This is a new suit I just received and I'm looking to get some areas tailored. Specifically, the pants are too tight in the thigh. 2 questions for the experts: 1) The neck sits off my shirt a little depending on how I move (you can't really tell in these pics), how should I approach this? 2) I asked for higher/tighter armholes. Does this look alright? It's a tad been tight so I may have the bicep area (which happens to be my armhole almost) taken out. Curious about overall jacket proportions, I'm impossible to fit given my 5'6, short appendage frame (Neck to arm is 30"). This is my first critique, so go easy on me. Any advice/criticism is appreciated. Thanks!
This is Indochino for all of those who asked. I was looking for non-bias opinions before sharing. Thanks again!

most photoshop type software that comes pre-loaded on your computer will have that option. If you don't have anything like that pre-loaded on your computer, you can just go to an online website that allows you to upload photos, and then share the link in the post.

There's always something to nitpick, but that looks good in general. Pants are a bit too tight and tapered for my taste though.

Pants certainly too tight, but jacket doesn't look too bad. Skirt seems a bit off in one of the pics though. Any chance you can share the maker?

Overall I think it looks pretty good (nitpicking aside of course). As you've noted the pants do look a little tight.

I'm looking at the sleeve buttons and despite the bottom button being undone it looks like the placement is quite high (2"?). I think the standard is to be 1.25" from the bottom of the sleeve; this can be easily fixed if the top button is faux (without true button hole - sorry forgot the actual term). Just move the top button to the bottom.

Nice. I would choose less waist suppression.

Tell me the nitpicks, otherwise I'll never learn! The 1st button is centered right at 1.5". Unfortunately all working button holes (surgeon cuffs) so no movement for this one.

I am going to be completely in the minority here, but I don't see much wrong with the pants. Yes, they are tight by SF standards, but I love slim cut trousers, and the amazing thing about wool is that, like denim, it stretches a great deal and conforms to the body. The back of the thighs is a bit snug and a tailor could give you a little room back there (if there is cloth to let out), but, generally, if you were going for a slim cut trouser, that's what you got, and I don't think it looks half bad.

Jacket looks great, but the pants seem a bit tight in the thighs at least, but not too far off. It deffinately needs a good pressing though.

We should not be able to see the borders and outline of your penis. The trousers are too tight. The jacket looks great though.
