"Tight" and "narrow" is relative, and frankly personal preference, and you can't tell all proportions from one robo-pose picture that measures less than 4"x2" on the monitor, from a picture taken as I quickly turn around to beat the timer. Besides a little snugness in the waist, as I already acknowledged and causes the quarters to open a little, it does not restrict my movement, pants are not anywhere near nuthugging in the crotch or riding up my crack, and I can sit properly at my desk, sign term sheets and documents, gossip at the water cooler, walk to lunch, drive to calls, and drink beer, all comfortably. All of your "observed issues" have had no bearing on the success I have in my job, and I wear this suit usually once a week. I'm a slim, athletic guy, and I don't like "classic" proportions or sack suits. And by the way, i didn't make any adjustments to the pants, so every single person who has purchased a suit supply suit is wearing what you say is too tight.
OP - the more useful comment is that you should first contemplate your environment, i.e. where will this suit be worn, around who, what is currently acceptable or not acceptable, etc. Are you working with young people? Are you working with old people? do they wear suits, or just chinos and an occasional sportcoat? stuff like that is what I'd consider during your search.
While I said the Napoli is more business-like than fashion, I admit that the jacket is cut a touch slimmer and shorter, say than your OTR JAB suit or a Brooks Brothers Madison.
