I'm not a tailor, but the lapels don't look particularly wide to me. The high buttoning point isn't doing you any favours, though.

I don't personally like a lot of the details of the suits you've linked. There's a wealth of information in this thread:
Having owned one of these, I can tell you that it is routinely found in outlets for ~$400....and even then it isn't a very good value. It was also my experience that it was easy to flip, so I would definitely recommend you go that route. If you are intent on keeping it, consider posting some better pictures. It looks like the shoulders don't fit terribly well, but the angle and the lighting make it hard to be certain.
What this guy said, but I'd also consider Kent Wang for more options and fabrics if you can stretch your budget just a little bit more.
I used a black and white diagram to convey exactly what I wanted, and Luxire nailed the measurements (a shorter yoke and closer/higher pockets). Somehow despite getting the hard part perfect, they made the hips super wide (about 2" more than requested on the half hip), so they are currently being remade.Another issue I see that my pair also had is that the rear fork (I think it's called) or inner seat width is too narrow, which for lack of a better term results in a...

You didn't mention what you are interviewing for, but Suit Supply gives you the most options of the 3. The Ludlow may be roughly the same quality as the lower end SS, but has very low rise trousers, wimpy lapels, and only comes in one cut if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't really consider Brooks vs SS, unless you were at least the 1818 mainline level, and even then.....fewer options/cuts, and an inflated price for what you get. Whichever you end up with, your instinct is...
