Red lines are where he marked it. This is not my jacket. The below one is though. I was going for maybe .5" total suppression but he marked more than that..
So, I just received my sports coat from Suit Supply, which also is my first sport coat ever. I'm just 18, so I have a long way to go.
I know that I need to shorten my sleeves, but not how much. I am also not sure about the length, is the jacket too long? Is there anything else I need to fix, or should I return the jacket because it's too big?

Edit: My thighs look super skinny in these pictures, it may be the angle. I'm usually not that skinny (I think).
I may be wrong but I think that may be too big on you. The shoulders are too wide. You're not supposed to have the creases on the very top of your sleeves just below the shoulders. scroll up to mine for a blazer that fits well in the shoulders.
eta: Plus one on camera angle. Get new pics from chest level a decent distance away. 15 feet maybe.
Couldn't it be the shirt, underneath, that makes the wrinkles? Because when I wear it nude, it seems like there are less (or none) wrinkles around the shoulders. Am I right, or is this just a placebo?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Edit2: Anothing about my shoulders. My shoulders are placed where I have marked it at the picture below. Is this why the shoulders are too big? The red area is where my shoulders are compared to the green area, where it's just an empty bubble.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yup, it's my fault. I'm on gaining diet right now, hoping to gain weight to fit in sports coats and suits.
It's a size 44R(EU)/34(US), which is the smallest size. The shoulders have also more padding than any other jackets from SS.
Edit: Is it also possible to make the shoulders fit if I gain weight and increase my shoulders by working out?
I understand. I have tried the SS thread, but they weren't very helpful like you guys.
You shouldn't wear jackets like that. Like the advice I got above, wear them like you would out in the world. Shirt and tie. And with a shirt and tie, and standing like you would in 'real life' (not like you would in a military school) you're going to have those marks.
Pressing your arms firmly to your sides as to remove the wrinkles is more like lying than fixing the issue. They're there and unfortuantely they won't go away. Sorry bud.
I see SuitSupply sells 32r's.. get a 32r.
