    suit trouble

    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 .

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

    I'm fairly confident you will be able to find someone who can tailor make one in time, it may cost you more but what can you do?

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

    are you preportionate? Judging by his avatar hes got a small waste and a huge as v shape! This makes it hard to fit.. I would suggest a black sports jacket and finding some black pants... the shades of black might be a bit off due to not being from the same roll of cotton but nobody will notice...
    unless your supposed to get a pink one?

    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.

    peace,

    ttgb

    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...

    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.

    I have to do the same thing......... and being 5'7" doesn't help matters either.

    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.

    peace,
