Glad that you said it cause, yes, there might be something wrong cause the jacket doesn't look short, it's short. Measure it.

Do not shorten the jacket, it's already quite a bit short, in my opinion. I'll not comment on the shoulder line as the tailor's style is very far from my taste, but bringing them in a bit would suit you better, in my opinion. Btw, the sleeve seems to need some rotating, but those pictures are not very good.

Regarding the trousers, tightening them will not resolve the problem, as your diagnosis is wrong, in my opinion, they suffer from long back balance and no leg opening in this world will solve this problem.

Did your tailor mention some of those alterations?

The jacket length will remain the same. Yes, the shoulder will definitely be brought in and they are not in the so to say final stage. I will post more photos of the shoulders, sleeves and the overall jacket when it fully done for you all to check it out and tell me what you think. As for the trousers, I am not sure I fully understand you but the tailor did mention there will be some alterations to them.

HC - nice colors, but i would have guesses the jacket to be part of a suit.

Spoo - nice casual look, would like it better without a jacket, or with a sweater. just my 2 cents.

Many of my pants are, indeed, too long for SF tastes. These in particular are less so. What they are is caught on the tops/backs of the shoes. baldy[1].gif

Gotta hand it to u guise- GMMcL, Spoo, HC some very nice fits here.

 

Opinions about chocolate and caramel/Sienna together appreciated-  too close?. 

Hober, Drakes, Vass - the usual suspects.

I don't think there's any problem with colour contrast.  But as they're both solid, I kind of wish the jacket was a windowpane or something.  Pleasant overall, though.
