I'm going to rebutt each of your points:


1). Complexion

Regarding the complexion thing: I've never heard of a complexion that doesn't go well with gray.

I never pay much attention to the complexion advice on Andyland, but here it is: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?81952-Skin-tone-and-colors

That gray looks very nice



The famous "Phat Guido" of Styleforum used to wear a lot of grey. One of the most stylish members here ever. (He was also Asian)

2). Jacket is too big

It's not, see picture above


3). Pants need altering

The length looks perfect to me if you want "no-break"



You do need to wear your pants higher though. See how the pockets are flaring out? Not a good look. If you wore them like that at a low height when the tailor fitted you, then you probably need to ADD length




Also, ditch that thick 2 inch belt. That is NOT meant to be worn with a suit. A nice 1.25 inch wide belt is meant for a suit.

Like this C&J

The brown raw silk I like to wear with cream/off-white linen jackets and suits. The wool one I think I have worn with a gray flannel suit.

that tri color looks like it would work with almost anything.

Oh so that's why people hated my belt so much. Brand whore. I bought a Zegna belt thinking it was appropriate for suits. Dumb. I will jump on that C&J belt. Anything C&J, I will jump on. 

 

The complexion

 

Northeastern Asians (Koreans) look bad in that color of grey. A light grey would suit me very well. I just look so darn old compared to when I am in my navy blue suits. 

 

 

 

 

While I was googling grey suits...

What the heck is this? It pooped up in my google search of grey suits (Click to show)

I gotta say Rudals. I like the fit of that suit on you. Not a huge fan of the combination (shirt and tie) with that suit. As you said, the cut displeases you, and that's fine. And if selling it is necessary to get the formosa, then sell away. But as it stands, that is your best fitting suit (again fit =/=cut)

How about a "oh dear lawd"
post #5574 of 37396
noodles if you sell that suit, i will cut u...
post #5575 of 37396
Okay.
Then tell me what I need to do besides lengthening the pants and tapering.
How do I wear this?
Does the jqcket need work too?
post #5576 of 37396
what exactly did u have done to it already besides hemming?

Major issues I see are

-Wear pants at hip bones
-Ditch that 2 inch belt, forever
post #5577 of 37396
Nothing besides hemming.
So wear the pants lower?

I have these two, they are both excellent.

Srsly? Press the little icon to the left of the paperclip and follow the instructions. Very easy.

In principle, I like this one though it has a "red white and blue" feel to it so I wonder how it would work (I think it's actually brown not red, but nevertheless...).

Honestly, I don't spend that much time on Style Forum these days and trying to spend less time, so embedding pics is not something I devoted much time to figuring out. But I wanted to get those lovely Vandas up!

I like the easy going camaraderie of this thread and I find myself checking it periodically despite trying to stay away. People do seem to be genuinely good-natured and short conversations like this one on striped ties still give me ideas.
BTW: what do you pair the Vandas you highlighted with?

I think we already discussed this fit in the Vanda thread, but re-posting it here to give Vanda some love. (Pic is meh because of bad lighting.)

...so all my other suits are piece of dumps???????

A little bit off the current topic, but I've been browsing the last few pages of this thread seeing your pics and it occurred to me that you look best with very high contrast looks. I.e., dark ties like navy and I think I saw a dark green one? That maroon/burgundy tie, as much as it is an SF darling, doesnt seem to go with your complexion very well. Neither does the greyish PS.

 

This one for example is excellent, makes you look a lot fresher and more dynamic than in the pics above:
