Well for those of you following my little soap opera, today I had my first fitting of this suit.

One giant problem - shoulders far too big. As soon as I put it on, we both said "ok theyve gotta come in"

This in turn makes the sleeves too long.

Unfortunately Chuong proved himself an atrocious wielder of a disposable camera (my digital died [xx(]), Ive Photoshopped them as best I can, but they were terrible.

He showed up with only one sleeve attached and pants arent done yet either - theyll be done on Wednesday.

Here are the pics.

sorry about the missing corners here - the pics had a LOT of ceiling in them, and were at a weird angle.

Its the second back one here that best shows how far out of whack the shoulders are. The first shows the waist suppression quite well, although this will change when the shoulders become less pronounced.

I wish this one came out better, i hoped to be able to show the internal construction of it, but this was the best i could get it. Hope you guys can make something of it. Yup, he used the standard shoulder pads rather than the soft wadding that a 'real' tailor might use. I think this is a little bit NFL and have asked him to take it in a bit.

He is doing a second basted fitting next week till we get the shoulders right, dont want to go too much further till Im happy with the shape.

Other thoughts?

Matt
