    Dave Porter - looks pretty good. What would you alter? The sleeves look long. It's pulling at the button...you may want a little more breathing room in the body.

    Thanks! I was worried because this is a 42R. Although I have a 42 inch chest, most 42R are too big sometimes.

    The pic is a bit deceiving.
    It is actually a little roomy in the midsection.
    Going to need taken in at the sides.

    Quick Background: I'm in grad school, I can't afford nicer suits right now.
    How bad are the shoulders on these? That is all I am concerned about. I hate the padding.
    I could barely move in the next size down.

    Gray



    Black


    Same jacket brand and size. Alfani Red 42R. I have a V shape. Thin/Athletic. Need extreme tailoring around midsection.
    Will these suit my needs? One or two weddings a year and a funeral here and there.

    Shoulders look way too wide on the black one. In the future, try standing perpendicular against a wall. If the shoulder seam can touch the wall or is close to touching the wall, put the suit back.

    The gray one is OK, but the padding looks funky since it messes up the slope of your shoulders.

    I think you may want to try some other brands, Dave.

    I really don't think the shoulders look that bad... I have broad shoulders naturally. More opinions please. Does it really look that bad?

    It doesn't look awful, but they are noticeably big. If you're concerned more about price than fit, you could probably find a cheaper suit elsewhere if you can wait for a sale.

    The jackets just might not be a good fit for you, but I think you should take some pictures of yourself in a 40 and post them. Don't be worried about range of motion. If you're not used to wearing properly fitted tailored clothing, it will feel restricting at first. Also, don't concern yourself with the fact that your chest measures as a 42. Most men generally will wear a stated size smaller than their measured size.

    Dave, it doesn't look "bad" but there are several brands at Macy's that are easy on the wallet. I'd encourage you to try the others. If the 40R is too small on you, and that 42R doesn't work, you may find a better fit in a different brand. It can be tough to find the right fit at a lower price range (fellow grad student, I get it).

    For that suit, the shoulders are a bit too big. That is exacerbated by the shoulder pads in that suit not sitting well on the slope of your shoulders. The way the coat hangs on you also causes the waist to flare.
