What you also could consider is a tobacco or chocolate brown DB. Very stylish and less obtrusive than cream. Otherwise, consider Fresco. Minnis 520 would be an ideal shade.

A longer throat between the lapels showing more shirt would make you look longer and leaner. I don't agree with your thoughts about 2X2 verses 3X2 buttoning on a DB. What you want is a defined waist set a bit higher than the buttoning point. This will define the upper body from the lower and create a upper/lower balance. The large scale shirt collar against the narrow lapels doesn't help things. It all looks out of proportion.
The collar gap mentioned isn't so much a gap as the neck opening looks too wide. Would look better closer to your neck. The tapered bottom on the trouser makes you feet look very long and you thighs look heavier.

Thanks a lot for the comments. I'll button the lower button and widen the trousers below the knees. As for the length of the jacket, there's really nothing I can do anymore.

Please do show us what the suit looks like after those modifications. I'm sure it'll look much better.

Does anyone know who this is/or where the pic could be taken from? Awesome DB, looking for something like that.

Armoury used to stock something looking like that. Ring jacket, I believe.

^^This is how I want it to look! Is it just in my head or is it my head? Thanks!

Fabric closeup (taken for WUS so forgive the watch)

I know the shoulders are a touch wide but that's something only an SF'er would really notice and I figured it's worth the $14 for a fun DB every once and a while... Now I'm second guessing if the whole ensemble (Wide shoulders, extra wide lapels) is more dramatic than its individual parts.

This looks good on you man! Your proportions looks much better than RL's, unless you want to stand out like him...
