    Hi folks, need some sf wisdom here.

    I got my first Indochino suit in June 2011. At the time, I thought it fit great for a skinny guy like myself. I started working out since then and put on some muscle on my chest, back,and shoulders so now the jacket fits pretty tight. I've come to kind of enjoy the snug feeling but I'm afraid of it ripping whenever I stretch my arms out in front and I'm not sure if it actually still looks good or not when it's this tight. Also, the tightness tends to help me keep a nicer looking posture (chest out, shoulders back).

    But anyways, I just got a job offer and decided to get a new suit with my updated measurements. The new jacket seems to fit, albeit not snugly like the previous one. Like I said, I've come to enjoy the fit of the first suit but I'm not sure if it's the proper fit anymore and I need some objective opinions. For reference, I'm about 5'7"-5'8" with a skinny frame.

    The button stance on the new suit is a little higher (about an inch or so), which feels weird when buttoning the jacket up. I kind of like having longer lapels so I was thinking of having the stance moved down.

    It's a little tough to see here but some of the fabric seems to be folding over very slightly in the back, near my armpits. Is this ok or does this mean the back is too wide?


    My shoulders are slightly pulled back here which is accentuating the creases but I'm still wondering if perhaps the armholes or sleeves themselves are too wide (or are they supposed to look like this?). I might gain some additional size on my arms in the future (or I might not) so I don't know if I should have them altered. Either way, here's a picture with my shoulders and arms in a more relaxed position, which makes the creases slightly less noticeable.


    So what do you guys think?
