What is throwing me off is that your shirt sleeves are too long. Either move the button on the cuff or have them taken in at the shoulder.
By the way, it also looks like the neck of that Blue and White striped shirt is quite large. You might want to have a pro measure you for the best fit.

The neck is WAY to big on the blue shirt.  All my shirts are size 14.5 neck but my BB shirts (including the blue striped one) fits terribly.  I'm convinced BB is off on their neck sizes.

 

Also, I'm going to get another SuitSupply navy blue just in a normal worsted wool thats slightly slimmer with a longer body.  I'll compare the two when the new one comes in.

this thread really needs to find its way back on track, and fast. critiquing peoples teeth, and saying that a tie "blows ass" really do not add anything useful to this forum.you dont have to like the tie, but please try and state your point like an adult.

sheesh.

How does this SC fit?  I just bought it from SuitSupply.  Its the new fall line's copenhagen jacket.




Two more pics of the jacket:





I've noticed you're very thin but tall. Your jackets and shirts could use a little slimming. In this case, the jacket sleeves are a bit shirt and your shirt sleeves are a bit long. Unfortunately, SuitSupply does functioning buttonholes making it not correctly possible to lengthen them. Body length is more subjective, but it's a bit short. However, that's more of a decision for you. What size is the jacket? I'd pick a longer model just for the sleeves as they cannot be lengthened.

I don't think the jacket sleeves are too short. Rather, the shirt sleeves are too long. TKE, take PSG's advice and move the button on the cuff to narrow the diameter. Easiest way to take care of that.

Looks a bit snug in the waist in the second pic. What's going on with the arm ripple by the shoulder in the 1st and 3rd pics? Opposite sides respectively.

Thanks for the feed back everyday.  The blue stripped shirt is a little too big all around, sleeves and neck.  I think the length of the sleeves on the jacket look better with the white shirt since those sleeves fit me wel.  The next blazer I'm buying is a more traditional blazer with a slightly longer body.

I think the jacket fits correctly. Your shirts make things look off. Slightly longer in the blazer won't hurt, but I don't think this one looks too short.

Everyone in here please shut up about someone's god damn teeth and stop being nasty. I'm going to start smacking down when I see this stuff. Keep it to constructive criticism and treat each other like you would want to be treated. Already handed out a couple of week timeouts for the tie thing and the teeth comments. Please don't make me have to enforce on you.

Jacket sleeve lengths can still be lengthened or shortened even when there are real button holes. When shortening the sleeves, the amount to be shortened should not be so much so as to make the edge of the sleeves touch the bottom button on each sleeve. When lengthening the sleeves, the maximum amount to be lengthened is usually 1.5 inches although, by the the time this is done, the distance from the edge of the sleeve to the bottom button would be too great.

Looks like the sleeves are rotated a bit too far forward?  Like the look of the jacket generally.

Looks great. Don't listen to the classical bullshit, man.

That happens with a lot of OTR jacket--especially on guys with thin arms/no back muscle (myself included). It's an easy fix at a tailors; he'll just pinch in the extra fabric. (I'm guessing he'll have some excess fabric at the back, under the arm, too.)

But it has now gotten to the point that Newbies are coming in for some help and advice and are being attacked. The whole Cape Caper was so over-the-top it was downright embarrassing and one had to weed through pages of posts just to see a post about any other outfit or topic. If I were an administrator here, I would worry about the loss of advertising contracts as this board goes from a place where civilized, upscale gentlemen can discuss the finer things in life to a Frat Boy free-for-all.
Is everyone else OK with what is happening here, or have all the other veterans just exited in disgust?
