    I've noticed you're very thin but tall. Your jackets and shirts could use a little slimming. In this case, the jacket sleeves are a bit shirt and your shirt sleeves are a bit long. Unfortunately, SuitSupply does functioning buttonholes making it not correctly possible to lengthen them. Body length is more subjective, but it's a bit short. However, that's more of a decision for you. What size is the jacket? I'd pick a longer model just for the sleeves as they cannot be lengthened.

    I don't think the jacket sleeves are too short. Rather, the shirt sleeves are too long. TKE, take PSG's advice and move the button on the cuff to narrow the diameter. Easiest way to take care of that.

    Looks a bit snug in the waist in the second pic. What's going on with the arm ripple by the shoulder in the 1st and 3rd pics? Opposite sides respectively.

    Thanks for the feed back everyday. The blue stripped shirt is a little too big all around, sleeves and neck. I think the length of the sleeves on the jacket look better with the white shirt since those sleeves fit me wel. The next blazer I'm buying is a more traditional blazer with a slightly longer body.

    I think the jacket fits correctly. Your shirts make things look off. Slightly longer in the blazer won't hurt, but I don't think this one looks too short.

    Everyone in here please shut up about someone's god damn teeth and stop being nasty. I'm going to start smacking down when I see this stuff. Keep it to constructive criticism and treat each other like you would want to be treated. Already handed out a couple of week timeouts for the tie thing and the teeth comments. Please don't make me have to enforce on you.

    Jacket sleeve lengths can still be lengthened or shortened even when there are real button holes. When shortening the sleeves, the amount to be shortened should not be so much so as to make the edge of the sleeves touch the bottom button on each sleeve. When lengthening the sleeves, the maximum amount to be lengthened is usually 1.5 inches although, by the the time this is done, the distance from the edge of the sleeve to the bottom button would be too great.

    Looks like the sleeves are rotated a bit too far forward? Like the look of the jacket generally.

    That happens with a lot of OTR jacket--especially on guys with thin arms/no back muscle (myself included). It's an easy fix at a tailors; he'll just pinch in the extra fabric. (I'm guessing he'll have some excess fabric at the back, under the arm, too.)

    Hi TKE

    I drew a line across where the jacket should really sit in terms of length.

    [​IMG]

    However it is a modern jacket as you say, so they cut an inch off, save some fabric cost, and call it fashion, so be it....

    So..
    1. Jacket is short
    2. Jacket sleeve ends are short
    3. Shirt cuffs seem wide.
    4. Shirt collar sits low, and too spread for your body shape type (chat to Threadbearer he could help a lot there)

    but..

    You have made a big effort to dress really well, So well done TKE.

    Lovely colours, I like the tie a lot, nice PS.

    Of course, if you were asking me, I would say that a pair of medium to darkish grey trousers would be the ones to choose.

    Having been away for a few days, out in the country, wearing little of interest (or nothing at all), it is good to get back to the city and dress again somewhat in the style of a civilized human being.

    Suit - HF
    Shirt - Tyrhwitt
    Tie - BB
    Cufflinks - M P Levene, London
    PS - PRL
    Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
