It was great or the hipster girls with bangs and glasses were? ;)

How long have you two been together? Surely you've hit the point where she realizes if you get excited she gets the benefit...

1. Shorten the jacket sleeves to show at least 1/4" of cuff, no more than 1/2", but some guys on here like to show as much as an inch in order to strive for that old timey neapolitan look.
2. Shorten the hem on the pants so that you get a medium break.
3. Its hard to judge the length of your jacket by the obscure frontal shots, but it seems to be adequate looking at the side pictures.
4. The excess fabric in the back is your major problem and it really needs to be cleaned up.
5. I can see rolls and bunching up, just below the jacket collar in the back. There is also excess fabric just behind your armpits in the back. A tailor can clean that up easily by removing the collar, opening up the center and possibly the sides of the jacket and tightening things up.
6. The jacket could use a bit of waist supression.
7. The pant width looks compatible with the drape of the suit. Slimmer pants will may make the jacket look too full compared to the pants.
8. You have sloping shoulders and a severe hunch, which be making the jacket shoulders appear to look kinda broad and droopy. Try standing up straighter and doing the shoulder against the wall rule-of-thumb test. If the shoulders feel fine to you then maybe some shoulder padding could improve that problem.


Thanks for all the tips, will get those adjustments for #7 even with out the jacket I think that's about as a trim a pair of pants I can wear with it being too fashionable , as for #8 this was a soft shouldered jacket, I think more structured Roman Shoulder suits me better, like this one:

 

 

 

Pants have already been replaced, this is an old shot.

If I had to guess, and I usually don't, given the one minute per year of age rule, you were in that corner for about thirty minutes or so.
