@ThePetrosThat’s fairly strong. From the photo what led you to say that other than the trousers, which I agree are an embarrassment.
Where do I even begin??
1. The back is a complete mess. Pulling in every direction possible.
2. Who ever cut those sleeves honestly should be barred from ever handling a pair of shears, forever ...
3. Shoulders probably too small. Look at the divots in the sleeves (from the back photo).
4. Styling: Front Photo - Proportions are completely off for a guy your size. Gorge is way too high and the peak lapels clownish on your frame.
Really I could sit here and come up with 20 things wrong with this suit but I'm pressed for time. The suit is cut "too small" first off, and who ever did the initial measuring screwed up big time.
Secondly, the styling. Now, since this is your first bespoke suit, I'm sure you had some input here. But part of the job of a good tailor is to protect us from our own excesses. The hacking & ticket pockets, Singe breasted peak lapel, High Gorge etc. They could have helped you style this better (more classically).
I'm not even going to comment on the trousers since you've already done a good job at diagnosing the pants. But whoever gave you a 15" leg opening and that slim a cut for your trousers very clearly don't know what they are doing.
When will these guys realize that no every fellow is a SuitSupply Ad model? Trying to squeeze folk into Skinny Suits. It's 2019 and I thought we were way past that. And for a tailor of this caliber, now that's just unforgivable.
