How does this suit fit? (Black tie)

I'm thinking it's fine but probably some people here can suggest some nips/tucks to make it sharper?

What is going on with the sleeves on the jacket -- looks like they might be too tight? They don't hang cleanly at all. Jacket might be short from the front view - does it cover your rear?

Trousers are too long but that is more easily fixed than the first two issues.

I think the sleeves might just be crumpled up from where I'd adjusted the shirt before I took the pic?
Took a couple more with my hands hanging by my side. Any better? Or do I just need to swap this suit for another one?

The jacket feels too short. Sleeves need shortening. Trousers drape very oddly and, at the very least, need shortening.

Maybe the jacket is not for me. I have time to take it back still.
Does anyone know where I might look for alternatives in the same price range of around £300-£400? I will rarely wear it so don't want to go crazy but nothing too bargain basement? Somewhere that does a slightly longer jacket without making it much bigger on the shoulder would be ideal.
Alternatively any suggestions for how a good alteration tailor can fix this one?

The sleves, the fall in the back, the length of the jacket... unless you urgently need a tux, I would pass on this one.

I do urgently need one! Got another week to find something better though.
