Suit 2 much better IMHO. I don't like the high closure of Suit 1. It is the 3-button at its worst. You'd probably be well served by lapels a little wider than the ones in Suit 2, but that issue is secondary to the buttoning point to me.
Thanks, I agree. I tried not buttoning the top button of suit 1, but it made it look even worse.

Thank you, that is one of my favorite ties. It is a red 7 fold silk tie with a very soft sheen that looks dark pink or red depending on how the light hits it.
I thought this thread would currently be the best place to ask advice on the style and fit of these two suits.
I am about 6', 225#, and wear a size 46 jacket. I'm not svelte, therefore not a lot of waist suppression in the jackets.
I know the pants are too long, but I would like overall opinion on fit of the suits, and which seems to look better on me.
I appreciate any, and all, constructive feedback.
No, not at all! I think, maybe, if you undid the top button, fixed the trousers, and paired it with a better tie, it would work! It's just when you compare it to the second one, it's not as great! (I know that's not what you want to hear! )
