Again the fit described is terrible. Jacket is too short...trouser rise is too low (shirt triangle showing) Jkt pulls at button . Trouser pockets gape and it pulls across the area between waist and crotch. This video is pure crap.

Many default in this suit sleeve in front on the right and left side near the first button , the flaps at the back is open it's not fall straight . Trousers it's too tight at the back too many fabrics down the waist in front it's not a perfect suit .Mauritius tailor is the best you are most welcome and see the real suit made to measure and cut on your body not on size.

Jacket too snug..pulled fabric when buttoned.Pants are too long, half break is better, coupled with over the calf blacks socks to cover exposed leg.CEO looks slobbish. But the the cobblers children wear no shoes either.

Its not supposed to fit like that around his stomach, the jacket is cut to tight. The arm length is to long should be about half to 3/4 from wrist. Its ok for the pant to touch the top of the heel. #GET IT TOGETHER GUY

Damn! I gotta take all my suits now down to the tailor to get them properly fitted. I figured if you can comfortably swing an axe around with it, it should be fine. Guess not.

A suit, no matter how good it is or how well it fits, has absolutely nothing to do with manliness. Instead, it is symbol of fashion slavery, it is following not leading.

Horrible SMH
Danielle Strijdhaftig (6 months ago)
First, the camera is positioned too close and too high, creating an unflattering viewing angle. Women do in fact want to see a bit of a man's ass below his suit jacket. The suit jacket is bunching up in weird ways; divots, the button crease, the sleeves. Not sure it has been properly canvassed. The suit jacket's sleeves are also too long as they are hiding the shirt cuffs. On the pants, the creases are pointing down from the crotch rather than up, which makes for an unflattering look. The rest is fine.

Really poor fitting suit. If it it fits that badly standing straight, imagine how bad it will fit when moving, eating, etc.

How about a real world suit fit perhaps on the guy that's talking!
pseuocpkle (9 months ago)
Pulled button, shoulder less than a quarter inch, chest doesn't drape naturally, rule of thumb not being applied. I think men's Warehouse would provide better advice than this video.

Arturo Millán (1 year ago)
Thank you! The pants bit, that's the length I always ask for and they give me a look like wtf you don't know anything about suits... 😰 You should have had the model sit down, though, to see how much should the leg rise.

It's pretty simple. The difference between 'style' and 'fashion'. Fashion is anything new, be it good, bad or indifferent. Style is fashion that has been worn and accepted by gentlemen. In a nut shell the description of a well dressed man "he was very well dressed, but I don't remember exactly what he was wearing." (So much for a long red tie covering your open fly). I saw a guy once in an absolutely gorgeous green Brioni suit. Fabulous fabric. Only one problem. If he were in a room with 500 people and I said "take this note to the guy in the green suit", you'd walk right up to him. Two things so dead wrong here. #1 The myth that coat length is determined by your thumb, Coat length is determined by whatever it takes to place the fullest part of your chest, waist and seat in the fullest parts of the coat accordingly. This, not height, determines Reg, short, long , etc. It's torso, not height. If you're 5'11" and have a 29'" inseam you are a probably a long or a mid-long if you can find it. If you're 6'1" and have a 33" inseam you are probably a regular.. The common problem with today's slim-fit-Ryan Sycrest's -little-brother- outgrew- it suit of clothes (besides being ridiculously suppressed at the waist) is that the strap (lapel) is too short causing it to spread out. This is usually the result of the coat being too short. So Mr. 5'9"/225 take a serious second look at the 6'1"/118 walking mannequin in your suit. HE looks like he's wearing that suit that Ryan's bro outgrew. Funny, you probably think you're too old and too fat to wear skinny ripped jeans (and you're right). But, you'll wear the 'skinny ripped jeans' guys suit, And, btw, I don't care what GQ is showing this season, your lapels should be in balance with your frame. Big guy= skinny lapels?. Never. Skinny lapels - wide tie? Ditto. It's all about balance. Balance! Know why Cary Grant wore wide shoulders, a style which became immensely popular? HIs tailor realized that like so many actors (damned if I know why) Cary had a large head. Balance! Only two really important things to look for in selecting size and model. The collar hugs your neck and the "expression" across the chest. It should look smooth and flat. Most anything else can be tweeked. We used to call wide lapel flared trouser jumbo plaids the "look what we've done to them club". Looking today at your daughter's wedding pics and you were wearing a clown outfit 'cus it was THE fashion.

For sub 200$ suit it looks good and how do people expect it fit perfectly?

The "expert" should look in a mirror. His own suit looks awful.
Ifk 1899 (1 year ago)
American suits looks retarded. OK I understand that the avg. American is obese and that they feel comfortable in a big bag of fabric without shape, but it looks awful.
Jex B (1 year ago)
Way to promote your product by making a video with barely any correct facts, the suit doesn't fit this man at all. Won't be buying my suits (or anything) at Combatant Gentleman that's for sure.
Ovi Ovidiu (1 year ago)
I was wearing exactly this shape of the costume. And I always thought that it is too small.
Ian Schulze (1 year ago)
sleeve length is so important that we won't let you see the shirt sleeve till I pull the jacket sleeve up......I also made a video of my daughter using sidewalk chalk on our driveway and used the same free music.

Hi. I have a question. I have a hard time taking measurements to my clients with big belly and want a slim fit or macho-look. They wanted something like a curve/sexy shape so I usually get the circumference of the high waist for the curve part and take the circumference at the center or on the umbilical level. Am I doing the right way? How much allowance should I add, if the clients high waist is 38 and the belly is 42? hoping for you reply. thank you.
do Eric ever blink?
Cardinal Biggles (1 year ago)
That's a terrible fitting suit. Look at the wings overhanging on the shoulders, and the top button is in the wrong place, making the jacket crease up all ocross the front. What happens when the model lifts his arms? Jeez!
TheBooban (1 year ago)
So this clip uses a model and a presenter with ill fitting suits to show what not to do?

How should a suit fit for someone who carries a concealed firearm? Same thing just one size bigger waist?

@Art of manliness what should i actual say to the tailor can i just give them the suit and say tailor it or do i have to tell them all the alterations you've said here
He stares... right into my soul! Oh, the horror...

Where are the regular fit suits that don't crowd the crotch? "Slim fit" is close to becoming incongruent with manliness.

Wow. That was one bad fitted suit! If this a suit company I would say "SHAME ON YOU!!!" Close your stores and learn about suits first!

A suit is a uniform. Why do people make things complicated than what it is?!
markh15 (2 years ago)
The title of this video is ironic. The jacket is too tight around the waist. Not a great drape either. Slim fit is fine, but this is more like 2 sizes too small.
