What about proportions? Lapel width, button stance etc.

Shoulders are much too square.
Obviously neither you nor your tailor
have been influenced by the endless discussions
of neapolitan shoulder construction in this Forum.

They are structured, yes, and clearly there is more padding than a neapolitan shoulder, but are certainly not 'square'.

Neapolitan shoulders look freaky anyway.

It's just not a great bespoke suit, no shape and tight in the wrong places.

Jackets a bit big in the shoulders which is causing divots also the right sleeves is shorter then the left.

Worst thing about the suit is the photographs, I think it probably looks great in real life.

I agree, the photos make it look pretty shapeless.

I think overall, it looks quite good. However, the jacket should be a bit tighter around the stomache/waist.

It seems like its fitting like a box on you. I'm not sure if you wanted it like that.

You might be right. It's difficult to take great photos with self timer.

Take pics outside in the daylight. Problem solved.

From what I can tell in the photos given, the first shot of the back and the photo right after that present an unacceptable result for bespoke.

I'd take it back to get those issues fixed for sure. The back should be cleaner and that's probably caused by an improper fit around the entire waist.

Also, as Lee pointed out, the collar isn't fit well at all. There is too much shirt collar showing and there's a definite gap visible in the 4th pic that needs to be fixed.

For the next time, I'd ask them to clean up the back, around the waist. I don't think it's an effect of the waist being too tight, but there is some crumpling (or divoting) back there that can easily be fixed. This is most evident in pictures 5 and 6. If you changed your posture or pulled down on the jacket's tails, the curve would be much smoother around the small of your back and you wouldn't have as many creases. Your tailor should make your jacket such that you don't have to do this.

The back might be the way I stand. I will look to that with the tailor. I agree about the collar. It's too low. How about the front? Im not sure I like the way two sides of the jacket overlap below center button. Photos are a bit dark but you can see what i mean at pictures 1 and 4.

whats with the hands in the pockets? are you posing for GQ? two useless pictures there.
the collar is gaping all the way around.
yes you have a right low shoulder but i cant see any bad effect. but then it may be causing problems in the right sleeve.
bright outdoors light is great for seeing detail on dark clothing.
the butt is far too tight. thats causing the weird bunching of cloth in the small of the back.
thats also why the side vents are splitting open.

I just wanted to show some more natural positions.
