    Depends on how conservative the environment you're wearing them in is. But if you have the figure and they'd work in the environment you're in, why the hell not?

    They do not conform to the classical definition of a well fitting suit.

    one of the problems you'll notice it the pant pockets opening up on the sides. this tends to happen when suits get too tight for yourself.

    other than that, the suits look fine, but they must be rather uncomfortable to wear all day long.

    it's more of a style thing. if you're able to pull it off, why not?

    The back the shoulders. The vest looks like he outgrew it.

    I disagree. Notice the pulling of the material near the jacket's button, the divots in the shoulders, the sleeves are so tight that they bunch up on the arm rather than hang evenly. The pant pockets are not even close to the only problem.

    Yes they are too slim. You have a good figure though and would look great loosening up a tad while keeping with the slim silhouette. At the moment it is a little uncomfortable to look at and appears 'stuffy.'

    Yes, too cinched at the middle/waist. The third suit really exaggerates this because of the vertical stripes.

    The second look would actually work if you were attending an outdoor, sporty function. If the waists were let out a little, they would work perfectly well.

    Just my 0.02

    I used to follow this guy on Instagram. I'm almost positive his suits and shirts are all MTM.

    Agreed. I find them to appear more costume than suit.
