Buttons will be swappable. Jacket roomy enough to fit over a sweater. This is the first basted fitting.

Please ignore the trousers, they were cut with a fishtail back for braces, but in the pics they are supported from my hips sans braces.

The jacket seems too big. Thick sweater?

IMHO, the shoulders should be a tad narrower (not so simple) and the trousers a bit shorter (easy fix).

I don't know how you're built, but your shoulders look overly-extended. Makes you look square, like a refrigerator. Make sure the buttons go on straight. The placeholders look crooked.

Looks like too much fabric in the chest (drape?!), and you can't tell from the front you have any waist suppression.

The jacket seems the balloon out in front of you are the waist. It isn't you, it appears to be the material, or the way you are standing.

Also, for my tastes, the buttons are unnaturally high.

I don't have a problem with the front other than the button placement looks odd. Put them all in a line and go with something dark brown horn, IMO.

The back seems to have too much fabric across the shoulders down to the waist.

too much shoulder padding, cut too boxy, jacket a bit too long for you, pants too full and long.

I wouldn't get my fucking hair cut in a dump like that. Look at the floor, the cabinets. The place is a hole. You expect them to make you a beautiful suit?

Buttons look far too high. Is OP standing on a slope or does he naturally tilt down to his right? Shoulders too padded and "square".

Jacket looks a bit large in almost every dimension.
