Please let me know what you think. Am trying to establish a relationship with this tailor so your comments would really help me perfect my pattern. 

 

Thanks very much guys, and I really appreciate your help!

looks nice.
it seems there may be some issues with the sleeve pitch.
sleeve length could be 0.25-0.5 inch shorter IMO
I'm not liking the hacking pocket.

It's short and this is exaggerated by the rise of the pants leaving inches of shirt showing in the quarters.

Thanks Hugh and Mario! Yes, I did get the feeling it was a bit short. Do you think it's because the jacket length itself is short or (as I thought), the button stance is a tad too high?

I think more like the button stance is a tad too high.

A little from column A, a little from column B, IMHO. I can't help but feel that this jacket was made for a shorter guy than yourself overall. If you do decide to keep it, I would suggest trying some higher waisted pants to minimize how much shirt is inevitably going to show.

Yeah, these are my thoughts exactly. The jacket was made by Y William Yu in Hong Kong, and overall, I'm very pleased with it, especially as it is the first attempt. From what I have read on SF, first tries are seldom perfect! 

 

I tried wearing higher trousers, https://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/403819_10151072817707354_1908956298_n.jpg , what do you think? Does it still look like it's made for someone shorter?

I like it a lot. Who's the maker?

It's excellent. Just make sure you wear a nice lightweight Gucci loafer with it and not some heavy wingtip that will make you look like a geeky nerd.

Nor the ticket pocket.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Though it seems like the ticket pocket and the hacking pockets are not getting much love here! The jacket was made by Y William Yu in Hong Kong. As I said, for a first try, I am very pleased with the work and will definitely be heading back. It also helps that the guy in charge (Andy) is a very nice and helpful man. 

 

Will post pictures of the back asap.

Looking nice, maybe you can lengthen the jacket a bit then lower the button stance slightly when you lengthen the jacket.

How much is it if you do not mind? Can PM me if you are not comfortable.

PM'ed! Also, is it actually possible to lower button stance?
