Thread: suit trouble
11-20-2005, 05:15 AM #1
yesterday i went shopping for a suit for a friends wedding. never knew that that would be such a problem. i'm to big for standard suits .
and getting an handmade takes about 6 weeks and the wedding is in 2 weeks so you'll get the problem. i wonder if i can come in my gym pants .

just squeeze into the smaller suite and when they say speak now or forever hold your peace just scream and bust out of it

dude, im 6'4", about 315lbs i figure (not weighing while on cycle), and I can easily find tuxes and suits to fit. Find a better shop, IMO.

Find a privately owned tailor. You should be able to find one who can help you out in that time frame.

Do you not have any friends of similar size you could borrow off?

In china you can get measured up for a suit, go shopping, come back and its ready! (Admittedly its a bit of a trek!)

I have to wear a suit everyday. Go in and find a jacket that fits you through the wings/shoulders. I know it is made for a 54" waist, but most places like Dillards, etc, have a tailor there on premise that will take the measurements and mark on the suit where it needs to be tailored. Then, they will send it off and get it back usually withing 48 hours.
I have to do the same thing with my white dress shirts. 18.5" neck equals a 54" worth of shirt around my waist. Find a local tailor in town for the dress shirts. Costs me around $10 each to get the shirts fixed.
Dillards, etc, doesn't charge anything for alterations on suits when you buy it there. If you shop right, usually can buy the jacket/pant suit for around $400-$700. Shirts are usually around $50. I do have a couple of nice suits that I only paid around $300 for just by finding closeouts, etc at Dillards, Banana, etc.

I know I need a 48R "athletic cut". that way the waist is much smaller than a normal suit. I got a couple of them at dillards, but you should also check out online sites. Overstock.com might be good...

here in holland the standard suits go up to size 60 after that its only handmade. i know that they can adjust it but my shoulders and back don't fit in the largest size. think i'm need to find a tailor that works overtime i gues.

Yeah try finding a snowboarding jacket? I am on the hunt for that right now. I need a 3XL and apparently no one makes them in that size.
So Rodge, I feel your pain.

By the time they alter my suit they can take the extra material and make another
Dress shirts are even harder to find now for me.

Go to a big&tall man store.
You seem "proud" of the fact you cant fit in suits.

ha ha clothes suck, i especially trousers, end up with trousers that are like 6 inches too long and have to belt them up so all the extra material gathers around the waist and looks like u cant afford to buy clothes that fit!

yea....I forgot you are in holland. Probably didn't make much sense to you did it? Sorry about that....
May have to pay someone to turn you one out quick like it sounds like. Might be worth it though if it actually fits. I hate it when my jacket/shirt are too damn tight and feel like wearing a straight jacket.
Good luck bro.
