    Default Totally random question about suit pants

    Directed towards someone who has to dress for work so knows what they are talking about. I bout some perry ellis suits on sale for so god damn cheap that i was willing to take the risk of the pants not fitting.

    I bout a 36" waist and its a little too big. Is it worth taking it to a tailor to get it adjusted or should i just buy the pants again for 50 bucks a piece on sale in the 34" or 33" waist?

    Thanks

    They make dress pants with a little bit-o-stretch. Check out Sears/Penny's for some potential stretch waste bands.

    Then lose a couple pounds. They are like "invisible fit" and you can't tell that's how they work.

    Otherwise, get the tailoring.

    i think you miseed it. I bought them too big. Is it worth getting them adjusted, ie, will they look good, or should i just buy a smaller size?

    You will almost always have to get some alterations on suits.

    Most suits are sold with a 6-7" drop in the paints, so say 40R suit will have a 34-35" waist slack off the rack. You will want to get the slacks altered to fit you, and the sleeves of the jacket as well.

    Very, very rarely does an off the rack suit fit correctly. You will want to have alterations done to look best.

    let me add a little more. im pretty sure a 34" pant or 33" would fit a lot better than the 36" that i bought. Can a 36" be adjusted to fit like a 34" or is it a waist (hahaha) of time?

    Depends on how good your tailor is. You don't want the pockets to be too close together.

    If you can mix and match the pants with the jacket, then by all means do that.
