I would have considered either having the shoulders re-cut if i trusted the tailor ... or not doing anything to them at all and letting them go. Not a fan of the 3 button rendition on the second one. As it stands now they fit decent in the body, but overall it may not be worth the money spent in my eye. I have had to go through that iteration many times and have learnt to just let stuff go if its not going to get me the key things i need in fit (shoulder, chest, lapel width, button height)

Sorry for the some what harsh feedback.

If so, is it the version with patch pockets or flap pockets?

The version with patch pockets seems to have bigger lapels.

Solar your outfit is almost awesome, the only part i don't see is any shirt cuff showing, but that's minor.

 

A beautiful outfit like that would work great anywhere in the world in my opinion. 

 

You set a really high standard for yourself with your first post, but Keep doing it!! 

 

@Terror : You are looking very good too.

No apology necessary. As it was, the shoulders were taken in from the center seam on the grey jacket, and yes, the results, though better, are not as optimal as either having more work done on them, or starting from scratch. As it is, I don't wear sports jackets that often, and for what they are, and what I wear them for, they're "good enough" for more casual occasions. I also agree that I'd have been happier had the blue jacket been a two-button, not a hard three.

I didn't spend a vast amount of money on the alterations, and if I decide to get rid of the jackets at a later date, it won't have been a large loss of cash.

Thanks for the honest (and informed) opinion.
