Hmmmm, not bad. Perhaps it's just the pic, but that button stance looks a little low for a paddock, which is basically just a three button without the bottom button and a slightly lower stance. I'd put the buttons on a paddock higher than your example shows, not as high as a true 3-button but not as low either. This pic of the Duke of Windsor is what I think a paddock should look like:     I think something like this could look good on you; I doubt I can rock it...
Yeah, it's a twill. And looks like it's been brushed too. Very, very nice
On twill silk ties the "ribs" are not very noticeable, and since cloth is cut on the bias, they usually run in vertical or almost vertical.
 The weave does look like twill. Whatever it is, it's very nice
 What's wrong with gray and tan?  I think SF has had too much of an influence on me, cause I don't like NewYorkIslander's gdl's ensemble. Not to imply that it's wrong, cause what do I know. But I think it's the first time I don't like something he's put together.
btw stitchy, that tie looks great. Looks like challis, although not quite as smooth - regular wool twill?
I think if I have the next jacket made a bit longer, as HF suggests, the stance will look more balanced. Yeah, this MTM operation is messy. It's taken me way too many garments to get this result, and even then, it's never perfect. Besides the lapel roll thing, the sleeve pitch was corrected in just one sleeve, and the sleeve buttonholes weren't opened (I asked for 4 real buttonholes). I can't even open them myself because the first one is sewn on the outside only, so it...
Yes, that's the one

 I quite like the buttoning point, though next time I might ask for a true 3 button roll (this is a 3 to 2 indeed). I wouldn't do the top button, so I don't think I'd ask for a paddock, which "requires" the top one to be fastened. The jacket was a bit of a mess when it came from the factory. They rolled the lapels  to the top button, and as a result they looked diminutive and the buttoning point way too high. They probably mistook it for a 2-button with an extremely high...
