    I would sell my immortal soul to get jackets that fit me as well as those fit you.

    There. I said it. :satisfied:

    These are examples to emulate. Perfectly, flawlessly executed.

    Needs more contrast between the pants and the jacket. It almost looks like you are trying to assemble a suit from unmatched parts, but it doesn't work. So, work with what you have in your closet, and don't wear this SC with these trousers.

    The jacket fits better than the last one (the button stance is much better).

    I would think a good bespoke tailor could potentially save your soul, just sayin' not proselytizing.

    This is a suit. The lighting was pretty bad and I couldn't capture the correct colors. But to clarify, this is a full suit.

    I think you've got artificial light up top and natural light coming in on the trousers and the two pieces end up looking like different colors. If they in fact match I think you're looking pretty sharp. It's casual, but the fit seems good and you appear comfortable (for a robo pose :D) so good job.

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    The suit will actually be going back for some alterations; sleeves and waist are both a bit trim for my taste. It's a much leaner fit overall--a little too much, honestly. I was aiming for something slightly less full than the sport coat pictured. I love the sc fit but thought this dressier suit would benefit from a cleaner chest, though not quite as clean as it is currently.
