Describe your Experience:
Pros: The commissioner was very helpful, patient, enthusiastic, and wonderful to work with. They got the suit to us on time. The suit itself was professionally put together, no doubt. I've never seen stitching so well done in my life, except for expensive clothes in the store department. Overall our expectations were met and exceeded.
Cons: The costume itself was a little small. The collar was too tight, the glove didn't fit around the wrists too well, the jacket arms length was shorter than the under shirt length, the jacket itself couldn't fit over the torso, one of the gloves ripped and had to be sewn back together, the slack part in the pants were too small, and they used a fabric that rubs off. There's now a white part on the inside of the thighs from wear for only abour a maximum of 8 hours.
Comments: The fabric choice could have been better for the jacket and pants. The measurements were accurate, so I'm not sure how they put things together, but they could give a bit more slack when given measurements. So make sure when you order, to give at least an inch more on each measurement, 'cause then, if it's too big, you can always have it taken in or take it in yourself.
