good point, but no. haha. I purchased this on-line since I've had a Dior before in 46EU and the one I had fit good on me. Perfect length, perfect shoulder, perfect waist, and so on. However, I made a mistake on this one. Lesson learned.

I sense hostility in here..but since I'm new here I'll try to be fair and say that the suit is too big as typically it should just be long enough to cover your butt. That said, I wouldn't have it cut too slim as it might just enhance his already slim frame.

Have the jacket shortened by 2"-3"and it will pass. There is plenty of length to play with so measure from the pocket slit and 9" down and see how much excess there is. You are dealing with a low gorge as well but this can be compensated somewhat with a wider tie. Keep a few 4" ties handy for this jacket or at least a 3.25" tie. This, in my opinion will be the cheapest option if you choose to keep it. An off-white linen pocket square will help it as well.

Not the worst fit in most places, except it is way too long (not sure if it can be saved).

Even though those 9 percent claim that they speak English as their native language, some of them seem to speak worse English than I do........ sadly.

That is one great advise.

The jacket is too long for you I'm afraid, but the length can easily be altered with a good tailor.

The problem with this jacket is the length of it. The length, in my sight, seems to be too long. I don't know if I'm the only one that thought that, though. Please give me an opinion on what you think I should do for this jacket (in term of alteration).

 

Good thing about the jacket: The shoulder tend to perfectly fit me.

P.S. Please don't mind the trousers, and the room, it's not my room :D

It's a good model for you, but go down a size.
A little long too, but not very IMHO
