    Think of the body of the suit like a bell and he's the clapper... The body is tilted forward and he's clanging against the back

    I don't usually mind slightly short jackets as I really only ever wear them casually. That, however, is really short, scooter. Even for casual wear, IMO.

    That's a good analogy. I see what you're saying. So maybe waist suppression and bringing it in around the hips would help. Still...it's one thing to have one or two things to fix about a jacket. Not a whole laundry list of things you can't really change like the length.

    Yea, it is definitely going back. I'll call the gap later to see if they ever got the jackets in. Strange that they would make the jacket so short. Like I said, I'm 5 foot 7, so that jacket must be made for people about 5 foot 3 to be that short on me.


    I'll post again if I try the 40r. This has been a lot of help.

    My CT white poplin shirt came in the mail. The shoulder seam ends before my shoulder. Should I return the shirt? I'm having a hard time finding a shirt that is slim in the waist, but will fit my shoulders. Perhaps Blank Label or Ratio?

    The shoulder seam lining up is more important in jackets. How does the rest of it feel? Does it move okay with you when you lift your arms, etc?

    The shirt fits decently for OTR. My mobility is not limited, I'm just worried it will look weird.

    Doesn't look weird at all. Seems to fit well in the neck, maybe a little long in the sleeves. Depends on how you like it.


    If you sized up in the shoulders, you'd be swimming in the chest and neck. Did you go with the Slim or Tailored fit? Depending on your preference, you're either right on the money or could go a little slimmer with the shirt.

    Thanks for the input, guys. I'm going to keep it.

    I got the tailored fit, so that's as slim as it's going to get with CT. I need to lift some weights and eat more.
