Also, to really nitpick just slightly reduce the trouser length.

Stylistically, I don't care for the contrast collar shirt.

I think the angle of the pic is a little low, so it's making the jacket look shorter. It covers my butt, and I actually had the front of the jacket cut longer than the back to fix a balance issue. I'm definitely bow legged, and that's a problem I've always had with suit pants. I'll talk to my tailor and see what they can do about it. Like Caustic Man just posted, this isn't a contrast collar shirt, it's just a standard light blue.

what's the weight and color of the cloth?

I have pretty medium shoulders, not too broad, not too narrow. I can try experimenting with some slightly wider shoulders next time. The cloth is a pretty standard medium grey twill, Gladson fabric. It's a four season fabric, right around 10oz.

So he advice last time was to try a darker tie and lighter trousers. I half got it, hopefully the medium grey trousers are a balance. Need to get a new pair of tan slacks

Bah, halfway between navel and sternum is hardly armpit territory. Now hard threes on the other hand...

(as I said, certifiable wacko when it comes to buttoning points)

I have a giant head. Crown to jaw, it accounts for 15.4% of my height. I'm 6.5 heads tall while the average person is 7.5. (Edit: Just spent a while reading about ideal head-to-body ratios in art. It depressed me)

 

However, the argument might be made that a lower buttoning point might offset a larger head by showing more shirt and tie...

I prefer blue and grey tones simply because they go well against my skin tone

Thanks! I had the option of standard vs wide lapels, and I'm glad I went with the wider option. They're about 4.25", and I was worried they might look too wide, but I was very happy with the way they balance out on the suit.

Nothing beats a grey suit with a nice navy tie on white shirt look.

Ah, I think you have me confused with Clapeyron. He's the guy in PNG.

You've changed your opinions over the weekend. I hope it was a good one!
