The feedback thread for in-progress garments seems a little light on feedback recently, so I thought I'd ask you lot for your thoughts
Just returned from my fitting at Graham Browne in London. I have requested a number of adjustments (specifically, the shape of the waist; the thighs and sleeves to remove some of the fullness; the seat of the trousers to have them fall more neatly. I don't think that's a true button pull, but then I am taking a lot of headache pills today), but as this is SF, I'll invite interested parties to offer their own (no nitpicks) and I can bring them up with the tailors when I visit them again soon
The photographs don't serve the faille wool material very well and my rudimentary Photoshopping couldn't bring them to life either (it's an admittedly harshly lit room), but I think the colour is almost accurate, in both cases:

Shoulder needs a bit of left out, everything seems good.

As fit is concerned, it seems that there are sleeve pitch problems (more severe on the left sleeve), but perhaps it is the way that your arms are hanging in this particular moment.

As my personal preferences are concerned, I would extend the shoulders, lower the gorge, built up the chest (trying to compensate for the skirt), let the waist out a bit and taper the trousers from the knee about an inch.

Barims - are you going for a 70's vibe with this? Because the pants look like something off a disco floor. They're too baggy all around. People have already pointed out the sleeve pitch problems but I'd go so far as to say there is too much roping in the shoulders as well. That could be an after effect of the pitch problems though. Just looks off to me, especially in the close up shot.

Accepting that this suit is still under construction, the maroon suit posted a few days ago fit so much better.

The style by most, if not every Swedish designer is way too short and tight for my personal taste.

Agreed. I have a soft spot for short trousers though, guess it's a love for 60's mod aesthetics.

Dude, do you address all people as dudes?

I had a job interview for a middle office position at a BB investment bank today. How did I do?
