Hi, this is my first post, appreciate your comments on my first tailored suit. Tailored in Singapore.

 

Suit made of 150s merino wool in herringbone pattern fabric, full canvass.

 

Front view

Side views (yes I do have a tummy..)

 

Waist coat (made same fabric & buttons with the suit)

 

Three piece suit

 

Navy blue waist coat

 

3 piece mixed

 

Working buttons sleeves

Buffalo horn buttons

Pick stitching

Pad stitching for canvass

That's one ugly suit, buddy. If you hem the pants and get the jacket sleeves lengthened (or the shirt sleeves shortened -- matter of preference), at least the suit will be technically unimpeachable. But I'm afraid you'll have to live with its stylistic features.

Looks good to me, but sleeves too short and the inseam is too long.

The suit looks big on you and I have to agree you have to hem the pants

Trousers are way too long.

Ok noted. I'll hem the pants make it shorter by maybe 2". Thanks!

The suit had to be bigger to accomodate my tummy... maybe should trim the shoulders and waist more, but I do not want it to look all tight fitting with a pot belly bulging out in the center.

this is a huge mess. I don't think there is one angle where there is not rippling.

The pictures aren't very good, but it appears the sleeve pitch is off, the jacket appears too big in general (despite the vents opening), the quarters are closed, and the front/rear balance seems off.

The side pic of your right side makes the back look like a disaster, but that could be your posture.

pants too long, sleeves too short, etc.

Honestly, I would not be pleased with this fit on a RTW suit, much less a MTM.

Other than the pants, what jumps out at me is the high button stance. It appears too high. The suit doesn't have much shaping either, it just sort of drops down. Shoulders could lay cleaner too.

Is that your natural posture?  The side shots look bad, but I can't tell if it's the cut or you artificially straightening yourself.  It looks like you're leaning back/puffing your chest (and stomach) out.

Trousers are too long IMO, I don't like any roll around the bottom when stood up. If you're going to wear short sleeves to show off your cuffs make sure the length of the jacket is short too, yours looks a little too long. Hvae it shortened by 2 inches.

This is my natural posture standing relaxed. So I think its a suit cut badly...

I agree the button is too high

The side views really look kinda wrong... There is just so much flaws with this suit, its very disappointing

I've always have doubts on tailored suit bcos I'll never how it will turn out until it is done and its not cheap. Its like taking a gamble.

Good lesson learned. I'll just stick to those off the racks suits from now

You should post this in the Tailors Fit and Feedback Thread to get some legit feedback. In my inexpert opinion, it looks ok. Not perfect of course, but a decent-fitting, if somewhat stiff and boring, suit. Lengthen sleeves and shorten trousers as others have said. I would guess that the skirt is too tight. From the side shot, it looks like the suit is too tight against your lower back/rear, which is causing some excessive rippling in the back. The front shot looks like the shoulders are significantly wider than the skirt, which may be causing the shoulders to look too big, even though the jacket may fit your shoulders perfectly. Front/back balance looks a bit off too, but that could be due to the skirt being too tight. Other than being too long, the trousers seem to fit cleanly. Are they pulled all the way up? Could just be the camera angle, but it looks like they are sagging a bit, which is making it look like you have short legs.
