First Suit Fit Check? 2.0

I ordered a 40L suit after my last suit (see: http://www.styleforum.net/t/320546/first-suit-fit-check) was deemed far too short. I am worried this one is now too long, but the 40R in the same make seemed too short on me in the body (see: http://imgur.com/BJxAN).

Advice would be most appreciated.

get better pictures w/ a tripod and ask in the tailor thread.  looking better than your suits in other threads but very rtw with huge suit collar gap.

I don't own a tripod or have access to one.

What is rtw? And I would like a shirt with a semispread collar, I was just wearing something I owned for now.

Edit; Ready to wear, I see. Thanks.

The length looks just right to me, not too long at all. The collar does seem a little off with the lapels but as you want to wear a spread collar that might alleviate the problem. Overall looks pretty good!

Are the sleeves okay? I am worried as this suit has functional buttons so I am not sure if I can tailor it.

Can someone link me to the tailor thread?

The 40R looked better. I had this exact same problem with one of my suits. I had to get a 40L to get long enough sleeves (working buttons be damned) but at the same time the body looked off because of the length and the buttoning point. Got the suit jacket shortened and it looks much more balanced. In your case the 40R looked better. People here on SF are far too hung up on what is "classic". You want something that looks balanced and on a suit with a higher buttoning point the length needs to be shorter or it will elongate your body and look weird. If the buttoning point was lower it would look fine in 40L length.

They both need work, but if length is your main concern, I like the Regular a lot more.

40R too short for sure; its buttoning point is almost in the middle of your rib cage and its skirt doesn't cover your ass/crotch...

 

sleeve length for 40L too long, check if you can knock 1/2" off and still look okay.

 

Again, ask the tailors; they know better.

Thanks.

I am also wondering, I see suits that fit like this: http://i.imgur.com/FjGpU.jpg

They have some natural pull away at the front button to reveal the underlying shirt, opposed to just hanging flat down. What is it that is preventing my suit from fitting that way?

It's a matter of design, not fit. Whatever the design, however, the shirt should never peek out under the jacket's buttoning point.

You're not 38 or a 40 bro. See the lapels bowing? You're chest is bigger

Who makes this btw? Cut is not very flattering

So you think a suit that fits like this is incorrect: http://www.clubmonaco.ca/graphics/media/polo/clubmonaco//Content/images/local/en-ca/PageImages/MLP/1003_MLP_Suit_Thumb.jpg
