You might wanna consider adjusting the pants measurements next time. Either that or remove the banana from your pocket.

Well, I'm no expert, but it seems that the angle of the sleeves does not match the natural angle of your arms, therefore there is diagonal rippling in the upper arms/near the sleeve heads. This can be seen especially in photos #3 and #6. You'll notice that if you move your arms...
It seems that the sleeves need to be rotated slightly backward.

The colorful buttonholes only drag your attention to how ugly the buttonholes/cheap plastic buttons are (in most cases).

Thank you all for the input so far! Actually, my tailor contacted me today, and wrote that he would like to make the chest and waist smaller if I have no oppositions after test driving the suit for a few days. He supposedly left the chest area a little roomier because I complained about tightness in the chest of my Indochino suit (which is really on the tight side). He also wrote that he reconsidered the shoulders, and would like to try some careful...
