I was wondering if the gap was due to holding the phone up. You're right, hard to judge unless someone else takes the pics.
There are other threads on NYC tailors so I won't add anything else here. There is also a big KW thread with plenty of info on his process (hint: you don't actually measure before buying).
Your collar points should reach the lapel.Half windsor is fine but no dimple is no good, and the way you tied it in general is sloppy. Many would say you choose the type of knot based on the type of collar. What you did was pretty much fill the gap. Some would say a four-in-hand is better with this shirt. You were probably just doing it quick for a picture, but just something to think about before you leave the house.
Small stripes + big stripes + gingham + solid = 4 patterns?

Sleeves are a little short for my taste but to each his own. Good start. Now you can work on finding a shirt whose collar fills the space between the lapels and tying the tie so as to not look like a Macy's mannequin.
You know you're down in it thick when you're talking about the relative merits of a quarter inch of fabric. Don't blow up the site.
Because there are such beautiful examples of perfectly fitting suits here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/52943/indochino-suits/I bought a suit and tux from IC a few years back. While I was one of the lucky ones that had a decent experience without remakes, that suit has been slowly moving down the pecking order. Materials are (were) so-so, craftmanship is so-so. It's been nearly 3 years and I have not even thought of going back.SS's own MTM program will probably give...
If it fits well in the shoulders and chest, why take a chance that a full remake won't fuk something else up, when all you're doing is standard tailor stuff? Tailors slim pants, adjust waists, hem sleeves, etc.Put on some shoes.
Ah, so that means this suitmaker company is making goods for multiple folks. Got it.
