The lapel seems really high.

If you have narrow lapels like these, make the pocket flaps narrow as well. There is a disparity.

essentially the point to point is too wide. chest is too large as well.
should have a higher armhole.
rise on the pants seems short.

alterations to this garment
have a tailor take in from the center back.
let out crotch a bit.

the button looks too large.

after looking again at the side photo. the suit is way off balance. to much supression at the waist in back making the fronts look big.
not a disaster, but this is a reason there are tailors and slalesmen who are trained to take measurements

Is this doable?

I really don't think it is bad at all. The shoulders are a bit too wide. Did you measure your rear shoulders or just add an inch to your front measure?

the jacket is way too short not just in the sleeves but in the body as well, you want to cuff you hands and be able to touch the bottom of the jacket, I can tell already that you won't be able to do that. I would go with a long in the coat which should take care of everything.

I believe the slightly shorter jacket is a part of the "look and style" of TaT. However I still think the jacket could use an extra .5" to 1" in length.

Your shoes do not fit. They look a size small or maybe you have a high instep because the Bal is open way too much.

Not really very good at all - I assume the cutter to be as thick as his firm's name if this is passed off as MTM.

Front appears too short
Excess cloth about the shoulders
Sleeves set incorrectly as witnessed by the excess cloth in the upper arm
Only three buttons on cuffs and way too far up sleeve - clearly a short cut to adjusting sleeve length rather than elegance.
Trousers do not quite 'break' correctly
Seat ill fitting - not 'clean' at all.
Tab on back pocket looks awful - not as clean as button hole.

Despite all the negative comments, I think this is pretty decent for a first attempt. I ended up with much the same results on my first try with TaT. It's not perfect but I think with some tweaks you could have a suit that's nearly spot on, and your 2nd attempt will be a lot better if you choose to try again.

I was having similar chest & shoulder issues and upon taking it to a well respected tailor in NYC he recommended taking the chest in by 1" and the pants in by 1/2". This looks like about what you need, though in my case the wrinkling across the back seemed to be mostly further to the outside, between the shoulder blades and the armpits. It's still at the tailor but I'll try and let you know how it turns out. Out of curiosity, what measurements did you use?

I think you should eat more.

Jacket is too short for your stature
Sleeves are off
Chest area is off

I think better angled pics are needed. Take into consideration that the pics seems to be taken looking up so some proportions make look awkward.
To the OP, try taking pics from a higher angle as it may help solve any problems better.
Just a suggestion.

It looks good

Lengthen the pants, and perhaps add a bit more break to the front (bring it closer to the heel)

Your shoulders are sloping, and your suit isn't taking that into consideration... hence the unflattering shoulder line...

you've also got too much fabric under the arms... that could be taken in

all just my .02
