In many ways it looks quite good but;

The sleeves look way too short - especially the left one.
There is some rumpling at the back - not too serious and most would not even notice it.
The trousers do not look quite right in the thighs but that might just be how they are sitting on your shoe - see the sixth photo. Nothing to worry about though.
Next time ask for a heavier lining. I have noticed on several tailors (Not Chan.Yao or Yu) that the lining is far too lightweight which allows the construction of the coat to be seen behind which is not good at all. Even in HK that does not make the coat too warm.

On detail, I assume that the trousers have the standard pocket (for HK tailors) in the waistband and the coat a ticket pocket? I assume that you did not ask for any more nor did Lee Baron offer them.

The sleeves are the one to look at but otherwise it is a decent looking suit, well done.


I look forward to you posting the same array of views of the blue suit.

I admittedly do find the back somewhat "hourglassy" - but perhaps that is simple your figure... do you work out your shoulders/back more than your chest/arms?

 

Thanks a lot for your comments, really appreciated.  What would you advise I do? Get the sleeves of the suit lengthened a cm or so? or have my shirt's altered slightly?  I am able to smooth out the ruffling on the back so it looks crisp with just my hand so I don't think its an issue.  The assumptions you made regarding detail are correct :) I will take your advice and ask for a heavier lining for sure next time, great advice so thanks!  No, I do not work out my shoulders/back more lol.

All in all I think it is a very nice suit and it fits you well.  You can be proud and wear it with confidence.  The only issue is the sleeve length.  I understand that some men prefer to show a bit more cuff than the traditional 1/4 inch, but I think that too much sleeve is showing- even being liberal.

I might suggest taking your suits and shirts to a local tailor and have them done together so that they are all uniform.  The main thing is not to be worrying about your cuffs all day.  That will detract from your poise and confidence. 

Get them set up just right and as you interview your mind will be in the right place- not on your cuffs! 

Good luck!

Thank you for your comment!  I agree with you, It's a shame because I did actually ask Peter Lee to take the sleeve length up a tiny bit when they were pretty much perfect before - bit of a newbie mistake.  I will take your advice and get the sleeves lengthened a tiny bit.  

 

regards,

I'm still learning too, but it's a great way to invest your time and effort!  (and money!)

I think they normally make the left cuff bigger for the watch. its kind of falling out the suit sleeve too much. The shirt itself looks  a little baggy. Suit looks nice, could use

some improvements on the soulder pitch but minor
