Great pickups

The shoulders look like they fit very nice.

Am I right in thinking the suit is a little too short in the length itself?  I don't care if it is, I'm still going to wear it and love the shit out of both.  They both feel amazing.  I actually might sleep in them tonight with it being -5 by me.  Do you guys notice anything besides the sleeves that I should work with the tailor on?

A picture taken from a better angle and distance would help to tell if the suit is the right length. Can you get someone to take it for you in natural light?

The low height of the camera and that remote control pose is making things hard to see

That you in the pic JRD.

Jungle really you need a full length shot to judge length best (including feet). But if it doesn't cover the seat, PROBABLY too short.

I started a thread on jacket length where Despis and other tailors weighed in last year. "Right rule"

Oh you changed it. That's Vox
post #1852 of 37672
Better pic than first. Full length.

You know I wonder if Voxs jacket is a touch short there. I'm finding his legs heading towards too long in appearance relative to jacket. Not that they look like stilts. But perhaps he isn't that tall in real life?

Still it isn't by any means obviously too short.

JUngle.
Sleeves unfinished? Tad short but I expect room to lengthen. Looks like a keeper. Does it lie flat on the chest? Stay on your neck when you move your arms etc? Nip waist perhaps and take a shot in better light with auto flash.

U happy huh? Nice clothes will do that.

I'm uploading some right now, not natural light but all the lights on in my living room.  Sorry for the undershirt only shot.  Excuse the pant legs too.  Everything is unfinished as it is.  There looks to be about an inch to let out in the sleeves but I think the sleeves may be good.  Everything else feels like it fits really well.  My right shoulder slouches a little due to an old hockey injury which I think is apparent in this picture.

Looks pretty darn good

Length looks good to me, based on where the knuckles are falling (very close to where the coat ends -- a good thing)

One minor nitpick: does the jacket look like it's flaring a little at the hips? Maybe the tailor can let it out a little?

Not really. I think of black captoe or a very dark brown captoe when I think CBD (or "U(ltra)CBD")

Those are more of a medium brown

My 2 cents.

 

Shoulder look clean (extended shoulder there).

 

I actually think the length is fine from the front although you're shooting a little down from the camera. But seems to me balanced (leg/torso). Does it just barely cover your seat?

 

Button stance looks at your natural waist, a nice sharp V in the lapel. The sleeves look ok here, right at the wrist (was the shirt in the last pic too long in the sleeve?). Maybe hip could give you more room?

 

But really, overall a nice fine. You feel happy, yes?

JRD and I had the same thought.
