Does this charcoal suit fit me?

Just got a new charcoal suit offline and tried it on. It feels a bit tight in the back and. Overall, seems like the shoulders fit.
The pants feel a bit weird in the waist area. It's like the paints go really high and there's a lot of "stuff" there. Not sure how to describe it. Also, if you look at the end picture, there's some weird, minor ruffling in the breast, not sure what causes that. It's only really apparent when it casts a shadow.

Some minor alteration should help the jacket fit better.

The jacket looks good; It has a nice shape. That chest wrinkling can sometimes be caused by a dropped shoulder or just slight fit intricacies, but for RTW it's mostly fine and from your first shot you don't even notice it so I wouldn't make too big a deal of it.

I don't see any major issues with the pants which you mention, but it's possible they just need to get the wast+seat cleaned up at the tailor and you should be in business. It could also be your t-shirt bunching up causing issues; make sure you try it with a dress shirt and see if it's the same issue.

Thanks guys. The jacket feels a bit tight. The pants have a weird feeling in the lower belly/groin area where I feel like I'm wearing a cummerband.

Jacket looks nice. The pants could be a bit slimmer but it is up to personal taste.
