Today is predicted to be quite hot here in NYC - near to 90F/33C - and the need for a jacket is minimal, to say the least, but today's jacket has been hanging in my closet for too long, and it needed an airing. At least it's linen and unlined.

Jacket - Paul Stuart
Shirt & trousers - Brooks Brothers
Pocket square - Roda
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand
Cap - Brooks Brothers

New member here, hi everyone. I just have to say the posts and pictures here in this forum have been of great help and inspiration. Previously always bought OTR suits with minor adjustments this is my first MTM suit.

Any and all advice is appreciated since I am getting the final adjustments made in a couple of weeks. Personally I feel like the jacket could be taken in just slightly, also the sleeve length could be a bit longer and that goes for the pants as well (I do like them a bit shorter and slimmer since this will be a quite casual suit). I'm not sure about the length of the jacket, when looking in the mirror it looks a bit long and the buttons sit a bit low. But when looking at it from photos it looks better.

Jacket length and low buttoning point look good to me. I would definitely lower the sleeves to show 1/4 - 1/2" shirt. Might want to lower the pants hem as well.

Extend half an inch on both arms and legs. Regarding the jacket: it's already quite pronounced in the waist, but I think I see what you are getting at around the chest. How did it feel when moving around, did you try raising your hands above you head? Do you have a picture from behind?

Lengthen the sleeves as mentioned as well as the pants. The jacket is great in the waist, it should fit like a sweater. Personally I would let the trousers out a bit throughout to get a better drape, but that's a personal choice of course.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I just tried raising my hands above my head. Felt some binding in the back, but not too much. What should I look for when doing this? I think the suit feels quite comfortable when moving around.
Also here is a picture of the back

I would recommend the trousers to be a little bit longer.
