    Are the pants too skinny? I'm a very skinny guy so somewhat thinner/more fitted pant legs are generally preferable to having a lot of extra fabric flapping around when I walk.

    Yes. IMHO the pants are too skinny.

    The jacket though looks good.

    I recently purchased a Lazio jacket from Suit Supply. Normally I'm a 42R but in this jacket that was too tight. It is one of their slim cut jackets.

    So on the advice of a forum member I sized up and went with a 44R.

    I'm happy with the fit from the front. The back less so. I'm not 100% sure if it's the jacket as I have one shoulder higher then the other which might account for the appearance of pulling.

    Just wanted a 3rd party opinion. Thanks.

    You're right the front does look pretty good. Can you take it to a tailor and get their opinion on if there's anything they can do about the back?

    I have two blazers I'm trying to decide on keeping or returning. I'm most curious about if the shoulders fit right. I've read that's the most important thing to fit well and can't tell if it looks a little funny because of the padding there or if the fit is wrong. Any advice is appreciated!

    Thanks for replying.

    Yes I guess I could visit the tailor. I started looking online and I saw several videos where creases can be corrected. The ones I saw were symmetrical but I am sure the process is similar.

    @dgamby - In the first brown SC pic, your right shoulder has a slight divot. I have this as well and it doesn't bother me too much. I think this can be fixed by adjusting the sleeve pitch so if you want to spend $50 and have a competent tailor, they can remove the arm and reattached at a better angle to fix.

    But I think both look fine as is. You could slightly fix the back from the wrinkles with tailoring but it is up to you.

    Thanks for the input. They were 50 each so I probably won't spend the money to have any major tailoring done. Might shorten the sleeves a hair. I just wanted to make sure they didn't look off.

    They don't look way off but the shoulders could be improved a tad. If I paid 50 for a coat, I'd take some of the savings and have my tailor fit it perfectly for me (you can make something that was very affordable look like it's a million bucks with good tailoring). But if you didn't, I don't think anyone would say they're poorly fit as is.

    That's helpful. I had a bad experience with my last tailor and will likely be looking for a new one. Probably will start off with something smaller than removing the sleeve when I try out a new tailor. I may get some work done on these down the road but wanted to make sure that they were passable as is.

    They are. I don't think many people pay attention to fit as much as we do. I have a really great tailor and would always recommend finding one, yourself. Not many things fit me well off the rack so that was important for me. I can get away with wearing things OTR enough of the time but the difference that my tailor can make is very noticeable to me and worth it for a lot of what I wear. And if he doesn't think he can improve something enough for me to spend the money on it, he'll tell me so. I think it's worth some time on Yelp and shopping around, if you have the inclination.
