What are you talking about? He looks fine in the first two pictures. In the last one, his head is down but his left foot isn't even on the ground so it's not a good representation of his posture.

Perhaps it's just me, but it looks like his shoulders are rolled forward (judging by where his hands/arms hang) and his entire torso has a slight inward bent. Not saying that he's slouching, but he could definitely be standing straighter.

Oh come on guy, you're commenting on posture....


Wear a neat pattern tie, not a stripe. I'd probably wear a white Oxford shirt, seems rediculous I know, but it's a staple of the American business man, and you're a noob so you don't want to be too perfect.

All I'm saying is that if he's going in for an interview, his suit should take a backseat to how he carries himself. Besides, the only major issue with the fit of his suit has already been addressed dozens of times over.

You are probably the best dressed guy going for an interview, althoough the pants could be a longer.

So far, I've only had the lengths adjusted (sleeves, pants). Would any of you mind pointing out to me alterations that you think need to be made? My biggest issue is the break of the pants. I'd like my suit to look a little more slim and modern (without being obnoxious, of course), but the current break makes the pants flare out and look bad. How do I rectify this issue?
I'd greatly appreciate any advice that you might be willing to offer.
Thank you!

It's already too slim. The sleeves are OK but  I prefer them longer. And btw, who hemmed the trousers. The front should just hit the shoe and the rear pitched  3/4" longer. Wear solid socks.

You can at least make your trousers longer, as well as the sleeves.
