    To me it looks tight and it doesn't look like the collar would be snug around your neck if your shirt was buttoned. It almost looks like it was purchased too large and you had the waist nipped in.

    As far as the length it is hard to tell your true proportions because of the short hem on your trousers. I kind of think the length is ok if you had longer trousers, but the hem does make the jacket seem a bit long.

    Thanks, PB , SB, and CP for the feedback. The only concern I have is that it looks kinda of um, sloppy I guess or boxy? Shoulders extended too much where it looks a little large? I guess I am nuts and trying to find faults. I really love the suit though, the quality is amazing and the color is really nice in person.

    The last pic is lying. Those socks are navy and gray, not black and gray.

    TB, I think the tie is too formal/sober for the fit. Something a bit more appropriate, and I could be in support of this. Not that my endorsement is the standard, of course...

    I don't see any of those flaws that you point out. I think it will grow on you. Many of us in efforts to look good and tailored end up wearing clothes that are too small.

    Citan - this is one of the best fitting suit you've posted - good silhouette, much better than the tighter ones that accentuate your hips.

    I agree, I would have gone with a knit.

    Okay, TB. Now that the misanthropic hair has weighed in on my side, I think it might be gospel.

    :lol:

    What do you mean "hinging" on the button?

    I think he means the button is a fulcrum.

    Makes sense. What would be a remedy for that, if any?
