The suit doesn't fit to your posture. The front balance is too short causing puffed lapels and scissored fronts. The back balance is conversely too long. For the price of BL, consider quality MTM which can at least adjust to your more erect posture and backward pitching shoulders.
The shirt is too small by normal standards of fit. Sure, it looks "modern" but in reality it's too tight especially in the chest. A good meal will split the plackets open when you sit.As far as the jacket goes, your posture and shoulder slope & pitch will always be your enemy buying off the rack. Shoulder divots and excess fabric at the back of the garment are hard fixes. Being athletic with a prominent and narrow midsection will almost always equal precise tailoring or a...
It's a must that you be measured correctly for a custom suit. If you were measured by their sales people and it still came out that way, I say abandon ship. I'll echo a previous response from despos that your suit cannot be altered. It must be remade with correct measures.
The shoulders are falling because they're maybe a little too wide but more because there's not enough slope in them. Padding them out or having them recut to fix that esp on the right low.
Yes but you do need the actual fabric.
Did they remove the back pocket to do the repair?
About the low end navy MTM suit....The measurements mightof been accurate, but the postural observations were not. Posture more erect. Shoulders a little more sloped and backward pitched. A slightly lowered button stance and longer length jacket will do good things for you. If you're trying to be fashionable, lengthen by .5 to 1". A more classic length would be 3/4 to 1.5" longer. Sway back and forward hips. Maybe semi prominent seat.  Go back to the maker and see what...
The side view tells most of the story here. The front balance is too short. This is causing the lapels to fan away from your chest and causing the quarters to invert. Your posture is likely more erect than the jacket is cut for. It's not a satisfactory result for MTM no matter the cost.
Rolls under the collar can technically be caused by a wide variety of issues. Sometimes it's tightness over the blades. Sometimes it's excessive incline, forward shoulders, short collar. Based on the pics, it looks like there's just too much incline which lowering the collar some would help. If it's tightness over the blades, lowering the collar will really not help. In that case, more fullness needs to be thrown over the blades. That's the tailor's skill in deciding what...
