other way to say it.


          What you can do, though, is wear it with the button opened so it won't be nearly as tight around the stomach. Going out to the bar, that will be totally fine.

          • Thanks, Jason! I think I'll keep this one. Now if I can just get a suit that works...


            I'll definitely have the sleeves shortened. Do you think it needs waist tapering? I can stack a fist and a flat hand and get them between the button and my stomach (with some slight difficulty).

            • @Big_Scooter, I don't think you need the waist tapered. It might help, but it looks good enough as is in my opinion. What are your sizes/dimensions? I'm also 38" and on the market for a blazer.

              • I am 5 foot 7 inches, 154 pounds. Frequent weight lifter.


                My shoulders are 48" (measuring tape around widest part of deltoids across the upper chest and back), chest is 40.5", waist is 32" (at the belly button) 37.5" hips (widest part of butt). Short torso, longer legs.


                Your question inspired me to check my full measurements, probably more information than you wanted/needed.


                I can measure the jacket too, if that would help.

                • Lol, I don't have all those measurements for myself, but it doesn't hurt to know. This is my first blazer, so I don't really know what jacket measurements would suit me. Thanks for the offer though.

                  • @Totino, I think the jacket is too tight. As Jason mentioned, the shoulders look like they fit but overall, it looks off. I'd say return it and save yourself $60. An ill fitting suit is not a good purchase.

                    • @hornsup: Yeah, I was up at 3am, and it wasn't by choice, but it's not what anyone would guess. I was working on a team project for my marketing class last night and drank an energy drink around 8pm to help me focus. It didn't wear off until 7 hours later... :-P

                      • ha -- gotta watch energy drinks... the stuff in Red Bull, Monster, etc. is just scary. I prefer my 5 hours now when i need a kick. For some reason, it doesn't feel/taste as unhealthy...

                        • Yeah I'm going to return it. Thanks for the input guys. I just won a BR suit for $100 on ebay. We'll see how that turns out.

                          • I got a shirt slimmed down for the first time. I think it might be too tight, or I'm just used to wearing ill-fitting clothes.

                            • I think you're probably just accustomed to less well-fitted clothes. The fit looks good to me. If might be too tight if the material were pulling on the buttons, but I don't really see any of that going on here.

                              • if the buttons don't pull when sitting down, you should be good
