Why? It certainly covers his seat. Anything longer than that is just a stylistic preference, not an aesthetic necessity.

And I've never seen him respond to a criticism or objection to his posts.

From the pictures provided your first suit it doesn't look bad for an online purchase. (i.e. not trying on in person) Main areas of concern look fine: shoulders, chest and length. As you mentioned going back to Nordstrom, see if you can find an independent tailor. You will receive superior results if the man marking the suit also performs the alterations. You need material taking in behind the shoulder blades and possibility the collar lowered. Does the collar hug your neckline? I see excess fabric rolling below your jacket collar. Although the fabric roll could be posture related.

My only advice is not about your suit, but your shirt. Get rid of it. Makes you look like a blueberry.

True, that is a horrid shirt. Suit looks pretty good. A couple of small issues: button point is a bit high, length is a smidge short (but is still usable), and the peak lapels lends it to more of a nighttime wear suit rather than business.

No worries, that's not what I'm going with... the new dress shirt and tie are in the mail. I really am starting from scratch here.

As suggested, I'm finding an independent tailor. And I suppose that's fine if this is just more of an evening/formal/event suit... I'll pick up a notched lapel navy suit when I need the business look.

Thanks guys!

As stated by a few posters: do NOT button the bottom button! Otherwise, no bad.

Agree with the general comments of others, good purchase for online. Good idea on the tailor too. I like the suit.

Looks OK -- the overall shape is quite pleasing. The jacket is absolutely, categorically not too short -- you appear to have fairly long arms, which makes the hand-curl test for jacket length useless.

The back does look a bit messy, and in my experience, even a good tailor will only be able to clean that up so much. I wouldn't add more waist suppression, as that will only exacerbate the problem at the top. Does the jacket hug your shoulders or does it extend beyond your natural shoulder line?

Sleeve pitch isn't perfect, but that may just be your posture. On the whole, not bad.
