    The photographs will help - at the moment it is difficult to visualise anything.

    If you do take photographs then Gshen's array is a good set - full views with and without the coat and the inside of the coat as well to show the finishing.

    That's the cloth Graham recommended to me.

    I'm going for a 2nd fitting today so will try to take some photos.

    thank you for posting the pictures. seems to be a good fit around the shoulders. for my taste, the trousers are too full for your frame and a little too long. in the side view, the 'skirt' area appears to be flaring out, but perhaps that area just needs pressing?
    more pictures would be very helpful.

    Thanks for your comments. What kind of angle would you like the photos?

    just out of curiosity, what are your chest and waist measurements? and how square are your shoulders really?

    I would consider that suit a huge disservice.

    I am no technical expert so i was hoping that others with more knowledge would chime in with specific observations. I'm going to be honest here and say that from what i can see the suit is not acceptable for a fully bespoke garment. you seem to be in good shape and its just not doing you justice, fits you like an OTR. to me it seems there are issues with the top/back of the sleeve, it needs more suppression at the waist, the 'skirt' flares out too much and the trousers need to be tapered and shortened quite considerably.
    i have met with GB and IMO they can be a little offhand with a customer who's not clear about what he wants. they can do very good work- i've seen up close stuff they made for simon crompton- but perhaps they exert themselves less when the customer is not emphatic (and also stands to give them no publicity).
    i think you need to go back and politely but firmly request alterations. please post as many views as you can in good light of front, sides, back so that people here can help you identify the problems.
