    I think the sleeve length is good. Can you comment on the fit and fabric quality of Frencheye?

    Sleeve length looks good to me, but the area around your biceps looks to have excess cloth.

    Not sure if you have sloping shoulders, but the jacket appears to be an inch or so too big in the shoulders.

    Do you think this suit will be good for interviews does it generally create a good image?

    Unless you're interviewing for something in the fashion industry, you'll be fine. You wear your suit better than many people. I agree with the posters above about it looking a bit big in the arms and the shoulders, but it's not really that noticeable.

    Thanks how do you mean it's too big in the arms? And how would you rate the fit out of 10.

    On a side note I have been very impressed with Frencheye the quality is absolute fantastic for the price. 100% italien wool for £160!

    Photos with the jacket closed and your arms hanging straight please. Also, a side shot would be good. :)

    There is an excess amount of fabric bunching up around your upper arm/bicep area. For the most part, your sleeves shouldn't bunch up that much when you cross your arm over your body like that.

    I give it a 7 out of 10, its average for what I would expect in an office. Considering the writing in the whiteboard behind you, I take it you're in sales or a customer service call center or something along those lines. The fit and look is average for what I would expect in that kind of environment.

    If you could get a tailor to taper the upper arm area if the sleeve, I'd give it a 9 out of 10. If the shoulder was an inch shorter, it'd be a 9.5/10 out of 10.

    The amount break in your pants looks great by the way. If I HAD to nit pick, I would say the shoes you're wearing throw off the balance since they look much bigger and wider than than your slim tapered pant legs. But it's hard to tell from the picture, and again I'm nit picking at this point.

    Here is another pic? Still 7/10 and yeah I'm in sales but it's pretty high end business to business not call centre. [​IMG]

    Button your jacket with arms hanging like a robot.

    That you need to button your jacket to show your silhouette at its best and so we can actually see how it fits.
