I think it's perfection.
I'd would, without hesitation, patronize any tailor I thought could give me a convincing version of that suit and not a disappointing simulacrum.
Skinny long face, stingy brim on the bowler and an skinny lapel- works (could even go down 1/4")
See, I don't like anything about that pic. Bowler too big, lapels too large, vest too gimmicky. Ralph, as you note, has all the right features for narrower lapels, yet they didn't give them to him. Instead, he looks like a kid playing dress up in dad's clothes.
If there must be a faux Steed, at least put him in proper Steed-style gear.
