I would actually let the waist out a bit. As for the sleeves, don't they ride up too much when you bend your arms? The front could be cleaner (which doesn't mean tighter) around the pectorals/shoulders.

has this shirt been washed a few times?
if not, the sleeves will be too short after the third wash

The sleeves ride up a bit but not enough to be hidden under the suit sleeve. As for the front, the shirt wasn't ironed before I put it on, which might have something to do.

Yes, the shirt has been worn and washed several times. I like my jacket sleeves a tad on the short side, Ã la YFYF, and the shirt sleeves peeked out way too much pre hemming, now it's about a quarter to half an inch.

Thanks for the input!

it is the cuff circumference that controls the sleeve length. so you may find the sleeves feel a bit short when sitting at a desk

otherwise the shirt looks fine

I would say things look pretty good. Any criticism is probably verging on nitpicking.

You're of course right. However in more casual environments I like to rock the unbuttoned cuff look and for that they need to be a bit shorter… from one of the best posts in the Sartorialist:
