    The jacket is way too short. That is constructive. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The only way that suit is wearable in public is if you leave it unbuttoned, otherwise, as others have said, it looks comically short- up to 6 inches too short (to give a sense of scale as to how bad that is, men's warehouse probably wouldn't make a customer pay for a jacket that was more than 1 inch off from the ideal). That being said, if you leave it unbuttoned it has a hipster, trendy look to it, but you absolutely must not wear that in a business setting with the button closed.

    There are slight breaks at the bottom of the pant legs, is that fashion don't?

    Are skinny ties still cool?


    A slight break is good. Yours is just a hair past a slight break and into a full break.

    Skinny ties were never cool to cool people.

    The only thing to do is to throw this one away and start over again with something longer and masculine. You could keep the trousers, but that's it. Also, next time, avoid black.

    It's almost a bolero-style jacket, which generally is seen on a woman's suit. Well, or a toreador's.

    Constructively, I don't think there's a solution, other than just having the confidence to carry it after fixing what's fixable (length of break and sleeves).

    It's a bit of a write-off, unless you're really committed to the idea of a femininely short coat. The other issues are details compared to that problem.

    It looks like a waiter's uniform.

    Exactly. Looks like you are a waiter at a wedding reception. Ditch the suit jacket.

    That would not have helped with many of this forum.

    Yeah the 'quips' (to be charitable) are just something you'd have to get used to.

    Jacket sleeves are a touch long but everything else seems to fit great.
