    Had to rush out and buy myself a suit for an apprenticeship interview---- do you think this is acceptable in a business setting as its a one button suit and what do you think of the fit ? Still need to get a slim belt to match the shoes

    The fit is pretty admirable for off the rack. I'm no professional, but if you told me it was MTM I would probably believe you.

    As far as one button suits go, there's a really good chance that nobody will even notice. Yes, one button suits are pretty casual, and in a conservative office setting they may not fly, but I wouldn't exactly worry too much about what you have there. We don't close the bottom button on suits anyway.

    I think the arms are a little long are you supposed to have up to an inch of shirt cuff showing ? Other than that I'm quite happy with it and think it fit is ok / 89% fit in the jacket. But I suppose you get what you pay for and considering my time frame / the first suit iv got by myself I'm content with it

    Difficult to tell with your poses, jacket seems a bit short. Shortening the sleeves may reduce the contrast. Colour is a bit light for an interview but it depends on the industry/ sector. A bit fashion forward but not bad, and 99% of people will find it acceptable.

    Sleeves are definitely too long, think it needs to be at least an inch shorter. Wear one of the shirts that you'll typically wear to work and get a tailor to do the exact measurements.

    Length looks fine to me for a one-button. It's not as serious a color as the typical business suits and you're a young chap who's in decent shape, don't worry about the length.
