    Overall it looks good. But it seems as if your pants and sleeves could be shortened a little. But again, it could just be the picture.

    I hope it's the picture, I assume your left jacket sleeve isn't actually longer than your right sleeve?
    If both are the same, which depicts it correctly?

    Shirt looks like it has a little too much extra fabric.
    Pants look a tad long indeed. They also look relatively wide, but not extremely wide.

    Overall I'd say you look ok though, you could wear this without problems. The above is relatively minor criticism.

    Also, it looks like you are wearing a black/very dark pocket square? If so, I would drop that.

    Started typing whilst old pictures weren't there yet...

    Jacket sleeves are definitely a little too long, I would have them taken in a little. This comes down to preference, but here's the general idea:
    [​IMG]


    Pants are hard to say, you have a forward stance which makes them hang straight and look the right size in the back, but cause a pretty high break in the front. Would probably leave as is.

    Your stance with the fact that you're holding your arms back is probably also causing the puckering at the shoulders. This isn't really 'fixable' in this jacket I think, but you could try to let your arms hang down straight, then it'll probably be way less pronounced.

    Still remain with my previous statement, overall fit looks ok, you just have a very specific stance which causes these 'problems'. Whenever buying new clothes you could pay attention to this [​IMG]

    The vest looks too big in various places, including the collar, but the length seems right. The shirt also does not fit well, and the total look is subpar.

    thank you very much
    I've already altered the vest and I'll take a picture for the final result.

    To be honest, which not everyone really wants, all of the items other than the last are swamping you both in length and width.

    The latest one however is notably better than the others. I'd argue the jacket sleeves are "the right length" for the shirt but that the shirt itself is too long and thus so is the jacket. If this is how you like your shirts then the jacket is ok.

    All of the photos of the jackets have similar creases forming in the upper sleeves which shouldnt be there whilst your arms are straight down. Are these all the same brand, being made by the same person?

    Hello again and thank you for the interest.

    My back is probably the cause that the shoulders are at different height and then the length of the sleeves are different. Measured from the neck the shoulder+arm length are equal.

    Perhaps a little too broad across the shoulders as well perhaps.

    GBR chimes in with constructive criticism as usual.

    were all of these garments made for you recently.

    the grey stripe is awful
    all of the garments have shoulders that are too wide.
    you hold your arms to the back causing the break at the sleeve
    all of the garments gap at the neck.
    by today's standards, your pants are all too wide at the bottom and too long.
    sleeve lengths on some are too long as well
